This is Dart Liebrandt, alias is Lite Colonel.  I shoot a Pedersoli reproduction 1873 Springfield Trapdoor carbine in 45-70, and an Uberti reproduction 1875 Schofield revolver in 45 Colt.  Both calibers loaded with black powder.  It was a lot of fun to shoot.  I plan to shoot the postal match in January.

Good Shooting Lite Colonel!
It is always nice to hear what pairing other folks are using to shoot this.  Next time I think I will shoot my Krag and Colt New Service, or maybe go earlier and shoot it with my Colt Navy and Spencer.  It makes me go out and shake some of the dust off these old relics and give them a go.
Niederlander, can a competitor just shoot the Rifle or Pistol portion of the match? 
Again, fun match and thanks for putting this on.

Yes, you can shoot either rifle, or pistol, or both!

In the past, when I was running it (ancient history) we even allowed you to make multiple entries.

Whether we do that now or not is up to Col. Niederlander

This enlightenment changes things, I can easily compete in the pistol part of match (I have that distance at the home gallery :))

I'll use my 45 SAA
and if allowed to make multiple entries I'll use my S&W Russian 
when planets align...do the deal !

As far as multiple entries, I'm only going to count one entry per month.  (Otherwise, we could have one shooter win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.)   I think we will add an Expansion Era class, though. 

I may address this again in the future, but for now we'll stick with one.  (You all may have noticed this is still evolving.  You never know, I may be able to talk the General into letting this count towards earning your GAF Marksmanship Medal........)

Oh, it already does:
"The preferred and recommended method to achieve a Marksmanship Award is to shoot a specified course of fire that is essentially based on the Army qualifications from the 1880s, but at a reduced-sized target at reduced ranges to accommodate the modern shooter. This course of fire may be completed either independently at any time convenient to the member, or through competition in the semiannual GAF postal match, achieving a score of at least 85% of the total possible score."

Cool!  So, do we have to hit 85% once, or as an average?

Does that include precision pistol and rifle at local skirmishes then too?
