August 2017 results

We had beautiful weather, and a decent turnout, a bit light, but did have one new shooter, welcome to Jim!  Allen shot a great score with this M1 to win the rifle match, I was just behind with Allen and Bob rounding out the top 50%.   Pistol had really good scores with Bob right on my tail with his M&P and Olivia and Eric neck and neck, and Allen F just out x-ing Allen Harper with his Nagant pistol.  John Benjamin joined us with his scoped match rifle to test some loads and then drug out his browning hipower he bought in germany in 1972 to shoot the pistol match with us.  Next month is the 60 shot sniper match, but you are welcome to bring any vintage military rifle as usual.  See you then.

May 2017 Match Results

We had a very nice turnout today and scores in both rifle and pistol were very good.  Rifle of the month was springfield rifle, and was well represented. Bob G had a great score with his 1917 and may switch to that from his M1 from now on.  Tim and I were neck and neck today shooting very well with our 1903A3's with Tim just beating me by one V.  Curtis, Bob and Ted were also just a few points apart.  Allen would have been in the hunt but his 1903 sight windage got bumped and he had a very tiny rapid fire group but all in the 3 ring.  In pistol, we had 9 shooters and everyone had a score above 400!  Again, Tim and I were neck and neck this time with me beating him by a point to even things out for the day.  To be fair, Tim was not feeling well today.  Bob E, Bob G and Allen were also neck and neck. Thanks to everyone for having a fun safe match!  See you next month for the 40 shot rifle and 48 shot pistol.

April 2017 Results

We had a very nice turnout for the match today, weather was mild with a very mild misting from time to time.  Robert George brought out his 5.7 Johnson barreled carbine as well as his 800 horsepower Corvette, it was funny, as he started up the corvette folks actually put on their ear muffs:)  Scores were very good today with Steve turning in one of his best in a while, even though he forgot his shooting coat.  Eric brought out a neat Danish Krag rifle, and I had my trusty commission rifle made in 1890.     In pistol,  scores were very good with Max shooting his best score by 30 or 40 points and only dropping 10 points!  He's only the fourth person to break 470 since we started these matches, the other being Tim Roark and Eric Johnson.  Bob shot a great score with his new Model 10, and I had the honor of shooting a new pistol record with my cimmaron SAA with a 479-38X.  Congrats to all who placed today.

March 2017 Match Results

For the first match of the 2017 season, we had 10 shooters and a bit of sunshine and also cold weather and rain.  Nice to see some new and old faces.  Welcome to Ed Kawasaki and welcome back to Tom.  Theme for this match was Mosin Nagant, and it was well represented.  I had an untested Finn straight stock 1941 M-39 rifle that was consistently throwing the first shot in every rapid fire string into the number board, yeah like 2.5' high.  Tim had a first round squib that left so much gunk in his 91/30 chamber he wasn't able to continue, but a big thanks to him for staying and pulling for the second relay.  Congrats to Allen Harper for having the high score with his M1A!   In Pistol we had 5 shooters who stayed and were rewarded by pretty nice weather.  Steve and Ed were neck and neck as were Allen and Curtis. My Austrian Rast and Gasser 1898 revolver shot really well.

Hope to see you next month for the 40 shot rifle and pistol match.
