    So there are benchrest springer rules, but are springers actually shot competitively in benchrest? Didn't get much response when I last asked the question.

    Of late springers have been rediscovered by FT, and they have always been popular in HFT, but it would seem that benchrest remains the domain of the PCP. And its not much fun competing against PCP's with a springer.

    Alan, the problem is and always has been - numbers. Interest(or lack thereof) just do not warrant running a separate class for springers during competitions. At SGBSA, we have set a limit of 5 springer entries before we will run a springer class. We had more than 5 springer entries at our first league shoot and never since.

    Thanks Eugene.
    Think there maybe enough interest down here to get more than five springers shooting bench.
    How about it Mynhardt and others?

    all cheap under-levers i.e. QB36, Gamo's, Hutson are allowed. No target quality springer allowed.

    Must be shot from a bench from sandbags or front rest and sand bag at the back.
