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".

February 2010 Match - To Your Heart's Desire

In celebration of Valentine's Day, we have a heart theme. The scoring will take a little strategy as you can see below. The smaller the heart, the more points. Highest score wins. Each heart can only count ONCE, so you had better think about each shot.

Download the target by clicking the RED link below

Shoot as many times as you like, but remember that you can only enter once per class.
Email all of your entries to postalmatch@gmail.com no later than February 28th.

10 shots
10 yards 5 yards, any grip

Each heart only counts ONCE. If you hit one heart twice, or you hit two hearts with one shot, it still only counts once. Think out your strategy.

Small hearts = 20, Medium hearts = 10, Large hearts = 5
Maximum score is 120 points (Three small, 5 medium, 2 large)
