Illness and bad weather has delayed this post for a few weeks, but I finally managed to catch up with Gaz and his Daystate Tsar for the second instalment of the HFT kit check series. Continue reading “HFT Kit Check #2 – Daystate Tsar”
Hi all. This post is a little tester of a feature I want to run next year. The plan is to do a kit check of various HFT competitors. From beginners to champions and everyone in-between.
The first post in this series will be my current HFT setup. Any suggestions about other things I can ask will be appreciated. Enjoy! Continue reading “HFT Kit Check #1”
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.
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 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!”
These are just my thoughts on the subject so take them with a pinch of salt. Maybe take this as a starting point, but ask around and always pick up as many guns as you can before making a decision.
If you have never tried HFT before, and you own a sub 12ft-lb air rifle my answer is simple. Just use that. You will be able to get a taste for the sport without spending any money beyond some pellets and £4 or £5 club entry. Continue reading “HFT – Springer vs PCP”
Today’s post is my first one looking at some of the kit I use. When I first started HFT I didn’t have a shooting mat. But now I wouldn’t go without one (unless I forget it!). Continue reading “Shooting Mat”
