For Steel Challenge Official Rules see https://scsa.org/rules Each match we shoot a rotating 6 of the 8 Official Classifiers; included in the Appendix B section of the Official Rules.
Steel Challenge scoring is time plus penalties. All targets are steel. Stages each have 5 strings at the 5 steel targets; shoot at each target until it is hit. The stop plate is shot last. The competitor’s worst string per stage is removed from his stage score. Starts are gun in hand, pointed muzzle down at an 18” tall cone 10’ forward of the shooting box. Centerfire handgun starts are from the holster, with wrists shoulder high. Long gun start is shouldered with muzzle pointing at cone.
Pistols must be either holstered or cased when competitor is not in the shooting box or in a designated Safe Area. Long guns are to be cased, with an empty chamber device inserted in the action.
For a beginning Steel Challenge competitor, here is your list of required equipment: eye and ear protection, Steel Challenge legal handgun or long gun, 5 magazines (most divisions) and a desire to be safe/learn. Tube fed long guns are not permitted. Bring 250 rounds ammo. Wait until after your first few matches to shop for more gear.
