I've been to the BFTA site but can find no mention of who was shooting what in the piston class. Does anyone know what the top 10 were shooting?

Both Norwegians were shooting a TX200 (not the SR version) and John Smeding was using a HW90, would you believe it.

Peter,

Are you counting Andy Kays as a Norwegian? I have nothing against SR's being used in the Pistion Class, in fact I beleive that is where they ought to be. But, it is nice to see that not everyone is using them. I have never shot a well tuned HW90, but I would like to.

Thanks to all. I took third in the piston class at the NYS Championships with an untuned HW-77k shooting kodiaks at 700fps.

Strange - there was a weird little smiley on the 'yep' post a while ago !

The BFTA results list is not entirely correct, 'cos the other Nordmann (Tom Øverland) was shooting a precharged BEESA.

Dave Mills shot with a Weihrauch HW77.

My bro shot with him.

Dave M definitely did not! He was only just back from nearly snuffing it in Holland!
Dave Mills however was using his HW77 (and not mine!;) :f
