e-Postal Match Update -- Rifle Class Added

UPDATE: The barrel length is supposed to be 20 inches or less, not 16 inches in Class Four. What we're looking for are carbines, lever action saddle guns, various 7.62x39 launchers, Mini-14's, and that sort of rifle. Utility "working" rifles, rather than long barreled, long range target or sniper rifles.

Also some of those kid's rifles like the Chipmunk, or some of those older boy's rifles would also be OK.

We'll do another e-Postal match for the long range stuff a bit later.

Since there will be no e-Postal Rifle match this month, I have added a rifle class, Class Four, to the "Seein' Stars" e-Postal match to give you rifle shooters another excuse to get out to the range.

Any rifle with a barrel 20" or less, any caliber, any un-magnified sight.

DISTANCE - Class Four: First target 25 Yards, second target 50 yards.

FIRST TARGET SHOOTING POSITION: Standing, un-supported, off-hand, one or two hands on gun permitted.

SECOND TARGET SHOOTING POSITION: Any shooting position - bench rest allowed. No gun vises or clamps. We are testing your skills, not the guns!

Go to the original "Seein' Stars" post for the complete rules and to download the targets.

If I don't have a 25yd rifle range handy, can I submit 2 50yd targets?

Looks like I'll be SOL for the rifle match - don't have anything that short!

Sounds like both of you need to go buy some Hi Point carbines!

You can shoot any target from a farther distance, just not any closer!

nothing that short, dang. And Wade's has some AR's for rent, but max range is 25 yards. :p

So I'll just do 50 and 100 and compete against myself. :)

Alright, I'm there. This tuesday I'm gonna have at it with an ultra compact kimber .45 and I'll rent both an AR-15 in 9mm and a bolt action .22 rifle to shoot at 25 yards at Wade's. Whoop!
