Field Targets (FT) is a competitive form of target shooting in which the targets are knock-down metal silhouettes of animals, with a 'kill zone' cut out of the steel plate. Hunter Field Targets (HFT) is a variation, using identical equipment  The distances FT and HFT competitions are shot at range. In the UK, competition power limits are set at the legal maximum for an unlicensed air rifle, i.e. 12 ft.lbf (16 J).
Air guns represent the oldest pneumatic technology. The oldest existing mechanical air gun, a bellows air gun dating back to about 1580, is in the Livrustkammaren Museum in Stockholm. This is the time most historians recognize as the beginning of the modern air gun.
