This Sunday will be a Steel Challenge match at Castlewood Rod and Gun club. I will be attending this match and encourage anyone wanting to try the shooting sports to come out and give it a try! Steel challenge is a great place to start in the shooting sports. You stand in place and shoot at 5 steel targets that vary in distance and size. The goal is to shoot fast and accurate. You do 5 strings with 4 of the 5 strings counted towards your score.
There will be 6 stages. The match registration starts at 8am and shooting begins at 9am. As long as you have a basic shooting skills and can handle a gun safely this is a great sport to try out and get that much needed trigger time while doing it in a fun and safe place! Junior shooter are also encouraged to come along with a guardian.
