With the Coronavirus crisis there’s a renewed interest in pistol postal matches and new forms of online competitions are coming up. I’ve collected a few links with the help of readers that I hope are helpful for you to participate and share with other shooters. A lot are for air pistol (AP) only, which is understandable if people can only shoot at home or have to use a tracing tool and dry fire.
If you know or organize other competitions, please share them in the comments so that I can include them in the list.
