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 – July 2021

We achieved classic Southern Maryland sticky summer weather as the July Woodstock match kicked off on a steamy weekday afternoon at Sanner’s Lake.  Four faithful competitors shook off the sweat and hunkered down with their vintage iron and launched lead downrange to see if their old rifles (and corresponding trigger activators) still had what it takes.  Jonathan Ramsey decided to bring a different rifle this time, a vintage Schmidt-Rubin shooting classic Swiss GP11 ammo, but the change didn’t seem to matter as he once again grabbed first place in both the combined and individual categories, edging closer once again that that elusive perfect 100!  Right behind him were both Ron Ferguson and Asher Maroot shooting iconic M1 Garands, with Ron taking second place combined and Asher right behind Jonathan in the individual score category.  Meanwhile new shooter Jim Kay saw his best score on his first string when he fired all of his shots in less than two minutes...sometimes shooting quickly and getting it over with can be the best approach!  Still great scores with his untested SKS at 100 yards; hopefully Jim will be back for more.  See all the scores and details below.   

Thanks as always to the stalwarts who shrugged off the sweltering weather and put their rifles to the test.  Our next match is on 19 August...perhaps it won’t be quite so hot by then (ha!).  See you there!
