Talented hunter field target shooters travel the country to battle it out in the highly competitive UKAHFT National Series. The Air Arms HFT Team put on a strong performance in round two.
The 2018 UKAHFT National Series consists of nine rounds throughout the spring/summer months. Round two and three took place at the Misfit HFT Club in Leicester on 23rd – 24th June. Although it is still early in the season, finishing strong in the early stages of the competition is very important. The Air Arms team were able to secure an impressive collection of trophies.
Stand out performances came from Mark Wilson, who narrowly missed out on first place in the Open Class by a single point. However, his score of 54 was enough to take home 2nd place. Gary Chillingworth continued his incredible shooting in the Recoil Class and yet again finished with top honours. Fellow Air Arms shooter Jason Lockett ended the day in 1st place of the .22 Class. Closing out the Air Arms HFT team impressive collection of wins was Mike Burgess, who took home 1st place in the Veteran Class.
Air Arms Managing Director, Claire West was incredibly pleased with the team’s performance. “The HFT guys are performing incredibly well in what most would consider difficult shooting conditions with the extreme heat-wave we’ve been having. A massive well done to everyone involved.”
Round four will take place on the 21st July at the M.A.D Air Rifle Club in Chelmsford.
