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 2021

The afternoon started with sporadic raindrops but they quickly dissipated and the overcast conditions made for halfway decent shooting conditions at the September Woodstock match at Sanner’s Lake.  The threat of rain certainly didn’t hamper attendance as seven shooters showed up to test their vintage battle rifles against SR-21 targets at 100 yards.   Jonathan Ramsey returned with his Schmidt-Rubin and kept his string of nearly-perfect 98’s alive with two more in a row before tallying a 96 on his final string, which was still good enough to take the top combined score with an excellent 292-10X!  Right behind him, Mike DiZebba and Asher Maroot did battle with their Garands, with Mike’s superb 96-5X good enough for third place individual while his 273-6X took second place combined.  Meanwhile, Asher clawed his way into third place combined with a strong 261-2X.  See all the scores and details below.  

Our last Woodstock match of the year is on 21 October, so if you haven’t been to a match this year, get your vintage military rifle oiled up and dialed in and join us at the range!
