From now on in HFT comps if we have over 5 shooters using a recoiling gun there will be a trophy for that class.
Letís not get into to much debate on this matter as itís only for a plastic cup not the crown jewels.
Please remember when you book in at the shoots to state if you are using a recoiling gun as you will have a different colour score card at some venues (this is not because you are freaks
:D its because easier to work out the scores at the end)

Perhaps if this gets popular throughout the series, next year there may be a few places up for grabs but for now it's for just top score.

An Excellent idea Mr Sparks,it can only encourage more shooters to take up HFT.:)

Pete,
Would it be OK to book 2 rounds, pcp then shoot with a sringer?

If there is room in the last session and we have plenty of time/spaces then maybe but only your first session score would count.

I think this will help make HFT even more beginner-friendly, something that FT sort-of attempts to do via its division system (based on a running average of recent scores).

No doubt there will need to be decisions made for gasrams, springers with opposing pistons and those with recoil absorbing sledges. :)

Will SR's qualify for this class?

I know they're only semi-recoiling but they ARE harder to do HFT with than a PCP is.

Excellent move guys, well done.
MattF and I were discussing this the other day...
... and we came to the conclusiion that Matt would still be sh*t whatever he used:D

Pete, can you email or PM me please with your phone number mate, I managed to lose it in my recent 'move'

Cheers - Craig

SR's and Whiscombes are classed as non-recoiling ! They (and other multi-piston, and sledge designs) are not classic springers are they ?! I was VERY upset to find this out when I had my SR.

It's a shame, because it would be nice to see people compete with them as they are lovely guns.

So go out and get yourself a Longbow/Sidewinder and have fun with a propper springer ;-)

PS, well done Pete, this is a great step forward for springers. I'll bring mine to the next Welsh comp - as I live in Carmarthen now.
