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 – September 2018 

The somewhat less-sweltering September weather was a nice respite from this year’s simmering summer, but a veritable variety of vintage rifle shooters still managed to bring the heat for yesterday’s Woodstock match at Sanners Lake!  It was a marathon battle for top spot in the individual category with several stratospheric scores above 95, but when the dust settled it was Mark S and his AMC-class-built Garand taking the top spot with a healthy 98-3X.  Not to be outdone, Paul S and his classic British Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk 2 were within a whisker of first place and used the tie-breaker rules to nab second place with a strong 97-4X.  And speaking of tie-breakers, in the combined score category the X-count made the difference allowing Mark to nab first place with a 288-8X while Paul was once again just a whisker behind him with a stout 288-5X.  The now-standard surplus of strong scores across the target stands made for a solid struggle down to the wire!  See the September match report for all the details.

Thanks to everyone for taking time out of their day to grab their classic rifle, make it out to the range and keep the level of competition high and the fun quotient higher!  The next match will be on October 18th and it will be the last match of the year so let’s make it a good one!
