The scores are posted to practiscore. Normally there is a link on MSGO as well. Kind of tough when not having all the players that make things go smoothly.

This was the 4th steel challenge my son Cole and I have been to. We aren't fast but we are having fun. The weather was perfect and people were great as usual. As for the people that put in the hard work to make it happen thanks a keep up the good work.

Having fun is an important part of shooting these matches in my opinion. Have you shot any of the outlaw steel matches yet?

haven't shot outlaw steel yet, the thought of knock-down targets sounds fun. I have a 1911 i'm getting ready, I have a belt/holster rig on my Christmas list.

Lately there haven't been any knock down targets being used. The biggest differences have been no shoot targets in front or near certain plates you need to hit. Also the distances to targets are not set in stone. There could be only 2 or 3 plates where you might shoot one plate 2 or 4 times before the stop plate. It varies every match. Sometimes there is a carry gun match that designed for carry pistols such as a 5 shot revolver. They are fun to shoot and not having all the stuff to shoot a USPSA match isn't a problem. I have a Springfield 1911 and I could get by with the holster and double mag pouch it came with if I put the other magazines in my back pocket. The normal field course we once did was something I was able to do with just that setup. Come to think of it my first couple of USPSA matches were done that way.

You have to understand I'm there to have fun and not become the next grand master.
