General details of the Competition and its history
Steel shooting offers a port of entry to the shooting sports that is far less intimidating than practical shooting. Steel shooting provides an excellent starting place for young or beginning shooters. It also provides a soft way for those who have begun to suffer the problems associated with aging a vehicle to remain involved in the shooting sports. (Dave Stanford 1989)
What will be our potential schedule moving forward?
Regular Monthly Steel Challenge Match each 2nd. Saturday of every month starting in September. Help keep the Steel Challenge Alive by supporting this match every month. As attendance grows, additional match weekends will be added. Range Memberships (Yearly) are available.
Is it the same competition every month?
Yes and No,
Yes, The Stages of fire will remain the same classic eight stages of the Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championships. This way people can gauge their progress and skill level, get classified with the SCSA, and set personal bests, etc.
No, because as attendance grows, we can offer separate matches for Pistol caliber carbines, open race guns, 22 rifles, and pistol, etc.
