e-Postal Handgun Match #3 "Jack-N-Jill" Preliminary info

Well, I'm working away on the rules for the next e-Postal handgun match, and I thought I'd let you all know a couple of the advance details, so you can start planning for it.

As you can see, the name of the new match is Jack-N-Jill. As in previous matches, there will be a "Featured" class, but also just about anything else can be entered too.

This time, the featured class will be a team event! YUP! One guy and one lady comprises a team.

Now, if you are thinking about grabbing the best shootin' guy or gal you know, it's not going to work that way, Sorry!

Here's how you select your team member. Start from the top of the list, and work your way down until you get a team-mate. Your team-mate must be opposite sex:

1. Spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend/ or significant other.
2. Member of your immediate family, father, mother, brother, sister, son or daughter.
3. A new or recently new shooter who you have been helping get into shooting.

This is a preliminary list, and is subject to change between now and the release of the official rules!

There's a lot of flexibility here, so I'm sure you can all find a team-mate.

Multiple entries will also be encouraged, and there will be opportunities to enter individually, too.

Just thought I'd give you all a heads up on this, so you can get your team-mate all practiced up, or vice-versa.

Yay!
More shooting!

You must be a homophobe because of your opposite sex requirement.
Cool.

It's Jack and Jill, not Jack and Jack!

Most likely a problem for me "Jill" isn't likely to be back before the match is over, and you know how women get when you look for a substitute!!!

OK, read this and weep. The Rivrdog's selection for Significant Other is his #1 daughter.

Let me give you a bio. The #1 daughter is a former Marine. As a Marine, she was not only one of the 22 who went to the Gulf War 1, but she was NCOIC in charge of all of them. She made Expert Rifleman (and never complained about RifleMAN) on her first attempt, not a mean feat in the USMC.

She went on to distinguish herself at Advanced, being selected to carry the Company Guidon in the Graduation Run, a cross country 3 mile-er. She finished ahead of all the WM's and all but 9 of the men, none of whom where carrying the heavy Guidon.

She then, in moments of leisure, indulged herself in Pistol practice, qualifying but then shooting many, many rounds with both the 1911 and 9mm poodle-shooting pistol.

She will be my partner. Her eyes are not old, they are perfect. My weapons that she will shoot are in perfect condition.

Know these presents, knaves, and quail at the prospects!

Or do you want to hand the match to me now?

Rivrdog, out.

It sounds like the gauntlet has been thrown down. Are we going to idly take this lying down?

Well, yeah, sure, whatever....
(Ooops, wrong answer!)

The throwing down of the gauntlet has been duly noted, so

PREPARE TO STAND AND DELIVER!!

(heh)

My partner is a "good friend" who is coming in from Australia. She has never fired a gun and hasn't ever had the chance coming from such a gun grabbing country. She'll only be here for the next ten days, so I hope the rules are up soon.

We are also gonna get pictures of her firing my AR and Winchester Defender to show her friends at the University where she teaches, that ought to cause a few wigs to come loose.

Brass.

Brass: I'll have the rules up Thursday afternoon late, if all goes as planned. You just might want to get her a little range time to practice a bit before then if possible.

Although the Jack-N-Jill match will be different, using the "Snub-or-not" targets and rules would be a good place to start.

Accuracy will prove to be a good thing....

Good news! I am going to be posting the rules possibly even as soon as tomorrow. I am going to be out of town Fri., Sat., and most Sunday, so I will get them out a little earlier than planned.
