Thanks for posting this John. Saw it on the FT forum but have yet to respond. First off, I want to say it was a great time shooting with some really nice folks. As for the shooting itself, as the write up says I have been shooting a 30 FPE gun and that makes the wind seem almost non-existent. 12 FPE in gusty winds on a tough course like that was, well not great. There were several targets where I was holding completely off of the target in order to make the shot. A big thanks to David Slade for letting Brett and I use his guns. Mine was not quite set up correctly so I had further issues there. But for what it's worth, it was a great experience. I am relatively new to FT but everyone I have met has been more than accommodating in letting me try their guns. I have come to a decision on what I will be getting to get into 20 FPE PCP open class.
I think we got old Brett thinking about it as well. We will in all likelihood be heading to invicta in two weeks so if you want to tag along shoot me a message and I would be happy to work something out to help get you there. And if you need a shooter well that may be accommodated as well. Invicta was a much easier course than the Lazy W was so it would be a great place to try your hand at some FT. And remember, there will be food too!
Hopefully we can get more folks out for FT all over the place. While it may appear that FT folks are snobs because of their amazingly expensive guns, you couldn't be further from the truth. I have yet to meet a rude FT shooter. Heck Brett and I were handed $3000 guns to shoot without so much as a second thought. So please folks, if you are interested come on out and give it a look. And of you need any help getting there let me know.
