To bad they didn't get a hold of me ahead of time I would have sent them medals to hold there shoot as Provincial Match.

Actually the could still hold a provincial. They haven't established a course of fire yet. I would just have send the medals after the fact.

The Victorian Rifleman Medal goes to anyone who shoots a Provisional match with a Victorian era rifle in 2007. Final score is not relevant, only that the match is shoot with a type of rifle used by Queen Victoria's Troops.

If 10 people shoot Martini's in the provisional I will send ten medals. You folks will have to find the appropiate ribbon in your country colors to attach.



Click here on this link for full details: The Provincial.

This is the match.

THE BASIC PROVINCIAL MATCH

13 rounds at 100 yards fired on the 50 meter UIT Slow fire Pistol Target B-17. Best ten hits count. Any position, sling may be used. No rests. Use any rifle of a type as originally used by Queen Victoria’s Armies during her reign using black powder. .303 only may be shot with Smokeless powder.


I do ask that the score of each shooter be posted here. We don't necessarily need the shoters name, but would like to have the rifle type and score.

The purpose is to encourage shooters around the world to get together and shoot their rifles. By recording the scores and entering them into the data base I have started we are able to get some standard of expection. We can see what these rifles actually capable of doing.

Are you in Sth africa ,my fathers family came from there before WW 1.
I am working on a 2 year contract here in SA and will return home to the U.S. in 4 months.

I must also add that so far there have been provincial matches fired in South Africa, Canada, Falkland Islands and the US.

I sure would like to see the UK and NZ folks shoot one also.

Barry,

The Provisional is not intended to be competitive match. The Provisional is intended to be a measure of the rifle.

The Medal I have goes to every person who shoots, not the best score. Everyone who shoots a Provisional gets a medal. You are only required to shoot the format as described, on the target described and post the scores. When you post the score, we don't care who shot the score, we want to know what rifle shot the score. That's all. The purpose is to establish a mean score demonstrating what the various rifles are is capable of.

If your club wishes to shoot it as a competition that's up to you. But it is not a condition of the Victorian Rifleman Provisional Medal.
