Five Stages:

General Principles:

Steel Challenge scoring is simple: your time is your score!
Each stage consists of five targets, commonly referred to as plates. Four are standard plates, and the fifth is designated as the stop plate.
Each of the standard targets must be hit at least once before hitting the stop plate, and the time stops when the stop plate is hit. Competitors may fire as many rounds as they deem necessary for each string of fire. The worst string on each stage will be thrown out, and the total of the remaining times will be competitor’s score for that stage. All stages will be shot five times with the exception of "Outer Limits" which will be shot four times.
The maximum time allowed for an individual string is 30 seconds.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
***NOTE***

*HSC is a COLD RANGE: All firearms will be kept UNLOADED except on the firing line under the direct supervision of a Match Officials.
*Gun handling at Safe tables only and must be brought to the firing line in a holster or case.
*Eye and ear protection is required for all shooters and spectators.
*Holsters: In general, holsters shall be mounted in the general vicinity of the waist, must cover the trigger, and must safely hold/retain the gun. All Centerfire handguns must be appropriate for holster use.
*HSC will allow "Low Ready" starts for Centerfire handguns (2 seconds added per run)
*Rimfire competition does not involve the use of a holster
*Each competitor is expected to come to the firing line ready to shoot, with an appropriate amount of ammunition in an appropriate number of magazines or speed-loaders or other loading devices.
*Minimum cartridge for centerfire competitions (38 Special, 9X19).
*Rimfire firearms must be .22 Long Rifle (.22LR) only
*Any ammunition deemed unsafe or likely to damage the targets will be removed from use
*Any standard plate which has not been hit before the stop plate will count as a Miss. Each Miss on a standard plate will result in a 3 (three) second penalty, added to the shooter’s time for that string.
*If the stop plate is not hit, the score for that string is 30 seconds

Weather right now says dry and sunny [smile]

Hey Paul,

Forgive him, please - like the rest of us Super Seniors, the memory is the second thing to go. [rofl]

Sorry Paul, I skipped over the course of fire. Hope I have better luck on Sat. Thanks for pointing out my "senior moment" Frank.

I might be in for this.

Without looking a the rules yet... Is this designed for a .45 (Major Power factor) or is a 9mm also considered a mans gun here?

9mm is fine for this match, just try to have 5 mags so you can run all the strings without having to toss back
a mag to have someone load it for you.

Want to thank everyone for coming out and having fun at HSC.
I big thanks to all the RO's and scoring helpers, without you folks these matches wouldn't happen.
And another big thanks to Jon & Ramon for coming out early and setting all the steel up.

And a special thanks the 2nd gun crew, they all pitched in and tore down and cleaned up all the stages
and put all the gear away in record time.

See you all in September, remember there's no August SC match.
