Steel Challenge Match

Sunday, August 25th at 1PM, we will hold a Steel Challenge Match. For those of you who have not heard or shot the Steel Challenge, it is a fast and fun match.  As the name implies, the targets are all steel, 10″round, 12″ round and 18″X24″ rectangle plates hung off of 5′ high posts in different patterns.  Each stage consist of 5 targets with one of them designated as the “stop plate”.  The stop plate must be the last plate hit. Targets may be reengaged if you miss. But, anything shot after the stop plate is hit will not count, and any misses will be a 3 second penalty per miss.  You will shoot five strings per stage, and your lowest score will be dropped. There are several different divisions. Centerfire pistol (open optics allowed) and limited (think IDPA ESP/SSP), minimum caliber is .38 Spl or 9mm.  The rimfire division also has an open and an iron sight category. Centerfire shooters will start with a loaded gun holstered and their hands in the surrender position.  Rimfire will start with the gun at low ready pointed at a spot 10′ in front of the shooter.

One extra note for Steel Challenge: Whatever you bring to shoot, make sure
you have at least a couple of spare magazines. And if you don’t have enough
to shoot an entire stage, coordinate with a nimble fingered friend to be
nearby, loading magazines bunny quick! 😉 Bring plenty of ammo and a cooler with you. Hope to see you there!
