Air Rifle Postal Matches

As a result of canceling our in-person events this year due to the current social distancing guidelines we have made the decision to expand the air rifle program through using a Postal Match format.  This was proven to be effective during the recent NVWGs at Home this past summer, and will follow a similar format.  The inaugural PVA Postal Match season will run from November 2020 – May 2021.  Please contact your Chapter representative, or John Arbino, johnar@pva.org for the full Match Program.
