Hey guys, Do you think the Diana 34 with Bushnell Legend 5-15x40 scope is good enough for FT?

And are there any FT places around Richmond BC, or anywhere in greater Vancouver?

Thanks!

I used my Crosman 2289 and a Bushy 3-9x40 for a couple events last year and had a great time! This year, I intend to use my AR2078 and the same scope...Unless I win the lotto :lol:

Shoot the best set up you can afford and have fun. Don't shy away if you don't have the best... This is a great sport and you will have a great time no matter where you place.

All the best...Looking forward to shooting a match on the West Coast one day :D :D

Wow!... there's been a few from the BC area looking to organize, hope you guys find a place to hold FT matches soon....

If I had the rig you just described, it would be out with me in a second... Love the accuracy of the Diana's, good triggers, good trajectory in .177 and with the Bushnell Legend 5-15x40 scope on it, you're right there in HFT ready mode ... 8)

That's be fine for FT shooting, especially in the Hunter category, which is 1 point for face hit, 2 points for knock down.
