e-Postal Match "SCATTERGUN" Now Underway!

WOO HOO!! It's time for the 2015 monthly Mr. Completely's e-Postal matches to get underway, so here we go! We're starting out the series with a brand new target, and it should be challenging, but not too challenging. Remember, every e-Postal match always turns out harder than it looks, so even if you shoot what you think is a very low score, send it in anyway, you might just be surprised at how well you actually did!

This month we have seven classes, so there's a place for just about everything. It's time to drag out all those handguns that have been unused all Winter and limber 'em up!

TARGET: The same target is used in all classes. The target can be downloaded from here:


It is an Adobe Acrobat PDF file.

CLASS ONE: Any rimfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, iron sights.

CLASS TWO: Any rimfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, optic sights, no magnification.

CLASS THREE: Any centerfire (non-revolver) handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, iron sights.

CLASS FOUR: Any centerfire (non-revolver) handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, optic sights, no magnification.

CLASS FIVE: Any revolver with no more than a 12" barrel, iron sights.

CLASS SIX: Any revolver with no more than a 12" barrel, optic sights, no magnification.

CLASS SEVEN:
Any handgun with more than a 12' barrel, or any rifle, any sights, scopes, laser, whatever.

If you have something interesting to shoot that doesn't quite fit into the above classes, go ahead and enter anyway.

DISTANCE
: 25 feet, or Ten yards, which ever is available at your range.

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

SCORING: You are allowed 20 shots at the target. Each circle can only be counted once, regardless of how many times you hit it. Only clean hits count as a positive number value. If you hit the black ring, or even just graze the black, the score for that circle gets a minus sign in front of it! Only clean kills, or be penalized! If you have a clean hit fully inside the black, and you hit the black of that circle with a later shot, the score for that circle now goes negative. Once an individual circle goes negative, you cannot change it back to positive for that circle. The target has a perfect score of 140.

Ties will be decided solely on the basis of  whoever sends the largest amount of cash (in un-marked bills) to Mr. Completely.... (Rimfire ammo will also be accepted!)


Mark your score and details on each target with a legible pen, along with the class and type of gun used. Don't write your name on the target, only the name you want to appear in the results, as your target may get posted on Mr. Completely.

STRATEGY: Are you better off to risk trying for the high score smaller circles first, or should you play it safe and be sure to get the easier ones of lower value?

MULTIPLE ATTEMPTS: Sure, shoot it as many times as you like, and send in the best one!


MULTIPLE ENTRIES: You can enter more than once, in fact, it is encouraged. Shoot everything you own, and everything you can borrow! Take a buddy to the range, get him entered, then borrow his gun and enter that! The only restriction is that you can only enter once for any given gun, in any individual Class. You can shoot the target as many times as you like, and send in the best one.

Different calibers in the same gun count as one gun. For example, .38SPL and .357MAG are considered as one, as would be .44SPL and .44MAG. Different guns of the same caliber and barrel length can be entered.

PRIZES: Nope, it's just for the fun of it and the bragging rights!

SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY: Take a digital photo of, (or scan) your targets, and email the picture, along with:

1. Your score.

2. The name you want used when we post the results.

3. Gun description - Brand, model, semi-auto, revolver, black powder, caliber, barrel length, and type of sights

4. Class: Class One, Two, Three, four, five, six, or seven.

5. Anything interesting or unique about your entry that other shooters might enjoy hearing about.

Email it all to b l o g (at) w h i d b e y (dot) c o m

If you can't scan or send target pictures, send everything else to me in an email, and we'll arrange for either fax or snail mail for the targets.

Sorted it out thanks to Mike. I had 2 slightly different addresses, one of which would do everything but actually connect.

Getting a new gun this week so maybe 2 more targets this coming weekend.
