Prize: TBD by the ZS board. (Soon enough there will be a concensus on a standard postal match prize, we promise)
The morning is dragging on, earlier in the day you were forced to put down two roamers that had encroached on your property. You fired six shots and they finally went down, but you knew that you would immediately attract others within a few miles, even with the trees breaking up the noise.
Once you'd finished repairing the fence, keeping a wary eye the whole time, you trotted back home. It's now around noon and you're not only exhausted, but ready for some real food. You check your pantry and note your steadily increasing level of supplies thanks to careful planning, a garden that is finally producing solid numbers, and careful management of your livestock. You prepare yourself a meal that would feed two and wonder why the wind is howling so hard outside.
As you step out you realize you weren't hearing the wind through the thick walls of your retreat but rather half a dozen roamers steadily encroaching on your home. Apparently they'd not only heard the gun shots, but also the hammer blows while you were repairing the fence, and though you didn't see them while heading home, they saw you. You have just enough time to pick a weapon you have stashed by the door and put these beasts down. While snatching your weapon you notice that three of them have peeled off and are heading toward your livestock shelter.
Your mind goes to what you will need to do in the very near future... after you've taken out the three still heading for you.
Please print three of the targets included in this post (you may also use the Alternative target if your range master does not allow silhouette targets) and use two rounds per target. There are no caliber restrictions, and you may choose a weapon you are comfortable with.
Targets (as well as expanded rules) are available on the Postal Match details page, or the links at the end of this post. Please send all targets to email@example.com. In the event of a tie, targets will be judged based on how close to the bullseye they were. Remember all targets should be printed on 8.5"x11" paper for scoring purposes. You have a total of two shots per target, three targets, use them wisely.
Remember targets are due no later than May 31st at 11:59pm (EST). Good luck!
