Latest Smack the Smiley Postal Match Underway

Our own 1000-yard Editor, Jason Baney, runs a popular “postal match” called “Smack the Smiley”. Four times a year (Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter) you can shoot an official target at your own range, and then submit it for judging. Over $2000.00 in prizes will be awarded for each 2008 seasonal match. You can compete with shooters from across the continent.

Jason started the Smiley matches in 2004. Since 2005, a share of monies collected from entry fees have been donated to American military marksmen via AmericanSnipers.org. These donations have totaled over $3000.00.

Entries are now open for the current Spring Match. Order your targets no later than May 5, 2008. Your finished Spring targets must be returned (postmarked) by May 27, 2008. Targets will be scored and ranked on shooting forums including SnipersHide.com, West Coast Tactical, SnipersParadise, and the main contest site, SmackTheSmiley.com

Prizes for Smack the Smiley Shooters
Prizes donated by manufacturers are raffled off, lottery-style, after each match. This means that every participant has a chance at wining. The prizelist totals over $2000.00 in value this year. You’re smart to shoot all four seasonal matches (Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter). A four-match Aggregate will be tallied this year with a possible prize for the Agg winner.
