Shooting USA - The Steel Nationals
Its five steel targets for a test of speed and accuracy at the US Steel Nationals. Plus, Comp-Tac at the range sponsoring the Texas State Championship. And the Dick Special is one of History’s Guns.
Its one part plinking and one part fast draw, with the accuracy test of five steel targets. It’s the challenge everybody understands and that’s bringing more and more people into the sport. In the case of the US Steel Nationals, it’s a record number of shooters in divisions for all kinds of guns.
There are divisions in steel shooting for almost any hand gun out there, and many of the top shooters compete in multiple divisions throughout the weekend. Names like Harrison, Eusebio, Michel, Norris, Sevigny and Coley are all threats to win the overall title with their open guns. And they will also battle for divisional titles with other platforms.
Shooting steel competition is all about the speed, and the fastest guns in the match are the open guns, regularly drawing to five shot strings of fire in well under two seconds. This is hand gun drag racing!
