I loved the idea, I never participated cause last time I simply just could not get to the range, but every forum I have ever known the organized the postal match, they never worked out or lasted more than 1 -2 rounds.
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

You could always start one up and post it. Why wait for someone else to do it for you? :-k

I've started several, however the overall response has been a bit lacking.

Feel free to start one. My wife and I enter our targets.

Might I suggest you also review this posting.

There is an undeniable cultural difference. It's the difference in the mindset of those who believe they are owed a living, and those who believe success is the result of hard work.

I'm about ready to do another postal match. I've been practicing and might even be able to keep them all on paper now, LOL. I really liked the red center targets that Onree had us shoot last Spring. The red center makes it easy for my old eyes to see. I saved that one to my computer, now if I could just figure out how to post it here.

Here it is.

Make up some rules, use old ones - whatever works for ya.
