Steel Challenge 3/13

On March 13th York Izaak Walton will host it's first Steel Challenge match of the year. We will start this match at 11:00am so things have a chance to warm up a little. We will be shooting 5-7 stages depending on the weather. The better it is, the more we will shoot. The minimum round count could be as little as 125 if it is cooler, and 175 if it is nicer. Bring plenty.

We will have several divisions for all combinations of centerfire and rimfire, scoped and iron sighted, revolver and automatic handguns. We will also have divisions for rimfire and centerfire carbines (pistol calibers only)

There will be a 150 power factor maximum allowed, and we don't allow hyper-velocity 22s or 22magnums, and we will check any suspect loads. Some 40s&w, and almost all factory 45acp are too powerful. 38 supers etc must be loaded down, and all 357 mag and 44 mag and the like are out. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. We can chrono before the match starts if necessary, but damaging our steel will result in your banishment from our kingdom.

For centerfire handguns you will be starting from the holster. Rimfire handguns do not.

It is preferred that you have 5 magazines or speedloaders for each gun you would like to use.

The entry fee will be $20 per gun. Two guns max. We will payout based on divisions and classes. If you have a USPSA classification we use it, if not we assign one. You do not have to be a member of USPSA, SCSA, or Izaak Walton to participate in this match, and no safety check is required for this match.

To sign up email us at with your name, USPSA class if you have one, division(s), and anyone you would like to be squadded with. You should receive a confirmation email within a day or two with some more details about the match.

Our next USPSA match will be on Sunday, March 27th. With the invite for it coming out about a week before.

Wow, this match has only been announced for about 12 hours and is already half full. And I haven't heard form a bunch of regulars yet, so I expect it to fill quickly. If you haven't signed up yet but want to shoot this one you better get on it.
