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!

September 2016 match results

We had a really nice day and a very nice turnout especially considering the holiday weekend.  Theme for this month was WW2 and before sniper rifles with scopes limited to 4x power.  We had an actual 1903A4, a replica from creedmore, a nice M1D with original mount and weaver alaskan scope, and a Yugo M-48 with a scout type scope setup.  We welcomed David Yarger who came to shoot his Finn match rifle for fun, I broke the group up into sniper, iron sight and "other" since we had two other AR shooters as well.  Ted shot a great score with his iron sight AR to just beat Tim shooting a scoped AR, and ahead of David who had a very nice score considering he had two "5" crossfires that didn't count. Bob just beat out Allen Harper in iron sight class.  In sniper my new creedmore 1903A4-gery did a very good job for me, even if I was struggling in offhand, Allen's M1D shot a very nice 100-11V prone, and Curtis' M48 did very well as well in prone.  Steve's original 1903A4 also had some very nice strings.  In pistol scores were very good, with me edging out Tim, followed by Allen F. and Curtis with his Sig 220 and Max shooting for the first time in a long time with the VZ-61 Skorpion.

Thanks to all who shot and we'll see you for the final match in October.

August 2016 Match Results

We had a beautiful warm day and a very nice turnout. Scores in both rifle and pistol were very close and very high!  I'm glad to see the pistol scores getting really good, competition is hot!  I had a good day with my 1903A1 but Tim was hot on my heels with his 1917, and Curtis shot one of his best scores with his swede.  Eric Johnson brought out a neat restored Norwegian Krag Carbine that was just beautiful that shot very well and also had danish krag long rifle for show.  Bob G rounded out the top 5 and his scores have been steadily improving.  In pistol again, Tim was hot on my heels, and Eric shot a great score with his 45 colt SAA.  Bob and Allen were right behind.

Next month will be a 60 shot match with the theme of ww2 or before sniper rifles.  We will do 5 shot rapid fire strings instead of 10 shot strings.  We will still have the pistol match afterward as usual.

July 2016 match results

What a great 4th of July weekend.  Warm, sunny just perfect.  We had a nice turnout of 11 shooters.  Theme was foreign bolt and it turned out we had three swedes, a swiss and a mosin.  Swedes took three of the top four spots.  Welcome to Mark who came and shot a carbine for the first time.  Welcome back to Ted who has been shooting serious matches for a while. Scores were good today, I was able to set a new record for rapid fire prone with bolt gun with a 100-9V upping the previous record by Alan Flanagan of 100-6V.  Pistol match had 9 shooters and Olivia came and shot her VZ-61 skorpion for the first time in a year.  Pistol scores were very close with only 7 points separating the top four shooters.  Curtis shot a great score with his Makarov.  Next month is a 40 shot match, no theme followed by the pistol match.
