Steyr LG100 (2), AA S410 Carbine (2), AA S400 (2), TX200 MKII (2), TX200 MKIII (1), AA Pro Target (1), TX200-SR (1), EV2 (1), and I am going to give a Walther Dominator a try this season.

The one Steyr is the only gun set up for the Open Division. All the other guns are shot in the WFTF Division, so are all set up at sub 12 ft/lb.

These are guns owned by the six governors and I am missing a few that folks have, but may not use regularly.

Some Daystates, Theobens, FWB P70s and the like are common at the matches as well. Most of these, if not all, are only limited by the person behind the trigger.

These are the higher end guns used by folks who have been shooting for a number of years. At matches, we have our share of QBs, Hatsuns, Crosmans, benjamins, Slavias and just about any other gun you can think of.

The results on the CAFTA website have the gear used and may be something a few of you would find interesting. Not only do you see what was used, but also how it performed relative to other guns.

Keep shooting whatever it is you have. It's all fun

Hi Tim

Cheers

I use a QB79 with CO2 and HPA for cold days.
I love it.

Before I was using a Slavia 630 best springer I ever used.

Hi Dave

I use to shoot one back in 2000. I had to sell it in order to get my ld/SS.

Now that I shoot in the sub 12 ft/lb class, I miss that gun.

Why a S410 Carbine - would a extra FAC be to heavy
Is the carbine as quiet
Does the TX MKIII have much of a kick
I like the pcp idea the best
S410 - as then it could be used for more than just FT

The 410 Carbines are used for WFTF Division and both the s400 rifles are used in open or hunter. The shrouded Carbine like the ones we have are just as quiet, maybe even quieter with the low power.

If a TX is tuned to sub 12 ft/lb, like the ones we use, the shot cycle is very smooth. There is recoil, but it is not hash. Even at higher power levels, if all the internal part fit as they should and it has been lubed properly, it will be a smooth shooting gun.

The s410 is a great gun for FT. I have used mine (S400) in all three divisions of FT and done well with it. I even turned it down and used it in the sub 500fps matches we were forced into at the end of 2010 and beginning of 2011. A great rifle for sure.

This is the one I am looking at getting for FT shooting
http://www.airgunsource.com/store/index ... 20RWO&c=77
I thought it would be a good choice
I have it in .22 cal
So some of the spare parts I have should work on it too
Trigger sear - o-rings [ except barrel stuff ]

My s400 is very similar. The repeating part is probably the only difference. Mine likes the JSB heavies at any velocity but more so at the higher end from about 700 up to over 900 fps. I keep mine at about 870fps for the hunter division as the shooting behavior is still quite mild. Accuracy is remarkable. Up over this velocity and you start to feel the push when you shoot it and shot count goes way down.
