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
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.
Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – August 2019
It was a classic late summer muggy day in southern Maryland but that didn’t stop several new shooters from showing up with old guns to join the old shooters with old guns at the August Woodstock match at Sanners! No new records were broken this time around since this match was more about getting untried/untested guns on paper, but when the smoke settled everybody was (mostly) in the black by the end of the day. Mark S's M1A once again came out on top in both the individual and combined score categories, but the real story was the battle for second place between the Garands of Pat F and David Z! In the combined score category David nabbed second with a strong 256-1X ahead of Pat’s 253-2X; however, the roles were reversed in the individual category with Pat taking the win with an 88-2X, just one bullseye over David and his 88-1X! Check out the match report for all the details.
Thanks to everybody for coming out and supporting the match, especially the new shooters showing patience and persistence getting dialed in and on target. The next Woodstock match is on September 19th...see you then!
The M14 still has what it takes...flyers caused by the shooter!
