As most of you already know this years match will be held August 19, 20 & 21. Shooters may choose either time slot available on those days or more if competing in more than one class.

Please see www.wallsofsteel.com for match info, entry forms, directions, pics from years past and whatever else you may like to know.

If you can't find what you're looking for there then feel free to contact me at any time.

This will be our 5th year and each year it has been growing and I expect this year to be no exeption.

Colt Firearms will be the match sponsor this year and will generously be donating two handguns again to be awarded to two lucky individuals. Not too mention the various sponsors we get every year who donate prizes and/or cash to help with expenses such as shirts and target repairs and improvements.

July 19 is the deadline to enter to be eligible for a free shirt. If you enter after that date the shirt will not be included with your entry fee.

Hope to see you there.

Bummed that IDPA NER falls on the same weekend this year. Not sure why NER shifted a week this year.

Jim has been working hard on this year's Walls of Steel and has totally rearranged the bays. It looks like a great match this year. Unfortunately, many folks will be out shooting the National Steel Challenge and IDPA Regional, but it is also Fortunate, cause it might takes some of the best talent out and gives us a better chance to win some MOOLA!!! So bring a friend this year and introduce them to this awesome sport. There are still openings for Sat and Sunday.
Hope to see y'all there!

We've got to coordinate this better next year. I'm working NER this weekend.

People, if you've never shot falling steel you don't know what your missing. It's a blast! Bring two guns and shoot one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Rotate SOs out, run down to RI, shoot and come back! I don't see a problem here. :p
Ken with Major matches- you need to keep the SO teams together on each pit. Make sure to give the SOs a hug for their hard work!

Uhh. I'm usually good picking up on the sarcasm... I don't know you well enough. LOL. Someone suggested that we do this today though and they were serious!

Well I for one can't wait for this weekend. The only bummer is that I haven't gotten much practice in the last couple of months so I will be very rusty. It doesn't matter though because there isn't much that's more fun than stage after stage of knock-down steel. Ya just keep BLASTING away till it's all down.

I'm RO'ing on Saturday so I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of you folks. I'm shooting with my 12yr old son on Sunday and I'm very excited to watch him give it a try.

Don't worry Cuz. I'm bringing a sack of rocks to throw at the steel when I run out of bullets

Thinking about throwing in a .22 handgun side match as well as the shotgun match. Anybody have any thoughts on that? Yay or Nay?

Also have some pretty cool stage designs this year. Tried to shake it up a bit. Actually have four stages setup already as of 3:00 this afternoon. What a wet day to be doing that.
