I'd like to buy a new gun and start shooting HFT, but realistically wont have the time and money this year.
I do have a 30 yard range in the backyard and a dusty Daisy 953 with a Tasco 2.5x12 mildot scope. It has the Pilk trigger tune, but I haven't spent much time dialing it in beyond shooting minute of beer can at 40 yds with generic Crosman CPH/Premier pellets.
The 953 is probably putting out 4 ftlbs at the muzzle. I'm going to pick up a Gamo Squirrel, but it remains to be seen whether it will react at 30 yds.
I ordered a couple tins of 8.64 H&N Trophy pellets and hopefully they will work with the 953's fast twist barrel, and shoot a bit flatter than the 10.5 Crosman pellets.
I'm of the opinion that any trigger time is a good thing, but I also know its possible to ingrain bad habits, so I'd appreciate any feed back that will help me hit the ground running when I can swing a dedicated HFT rig. Thanks, Woody
