Steel Challenge

What is the Steel Challenge?:

The match draws top shooters from a broad spectrum of shooting sports, including USPSA, IDPA, SASS, GSSF and others.

The match is highly spectator-friendly and the competition is easy to understand – it is all about the speed.

Steel shooting offers a port of entry to the shooting sports that is far less intimidating than practical shooting. Steel shooting provides an excellent starting place for young or beginning shooters. It also provides a soft way for those who have begun to suffer the problems associated with ageing a vehicle to remain involved in the shooting sports. All this provides an alternative for those who might otherwise be lost to shooting.
