What is a Postal Match?

Before the internet, if friendly target shooters wanted to compete against one another they could either meet together and exchange targets, or they would participate in a Postal Match. Typically these contests were a standard course of fire that the participants shot, then mailed to the contest organizer for tally. Since the internet can provide us with nearly instant feedback, and we can trade many different targets, it seems to be an ideal format for the "Modern Postal Match".

September 2009 Match Results

Sorry this match was so much harder than the previous.

Coney Island Shooting Gallery
Remember that scoring was based upon how much of the star you were able to shoot out. The more star gone, the higher you ranked.

Class 1 (Rimfire, Iron Sights)
  1. Bob Parada
  2. Marilyn Shabbick

Class 3 (Centerfire, Iron Sights)

   1) Gray Stahlman
  2) Jeff Stone

Unlimited Centerfire
Ok so I cheated. I used my wife's S&W Model 66 revolver with laser grips and .38 special wadcutters. I wanted to see if it was even possible to "win". The verdict...no way. I think just like on the midway, this game is rigged to be a loser.

Because this turned out so hard, I am going to give all  participants a prize. Bob and Marilyn will BOTH get 2 boxes of .22LR bullets each. Jeff will get a box of 50 Blazer Brass 9mm. Thanks for playing. Enjoy!!!!
