There's nothing new under the sun, I recognize that fact. Still, shooting steel is pretty new to me.
Today I packed up a few pistols, a large portion of ammunition, and headed off to the SLCFSA range. There, the activities in full swing were a trap shooting challenge dominated by old men shooting $4000 shotguns and never missing, a quick draw competition dominated by teenage girls moving just short of light speed, and a new event for our club. Steel.
I shot five stages, switching around pistols to find what I liked, burned up about 150 rounds, and had a ball.
The matches at the club are all 'fun shoot' this season to gauge interest. If it takes off, they'll join the PA steel shooting league and begin next season on the points run.
I know I'll try and make every club match I can, as it's just too much fun to miss.
