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".

October 2010 Match Results - Zombie Apocalypse

Whew! I think we have beaten them back. You know, however that zombies can reorganize and strike with little warning. Keep your eyes open.

Thanks for all who participated this month. Some new players have joined the ranks. Hopefully, more will follow. Looks like we only had centerfire entries this month so I went and shot some rimfire.

Class 1 - Rimfire/Iron Sights

GSG 1911, .22LR

Ruger MkIII, .22LR
Class 3 - Centerfire/Iron Sights


Handbuilt 1911, .45ACP
Score=12 Z-Pump is DEAD,
therefore the body shots count


SmokyBaer's Shootin Iron

Blair Ellis
Sig P238 .380
Score = Swiss Cheese
Mike McDonald
S&W M&P 9mm
Score = 14

So I know everyone is waiting for the prizes. SmokyBaer nailed 'em with the best score. Because there were no other rimfire entries (and I am not going to award a prize to myself), I think that Blair Ellis should be inducted into the Zombie Hunter fraternity. Maybe he didn't use the least number of shots, but his fusilade sure had a psychological effect. (Besides, he clearly spent the most money on that shoot)

Thanks for all who played along. Join us for the November match.

Now, go out there and go shooting. And while you are at it, take someone along who has never been shooting and teach them about our sport.
