    I think we should just have one class...and use HFT rules with a reduced course at half the distances.
    ANy position for shooting should be allowed too...

    to start off but my co2 & spring pistols just don't have the accuracy or power of a pcp - kind of like unscope B2 vs Steyr...

    But still agree it looks like fun - anyone else up fo it?

    cool...but I think we keep it simple and easy to start off...don't want to make it too difficult and scare people off!

    In the UK where handguns are banned the pistol shooters now use air pistols under 6fpe to shoot the 25m.disciplines---same targets---their scores are better---fact!
    They use wadcutter pellets.Don't downplay the air pistol it can do the job

    I wouldn,t worry about scopes to start off with and I reckon the handgun silhouette "lying on your back" with your rist against your leg shooting position could be cool

    that's the Creedmore position...won't really work with a scope though.

    I would suggest any position goes as long as the pistol is supported by the body only and no bipods or artificial supports

    Will see what we can do - maybe we can arrange something with our next shoot - same course as the HFT/FT but only the targets closer than 25m?

    Any ideas? what do you guys think?

    I reckon we set the course up as usual and the pistol guys come an hour before and all we do to accommodate them is to peg danger tape down much closer to the targets than the rifle shooting point, that way when they are done we can do a quick spraypaint reset and they can haul their rifles out of their cars just in time to sight in for the normal shoot!

    Guido, I know the HW40 isnt a patch on the LP50 or LP10 or even the SAM,s but do you think it,s accurate enough to get the job done?
