New Postal Match

Post by g.willikers » Mon Feb 11, 2013 9:09 am

Put a bunch of separate targets on a single backing, circles, squares, whatever.
Unless you can set up a number of separate targets on individual stands.
Five or six will do.
Size will depend on distance.
But make them large enough to hit, but small enough to be challenging.
Number each one.
This takes two people.
One to do the shooting and the other to call the numbers.
The idea is to only hit the numbered targets that are called out.
Any sequence, but only the ones called.
One round per target, as called, from the low ready position.
This requires both noodle work and shooting skills, combined.
Good practice.
If you can't find anyone else to play, then use playing cards to decide the numbered cards to shoot.
Use only the cards with the correct numbers.
Start them face down and turn them over to know the ones to shoot.

It's not important as to the gun, or the distance.
You decide what you want to use.
Or what needs practice.
The idea is to practice decision making and awareness, as well as shooting skills.
Just try to hit the right targets as fast as you can.
If it's too easy, move back, or use smaller targets, or call out more targets.
It's supposed to be a skill builder.
