    Bill Buck

    I am sorry to report, but Bill has past away. He suffered a heart attack on Dec 29.

    He was not only a great shooter and proponent of Benchrest Sports, but a good friend and great person

    I am sorry for your loss. I only knew Bill via email for the matches but he seemed to be a fine person and I am sure he will be missed.

    North American Rimfire Postal Matches - Bill Buck

    NARPM has been the sole creation of Bill who managed it without help. Sadly, I fear the matches are over unless restarted by someone else. I do not know of anyone who has access to membership contact information as it was really a one man operation. (I speak as a close friend of Bill's for a number of years. We essentially relocated together from NC to FL this spring and our families remain close.) His passing is a loss to many. May he rest in peace.

    To those who have expressed their ability and willingness to continue the NARPM, my sincere thanks. Bill would be very gratified.
    Please keep me posted as I hope to become an active participant as my personal circumstances permit. Thank you.

    NARPM Update - Please Read

    All, with Bills's passing, Norm and I are carrying on with his legacy. Please see below for information on how to participate, and the January match that just got underway.

    Please see the three attached PDF’s for the January 2019 William Buck Memorial Postal Match. These files include an Invitation, Rules/Regulations and the Target.

    We hope that you will participate in this months match but recognize that weather and a short month may require that you pass.

    We’ve made a few changes, especially with the rifle classifications, that you will find in the rules and regulations. The target has also been modified to reflect the classification changes. Please remember to enter details of your rifle/scope/ammo and mark your classification.

    If you haven’t responded with a statement of your interest in participating please respond so we can maintain a viable mailing list.

    Question about Unlimited Class in the Postal Match

    Folks, I have a question, I need your thoughts on. In a Rimfire match, Unlimited class, are those rifles mostly shot from a one-piece stand, very heavy and sometimes not even having a stock?

    Are there any other traditional rifles that you've seen in an unlimited class for matches?

    Appreciate any wisdom you may have on describing what an unlimited class rifle is.

    Thanks very much!

    Unlimited

    Some venues a rifle over 13.5 # would be in unlimited.

    This would be considered an unlimited class rifle and one piece rest. The rifle weighs a little over 18 lbs and the rest is 30 lbs. If I shot the matches this is what I would use. Wayne
