Sunday, August 2nd Falling Steel match

On Sunday, August 2nd, we will be hosting a Falling Steel match/ Fun Shoot.  This match will consist of 5 stages of steel targets that must fall to score.  Each stage will have 25-35 targets and the shooter, or shooters, will have 60 seconds to knock down all that they can.  I say shooters, because it is possible to shoot this as a two person team, with both shooters attacking the same array simultaneously.

If you wish to shoot without score, or use a 22lr it is possible (so it's like a fun shoot if you choose a non-competition aspect)

The cost is $20 for an individual, and the same for a two person team, so that's only $10 per person.

We've done these type of falling steel matches for a couple of years now and they are fast and fun.  There is no movement allowed and no holsters.  A minimal amount of equipment is required.  To increase your speed and have even more fun find a partner and shoot as a team.  It is a crazy good time.

This is a great match to shoot with your kid, spouse, or non-competitive shooter as a teammate, but it's fun for singles too.  There won't be any type of payout so what difference does it make?  Just be safe and have a good time.  That's how and why we keep the entry fee low.

Divisions include:

Stock Auto (10 Rounds)

Stock Auto 140 (140 mm mags, so up to 17-24 for most pistols)
Open Auto (red dots and 10 rounds)
Open auto 170 (red dots and 170mm mags so up to 31 +/- rounds with some pistols.
Stock Revolver (6 rounds and iron sights)
Open Revolver (unlimited rounds and red dots permitted)
PCC (Pistol caliber carbine, and carbine style "pistols" too)
IDC (I don't care, which is 22s, different guns on different stages, and/or not for score)

All of these divisions may be shot individually or as a two man team.  Let me know when signing up and if shooting as a team let me know who your partner is.

We will not allow shotguns, more than one gun per stage, or calibers that may damage our steel.  You will only shoot each stage once.

If you have any questions or to sign up please email    Please let me know what division you'll be shooting, if you are shooting with a partner and if there is anyone you would like to be squadded with.  New for this month:  If you are hearing impaired let me know.  Some squads will have light as well as sound activated start signals.

There will be a maximum number of shooter allowed so don't hesitate to sign up.  We will not take walk-ons.  Be advised those who sign up and do not show up may not be allowed to sign up for future matches.  These fill up and we don't have room for those who are no shows when others are forced to sit out.

Please plan on being at the club not later than 8:15 to pay and register.  Mandatory match briefing will be at 8:45 am and we will be shooting 9:00 at the latest.
