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 2019 

An enthusiastic turnout on a beautiful warm spring day meant the benches were nearly full at the April Woodstock match at Sanners Lake.  The line was populated with a fascinating variety of interesting historical guns including a classic British SMLE and even an original 140-year-old Trapdoor Springfield!  When the smoke cleared, however, it was the venerable ’03 Springfield of Barry N dominating the standings, taking first in both the combined (276-2X) and individual (95-1X) score categories.  The Garands were right on his heels, though, with Dick C nabbing second place in the combined category with a 272-1X while Ron F’s 93-2X was good enough for second place in the individual category.  Not to be outdone, the classics put up a strong showing with Paul S’s SMLE breathing down everybody’s neck, taking 4th place in both the combined and individual categories, while Jake S's Trapdoor from 1889 showed General Custer how it’s done as it shredded the scoring rings with .45 caliber daylight to notch a stellar 91-1X, good enough for 6th place in the individual category.  In the war of the M1 Carbines, Asher M watched his scores slide along with the rear sight on his Inland allowing the Saginaw of Mary P to squeak out a victory with a strong 243-1X combined.   See all the details in the match report.  

Thanks to everyone for making it out to the range and filling the benches in what might have been our highest turnout yet.  Keep those old guns warmed up and sighted in and we’ll see you at the next match on May 16th!
