Military Woodstock

This match is for those nearly-forgotten (but not by us!) classic wooden-stocked long guns used in any aspect of military service prior to 1961.  Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Thompsons, Garands, M1 Carbines, Trench Guns (slugs only), BARs, caplocks, flintlocks, wheel locks, and even matchlocks are all good candidates as long as some military in some country used it in some capacity.  You wanna blast away with 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!  No gun-mounted scopes or optics...iron sights only.  Peep or aperture sights acceptable.  No sporterized or "bubba" guns.  No composite stocks or bedded actions.  Reproductions are acceptable as long as they are reasonably representative of service issue.  All SLSC restrictions apply (e.g. no 50BMG, full auto, etc).  Check with the match director if you have any questions.

Current Match Report

Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – June 2024

Five shooters shrugged off the recent heat wave and brought a variety of classic old warhorses to test their mettle in the heat of modern competition at the June Woodstock match at Sanner’s Lake.  The most “modern” of these old warhorses, the Polytech M14 of Ron Ferguson, though, didn’t quite make it out of the starting gate as it spit out its extractor and launched it into the ether, never to be seen again.  Some would say that that’s the challenge (and fun?) of shooting these old guns...seeing what happens, either on one end of the range or the other.  And then there were four...three of which were M1 carbines...and when the battle was over it was Dick Chadwick’s Fulton Carbine taking the top spot in both the individual and combined score categories.  Congratulations to Dick!  See all the scores and details below.       


The next Woodstock match will be on July 18th when the heat of summer will likely be matched (or exceeded!) by the heat of battle.  See you there!
