Falling Steel Shoot

What started out as an unorganized thing is becoming much more. I guess people are just itching to shoot.

On Sunday, February 12th we will be hosting a falling steel match at York Izaak Walton. This match will have a lot of options availables so it should suit just about everyone. There are 112 pieces of steel so bring plenty of ammo. How much you need will depend on how much you miss.

There will be 2 time slots. The first one will be 10:00 am and the 2nd one will start at 1:00pm. We will take a maximum of 40 shooters for each and I expect each group to shoot for about 2 hours. You may only sign up for one slot at this time. (As of 1:13pm on 2/6 there are 2 slots available for 10:00.  Start putting on your request if you can shoot at 1:00 if you don't get in at 10:00) I want as many different people to have an opportunity to get in as possible. If we have openings after Wednesday I will allow those interested to sign up for a second time slot. I'll post on the blog Wednesday if there are 2nd slots available. Each slot will cost $10 and there will be no payouts.

There will be several gun choices:
Centerfire pistol only
Centerfire pistol caliber carbine only
Shotgun only (7.5 or 8 shot only)
Centerfire pistol and centerfire pistol caliber carbine multi-gun
Centerfire pistol caliber carbine and shotgun multi-gun
Centerfire pistol and shotgun multi-gun

Each of these gun choices will have several division choices:
Revolver (handgun only)
Single Stack (handgun only)
Production (handgun only = production style gun with 10 round mags)
Limited (handguns = load 140mm mags up & iron sights & no porting, carbines = iron sights, shotguns = no loading devices or detachable mags, 9 rounds max)
Tactical Optics (handguns = load 140mm mags up & iron sights & no porting, carbines = any optic, )
Open (handguns = load 170mm mags up, optics and porting allowed on all guns, shotgun = max 11 rds)
Outlaw Open (all guns allowed porting, multiple optics and no mag limits of any kind)

We are going to do advance sign up for this shoot. I wasn't going to, but now I am. Email me at and let me know if you want to shoot the 10:00am or 1:00pm slot and what gun(s) you'll be shooting, what division those guns are in, and if there is anyone you would like to shoot with. Do not delay, I expect this match to fill quickly.

Email me if you have any questions.

Check back here periodically for more details and updates.

Mr. Thompson,

Is there a power factor requirement?

I don't have a steel load for my gun. I use 175 PF stuff with a 125 GR JHP.

Not sure if this will fly with you guys. Haven't shot falling steel in a million years, would love to shoot with you folks.

Let me know at your convenience.
