Emerging as the fresh alternative to the traditional offerings of Target Rifle, the recent growth in competitors for F-Class Standard has without a doubt represented the revival in the future growth and development of competitive rifle shooting in Australia. We are of course not alone as this is a phenomenon which is being felt by many of the modern full bore shooting Nations of the world.
As with its Target Rifle counterpart, F-Class Standard has been welcomed by a diverse range of competitors. In both catering to the older and more experienced full bore shooter, who perhaps has become challenged by the associated fatigues of supporting the rifle in the prone position or the inspired sporting shooter with a passion for long range accuracy, F-Class Standard has the potential to cater for all persons interested in shooting. Experienced shooters may rightfully argue that F-Class Standard can also serve as a beneficial development tool in introducing a new participant to the sport and perhaps ultimately towards that of the challenges of traditional Target Rifle.
