rifle must not be a current model
scope must not be a current model
The rifle not being current - no problem.
The scope not being current - I can see a problem here as some of the scopes that were used back along are still current models! e.g. Leupold 6.5-20 EFR.
Overall I like the sound of a classic FT shoot as even my newest rifle is about 14 years old.

How about instead:
Any rifle and scope you use must both have been in production IN THIS GUISE ten years ago? That may be harder to "police" as whose memory would you accept for this? I took up FT just about ten years ago and I don't have any personal memories of when various items were introduced.

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?
What if you had an up to date gun like a Pro Sport or 97k,would they still be considered?After all they still have 80's/90's technology.I think if you allowed those type of rifles you'd get more people willing to take part,i would no doubt about it.All you have to do is put a scope of similar spec (Tasco 6-24X40 TR or similar) from back in the day and you've got a retro set up ready to go.If you wanted to shoot spring guns and have one of those mentioned above i don't see what the difference will be in spending a shed load of cash and trying to find a decent springer from that era when you have one already,they still look and shoot the same as back then after all.

For AA Pcp, i would say Shamal, 100 series and Rn10. No pro target onwards.
Same for springers, old ones only.

I would not enter "classic" at a Ft gp, i prefere to try and stay in A grade using the Njr.
Would go for a once a year classic event though.
Could even host it at tondu if needs be.

I still prefere the idea of a seperate 1 day event.
classic course, so all full kills + mini eliminators at the end.
Not sure when Pro target came out, but that would be the cut off for me so say 1st protarget was 1996, it would be guns made until 1995.
Scopes could be any model as i dont know how many pre 1996 (for example) scopes are still about.
Make it a "Classic Gun" Comp.

Does that mean the gun only or with a scope of that generation,eg my HW77 FT gun of the 80's era with the Carl Zeiss 3-9x36 I used?

Were they? Later perhaps, but what about from the mid..1984 onwards, before and after the 40mm dias came in.

PS i like the idea of 40 targets . cos it gives people a good day's shooting . and of course 40 mil targets . cos that is what most clubs have nowadays .

I don't think you can slap a date on the rifle age.
For instance, say 1995, AA = -shamal, 100, and Rn10?
But what if some Rn 10 (can be same for other manufactures) were made 1994,95,96? Who is going to have a list of serial numbers and check them, too much red tape!
I think you have to state which guns are eligible.
Same for scopes really. I have no idea when my falcon t35 or Mk4 was produced?
However, can not agree more about using them in Gp. Its nice to shoot well at a gp as I believe I have to shoot alot better to hit 30 with the Njr than I would to say hit 35 with an Ev2?
I still like the idea of a retro class /competion? Perhaps a once a year event.
Big kills (45ml+ ), targets painted as they should be and look like the shape of the plate, black & White magpies, rats with tails, rabbits with whiskers, none of these yellow /white / black joking targets!

When you queue up to get your BSA Airsporter chronographed, be sure to have your bus pass ready for inspection.

Got the guns and targets, but not going to the expense of an old scope i dont need.
