  2. Hello; I want to start shooting the Limited Division in Rimfire Challenge and Steel Challenge and I'm considering the Browning Buck Mark URX Lite. Does anyone have any experience with stainless steel-sleeved, aluminum barreled Buck Marks? Any concern with reliability or longevity? Any input on the Buck Mark would be appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Hi all. I bought the full set of the Steel Challenge Banners (originally from steelshootbanners) last year here and they sat in storage as we moved. I just pulled them out of a box and would like to start using them but they never came with instructions. I searched here, watched a few video here and on steeshotbanners.com, all mention standing at 5' and 10' with the top of the round targets set at 5' off the ground. However, I have no idea what targets need to be set up at the 5' or 10' distances. Does anyone have the instructions that are mentioned in the videos? Can someone please attach a c
  4. This poll is aimed at the Steel Challenge competitor who is interested and tracks their performance against Peak times. Peak times for 2020 will be adjusted. Some show significant reductions in the peak time. This poll is informal and based on my curiosity of how competitors feel about the subject. Your name is not tracked or show in any of the results. Completely anonymous. Thanks.
  5. Hi all, i need some help. I have a 40 S&W STI Edge that I really enjoy. Looking to shoot steel challenge and therefore looking for a 9mm Luger. Considering one one of these 3: STI CZ Tactical Sport Orange Walther PPQ Q5 Match For those who shoot steel, what are your thoughts? Any other gun you would recommend, and why? Thanks!
  6. HI Ya, I have tried to use my new Beretta 92FS in a few steel matches. However after 10 years of using a Springfield XD9 I find it real difficult to start with the safety on as the range officer requested. Is that necessary? Or am I legit to start hammer down in double action mode? much obliged, Max

  8. So I figured I should start this as a replacement to my scattered notes on shooting, this way they are in one place. Maybe others can help or my experience can help someone else out. I will try my best to organize posts for my own and other's sake. It may very well turn into an actual diary since shooting sports have quickly become a true passion of mine.
  9. I heard a pod cast concerning the Match DQ rule in Steel Challenge. I would like to hear your thoughts on the rule. What do you think? fair/unfair and why? Should a shooter be DQ'd for both guns? For Those who are unaware of the rule it's Steel Challenge Rule 8.1 8.1 Disqualifications, General Principles: Competitors who have been disqualified may not shoot during the remainder of the event. This includes events that span multiple days. However, completed match scores will still count. For example, if a competitor shoots a complete score in Revolver then disqualifies while s
  10. Dead Zero Shooting Park, in Spencer Tennessee, is hosting Tennessee's first State Steel Challenge Tier II Match, October 20-21, 2018. Tom Wright, the Match Director, is recruiting RO's to work the event. RO's can enter up to four guns free (one for each flight) for the flights they are working. He will be having AM and PM flights both Saturday and Sunday with eight squads of 10 guns each flight, including two shooting-RO's per squad. Shirts, Lunch, and Raffle Tickets will be provided as well. He still needs several RO’s. Anyone wishing to RO should contact Tom at twright@dead
  11. Hey Shooters! We have opened registration for the 2018 NJ State Steel Challenge Championship on June 3rd and 4th. http://www.obsteelchallenge.com/obsc-2018-registration We have changed some things up a bit and I think you guys will be pretty happy about the changes. You can shoot two guns in the same squad, just not back to back. You will have the ability to shoot 6 guns if you shoot 2 guns in each of the 3 sessions (Saturday June 2nd AM, Saturday June 2nd PM, Sunday June 3rd Session). If you are not very familiar with last year’s match, please feel f
  12. I am wondering how many section/state/area steel challenge matches are using the new classification system to award plaques or trophies? I have been to 3 level 2 matches since the new classification system came out and I haven't seen anyone award anything other than 1-2-3 overall in each division. What are others seeing?
  13. Hey all, I want this really to help myself see how I (hopefully) grow and get better as time goes on. I've been shooting for a lot of my life, growing up plinking an old 22, and when I got my "big boy job" out of college I essentially started collecting guns with the intent to some day compete. Never been much of an athletic type, but figured this could be my sport. I eventually settled on the M&P platform, so I use my Pro 9mm in production. I am currently unclassified in everything. I've shot Steel Challenge, 3 gun and NSSF Rimfire. I should be classified in Steel Challenge, bu
  14. I apologize in advance if this horse has died several times in the past ... or if it doesn't even belong here. Having come up dry using "search" I just have to ask ... USPSA rules state clearly that metal targets should not be engaged closer than 23 feet (2.1.3 / 10.5.17) ... it's a DQ. I know "Steel Challenge" is under USPSA's wing ... (it is on it's website anyhow!!) ... and that it has it's own rulebook ... but ... There are three (Steel Challenge) courses of fire that employ targets closer than 23 feet. 5 to Go has one at 21' Roundabout h
  15. The 2016 East Coast Steel Challenge Championship match was the largest sanctioned Steel Challenge match in the World! Our three-day Championship hosted 280 individual shooters, from 19 different states and two countries, shooting 420 different guns. Combined with our Spring and Summer matches, we had over 700 registrations for the entire series. We gave away over $20,000 in cash payouts across all three matches and over $70,000 worth of prizes for the random drawing prize table for our Championship Match. Our 2017 season will bring some exciting new changes to our match series. First, we are m
  16. Good day to all. Just hoping for some opinions and possibly a few suggestions on a dedicated SC open pistol. My current open gun for USPSA is in 9 Major, STI lower, and Infinity upper. I shoot as much SC as USPSA and have the itch for a new toy or upgrade. The way I see it I have a few options. 1. Run current pistol in both games with same major PF loads. A lot of guys do this and call it practice for pistol matches. Easiest option but still not optimal for SC. 2. Same pistol with modified load. I currently run MG 124g JHP's. Drop to 115's or 90 / 95's with same or slightly
  17. I was contemplating the idea of getting an open gun! Although I may not compete this year I was thinking I can get an open gun and start getting familiar with it! I would like to try and find one pistol to shoot open in USPSA and also shoot steel challenge with the same pistol. Is that not a thing? I don't know much about pistols and what makes them run smoother, flatter or more reliable! Open guns seem really technical! I found a gun on the forums that came with a 38 platform and 9 platform. Would it take a lot of adjusting to shoot major in open and then switch to shoot 9 that doesn't need m

  20. Good day all. I'm about to work up a steel load for my open gun. Basically this: Glock 34 LW barrel 11lb recoil. Jager 4 port comp. major loads are MG JHP, CCI SPP, 9.2g of VV 3N38 at 1.140 OAL. Makes 169-170 PF very consistently and shoots and runs great. I have several Speer 90g FMJ's I was going to try with the 3N38. Does anyone have experience with a similar load? Naturally I'm not concerned with making any PF or extreme accuracy with 35 yards max SC distance. Just reliability and mainly soft & flat running. When working up my major

  23. Having shot competitively for a couple years, having laid down goals, and having met some and not others, now seems like a good time to start writing about it. I shot a small amount when I was a teenager, but didn't give it much thought until I got out of Kansas State. Then, the simple, utilitarian guns I had gotten as sixteenth birthday presents (an old break-top 20 gauge and a 10/22 International) came with me to Colorado Springs. In 2009, I had an epiphany...namely that I was over 21 and this is America, so a handgun of my own seemed in order. I picked up a .22, then a 92FS, and shot both
  24. Shot my first ever steel challenge match tonight. Better yet, used a S&W Victory .22LR that I'd just picked up from the FFL an hour before. Put 50 rounds through it before the match to get used to it, gave it a quick bore snake and shot the match. Ended up 11 of 24 overall and on one stage was #3 overall. No malfunctions with the weapon - just the shooter. Had one stage where I just humped the poodle three different times out of five (other than that I'd have been in the top 8). Others where I was shooting high, just not used to POA on this one yet. Two things: 1) I'm addicted. I
  25. So I have always questioned the effectiveness and logic of running a comped Steel Challenge Open gun, especially when running light loads. As a test, I fit a bull barrel into my Phoenix Trinity 2011 open gun. The gun is now over 4 ounces lighter and the weight that was removed is from the end of the barrel (comp) so the gun swings much better now. I have a 9mm 1911 that I use as my Limited gun for SC. I run super light loads in the Limited gun so I used the same loads to test the new barrel in the Open gun. The 2011 now shoots super flat and super soft with the new barrel and might mouse fart
