The Gruesome Details

This Saturday, the 29th of September, Team York will be hosting our first ever Falling Steel, Man on Man FunShoot.
The concept is like this: 4-6 stages of mirrored steel arrays, with a cross steel target in the center;  Each shooters starts at either end of the array, and the first to fell the center dual cross target wins! Its a steel shoot off!
Each squad will get to spend 45minutes or so on each stage shooting it as many times, and with as many different shooters and as many different ways, as you want.  Then all squads rotate to the next stage, and do it again.
There will not be a "multi gun" option this month, but you may shoot "multiple guns", a different gun on different strings.   We will invite handguns and carbines in all standard handgun calibers (including .22LR we have a plan) and shotguns.

For those of you in a non speed/competitive mode, just say so, and I will squad you accordingly, but be warned, this is real fun, you may be assimilated.......

Squadding is important here, if you and your buddy want to compete let me know, I'll be sure you shoot together.

We will end the day in a FunShoot final shootoff!  Taking the winners from each squad and pitting them together in a "sudden death" dual!

The round count for this shoot is simply rangerific ridiculous! Bring a s much as you want, this is a real ammo burner. Scoring?  Scoring is simple, last steel standing looses.  Don't think you are fast enough?  We can factor in handicaps, don't let that deter you.

Its starting to get a bit chilly in the mornings, so how about we start check in at 8:00, a live fire demo of the concept at 9:00 and shooting by 9:15 this month.

Cost is $15 for adults, $5 for under 18.

Preregister now, will will be accepting 50 shooters max.  Email yorksignup@gmail.com.

Stay tuned for more details this week.

Remember, York is a cold range, please have all firearms unloaded and secured when you arrive at the range, including CC permit holders.  Handle firearms only after you register, and only at the safe tables or under direction of a range officer.
