    Open Shoot Incorporating Vintage FT Competition - Redfearn FTC - Saturday 9th October

    It’s time to get those old beauties out of the cabinet for a well-earned & overdue day out doing what they do best. Redfearn FTC are holding an open shoot on Saturday 9th October which will incorporate some Vintage FT competitions.

    It’s 35 years since the BFTA was formed & in 1987 the first shoot rules were published so it is fitting that we use these as a base for this shoot.

    30 targets
    10-50 yards
    2 minutes per lane
    40mm kills
    Any shooting position allowed
    Some targets designated as standing only
    Rifle slings can be used as a means of steadying the aim, but no other support for the rile may be used
    Seats satisfying current BFTA rules may be used for sitting or to support kneeling shots

    The shoot is open to everyone to shoot whatever rifle / scope they please but there will be some specific classes for some vintage battles to take place.

    After consulting with a number of old-school FT shooters, all agree the biggest game-changer for the sport was high mag, range finding scopes so for all vintage classes any pre 2000 rifle and scope may be used, with the rules for the individual classes being based around scope specifications & rifle aids that were typical for each particular decade.

    80’s Piston Class & 80’s PCP Class:
    MAX 18 MAG & PLAIN RETICLE (OPEN SIGHTS WELCOME - HAVE YOU GOT THE MINERALS???)
    NO HAMSTERS
    BUTT HOOKS – STANDARD, INCLUDING ADJUSTABLE WEGU TYPE ALLOWED
    NO WINDICATORS OR LEVELS ALLOWED
    NO SHOOTING JACKETS
    90’s Piston Class & 90’s PCP Class:
    PRE 2000 HIGH MAG / RANGE FINDING SCOPES ALLOWED
    BUTT-HOOKS – STANDARD, INCLUDING ADJUSTABLE WEGUS, PLUS SIMPLE FT STYLE
    SIMPLE BUTT-HOOKS SUCH AS TE THE ANSCHUTZ ARMADILLO. NO OVER THE SHOULDER ARMS/LINKAGE.
    HAMSTERS THAT ARE A STANDARD FEATURE, SUCH AS THE NJR STOCK, OR A SIMPLE HAMSTER SUCH AS A FIXED LUMP OF WOOD ALLOWED. NO HAMSTER ADJUSTMENT ALLOWED ON THE COURSE.
    WINDICATORS & LEVELS ALLOWED
