The Sanner’s Carbine Classic is a practical carbine match 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 reactive target. While infrequent, there may be any number of "blind stages" during a match where the brief is limited and the competitor will not get the chance to see the stage before shooting. Round count per stage will vary depending on the stage and the amount of targets but will not exceed more than sixty 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. Nominal round count is 100-150, sign-ups will be on Practiscore.
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 Christmas Match Report
The first of the new series of carbine matches at Sanner’s Lake Sportsman’s Club kicked off with a bang! The weather might have been a bit chilly at first but the shooting was hot all day long.
This match tried to combine the best elements of both IDPA and USPSA style competition; challenging stages that allowed competitors to attack them as they saw fit with occasional mandated shooting positions to really up the difficulty. Every competitor was pushed, but accommodations were made for those who did not necessarily want to roll around in the dirt. Some stages had many targets and were a real mental game, others had fewer twists but pushed the competitors more physically, all with a high enough round count to blow the rust out of any safe queens!
Being the first official match for this series meant that the most important thing (besides having a good match and being safe) was making sure every competitor challenged themselves and their equipment. Whether you learned something about your rifle, your belt, or your mag pouches, or perhaps you found out that you need new accessories such as knee pads; if you had some kind of a learning experience I think we succeeded.
Included below is the link to the scores posted on Practiscore as well as a couple photos snagged during the match.
Special recognition must be given to Patrick B as the top Active Duty competitor, Glenn K as the high senior, and Andrea S as the high lady!
The next match will be December 28th. This will be a more traditional IDPA style match with smaller stages and a reasonable 80-100 round count for a regular match. Sign up information will be provided separately.
See you then!
