Morning all, my name is Euan Bowie.

I have been shooting HFT for around 8 years. My competition rifle is a Webley Longbow .177, Logun Silencer and a full VMach tune by Steve Pope. The VMach tuning improved my score by around 4 points to where I used to average around 53. It now has an SE stock fitted free from Welbley after I came 2nd in the recoiling class at the first HFT Worlds in 2009.

I look forward to talking to you all and sharing as much knowledge, tips and training as I can.

I cannot thank Lloyd enough for all the help and support that he has given me since moving to South Africa from Scotland 3 1/2 years ago. A truly great friend.

Cheers
Euan

Worlds

Postby Bowie EA » Fri Oct 26, 2012 2:39 pm

Hi Codi,

Nope only shot the 2009, I have been working in South Africa since Feb 2009 and had to fly back to the UK to shoot the Worlds. It took a lot of practice and time away from my wife training for the Worlds which I dedided to not do for the next few years. Basically spend time out here and see South Africa. I have also taken up bow hunting as that is illegal in Scotland, hence maximise oppertunities here.

I must say that not being able to compete for Scotland due to not being able to shoot the qualifying rounds does hurt, but there will be other times in the years to come.

Really looking forward to competing again in RSA.
