Forum War! U.S. vs. The World


The U.S. Members of the Muzzleloadingforum hereby declare War on the Muzzleloadingforum members of the rest of the Entire Free World!

Since we U.S. members really sorta like you non-U.S. members, and we hope you sorta like us too, we don't really want to shoot at one-another. However, a War must be settled with bullets, therefore we will settle this one with a shooting contest. After all, it's nothing personal, just a war...

There will be two teams (armies).

The General of the U.S. Muzzleloading Forum Army will be me, jethro224.

The General of the World Muzzleloading Forum Army will be Soggy.



Participation is voluntary, but every shot counts. Every Muzzleloading Forum member is invited to join in on the fun, even the moderators.

Only traditional, open sighted muzzleloading firearms (Rifled or Smoothbore) are allowed. (no cannons or handguns)

Single patched round ball only. (no restriction on caliber)

Shots will be taken off-hand at 50 yards. (45.72 meters)

One shot per member.

Mutilated targets and targets with more than one hole will be disqualified.

If you miss the target completely, don't send in a blank sheet of paper. You are allowed to shoot until you hit the paper once.

The target is a standard sheet of printer paper with an X drawn thru the center corner-to-corner.

Shots will be measured from the center of the hole to the center of the paper.

Shots that measure 75mm or less (roughly 3 inches) from the center will score a "kill" for that members army.

Shots that measure 75.01mm or more from the center, but are on the paper, will score a "wound" for that members army.

Every three wounds will count as one kill.

The army with the most kills wins.

War is Hell! There's no way to know how many members will join each army. It's up to you! Please, take a shot to help your army win this war!

We will need time to raise the alarm, muster the troops, and form our battle plans so the War Starts Now!

Take your best shot.

Write "War", your screen name, and your Country on your target. Only registered forum members are allowed to participate in the battle.

Do not name your targets. (Example: Soggy shoots a target named Musketman)

If shooting in a group with another forum member(s), multiple targets may be sent in the same envelope to reduce the high cost of mail.

No targets may be faxed or scanned and sent by private topic to their corresponding generals, only original targets count.

Mail your target to your respective General postmarked by May 31, 2009.

General of the U.S.

General of The World

Canada B0W 3B0


Each General will tally the scores for his army and forward them to Musketman who will then post the final results of the War.

Targets will not be returned unless an S.A.S.E. is included.

Ok Jethro,

Sounds like another fun competition. Have to get out the old "Ugly Rifle" and see what I can do.
Say, what's with the measurement rule? :confused: We are U.S. measurements. How long is 75 mm ? I only know inches, feet, yards. If we are a U.S. team, need to measure in real U.S. measurements. At least I know where the center of a piece of paper is, so that is all needed I guess. :v Cold this weekend, will wait till next week to shoot.

Thanks, see ya, Jim/OH :hatsoff:

75 mm is roughly 3 inches (2.9549999999999996 to be exact), I will edit the rules to include it.

The metric system is only one of the reasons we're having this war! There's also driving on the wrong side of the road, callin' soccer "football", and keepin' all the best cookies for theirself... :cursing:

I tried to make it 3" but was out-voted. Figgered it won't matter anyway... since all us U.S. riflemen are gonna put 'em right in the center!
:blah: :blah: :blah: (and lots of us are gonna use Italian and Spanish guns to do it :haha: )

Looks like I got a couple real good recruits already! :hatsoff: (where's the salute smilie?)

Hey Romeoh!............Can I count on you shootin' for us?
Hopefully we can muster up a bunch of sharp shooters. There's no telling what they will do to us if THEY win :( ........Rumor has it they may install Dick Cheney as "Chief Firearm inspector " :nono: :nono:

Buripity, sir! Reporting for duty, General Jethro! :thumbsup: Shall I use my .54 GPR even though it has an Italian made barrel or my less accurate .32 100+ year old piece of good ol' American history? Also, can I be given a higher rank over Grey Whiskers, just so I can finally boss him around? :rotf:

General Soggy, since we are at war, I feel it is in our (Team USA) best efforts to impose an embargo on all foreign sales from American muzzleloading builders and suppliers.

What does that mean for you and the World team? No more orders from Track of the Wolf, Dixie Gun Works, Log Cabin Shop, etc.

Let me sum it up for you with this iconic Americanian jester:
:blah: :rotf:
