Sarpa Hunter League

SARPA Hunter League Round 2

Funny how we all become closet meteorologists in the run up to a shoot, isn’t it? All of us checking our favourite weather websites, hourly forecasts noted, the chance of rain and low temperatures prepared for, Chairgun checked for 10mph winds, out on the range day before in 10mph winds getting the windage dialled in. But no, come the day of the shoot the sun’s out, there’s no wind, and sweaty balls are on the menu. Anyways enough of this nonsense, we are off to New Kypeside for Round 2 of the SARPA Hunter League. New Kypeside is a small… Keep Reading

Just add a touch of “M.A.D. – ness” –
S.I.H.F.T. Round 3

Sunday 15 May saw Swallows Field Target Club hosting the first of two visits that this extremely popular summer series at their grounds just to the East of Brighton. In addition to the regular 5 Sussex HFT clubs, Iden Ferns, Maldon (M.A.D.), and Meon Valley (M.V.A.C.) had also been invited to compete this year as Guest Teams, though M.A.D. had pretty much been conspicuous by their almost complete absence from the previous two rounds.

2016 HFT Masters Series – Round 1 – Cambridge

Scottish HFT Round-up

HFT north of Hadrian’s Wall is really going from strength-to-strength, and CompAir’s John McBam brings you all the very latest goings-on from around the Scottish HFT circuit. Up here in Scotland we have two major leagues, the SARPA Hunter league and the UKAHFT affiliated league (UKAL). The UKAL league has been run for the last two years very successfully by Stuart Webb, and kicks off its third season with a visit to the ground at Cloybank Estates, with the Cloybank Phoenix Club playing host to Round 1.

60 Seconds with…Pete Sparkes

CompAir takes time out with the man behind the UKAHFT National Series and HFT World Championships How long have you been shooting for, and what got you into HFT? About 15 years. I started the UKAHFT after being introduced to an HFT competition, and deciding that I wanted something that ran to a different format. What rifle and scope do you currently use? And how have you got it all set up (e.g. parallax distance, magnification, height of mounts, etc.) I use an Air Arms S500, EB Sniper scope with Sportsmatch medium mounts, running 10x magnification and parallaxed at 23… Keep Reading
