The Sanner’s Carbine Classic is similar to an IDPA match but the firearm used is a carbine of intermediate caliber (muzzle energy ≤1875 ft·lbs). Competitors will be shooting primarily at paper targets interspersed with the occasional clay pigeon or other similar targets. At least one stage may be a blind stage where the brief is limited to the locations of the walls and shooting boundaries but not the type or number of targets. Round count per stage will vary depending on the stage and the amount of targets but will not exceed more than thirty shots required. Any carbine or rifle that complies with the muzzle energy limit is welcome but the emphasis will be on home defense and duty rifles. See below for additional match information.
Note - the August 31st match is for RSO's only, as a proof-of-concept match.
The November 30th match will be open to the public.

Sanner’s Carbine Classic Expeditionary Match Report
The return of the carbine matches to Sanner’s Lake Sportsman’s Club was a resounding success! The weather certainly was hot but the shooting was hotter for many.
This match tried to bring two factions together to compete: the USPSA side and the IDPA side, and in the end the victor was certainly the competitors. Combining some of the best elements of both types of matches meant every competitor was challenged and most seemed to be satisfied with the overall match when the rifles cooled and the dust finally settled.
Being the expeditionary match for this series meant that the most important thing (besides having a good match and being safe) was receiving suggestions on how to make this match better, and good advice was received in spades. Suggestions for the next match were heard loud and clear which should help make this series better and better...although the cries to make it an easier match with less kneeling will fall on deaf ears!
Special recognition must be given to Jordan B for not only being the High Lady but also High Junior and youngest competitor to shoot!
High Senior goes to Mike D!

The next match will not be until December 21st, so get plenty of practice in! See you then.
