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 – October 2019

A brisk breeze was blowing bullets around but otherwise it was a beautiful fall day in southern Maryland as a full battalion of ten shooters manned the benches with their classic military rifles in an epic battle for year-end supremacy at the October Woodstock Match at Sanners Lake!  In the combined score category it was a skirmish of Swiss as a pair of K31’s scuffled for the top spot...but in the end, Jesse W held off a late charge from Kurt F to take the win with an excellent 278-3X ahead of Kurt’s 275-6X.  In the individual category, the K-31’s were once again in the hunt for the top spot along with the ‘03A3 of veteran shooter (and Woodstock founder!) Chris Moe, but out of nowhere Mark S’s Trapdoor Springfield finally found the aiming black on the last relay and notched a strong 95-0X to take the individual win!  No doubt the big holes punched by those jumbo 45-70 Government rounds provided an advantage when it comes to nipping the edge of the higher scoring rings, but the resulting bursitis of the shoulder may or may not have been worth it.  See the match report for all the details.

Thanks to everybody for making it to the range and finishing up the year with an excellent match.  Give your rifles a spritz of lube and a smear of grease before putting them away for the winter and be sure to stay tuned to the Sanners website for more information on next year’s matches.  See you next spring!
