Time to start competing. Going to shoot the Steel Challenge at Mid Carolina Rifle Club this weekend. Never shot competitively so this should be fun. Wish me luck. :twisted:

You don't need luck, just shoot straight. :cool:

Oh, and have a good time- then give us a detailed report too, since we won't be there to enjoy it with you. ;)

I'm trying to get a buddy of mine to take pictures and videos. I think it's the best way to improve. To actually see for yourself what your doing. If it's not too embarrissing I'll post up.

That was a lot of fun. :D
What I learned:
*Make sure your screws are tightened down on the adjustable sights
*Buy a couple more mags
*Slow down on the small plates

My best time was 4:06 on smoke and hope. Don't like pendulum. Something about 10" plates at 18yrd after retightening my sights.

If you don't mind, what were the warnings for? I've not shot a formal competition and I think I would like to try it sometime. I need to go watch one or two.
Thanks, Dave

Here is the link for the match calender at the club. Anyone can go to the matches. Matches are usually $10 for the first gun and $5 for the second.

I almost broke 180. Was told that this is common with newbies. Second was when I ran out of ammo and had to reload. I put the gun on the table which by the rules means that I'm not in control of it.

Everyone there was very supportive and friendly. This is my second year there.

Breaking 180: Imagine a wall going through you if your are standing squarely to the targets in front of you. Breaking 180 is when a bullet coming out of your barrel will hit that wall. Allways keep your barrel pointing towards the targets. I was really getting into shooting and almost did that once.

I love steel!
If I had a place to practice I would consider participating.
I used to shoot Hunter Pistol Silhouette.
Might still be doing it if I was close enough to practice there.
