    SO!!! you think you can shoot 'eh

    ya, well if you think your so good, go to a "Steel" competition

    I have been shooting IPSC for years at my Club, but just recently joined USPSA.

    I went to my first "steel challenge" yesterday and discovered I ain't shabby. BUT!!! there were quite a few guy there that were wasting a LOT OF AMMO.

    One guy showed up with 200 rounds for a 125 round match and he ran out of ammo at 3 stages.

    I brought 300 rounds and had 50 left, but I gave 100 rounds away so some guys good finish the match

    Bottom line: if you want to be fast and accurate, I would strongly suggest you take up a steel challenge match...........

    besides, it a lot of fun

    I love the sound. PING!
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Steel challenge is amazing in the amount of speed and accuracy that shows up. Especially when you practice for it. 5 shots from a draw, 5 hits on different targets at different distances, and usually in under 2-3 seconds ain't shabby in anyone's book.

    I want to shoot Steel so bad... but I gotta get me a 1911 first.

    I use a customized Para P40-16 (40cal, 'Limited') with four 20 round Mags and three 18 round mags.

    Yesterday we shot 5 stages with 5 strings in each stage.

    It was soooo much fun. There were a couple of guys with H&K 40cal and a couple with Glocks, some were shooting 9mm, 38 super, 40 and 45cal.

    But most of the 40+ shooters were using race guns. I have trouble keeping up with those guys

    Yes, Dawson Base pads and followers, with ISMI springs. It's a very nice set up.

    I ordered four, new "Hi-Cap" mag tubes from Para, but they can't ship to NY

    so I had "others" order the mags for me and mail them to me

    I love the Dawson Base pads, easy on and off and they add 2 extra rounds, which it turns out, comes in very handy during certain USPSA shoots
