The Vintage Military Rifle Match was held on Saturday afternoon, April 26, 2014. A few of those that signed up were no-shows and two were not able to attend because of damage sustained in the storm on Friday night. We went forward with the seven competitors who presented. A special “thank you” to Gary Whitcraft, who drove down from Maryland to compete. The assortment of rifles was limited by the number of competitors. The most unusual rifle was a reproduction of a German FG42 Battle Rifle that was shot by Bill Cogger, who won the competition. Roy Pastorek shot his M1 Garand to a very close second place, followed by Larry Belli and his M1 Garand. The rest of the field, who separated themselves from the top three, were Gary Whitcraft (M1903A3), Tom Beacham (24/30 Venezuelan Mauser), Rich Lewandowski (M1 Garand) and Kris Bush (Carl Gustov Swedish Mauser). The format used for this competition were 10 rounds slow fire at 50 yards from an offhand (standing) position and 10 rounds rapid fire from an unsupported bench position. We will hold this match again next year and hope for a much better turn out. This fall, we will conduct our Third Annual Team Vintage Rifle Match. The format will be the same as used in previous years. Look for more information later in the summer.
