Shot in the local "Steel Challenge" match yesterday; my first one of this type. Lots of fun. A bit different than other USPSA/IPSC/IDPA type matches as each stage consists of 5 steel plates of varying sizes, layouts and distances: 4 plates you shoot first in whatever order you deem quickest, and then a "stop plate." You shoot 4-5 strings at each stage and they throw out your worst time.

The video is long; I left all the footage in because the other guys on my squad were interested in seeing their stuff... so feel free to skim it.

Thought maybe people who haven't heard of this type of match would be interested.

I love shooting steel, I've bought some portable AR500 rated plates that are great for pistol all the way up to .308. Did I tell you I love to shoot steel !!!

Cool! I've been considering taking my 12-year old to one soon... he's good with the Beretta 92 but I may start him on a ruger 22/45 or something.

Are there any 22 steel matches held anywhere in your area? They are 100% steel and you use both a semi auto 22 rifle and a handgun. 5 strings on each stage for the pistol and 3 strings for rifle. Slowest time thrown out. Great place to start your son shooting.

Check out my 22/45 in my pictures. It's built for those matches.


Neat video

Not that I'm aware of, but you can shoot the above match with .22 if desired. They also have a yearly .22 tactical match.
