COSTS ::
$40 each gun/entry if you pre-register (NOT pre-PAID).
$60 each gun/entry if you do not pre-register.
RO's & vol's :: first entry FREE, additional entries $20 off.
$20 off for active military.
I don't want any money until October 17th, but to get the $40 rate, I need
to know you will be there. (Send an e-mail to:
[email protected] )

REGISTRATION INFORMATION I NEED FROM YOU :: ALL 6 THINGS, BY OCTOBER 1st.
Full name —
State of residence —
Division(s) entered —
Gun to be used – for each division —
Special Recognition categories — (Please state NO S.R. if none apply.)
RO/Volunteer — or Normal Entry —

I will figure up how much money you will need for entry fees on October
17th
, and send you a confirmation e-mail.

YOU CAN ENTER ANY NUMBER OF DIVISIONS — AS LONG AS THE HOLSTERING DOES NOT
CLASH.
The holster is the key to the whole second gun thing. If your second entry
is holster-less — GSSF, any (or all) of the .22 divisions, carbine, etc,
then you are all set. For that matter, if you shot, say, Revolver
Right-handed and Limited Left-handed — that would work from my perspective,
which is to keep the match moving. (I doubt that particular scenario would
happen, but if you are ambidextrous and want to try it, I am not going to
prohibit it.)

STAGES ::
8 stages. All SCSA.

ROUND COUNT ::
200 (well, 195) for a ‘clean’ match. Bring 300 to 400 per gun to have
plenty of ammo.

No magazine capacity limits. (And, you may load ’em up !!!)
Minimum of 5 magazines (or speed-loaders) per gun.

PRIZES ::
Plaques for winners of each Division, Smaller plaques for 2nd and 3rd in
some divisions.
There may be a prize for the overall lowest time of the match (ANY semi-auto
gun).
Special recognition plaques for :: Senior (55-64), Super Senior (65+),
Junior (17 and younger), Female, and Challenger. These will be determined
by relative finish WITHIN division. E.g. 3rd in a division of 10 = 0.3 and
2nd in a division of 4 = 0.5 — the 3rd place shooter is the winner of
special recognition.
Drawings for merchandise prizes will be administered by Jeff Brown. Each
entry will receive tickets ( # tbd ) that the shooter places in jars
corresponding to each prize. Random draw from the tickets placed in the
jars determines the winners. Merchandise prizes will NOT be awarded for
performance this year.

NOTE ::
ACC IS A COLD RANGE. DO NOT “GUN-UP” IN, OR AT, YOUR CAR — USE THE SAFE
AREAS, PREFERABLY WITH AN R.O., OR JUST WAIT UNTIL THE FIRST STAGE.
You can load magazines anywhere EXCEPT THE SAFE AREAS :: but DO NOT remove
your gun from its box or bag until you are on the line, ready to compete.
(Or you are at one of the SAFE AREAS, with an R.O. :: For example – if you
need to verify function, or clean something.)

I’ll be there as one of the ROs running a squad as well as trying for my first State Steel Championship – it should be a lot of fun, so don’t miss the match!

Please wait...
