Do the majority of people find shooting steel challenge a useful training aid for uspsa? I personally never use to like shooting it because of the lack of movement but am starting to like it for target transitions

A draw, going one for one, repeatable execution, pressure to be consistent, you get to use your same USPSA gear. Uh yeah, I totally like it. I like it enough I bought the dry fire banners for it and use them to get some great gains in my Steel Challenge game.

I second the dry fire banners.  I also like it for transitions.

What are these dry fire banners? Maybe I know them by a different name but not ringing a bell

And..He is now doing USPSA Classifier stages.

 

I didn't know that.  I have the banners and really like using them.  Classifiers would be very cool too.  Brilliant. 

 

And by the way, his book is VERY good too.  Accept it as one person's perspective and take what you will.

I'm very good friends with Ken.  I'm actually going to do some free advertising for him.  I'm designing a jersey from Techwear with the shootsteelbanners logo.

Love steel challenge, for all reasons already stated, plus the clubs locally I shoot them in have a great bunch of guys shooting, so they are always a blast to do.

Really?  That's pretty cool. There is a growing interest in his stuff in my local area. Steel challenge is only a couple years old here and I'm one of the only GMs.  When people ask how to practice, I always make reference to Kens banners and book. If u get the jeresy finalized, let me know and I may get one.  I shoot two clubs here, with the possibility of a third, but even Ken says that might b too much.  I shoot the majors here in Kansas and 2 in nebraska.  Been looking to go to a jersey, especially for majors.  Let me know when it's ready and maybe I'll be one of ur first customers. Same for the classifier banners.  I think people would like em here.  Only negative I hear is expense.  They worth it though.

Yes steel challenge is definitely helpful with USPSA. It helps with draw skills, target acquistion, Speed, and your putting rounds down range. How could it not help? Plus its a ton of fun! I honestly like shooting steel challenge more than i like USPSA.

And you get to use all your same USPSA gear. Rather than say if you wanted your secondary/cross training gun sport to be IDPA or something.

Get a little older and you can still compete in steel challenge. Our club ,ARPC, has great people to shoot with , laugh and have lunch. Everyone participates.
