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.

A great site for history/function of early C&R firearms

This is a great channel, they do really in depth history of the development for things that I have not seen, I actually learned quite a lot on the history aspect, check it out, he has a string of videos on ww1 weapons....

This site is not so much on the detailed history but covers disassembly/assembly and function/test firing of a lot of really neat and obscure weapons.

Video showing disassembly/assembly and loading of the French 1873 ordnance revolver

I talk about this interesting revolver, loading, and assembly/disassembly of the revolver. You can watch the video here:=>  Video Link

October 2016 match results

We had a great turnout today for the last match of the season.  It was great to see everyone and thanks for attending this year.  Eric brought a very nice CG-63 match rifle and duked it out with Tim who had an AR in 7.62x39.  In vintage Curtis shot a great score with his M-39 just one point from beating me!  Bob and Allen just behind with their M1/M14.  In pistol Bob and Tim brought some red dot sighted pistols for fun and shot great scores.  Eric shot a nice solid score with this P-64 compact pistol.

Hope to see you next March for our first match of 2017!
