The following results from the 2011 Armistice Day Shoot follow:


Special thanks once again to the Shongum Sportsmen's Association who made this shoot posssibe.

This shoot was sponsored by Shongum (and NJACC Member) Stan Gurski.

The great lunch of Hot Dogs & Kielbasa, Kraut, Chili, and drinks, prepared by our Chef Joe Lutz worked out perfectly for the shoot. We had under a dozen shooters, so we have some food for the freezer for the winter shoot. Stan ran the line, and Tom Plante the scoring.

The weather was better than expected, but we had a small turnout. The day was crisp and clear, and the shooting conditions were excellent. Tom Plante arrived about 9:15 with the target frames that were stored at Bob Weis' home in Long Valley. Since a few of our members are Shongum members, they alread had some frames out, and we only needed a few of ours.

Site-in went well. We only had ten shooters, but we still had entries in almost all our matches. The rifle matches were completed by 12:30 when we broke for lunch. After lunch, we completed our pistol matches.

This rifle matches were shot at 100 yards. As a result, we had no one shoot a perfect 10-Round score, but we did have a one or two very good scores.

As usual, we all managed to eat very well and have a great time. Steve S cleaned up on the handgun range, while Paul M cleaned up on the Rifle Range. Steve won Allied Pistol (1911 Colt), Small Pistol (1903 Colt), and Stocked Pistol (Artilery Luger). Paul M won Allied Rifle (Mosin Nagant 91/30), Central Powers Rifle (GEW '98) and Rifle with Bayonet (GEW '98)

The remaining matches were won by Russ P (Doughboy US M1917), Andy G (Belleau Wood- '03 Sprinfield), and Rich G, Central Powers Pistol- Luger and Allied Revolver-Webley .45)
