  1. After a 30 year break from shooting, a friend took me out and I shot pistols, and rifles for the first time ever. All my previous experience was Shotguns (local trap matches). Had a blast, bought a Sig and started punching holes in paper. Then I wadded up my Motorcycle, separated shoulder, lots of bruising. Long story boring, it hurt to shoot the Sig. Met a guy at the range shooting a Ruger 10/22, after talking for a bit, he tells me "You should shoot this.." well I did, and next thing ya know I bought a 10/22. Put a cheap scope on it and went back to punching holes in Paper. That got boring, too easy with the scope, even at 100 yds. There are some steel swinging targets at 100 yds at our range, so started plinking them... well that was fun, the little plink a second or so after ya pull the trigger makes me giggle for some reason. a few months later and I put a reflex on the Ruger, and bought a Buckmark Pistol, and I'm gonna shoot Steel. First match was our local Rimfire, shot it with a buddy, had a blast and didn't finish dead last. I am totally hooked. Realize there are lot's of areas I can improve, but decide the most obvious is time from Low Ready to the first Plate. Worked on that a lot, then signed up and shot the open rimfire rifle and pistol divisions at our steel challenge match. Had just as much fun, though not sure I was completely satisfied with my performance, "pressed" too much and had misses. Between the first rimfire and the steel match, I built a rifle just for steel. Needed something lighter (and let's face it, just cooler) for my bad shoulder. Rifle came out better than I hoped, and runs very well, no issues, except the guy pulling the trigger. Lots, and lots of practice the last 3 weeks and shot my second rimfire match yesterday! 9th in open, 10th overall. outta 40 shooters... Very pleased considering the names above me would be known to most people. I'm still no threat to them, but just breathing the same air is pretty cool, and seeing my name in the same neighborhood as theirs is fuel to practice on. Besides continuing to work on time to first plate, I need to work on stopping the swing, I keep over swinging past the next target. If you can't tell, I'm HOOKED!

  3. Have two 10/22's. Want to convert 1 to a .22 mag or .17. Question is, can this be done and where do I get the parts?
  4. Well, this past weekend I shot my first Steel Challenge match and it was so fun I could hardly believe it. Way more laid back than USPSA, and less stressful. You make a mistake on one of your runs and you have four more to make up for it. Anyway here is my match from this Sunday. If anybody sees anything I should change or what would help me go faster let me know, but I mostly just wanted to let everybody know that Steel is so fun and that I love it!

  6. On 26-27 April 2013, Pikes Peak Practical Shooters and the Pueblo West Sportsmans Assn will host the Rocky Mountain Regional National Shooting Sports Federation Rimfire Challenge. These matches used to be known as the Ruger Rimfire Challenge. The match will be held over both days, but it only takes one day to complete giving you the choice of days. The targets are all steel. The stages are very new shooter friendly and require no movement. You can shoot a second gun on the second day in a different division. The main match will be 11 stages, 5 rifle and 6 pistol requiring a minimum of 220 rounds to complete. There will also be an optional Precision Rifle Side match. Juniors are free. Mil/LE are $20. I am limited on slots, so get those apps in soon. Keep in mind the past 3 Regional Steel Challenge Matches in Pueblo have filled up. NSSF RIMFIRE APP.doc
