SUBJECT: THE SHOOTING OF POSTAL MATCHES

Jon make the next Frontier Muzzleloading SECOND Shoot an off hand shooting event, 25 yards standing 5 shot group (No rests, or supports of any kind). Have the shooter send in a picture of shooting his target. May consider a $5 entry used to cover prizes.


Don't try doing this like Heston tried at the making of "The Mountain Men". 
He was told "To stand up and shoot like a man."

His reward for trying to cheat and missing a hanging egg was he had to eat his target. This was a Special Shoot held by American Sportsmen "John Wayne Honor Shoot" after his passing.

A year later at LaVeta CO "Western National Rendezvous" he had remembered the instructions and the butt chewing from the movie. He stood up and "shot like a man" this time, he was a fast learner.

What target is to be used?

Also, how do you take your own verification picture if you're the only one present?

He stood up after being told "to shoot like a man", the crowd stood back waiting for him to go off on me. After playing the pissed roll we had a good laugh over it and the guys from American Sportsmen Show loved it, first time they had seen someone give Heston orders.......  affraid 

Later that year I took Heston's son and an assn. director for that movie on their first buffalo hunt.  :rtup

All of us kept in contact with Christmas cards for several years. Those guys really have busy schedules all the time - 7 X 24.

We needed to break several of the subjects up under the "header" up to make it easier to find each subject theme.
