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.

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.
