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
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.

Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – October 2022
Another bright and crisp fall afternoon greeted the intrepid rifleman who made it out to the October Woodstock 2022 “finale” match at Sanner’s Lake, and the benches were once again filled from end to end with classic and interesting vintage military rifles. It was a good day for shooting, and Jonathan Ramsey and his Schmidt–Rubin came loaded for bear, setting a new Woodstock high score record with a near-perfect 100-7X individual string! And, as if that wasn’t enough, he bookended it with a pair of 99’s to break his own combined high score record (set just last month) with an outstanding 298-16X. Congratulations to Jonathan! The gauntlet has now been thrown down to the rest of us to see if we can match or beat those scores...it won’t be easy, that’s for sure. Further down the standings, Greg Banta and Ron Ferguson duked it out in a battle of Springfields (’03 and Garand), with Greg taking second place combined with an excellent 280-2X, and staying just ahead of Ron in the individual score category as well. See all the scores and pics below. Thanks to everybody who supported our matches this year and gave their vintage rifles an opportunity to do battle once again. We’ll pick it up again next year; keep an eye on the club calendar for dates and times. Also don’t forget the annual SLSC “Frozen Chosin” match in the January timeframe, will send out more details on that as a date and time become available.
