    Hello,

    I am French, and I would like to organize a contest of HFT.
    I will also like to create a contest with pistol , but I have a problem with the rules.
    Could you, please, inform me by answering to my few questions.
    Which are the range and diameters corresponding from the targets.
    Which is the limit of power of the pistol?
    Which are the imposed shooting positions, their numbers and their limitations etc

    Thank you in advance for your answers

    Robert

    We'd all love to Ian.

    However, France demands an EFP for visitors with air rifles over 6ft-lbs. However, perhaps as FT and HFT grow, the French target associations may be able to arrange some special dispensation.

    I can see FT and HFT really taking off in France, it has the land, and is easily within travelling distance of many countries.

    Hello,

    In France the legislation is very strange.
    To have a weapon of more than 10 joules it is necessary either to have a hunting licence
    or to belong (have a licence) to the French shooting federation FFT.
    FFT manages all the sports activities which use weapons. But the FFT does not want to recognize the FT or HFT. It is our current fight: to make recognize these leisures like sports and thus be able to organize competitions
