Steel rocks! Not only is it fun, it is also a fantastic way to learn about your shooting and to increase your shooting skills. It is great for beginning shooters - the steel is reactive (you can hear it ring when you hit it). There is no real need for reloading on the clock. There is little (if any) movement. It can be shot with a .22 caliber handgun. For the experienced shooter, the challenge to get lower scores never ends. Steel is also "gun friendly". There are never more than five shots required at once. That means most revolvers will have spare rounds. We shoot on most 3rd Saturdays. Come on out and join in the fun!!! We shoot rain or shine.

• Shooter will engage an array of steel targets (various size and distance).

• This array of targets is called a stage.

• There are usually 4 stages in a match.

• The shooter gets 5 chances (runs) at each stage.

• The slowest run on each stage is discarded. The best 4 runs count for score.

• Targets will be between 8 and 40 yards in distance.

• Reloads are not required. There is little, if any, movement required.

• You will usually need 150 rounds of ammo (that is a minimum, bring more).

• Revolvers and semi-autos are welcome, in center-fire calibers from 9mm/ 38 and up to 45.

• We ask that you please download the magnums and supers to help save the wear and tear on the steel. Both lead and jacketed bullets are acceptable.

• Holsters are used for center-fire. No holsters are required for rim-fire.

• This match is produced by volunteers - please help with setup and tear-down when you can.

• Matches are held on the 3rd Saturdays, April through October, and weather permitting, March and November.
