When the juicy mental game becomes a distraction from the actual shooting you end up at a carnival.
To each their own.

We have a local devoted following for SC but the best shooters use it as training and trigger time in prep for USPSA. It was a godsend for me to get me shooting again after they rebuilt my knee - if you are mobility impaired it is a way to compete and shoot.

I think you pretty much nailed it here.
Some people like the repetitive measureable courses that are SC, some people like tearing ass around a brand new stage every time.

I liked this thread.
I like both but shoot steel more. The wife likes steel a lot and hates shooting cardboard so that's one reason why steel wins the weekend. I like that it's pretty much the same round count and it's over by lunch time.
Another is just me being bothered by half of the uspsa people that are incredibly lazy. I'm a hard worker, usually get there when the first few guys get there and start building stages. I get really bothered when I see so many people tailgating for over an hour while the same 10 people build everything. I get all most in fight mode when one of those same tailgaters stand in my way and try to tell me what needs to be done.

missed this thread the first time around. we run steel mostly on mon/wed nights and only have weekend matches on memorial day, july 4th and labor day. We have a bunch of rimfire shooters whose primary focus is steel challenge. Some of them are a bit mobility challenged, but others less so. We've also gotten a lot of uspsa shooters that started with steel.
Personally I like shooting steel.... but I shoot for an hour on a weeknight and it's free for me (board members and uspsa match staff). It's only $3 for club members, so pretty cheap. Lots of folks just use it as some live-fire practice for uspsa. Lots of folks take it seriously enough to show up every week in the summer, but it still takes 2nd place to uspsa (that would be me).
