Steel Shooting for competitive fun
« on: May 02, 2016, 02:06:10 pm »
To all my Arizona brethren, are there any steel shooting (not competition, just competitive fun) in the greater Arizona area?  I live in Florence and work in Tolleson, so I am all over the valley.

Thanks

    There's Tuesday Night Steel every Tuesday at Rio Salado (http://www.rsscaz.com/divisions/tns/) and Steel Challenge 3rd Sunday at Ben Avery (http://cactusmatch.com/index.php/match-desc), the Cactus Thursday night matches have a mix of paper and steel.

    Not sure how you're distinguishing between competition and "competitive fun", but if you're just looking for a good time they're all good matches and not high pressure competition or anything.

    I have ar500 steel and paper targets/stands as well as a shot timer if you want to setup a friendly competition course in florence some time. Always looking for like minded people to train with.

    Im ordering a few rubber dummies pretty soon too.

    Well I've seen the entry lists and times at Rio Salado, to me that's a little intimidating. Especially going in by myself.

    That's sounds awesome dude. I have a couple steel targets I welded up at work to use too. I'll PM you with my cell.

    Bro KV,
    Don't get intimidated. It's only as competitive as you want it to be. Rio Tuesday night steel is a lot of fun. I have gone 3 times.  (It's hour + drive, one way for me) I went by myself the first time. Just go try it out. Lots of friendly people that will show you the rips out there.

    If you're just going for fun (and it is fun) who cares where you place in the results.  From the site it says "First time participants are asked to attend a 30 min safety instruction class to explain the procedures of the match and cover safety concerns. New shooters will be escorted by an experienced club member through their first match." So I wouldn't worry about showing up by yourself and feeling lost or anything.  Lots of good people there to help you through your first match  :-)

    ^^^Agreed^^^

    You can even go there to watch other shooters if you wanted.
    Bullets are the only things that do their job only after they're fired.
