  1. Kettlefoot Gun Club began Steel Challenge monthly matches in May of 2019 and 9 months later our entries continue to grow. We have new shooters every match with many returning and bringing friends to future matches. Included in these new shooters are several juniors who are learning safe firearms handling from a Range Officer. If you are in the Bristol, VA/TN area on the second Sunday of the month you are invited to come shoot. We shoot 2 rounds with round 1 beginning at 11:00 am and round 2 at 2:00 pm. Many will shoot both rounds and shoot 2 guns each time for a total of 4 guns in a single match. Search for Kettlefoot Gun Club on Practiscore for complete details and on-line registration.
  2. great app. i like the easy access with all the info you need in one location.
  3. i have 2 slide rides by c-more on my rifle and pistol. just recently upgraded module to a 16 moa and it is great for steel challenge. the size and brightness really helps on bright sunny days.
  4. I believe Steel Challenge helps all pistol sports. Plenty of practice with draw and target acquisition. Next is trigger control and swing. These 4 exercises done repeatedly in SCSA will help with all shooting sports. Couple this with some time doing dry fire and a small amount of time at the range and you have a great routine.
  5. I went with Atlas about a 1 1/2 years ago and went full custom. I knew very little about an open gun but Adam took the time to go over every item on the build sheet explaining everything in detail. He guaranteed a 3 month delivery and Cat called 3 days early to let me know it was completed. Workmanship and support has been amazing. Gun functions flawlessly. I hope to purchase another Atlas in the near future.
  6. I have several brands and recently went with the Holosun on my open gun. I think the large window and large outer ring (65 MOA) makes target acquisition much faster.
  7. I have an Atlas that Adam custom built for me in 3 months to the day. The quality is immaculate and the pistol has never missed a beat. I knew nothing about open guns but Adam stayed on the phone with me for an hour answering every question I had and he wasn't sure if I was even going to buy one. His support of his product is what will take me back for another.
  8. The large display of the 510 helps pick-up the first target quicker and you will see decrease in stage times.

    Bul Armory?

    Gilbert Perez is a dealer for BUL in East Tennessee. He keeps a large selection on hand at any time. They are very well built. I shoot STI and Atlas. The BUL is a step above the STI.
  10. I have the 510 on my Atlas open gun and it is great. I started with DPP 2.5. Amazing what the difference is.
  11. Moved to open after about a year of shooting USPSA. I love the class. Just a lowly "b" shooter but having fun!!
  12. I have not tried the 115's by MG but I have shot the 95gr with VV N320. Was very accurate in my Springfield. I believe it was 4.0 grains. Very soft shooting
  13. Legal stages for classification. Mostly searching for some rebuttal if questioned about the safety. My only response so far has been that thousands of matches are shot each year at these distances. Secondly, distance is only one of many factors that can contribute to a richochet. Target quality and bullet type are factors as well. I have been tapped by some fragments when targets are out to 15-20 yards and beyond. Does anyone have a trick to help angle a target down slightly if your targets are the "hanging type" from a bracket on top of the 2x4?
  14. Sarge, You are correct. There are a few stages with 21' or 7 yard shots as well as a few 24' or 8 yard shots. No option to move them and still be an official stage for score.
  15. Our club has started shooting steel challenge recently and a few questions have come up about the very close shots that are closer than 10 yards, especially in centerfire. Has anyone ever had any issues with those close plates within 10 yards? I have never seen any concerns talked about on this forum. And is there any special setup tricks to eliminate even the possibility of any ricochet?
