Steel Challenge shoots are a Fund Raiser for our Venture Crew and we were really hoping for a better turnout. Sadly our ranges were not packed, however, it was a great day for shooting. Quite frankly any day on the range is better than one in the office.
We had a few new faces that showed up and Welcome to you all. We would especially like to thank the shooters that returned a second time and brought friends with them. You are the the ones that help keep us motivated to continue to put these event on.
The day was cool but not cold, the wind was a little high at times but it was a sunny day.
We had plenty of time to visit an Very Short waits at each stage. In fact for the most part you just had to walk up and shoot. Because of the turn out we decided to run a special and let anyone that wanted to play another full 4 stages for only $5. $30 for two attempts at 4 stages. Heh, if you have got ammo we will facilitate a way for you to use it!
We made use of 4 of the Member ranges at the Boulder Rifle and Pistol club. Three of the 4 stages were the more difficult ones and our fourth one was the easy walk through Smoke and Hope. Many shooters commented that the small plates seemed to be easier to hit… Maybe a little better focus on the front sight? or possibly the large targets at a distance were dancing so much in the wind they were just not there when the bullet arrived. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it)
We will have the scores posted as soon as we can get them transferred to the computer.
Our next event will be a full 8-stage event we hope to see many of you there. The Boulder City Range is easy to get to and we have plenty of parking and shade structures.
