Or is this even considered action shooting??
Shot my first steel challenge match over the weekend.. Which in the grand scheme of my shooting experience is my 7th or 8th match... having only heard of this stuff in March or April of this year.
Anyway... I ended up winning my division. (limited) and 8th overall behind the rimfire optics, and pcc people.. I think there was one person that finished ahead of me that had actual iron sights on their gun...
I know I'm not fast.. so really I am a bit puzzled..
Do *real* shooters stay away from steel challenge? Is it just area dependent? (which I'm guessing is the case)
I looked the stuff on youtube after the fact, and there are some silly fast people out there.. But are these people only doing this?
I mean, I thought it was cool, but if the stages are the same every time.. I can see it getting boring really quick.
From a USPSA match perspective, would the best approach to these types of match be to look at it as decent practice for draw consistancy and quick transition work?
