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".

April 2010 Results - Don't Tread on Me

For me this was much harder that I thought it would be. So many choices messed with my eyes. Clearly not so hard for others. MrBorland is amazing - perfect score. Well done. Mo, you were nearly perfect too...that is until you forgot to sign your return. Ouch. Sorry Marilyn, but you owe the taxman some jack! Billll, thanks for mentioning the match on your blog. Also, I would like to thank Rob Robideau of the Personal Armament Podcast (one of my favorites) for talking about our postal match on two of his podcasts. There is also a permanent link on his website to this postal match and that of Mr. Completely.
