  1. There is a steel challenge match at Clark County shooting complex, I think every other thursday or friday. Check it out. later, Karl @ GT
  2. I think SHOWDOWN has changed more than you realize by changing the start positions. Each stage is unique and has different challenges. I can not remember how many different start positions have been used by SC since 22 was started, each time there was something that needed to be fixed. This stage is one that did not need to be changed. later
  3. <<<An aiming point no more than 2' high will be placed in front of each shooting box 10' forward of the box>>> This wording allows the aiming point to be anywhere from ground level to 2' high. This should read: <<<An aiming point set 2' high will be placed in front of each shooting box 10' forward of the box>>> Why was Showdown changed? There was no problem with the start positions on Showdown, with the old set up the stage was shot several different ways from both boxes. Now it appears to be a new ROUNDABOUT from both shooting boxes. The only problem was the crazy start position on Outer Limits. regards, Karl @ GT
  4. Hey, thanks very much, the pallet of paint just arrived and we SOLD two cases immed. thanks again, Karl @ GT
  5. Hello, GT TARGETS is a new dealer for STEEL TARGET PAINT, we should have a pallet delivered early this week. single & double can orders cost $4.45 each Cases of 12 cost $4.25 each We have FREE samples that we are sending with each target order. See you at the US Nationals. later, Karl @ GT
  6. Hello, We have been testing the earth magnets for about 2 years with great success, mostly at 3 gun events & side matches, UNTIL the AREA 8 match this year. For some unknown reason the USPSA/IPSC open guns were breaking/cracking the magnets very often, we used approx. 16 magnets during the weekend for just 2 targets. Then we used the same targets in a PRO AM match and a 3 gun match and had ZERO magnets break. We are not sure why the magnets were cracking and breaking so often at the AREA match but we are gonna hold off selling to USPSA/IPSC clubs for now (trying to save headaches with broken magnet returns). These were TEXAS STAR arms set up on a swinger stand. I think the original design by Terry Ashton is still the best set up available. good luck, Karl @ GT
  7. Hello Zack, Yes, thanks very much. The rules have always stated that you can not go DOWN in class once you reach that level. But with such a new classification system for all the new classes and the peak times not keeping up with the shooters, there are gonna be many shooters that will not be in the correct class. This may cause a problem later, sample: the Master class shooter you mentioned above, that shooter ends up in the middle of A class after all the times are sorted out. That shooter will never have a chance to win money or prizes at any large event that award by performance, or even a decent finish in Master class because his times and scores are not what they are capable of shooting in the real world. The President & others that make decisions may need to consider adjusting some of these shooters into the proper classification. Maybe on a shooter by shooter basis when the shooter requests a review. thanks for your help in sorting out SC, Karl @ GT
  8. Hey Zack, How does the process for updating the peak times work? Who does the voting? How many of the people that vote actually shoot steel challenge? What info do they use to determine the peak times? Thanks, Karl @ GT
  9. Hey, Bill is correct ZIG ZAG is the original stage from SC (not zig zag 93) the guys at Old Bridge would always drop one stage and shoot ZIG ZAG for the big SC match, and we had a zig zag side event several times. The TEXAS SC match had a zig zag side event a few years back, Richie LaBracca won the side match with a single run of 1.11........ a great stage. later
  10. Hello, I would suggest that the start position for Outer Limits be changed to a start cone in front of each start box. The current set up with one cone in the center of the range is more of a 'punishment' than a start position, it does not make any sense. The stage is great as is ....no other changes needed. OH YEAH, ZIG ZAG is one of the best SC stages ever. thanks for the new class system, regards, Karl @ GT
  11. new DEATH STAR video from Ken..........he has additional video on his youtube list thanks very much Ken.
  12. Working on getting the video loaded on this thread. Maybe later today.
  13. Foto of the two DEATH STARS complete and ready to go. Sorry, can not get the foto to the correct position.
  14. Hello, Scott has assembled a very nice frame for the DEATH STAR. We made a prototype for a 3 gun nation PRO shooter and it worked great after a few small changes. Now Scott has incorporated the changes into a production DEATH STAR FRAME and he made 3 more. The frames are very large and heavy but should last a long time. I hope to have the new frame on the website in the next week or two. Price is not firm yet, retail approx. 575.00 club price approx. 525.00 The new DEATH STAR FRAME should work with any Terry Ashton or GT TARGETS TEXAS STAR. Will try to post fotos later today. later, Karl @ GT
  15. Hello, the IPSC A zone, approx. 6" x 12" will retail for 44.00 and the BE price will be 35.00 I do have a small stack of the targets in stock. thanks, Karl @ GT
