Military Woodstock

Restricted to wood stocked military rifles in use by various nations prior to 1961.  Iron sights and/or peeps ok.  No scopes or optics of any kind.  Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Winchester ’94, Thompsons, Garands and the ever-popular matchlock are all good candidates.  As long as it was 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 Directors have final say, and will loan you a rifle if needed.

Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – September 2017


It was a mild and pleasant last day of summer at Sanners Lake as another full relay (and more) showed up to man the benches at the September Woodstock match.  The usual Gaggle of Garands was there along with an abundant assortment of attention-getting antiques and relics.  Well, they might have been relics in terms of age, but they were anything but on the bench, putting down stellar scores across the board.  Paul S and his vintage Krag tore up the center of the target, with Paul once again taking the top three slots in the individual score category as well as top combined, a superb performance with his nearly 115-year-old original rifle.  Jesse W with his right-out-of-the-shipping-container Argentine Mauser and Mark S with his trusty ’03 Mark I Springfield battled it out for second place in the combined score category, but Mark succumbed to the pressure and inadvertently cross-fired on Jesse’s target during the second string allowing Jesse to cruise into second place combined with ease.  The cross-fire (scored as a miss) didn’t hurt Mark too badly, though, as he still had enough points to take third place combined.   The rest of the pack did well too, including Raymond Z who kept the heat on the Garands and the rest of the big boys as he put down decent scores with his peashooter M1 Carbine.  See the September Match Report for all the scores. The last Woodstock match of the year will be on October 19th, so come on out and close out the year with a bang!
