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 – April 2021

The day started off cloudy and cool but the sunlight eventually poked through the clouds and it turned out to be pretty pleasant overall, a perfectly fine day for the April Woodstock match at Sanners Lake.  Seven shooters stepped up to the plate to see if they could meet the challenge of keeping their bullets in the black on the SR-21 targets at 100 yards...but once again, when the smoke cleared, it was Jonathan Ramsey and his 03A3 Springfield taking wins in both the combined and individual score categories with a pair of 96’s and a 94 totaling up to an excellent 286-6X combined.  Farther down in the standings, the scores were super tight, with no less than two sets of tie scores being decided by a single X.  In particular, the battle of the Carbines was a real race, with Ed Thompson coming on strong on his last string with a 90-0X (a Woodstock M1 Carbine Single String Record Score!) but Asher Maroot held fast and took the combined win with a 246-1X total, his single bullseye snatching the victory from Ed!  I’m sure there will be a rematch at some point in the near future...should be interesting!

Thanks to everybody for keeping their vintage rifles dialed in and shooting straight.

Next match is on 22 May, see you then!
