Good morning to all.  New to this forum and saw the Postal Match for 2022.  I will be trying my hand at putting some marks on the paper.  I do have one question.  In searching the results of previous years I saw some had scores for both the TMA face and the NRA targets.  I'm not sure I understand the two targets as I see that the one printed seems to be both.  Please explain to a thick headed old man.

Thanks

Never mind on the target question.  Now that I was finally able to get registered, I went back and saw last years images of the targets and I see it was two different targets.  Thanks.

Welcome to the TMA, Walt!

Yessir, there's only one main target for this year (the TMA), along with a special target (Mike Fink) that will get shot at during one month only, and that month will be named at a later date.

Good shootin'!  :wave   :*:

Anyone shoot their May targets yet?  I was going to go out this morning but had something else come up.  Have to take the dog to the vet tomorrow morning so that's a no-go.  Maybe Monday morning.

Mornings are pretty much the only time I have to play, and on the weekends there are too many other folks at the range....

Well my rear sight for the tc hawken is on its way so I can rebuild her. Then you're all in trouble.  :luff:
 In the mean time I shot my 62 smoothie and I couldn't hit the broadside ... Well you know.
 I'm still letting my right cheek heal but hopefully I'll hit some paper for score next week .

I've come to the strong and sad conclusion that if the gun doesn't have fore and aft peeps, I couldn't hit the broadside ... Well you know.  :Doh!  ;banghead;  :luff:

RAIN, AGAIN!  What a pain.  It's supposed to do so again tomorrow.  I'll see what Saturday brings.  I'm running out of time here, rapidly....

Rain here too. All month it seems.
 Looks like I won't get a chance to punch paper this month.
 Due to several factors, like always.

LAST DAY, sohHopefully I will be able to get out in the morning and shoot for May.  No promises as the wife thinks chores come first.  Can you imagine that?

Got the 25 yard target shot this morning; PITIFUL!  ;banghead; But it is what it is, as a friend often says.  Maybe better next month (tomorrow?).  :pray: I only had time to shoot that, plus three shot off the bench which confirmed that I can't blame the rifle.  I could probably have done better with my longbow, and I'm pretty bad with it also!  :scared:

Hang in there and roll with the punches. Sometimes it all clicks, and sometimes, no matter what you try, it all turns to -how shall I say it?- male equine excrement!   :Doh!

Got my 25 YD in today.  I forgot about the 50 and didn't really have time to set up for it anyway.  All in fun

Looking at the targets for May, there was some mighty fine shooting done last month! :yessir: Congratulations, and I'll see if I can't give you folks a run for your money this month. :laffing
