    Given all the range work, will we still be able to use golf carts/atv's to get around the match?

    Yes, but they are not allowed on any grass surfaces, only on the gravel. There is gravel to every range, you just can not go "downrange" with any vehicle including golf carts

    This is a 125 round match. You are allowed to take extra shots at targets to hit them. Because of that, I bring at least 250 rounds with me. You are allowed to take home any ammo you don't use. Reloads are allow if they are safe and reliable. You don't have to make a certain power factor the way you do for USPSA.

    What Dave said - most people bring about 250 and will probably use at least 175-200, depending on their proficiency. I've seen people use 300. I usually figure on missing a target or two so I only need 130 :).

    HAHA, we have all seen you shoot. :)

    I always bring 300 rounds just in case I suck worse than I normally do.

    I often have twice as many rounds in the truck as I have in the range bag. I never know how things are going to go until I finish shooting the second stage.

    I wish I could be there for this match. It just isn't possible this time around.

    I suggest letting the people on your squad know you are shooting your first steel match before you start shooting. They will help a new shooter as much as they can. I have not found a bad squad to be on at Magnolia so far. Remember, having fun is important.

    A brick of .22s don't take much space.

    The old gate will be fine.
