Postal Match
« on: December 02, 2021, 09:56:09 AM »
Does GAF still offer the Postal Match?   The GAF website states you can do the Postal Match or do it individually outside of the Postal Match season.   If so, how do I get the correct size targets?

Dart,
....the targets are printable from the webpage. I guess the question are these the proper size for the required distance. If nothing else could be a fun match we could do on our own?

If you guys will message me your address, I've got a GAF postal match ready to go.  I can send you targets, rules, etc. to copy.  I'd love to get this started again!

Gentlemen, I've sent the targets out to the ones who requested them.  The match is based on the Blunt system, but at 25 yards.  The simulated distances are 200 and 300 yards.  I've also got targets made that simulate 500 and 600 yards, but they are almost exactly the same size as the 200 and 300 yard targets.  I would copy the targets on to fairly heavy weight tan paper, and the larger calibers may take more targets, with less shots per target.  I'd like to have monthly matches, but right now I just want your feedback on what you think of the course.  The directions are included for using the same targets for the pistol course. 

Good shooting and let me know how it goes!

So far there are six of us, but I'm hoping we can get it to grow if you guys like it.

Sent out the latest batch of targets and info.  I'm going to try to shoot it by the end of the year, but let's figure on sending me your results by the end of each month.  Just send me pictures of the targets if you don't want to put them in the mail.  The course as I wrote it up is a total of twenty rounds on the 200 yard targets and twenty rounds on the 300 yard targets.  We could try just the 200 yard ones if you don't want to expend as many rounds.  The instructions mention a fee, but don't worry about that for now, at least until we figure out if this works.  Looking forward to seeing how it works!

Me "building a list" is just writing down who's interested in a notebook!  I'm extremely low tech.  I should get yours in the mail tomorrow.

I received my target packet today.  Looking forward to this, but I vote that we shoot twenty rifle for the first time, five rounds at each position.  Now to figure out what rifle and pistol combo I should use.
