But that is such a good idea, that it seems like a good excuse to get a blast from my past just to shoot in the comps

How could you prove it was pre 1990?
Very few guns have date marks but dare say records might be kept.

PS if just 5 people shot it at each GP . that would be 5 more bums on 5 more seats .

We dont need our own class Holly, its more fun betaing "modern" guns in the same class of shooter as ones self. That for me is A class, you AA. My aim is just to stay in A at Bfta level.
So lets looking forward to taking some scalps with the older guns as they are in 2010.

SFT 6 did more than 6 shoots, AA around 37.
Not knocking it but its still creating a class for nothing, need to draw the line some where, else we would have a class for every single shooter that will win a prize.
Up to 2005 i did use a 1993 hand made one off rifle, the question that would need to be asked is would people travel 300 to 400 miles round trip and shoot their older less preferred guns. I dont see any one wishing to do that except yourself but a different matter if its the only gun a shooter has.

Cant think why not lol
Anyway, when you score less that 35 with the shammal, will you sell me your trigger as its going to waste and could be at a good home!
Have to say i can not consider it "Classic" unless using a scope of lower mag, 6-20 as with the classic times? 1990 era for me.

good to show the youngsters how it was done 20+ years ago with low mag scopes with the 30/30 ret and using holdover/under.
whats the betting that most competitors turn up with hw77 mk2's?

Ok, so it's not a class per se, but you will have your own records of how the 8 of you did, you can always sort out a prize yourselves, and seeing it as a team might attract more shooters... obviously it's unlikely you'll win, but then that's not the point of doing it in the first place...

ah but Roger can shoot, dont think he would want to be seen with me and Holly, come to that dont think i want to be seen with .....!
Anyway, there was another Njr and a Tm doing Gp rounds last year?

Possibly with both a Ft and Hft course?
Guns must be 12+ years old? Not sure if it would be easier to list guns not allowed /allowed?.
Later in the summer, dates allowing? Give people time to sort it out?
Posted 23 February 2010 - 11:17 AM
whatever... sure it would be quite well thought of, think there's quite a few that would like to dust off some old gear now and then.

There won't be that great a number taking part so you could even have say three or four targets per lane if space was tight. You won't need lots of firing positions concurrently.
Main specific rules:
rifle must not be a current model
scope must not be a current model
Those are easy rules to understand and monitor.
If you start to add Formula 1 homologation type rules the idea will be dead in the water, too complicated.
