    The funny thing about Steel Challenge is that it looks kind of stupid on the surface. However, once you actually TRY it and see that maybe your combined speed and accuracy are a little worse than you thought, it looks a bit better.

    Then you bring your buddy to have a shootout on those stupid plates and it's "Fight On!".

    Drag out those Glocks and M&P's and have at it in Production Class. You won't beat the rimfire rifles and pistols but you'll be dueling against your buddy with similar equipment. It's addicting for sure, especially if you're the one having to buy the beer later because you lost the match by a half second to your buddy.

    Got an old .22LR rifle sitting around with nothing to do? It's a good fit in Steel Challenge. The same goes for a 22LR pistol. Run iron sights or add an optic. It's your choice.

    My little group thought it would be a one time thing, just to make sure we tried all of the available shooting sports locally. Nope. We've all come back in big time shooting it every week now.

    Guys, give it a try, especially with a buddy. In fact for those of you who have never shot in any type of friendly competition, well you're missing one of the best things in shooting and depending on what you choose (Steel, IDPA, USPSA, ICORE, etc) you'll probably already have a perfectly suitable sidearm to play with!

    I’ve shot it once and it is a blast, I’ll do it again in a heartbeat. Now that I think of it, I believe OSS has a steel challenge as well as GSSF. I’ll have to look into it more. Just wish it was closer to home.

    Had to add this here as we're talking about Steel Challenge.

    One of the stages in Steel Challenge is called "Smoke and Hope". It's probably everybody's favorite as it's super fast to shoot, the first four targets are large and close, and the temptation to just blast on through it is too much to resist.

    I finally managed to get a nice "sub-2 second" run on a string as I had a few guys tell me I couldn't do it with the stock Ruger PCC.

    Wrong. I've done it many times during a match but not with the video running. Here's the video after my squad had all run the stage.

    In the match I ran it at 2.11, 1.95, 1.93 and 1.82 for the four scoring strings. Too bad the camera guy couldn't figure out how to push the red button on an iPhone. Arrrrrrgh!.
