SANNER'S LAKE SPORTSMEN'S CLUB



Rifle Range


The Rifle Range provides Three+ position (prone, bench, kneeling/sitting, and standing/off hand), 8-station, fully-baffled range with target-frames at 25-, 50-, 75-, and 100 yards for paper targets (110-yards for steel matches). Capable of centerfire cartridges up to but not including .50 BMG. Firing-line shed offers shelter to the shooters. An AED is available at this range.

The rifle range is open to prone shooting within the following parameters:

1.  All shooting from sitting and prone must be done utilizing the shooting platforms provided. There are currently  platforms available for each lane. Two will always remain in place unless there are not enough lanes for bench shooters. Please ensure that there are two in place when leaving the range so the next solitary prone shooter won't have to set them up alone.

2.  All shooting done from below 30" will use the platforms. All matches/supervised events will use them UNLESS that event requires a transition from standing to seated or prone as part of the event's course of fire.


The firing line is wheel-chair accessible.

    Note - Rimfire Sporter will only be using part of the rifle range. The rest of the range is available for open shooting.

    These are essentially scaled-down versions of the NRA High-Power 3-Position Rifle Matches. These are fired at 25 & 50 yards and can be shot with several classes of rifles — open sights, optics, or with AR-type tactical rifles.

    22LRs are the most common caliber used in this event. However, .17HMR and .22 Magnums are also welcome.

    This event is shot in six (6) discrete stages, with the complete CoF taking less than an hour to complete.

    Match is open to the public.

    Sign Up:

    • Please register so the match director will know you are planning on coming out.  Registration will open a few weeks prior to the event and be available through this event listing.

    Course of Fire:

    • 50 yards with a sighting or practice series

    • Fire ten shots for record slow-fire in the prone position, followed by two five-shot rapid-fire series.

    • Fire ten shots slow fire and two five-shot rapid-fire series in the sitting or kneeling position.

    • Targets are then placed at the 25-yard line where shooters conclude with ten shots slow fire and two five-shot rapid-fire series in the standing position.

    • At Sanners we are running our COFs at 50 yards due to time constraints in setting up the 25 yard line.
