    A question Postal match rules

    Just to make it clear to the first timers.
    I didn't see it anywhere, but I would imagine only 5 bullet holes are allowed on the target not a dozen or more and they count your 5 closest to the center bull. Just 5!

    I'll defer to Big Medicine and/or Sidespin but I would agree, it should only be 5 holes on each target unless you're like me and it may be one large ragged hole.

    We might want to add also. Having a good solid backer behind your target rather then a shot up gaping hole behind it will reduce tears and give good clean holes to measure. A raggedy beat up torn target will get a lousy measurement and probably score for the worse!

    1895Gunner from what ive seen if you dont pretty much have one big gaping hole you won't score well!

    I keep my targets in a 3 ring binder but all the holes are to the left of the printing for addresses. Please tell me this is not "altered". Fom

    Up to Big Medicine but as far as I'm concerned we could sure tell what those holes were for. Again, up to Big Medicine....

    It helps to have thicker stock paper stapled to a thin piece of ply wood or thick cardboard.

    Actually, in 2008 I submitted a target with six holes, got carried away. It was actually as good as any other but I belive it was kicked out.

    Re: A question Postal match rules

    I usually shoot 10, but I shoot the 2nd 5 through the holes of the 1st 5, so it doesn't matter!
