This is the final part of my mini scope series, intended for beginners to HFT. In this post I will be looking at how to set your scope up specifically for HFT. The main theme here will be ‘personal preference’ so apologies if I repeat that lot. I will mention my generic setup, to get you going though.
This post has again been kindly sponsored by In Your Sights. The 10% discount code still applies on everything on their website (including all of the scopes). See the end of the post for the code.

Today was my second visit to Zone HFT and like the last time, it didn’t disappoint. However unlike the last time, my gun was working fine and I made a promise with myself to not mess with it the night before! Continue reading “HFT – Zone 7/10/17”
Today was Round 1 of the Daystate Midland Hunter Series at Nomads HFT club in Worcestershire. Great course, great atmosphere, but mixed feelings about my own performance…
Found time for a short write up this evening. Continue reading “DMHS Round 1 – Nomads”
Welcome to part 2 of 3 of my beginners guide to scopes for HFT. Firstly I would like to say this post has been very kindly sponsored by the team at ‘In Your Sights’. They supply a range of shooting accessories and scopes, and have agreed to give you all a massive 10% off anything on their website. At the bottom of the post you will find another link to their site, and a promotional code.
Part 2 of this series is all about how to set the scope up on the gun, and some pit-falls to watch out for. You can use as little or as much of the information as you need. Some of it may be too much detail for garden plinking, but hopefully all of it will be interesting.

I was recently chatting to the guys at ‘In Your Sights’ (THESE GUYS) about scopes and HFT. Specifically they were interested to know what features I thought were important for beginners, or people crossing over into HFT for the first time.
This got me thinking about all the things I wish I’d known when I was first starting out. The list grew and grew, and I’ve ended up splitting this post into three parts to try and cover it all properly:
- Scope features explained
- How to set up your scope
- How to use your scope for HFT
This post is Part 1, and I’m aiming for one post per week on this.

I take quite a bit of pride in being able to strip down all my springers. I know what all the parts do, I can service them and I can put them all back together again. So it can be a bit humbling to miss something as obvious as this….. Continue reading “Shooting Springers – Lesson learnt!”
I’d been hoping to get to Zone HFT for a while, but various other commitments kept clashing with their shoots. This weekend I was finally free, but gun troubles almost stopped me going. However I decided to go anyway for the experience and I’m very glad I did! Continue reading “HFT – Zone 10/09/17”
In the last week I found that I haven’t been able to find the time to write a blog post. In fact I’ve barely had time to get out with a gun. This got me thinking about what motivates me to write and shoot, and how this relates to my goals and what I want to achieve.

This is a quick update on the Tyrolean, but also a warning about after market springs!
I’ve had a bit of a change of heart this week about the future of the Tyrolean HW80. I was planning on stripping and repairing the stock, then sorting out a tuning kit for it. However a new project has taken over almost all of my space in the workshop which will be taking up space for a while. Continue reading “Tyrolean HW80 – Part 3”
I’ve been waiting to write an HFT post for a few weeks now but I keep forgetting to take my camera to get some good photo’s. Luckily I’ve been given some I can use.
This is the club where I first tried an actual HFT competition, and I’ve been back 3 times since. This is a brief look at the club, and how my last comp went. Continue reading “HFT – Kingsley 13/08/17”
