Competitive Shooting Sports - Postal Matches

A Postal Match is a match in which competitors fire on their home ranges using targets which have been marked for identification. The fired targets are then sent to NRA for scoring and ranking for awards. The NRA conducts various postal matches, many of which are in cooperation with national and fraternal organizations. Others fill the need for specialized matches among groups that are unable to support their own separate competition. Listed below are brief descriptions of the current NRA sponsored or sanctioned postal series. A complete program and entry information (PDF format) is available for most of these matches and may be printed and mailed to NRA. For further information on these programs you may write to:
