Jim Duncan- Steel Challenge Icon

Recommended Posts

It is with GREAT sadness that I inform you of Jim Duncan's passing. 😔


Jim was a fixture in both the SoCal & national Steel Challenge communities. He was the Outer Limits RO at the Steel Challenge WSSC in Piru from 1998-2011 and then an RO every year at the West Coast Steel Challenge & Briley West Coast Steel Championships from 2011-2016. Additionally, he was the MD for the Palm Springs Gun Club Steel Challenge matches.


He was a joy to shoot & compete with and was ALWAYS willing to help out a fellow competitor with his time, advice, ammo or equipment. Jim was especially helpful & giving to beginners & new shooters entering our sport. He certainly contributed more to our sport than he ever received from it. Jim was a true friend and made everyone a better person for having known him.


In addition to serving our sport, Jim loved & served his country & community with honor, both in the US Army as a Special Forces Green Beret and as an LEO in the Inglewood, CA PD.


Last year, Jim & his wife Janet (who was the Speed Option scorekeeper at the Piru WSSC) escaped California and moved to Kansas, where they had bought & began to settle into their dream home. He was so happy to finally have a property where he could setup his own shooting range.


Although we are GREATLY diminished with Jim's passing, Heaven has welcomed home another RO from the Golden Age of the Steel Challenge. Jim 👼 (Outer Limits) has been reunited with Loren Neill 👼 (Roundabout), Gene "Gunny" Ramey 👼 (5 to Go) & Jim Owen 👼 (Smoke & Hope). They will be there, waiting to call us to the line when it's our turn to join them. 😌 


Rest in peace, Jim. 🙏
