SANNER'S LAKE SPORTSMEN'S CLUB



Military Woodstock

Restricted to wood stocked military rifles in use by various nations prior to 1961.  Iron sights and/or peeps ok.  No scopes or optics of any kind.  Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Winchester ’94, Thompsons, Garands and the ever-popular matchlock are all good candidates.  As long as it was 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 Directors have final say, and will loan you a rifle if needed.

Current Match Report

Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – August 2017 

Another large crowd of vintage military rifle buffs made it out to Sanners Lake for the August Woodstock match on Thursday afternoon, suffering through some seriously sweltering heat to launch lead at SR-21 targets at 100 yards.  The benches were filled to capacity with an assortment of antique iron including Swiss, German and Finnish long guns as well as a mass of Mosins and the usual surplus of ’03 Springfields and Garands.  Paul S and his micrometer sight-equipped Springfield dominated the standings this time around, taking the top three slots in the individual score category as well as top combined.  Mark S and junior shooter Trevor G kept the pressure on, though, taking the next two spots in the rankings.  And while the Mosins didn’t place high in the standings, they outdid themselves in the entertainment factor with big flashes, loud booms, and sporadic curse words as balky bolts and finicky actions were subjected to generous sprays of lube and occasional “percussive maintenance”.  See the August Match Report for all the scores. Next match is on 14 September, come on out and join the fun!
