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".

I found another active online postal match
Continuing my attempt to ferret out all the online postal matches, I came upon the following link to the Ruger Forum postal matches. Looks like this one is actually active, as compared to some of my other links.
