What is Steel Challenge?
The basics are simple and anyone can play: The shooter stands in front of five steel targets. At the sound of the buzzer, they shoot four in any order, then a designated stop plate last. Repeat this five times and move on to the next series of 5 targets.The shooting is pretty easy; the hardest target may be a ten-inch disk at eighteen yards, you get as many shots as you want, and hitting it anywhere counts.You also get to throw out your worst run on every stage. How much easier could it get?
The trick is as soon as the buzzer sounds, the clock starts and it doesn't stop until you hit the stop plate.
Once you get done with all your runs, the times are added up and the lowest time wins.
At the world championship level, a tenth of a second can make the difference between first and second place. With thousands of dollars in prizes on the line, the pace gets fast and furious.
At the local level, while we have a couple top-25 shooters in the club, we also have shooters at every level from beginner on up. Some may be out only to clang some steel, some may be law enforcement officers working on their skills, some may be friends racing to see who buys lunch, but everybody's out for a fun day on the range.
All kinds of different pistols compete in Steel Challenge, from .22's through production and semi-custom guns to space-age race guns. At the end of the day, you'll see where you stand against people shooting similar equipment and also against everybody else.
.22 shooters have the fewest equipment requirements-- A .22, a few magazines and a bag. They start shooting from a low-ready position.
Centerfire shooters shoot everything from 9mm on up to .45 ACP. Centerfire shooters start with the pistol in a holster and the shooters hands must be held above their shoulders before the buzzer sounds.Read More
