A highlight of the target- shooting season, the 2018 BFTA Grand Prix Series, consists of eight rounds that take place throughout the country at some of the finest shooting clubs in the UK. After a highly competitive spring/summer of shooting, Team Air Arms finished the season in first place positions in a number of categories.
Jack Harris led the way with his Air Arms EV2, capturing first place in the Open Class, finishing with a grand total of 584.74 points. Equally impressive this year has been Air Arms Springer team member, John Farbrother who took home the Championship in the spring- gun classification. By hitting 250 targets throughout the competition, John was the clear winner with over 25 target hits ahead of the next place position.

Air Arms Field Target Captain, James Osborne is extremely pleased with the team’s performance: ‘The team have once again showcased their incredible shooting skills against some of the finest competitors I’ve seen. The competition has been really close, coming down to the wire. I am happy to announce that we have taken on the challenge and I couldn’t be prouder of the team and everything they have achieved. I would like to thank Claire West and the Air Arms team for all of their amazing support.’
