There’s lots of fun to be had with Grampian Air Rifle Club!

At Garc we try and cater for all types of informal airgun shooting.Whether you want to plink away with a pistol or rifle at Denwood or,get a bit more adventurous,and try HFT in the woods at Waulkmill.

Hunter Field Target (HFT) is a target sport combining Field Target Shooting but in hunting type senarios which creates a fun, challenging and competitive sport for all the family. There are shooters of all ages and abilities that regularly take part in the sport, either at their local club and competing nationally on the UKAHFT circuit

Our new Team GARC Jackets

 A typical HFT course that follows the UKAHFT rules consists of 30 metal knockdown targets at distances ranging from 8 to 45 yards. The targets are laid out in consecutive lanes, with each lane comprising of a lane marker (usually its number), a peg, a target reset string, and of course the target itself. The main skill of HFT is target range estimation, because the target ranges are not actually shown. It is this skill that makes a "marksman" shooter. Of course, you need to know your equipment too! The best thing about HFT, is practice makes perfect! You get two-minutes to shoot each target, although most people take less than a minute. As already mentioned, each lane has a peg - the shooter must be touching this peg by his/her body or gun when the shot is fired.

 Shooting an HFT course does not require any special equipment other than an air rifle fitted with a telescopic sight. You may use any air rifle, as long as it within the legal limit of 12 ftlbs. (You may have your rifle checked at the club, if you are unsure of its power). Telescopic sights are not essential, but they are highly recommended. Shooting a 45 yard target with "open sights" would be extremely difficult (although not impossible). Rifles used in HFT vary a great deal, from recoiling "break barrels" to the latest Pre-charged Pneumatic (PCP) rifles.
