April 2018 results

Wind didn't turn out to be much of a problem today, six shooters showed up to brave the forecast and theme was Mauser.  Allen brought a neat VZ-24 export rifle for south america in 7mm mauser, Curtis and I both shot swede 96's and Eric brought a neat Norwegian capture K98K rifle that was rebarreled in 30-06 post war and called a K98KF1 I think.  Congrats to the top shooters, I tried my best to give them a chance:)  Pistol was a lot of fun, we really got drenched for about 15 minutes, then it got sunny, oh well, as Allen said it rained in Stalingrad.  Pistol scores were great today especially considering the rainy conditions.

March 2018 Results

It was nice to see everyone again, weather was very nice if a bit cold.  The new dividing wall I had worked for a few years to get installed was finally put in and it was great to not have to worry about the bench shooters and just do our match un hindered.  Theme this month was Mosin and was represented by two finn M-39's and a nice Finn M-28-30.   Congrats to Allen and Eric in Rifle, and congrats to Eric and Curtis in Pistol! All pistol scores were above 400 this month!   I had not shot anything since Ocboter and was feeling definitely rusty but the M-39 shot really well for me, and my Norwegian nagant also did quite well despite me doing my best to throw shots.  Next month will be 40 shots and the theme will be Mauser.   Hope to see a bit bigger turnout.   Targets are in ok shape for another match but probably need a build party before the May match.  See you then.

October 2017 Match results

We had a very nice turnout of 10 shooters for the final match of the year.  A deer kept crossing back and forth that delayed the first relay somewhat but it all worked out ok.  Eric brought a really neat Hotchkiss rifle to shoot.  This was a Navy contract rifle in 45/70 with a trapdoor barrel and sight, with a bolt action that feeds through a 6 shot tube in the buttstock!   Pistol scores were great again this month, people are really getting good.  See you next year!

September 2017 results

It was quite warm, but no wind and we had a pretty decent turnout considering the 3 day weekend and several shooters on trips.  Theme was Sniper, and we had an original 1903A4, a repro, and a PU sniper take part.  Was nice to see Ted and Jason again.  Allen Harper shot a great offhand score of 94 with his M1A while shooting to second place.  In pistol, Olivia shot a great score with her VZ-61 just beating her brothers best score by 2 x's.  Allan shot a nice score with his HiPower and Jim shot a nice score for his second ever pistol match. Fortunately I brought a spare pistol and ammo since I planned on shooting my swiss 1929 revolver but wound up bringing a box of primed brass, not loaded ammo, I guess I'm becoming one of "those guys"...jeez.  Last match of the year will be October, hope to see you there.

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.
