CWSA Steel Challenge Practice

One of the practice stages. Shoot each white plate once, in any order, then shoot the yellow stop plate.


KeeWee demonstrates the rimfire start position, waiting for the buzzer.


Center fire starts with a holstered gun and both hands in the air. Here's "Evil Al" showing how it's done!


Don't mess with Al!



KeeWee and I just got back from a few hours at the CWSA range shooting in a practice session for the upcoming Steel Challenge series of matches starting up in a few weeks.

We had two stages set up, and we were shooting against the clock, but just for practice.

Centerfire classes start with a holstered gun and with both hands in the air. Rimfire starts with the gun in one hand pointed down at a 45 degree angle, and the other hand in the air.

You can shoot the white plates in any order, hopefully hitting each one once. The yellow stop plate is then shot last, after hitting each of the white ones. The steel plates are fairly large, and vary in distance from 8 yards to 35 yards away. Shooting slowly, they are easy to hit. The object, however, is to shoot them quickly. Then they get a LOT harder to hit!

The really fast shooters can hit all five in under two seconds!. That's not wasting a lot of time!!

NOTE TO SELF: I need to practice a WHOLE lot more!!

It was a practice day to get us used to a new format event. They set up a few stages for us to try and see what it's all about. In two weeks we go for real.....
