SANNER'S LAKE SPORTSMEN'S CLUB



Military Woodstock

Restricted to wood stocked military rifles in use by various nations prior to 1961.  Iron sights and/or peeps ok.  No scopes or optics of any kind.  Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Winchester ’94, Thompsons, Garands and the ever-popular matchlock are all good candidates.  As long as it was military issue.  You wanna shoot your civil war musket and try to obscure the targets for the rest of us?  Fine, as long as you can load and shoot 10 times in 10 minutes!

And no, a 1996 Winchester model 70 is NOT allowed even though it has military roots with the Mauser….Match Directors have final say, and will loan you a rifle if needed.

Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – October 2017 

A crisp and beautiful fall day at Sanner’s Lake welcomed another full relay of enthusiastic shooters manning the benches at the October Woodstock match.  The low sun and long shadows lit up the targets nicely but caused a bit of havoc on the firing line, with shooters taking extraordinary steps including repurposing rifle bags and repositioning spouses (see last picture below) to block the light and maintain a decent sight picture against the backlit glare of the sun!  It was a tight race down to the finish with just a few points separating the winners in both the combined and individual score categories.  Barry N put it all together on one string to take the top individual score of the day, a super 94-1X, with Jonathan R and Paul St following closely with twin 93’s, Jonathan taking second place with his higher X-count.  A high single score isn’t enough to earn the top combined category, though, as Jesse W and his Argentine Mauser put rounds consistently down the middle to take first place with a solid 272-7X combined.  Verifying that consistency is king, Ron F and Paul S were hot on Jesse’s heels posting twin 271’s, with Ron taking second place with his 5 X’s.  This was the last Woodstock match of the year so thanks to everyone for coming out and providing an outstanding display of shooting and, more importantly, giving the old warhorses a chance to shine once again! For all the details see the October Match report.
