SANNER'S LAKE SPORTSMEN'S CLUB

Military Woodstock

Open to wooden-stocked long guns used in military service by any nation prior to 1961.  Iron sights and/or peeps acceptable as long as representative of a standard service configuration.   No scopes or optics of any kind.  Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Winchester ’94, Thompsons, Garands, M1 Carbines, Trench Guns (slugs only) and the ever-popular Matchlock are all good candidates.  As long as it was standard 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 Director has final say!  Loaner rifles may be provided with advance notice.

Current Match Report

Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – September 2019

It was a gorgeous late summer day in southern Maryland as a nearly-full relay of seven shooters brought an array of classic military rifles to launch lead at the September Woodstock Match at Sanners Lake.  The usual collection of Garands and ’03 Springfields filled out the benches, along with an M1 Carbine and a classic British Lee Enfield rounding out the firing line.  Mark S pulled his son Jake’s Garand out of the back of the safe, blew the cobwebs off of it, and managed to come out on top, while Ron F and Jonathan R were right behind him in both the individual and combined score categories.  Detailed results are listed in the match report.  Note that the majority of the top ten scores were well into the 90’s, an excellent showing from the old warhorses!      

Thanks to everybody for making it to the range, helping with setup and teardown, and keeping the old guns dialed in and running well.  The last Woodstock match of 2019 is on October 17th...slather some lube on your vintage military rifle, get it dialed in, and join us at Sanners to finish the year with a bang!
