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 – April 2022

Once again a crowded contingent of vintage military rifle buffs filled the firing lines at the April Woodstock match at Sanner’s Lake making for two nearly-full relays of classic battle rifles ...an excellent way to kick off the 2022 shooting season! The scores were super-tight up and down the board, with lots of tie breakers needed to sort out the final results.  We even had dedicated benchrest shooter Steve Reimers show up with his bedded/accurized ’03 Springfield and lay down some record-breaking scores...but of course his modified rifle was ineligible for the match (though I did list his scores at the bottom of the tables below so we have something to shoot for!).  At the end of the day when the smoke cleared it was James Black and his Garand taking the top spot in the combined category with an excellent 280-4X, while new Woodstock shooter Cody Moore took the high individual score with a superb 95-2X.  See all the scores and details below.  

Thanks for coming out to the range and kicking off 2022 with a bang!  The next match will be on May 19th, same time, same place.  See you there!
