Military Woodstock

Open to wooden-stocked long guns used in military service by any nation prior to 1961.  Iron sights and/or peeps acceptable as long as representative of a standard service configuration.   No scopes or optics of any kind.  Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Winchester ’94, Thompsons, Garands, M1 Carbines, Trench Guns (slugs only) and the ever-popular Matchlock are all good candidates.  As long as it was standard military issue.  You wanna shoot your civil war musket and try to obscure the targets for the rest of us?  Fine, as long as you can load and shoot 10 times in 10 minutes!
And no, a 1996 Winchester model 70 is NOT allowed even though it has military roots with the Mauser.  Match Director has final say!  Loaner rifles may be provided with advance notice.

Current Match Report

Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – August 2018 

A swarm of shooters brought the heat and a sultry summer brought the humidity, but the sweltering surroundings didn’t stifle the scores or the stamina at the August Woodstock Match at Sanner’s Lake!  Once again the totals were tight, especially in the individual category where the top five scores were all 95’s with only X-count (and sometimes not even that!) separating the shooters.  Mark S and the Garand he built at the CMP’s Advanced Maintenance Class took the individual win with a 95-3X, while in second place once again the tie-breaking rules were insufficient to decide who won making for a three-way tie between Ray Z, Dick Ch, and Mark S all with 95-1X.  For third place Ron F was right there, hot on their heels with a 95-0X...that’s some truly tight competition!  In the combined score category the race was close as well, with Mark S taking the win with a 283-5X followed by Dick C squeaking out second place with a 276-4X and Ron F right behind him with a 274-1X .  Note that top nine scores in the individual category were all above 90 while the top five scores in the combined category were all above 270, adding to the pressure to hold fast in the heat and keep those groups consistently tight through all three strings! All the details can be found in the August Match Report

Thanks to everyone for making it out to the range in spite of the high misery index and letting the rifles show what they can do!  The next match will be on September 20th; hopefully it will cool off a bit by then...
