Response to Has there ever been a North or S. American shooter in the WHFT championships?

At different times, I've tried elements of real HFT, prone/terrain features(lane posts in this case)/no_bipod:

And I've shot a whole match without touching the scope. At last years Piston Championships, that's also how the six Basic Break Barrel shooters did it:

The prone shooting is not bad once you get used to it. Even if they did not allow seats, I think they should at least allow sitting shots.

The no-touch-scope might be harder for us to get used to, but very doable if you keep the magnification low.

I would probably never travel overseas to shoot HFT, but would compete here if there was such a match.

It's bigger than any other FT type game, but mostly a UK sport, by far
