A 20 shot rifle string.

Recommended Posts

 

Probably best for a side match.

 

Stage is pretty typical, except for you use 20 rifle shots, reloading as necessary.

 

Your initial loading can be as many as your guns magazine will hold.

 

This would give me an excuse to purchase the 30" 73 I saw today...

Depending on where you live in New England that rifle would be illegal.:(

There's a match in southern Oregon where every stage has 20 pistol, 20 rifle and 10+ shotgun.  It's called True Grit.  You should plan to join us next year (Memorial Day weekend).,..

We have a non-sass match out here every other month where it's pretty typical to have 15-20 rifle targets per stage. Sometimes 20 pistol as well. Some folks bring out those 30" barrel rifles, others bring two loaded rifles to the stage. Other differences are misses are 10 second penalties, shotguns are stoked, rifle calibers on two stages, and targets are way out there. It's a lot of fun.

A 30" 73 won't quite get you 20 shots (in 45 Long Colt).  Mine holds 17 I think and my 1866 Musket holds 15. 

 

I would love to see something like this.  More shooting = More Fun!

We have from time to time what is called a 'Beg-Barrow or Steal' stage.

You may need a 3rd handgun or a second rifle because of rnd count.

The Roseburg, Oregon "Umpqua Regulators" "True Grit" match mentioned above is GREAT fun and has been going on for a long time!

 

The match was originally organized using just the standard (4)-CAS guns, with different reload combinations on each stage.  A lot of reloads!  It just took too long to complete the days shooting with very many competitors.

 

The format was changed many, many years ago to just double the number of pistols and rifles used, greatly speeding up the match.

 

(10)-stages over two days, 50+rounds per stage:  (6)-stages Sat. (4)-stages Sun. 

For a grand total of 500+rounds in two day of competition.

 

Stages are typically laid out in with the steel and shooting patterns in a mirror configuration:

ie. 1st set of revolvers or rifle is shot starting one direction, second set is started the other direction.

 

It also has some old school features having stages requiring pushing an ore cart, spinning targets, lots of movement/shooting positions, blasting potatoes off a metal "tree" with a shotgun, red "no-shoot" steer targets, etc. 

 

Average fastest stage times are in the high 40's to mid 50 seconds!

 

It's a true "shooters" match!

One of these years I'll actually finish the potato stage without running out of shotgun shells...

That sounds like a LOT of fun.

Well, it's for sale in a shop in Massachusetts, so it much be okay.   Maybe the fact that it's an antique, made in 1883, is significant.  

 

It's a .32-20, which is making me really interested in it.   I already have a 24" 73, a 20" 92 and a Colt Lightning in that caliber.

We used to do a 24 shot string out at Pala on occasion. It took quite awhile to reset all of the targets as they were all knockdowns
