Response to Limited equipment in AAFTA

Not that I would be much of a threat.
I think this takes FT back to the beginning.

I first shot FT just before 9/11.

Then the sport was just beginning in the USA.

I remember seeing those space guns.
EV2 I think they were.

I had my R1 with Beeman 66R 2-7X scope.

I shot a 9 but I won my class because then they arranged the shooters by strength of scope.

9/11 happened and I became very busy at work (air traffic controller) and FT was not important to me.

After retiring (again) in 2007 I took up the sport of airguns.

I think it was 2013 I when I was invited to try FT again.

I showed up again wth the same R1 and scope configuration.

I shot the very same score of 9 that I shot the first time.

This time though I had the time and money to learn about the sport.

The sport has grown from it infancy with the various classes figured out (just like archery field target) along established equipment restrictions.

I do not know if this is good thing though.

If it brings more shooters out, it is a good thing.

But to return to the basics, springers only, 12X or less, no sticks, no sitting (exceptions for health reasons) less than 12fpe, etc. I think is a very refreshing approach.

Sort of like hunting with a single shot rifle/pistol with only one round of ammunition.

Just my thoughts.

But I like your thoughts, Scott.
