Shooting USA - The Steel Challenge 2012
The Steel Challenge is celebrating 31 years of world championship competition, and the popularity continues to grow. The question is simple, how fast can you draw and shoot five steel targets? The answer to the challenge gets more amazing every year.
The organizers advertise it as the World Speed Shooting Championships, but people in the shooting sports know it best as The Steel Challenge.
The match is managed by the Steel Challenge Shooting Association, now a division of the USPSA. All stages of fire have five steel plates as targets, with one designated as the stop plate, that must be shot last to stop the timer.

History’s Guns – The 1903 Springfield
The story of the '03 Springfield, initially a Mauser action design, with royalties paid, until the declaration of war with Germany. And the introduction of the new cartridge that would power the accuracy, the .30 Caliber adopted in 1906 – The 30-06.
3-Gun Stage Design
If you have ever shot a 3-gun course of fire, you might have thought about everything that goes into planning and then executing that construction. Well those who undertake the art are called Stage Designers and Andy Horner is one of the best, so we headed up to Rockcastle Shooting Center to see some of his process.

Pro Tip – USAMU Action Shooting Warm-up Drills
The Army calls it “matching your background”. To the rest of us, it’s camouflage. But there’s more to hiding than just dressing in camo. That’s what champion shooter and hunter, Sergeant Daniel Horner has in mind, with a Pro Tip on blending in.
