That's right. 2 contests at the same time! This one is a 2x4 cuttin' contest, better known as a "post shoot". A Postal Post Shoot! There were several requests for a re-do and it has been quite a while... The target is a regular old construction lumber "2x4" (which isn't really 2"x4"), 4 feet long. Use an aiming point if you like. Distance is 25 yards. Offhand. Your choice of traditional muzzleloading weapon except for cannons. You can use pistol, revolver, smoothbore, smooth rifle, or rifle. Or even any combination of those. Anchor your 2x4 to the ground in the upright position using your choice of method. Dig a hole, build a "foot", stick it in a cinder block, whatever works for you. Check the archives for the last 2x4 shoot for ideas. Keeping an accurate count of shots fired, shoot the 2x4 into 2 separate sections. Not split. Shooting a chunk off the side doesn't count. 2 ends! Please don't post your score on this thread! And DON'T mail me a 2x4. :haha: Send me a PT by May 31st and let me know how many shots it took you to cut your 2x4. I will post all of the results at once.
