In Part I, I talked about what steel shooting was and in Part II, I walked through and explained a match from Friday Night Steel. In this last part, I would like to highlight some other matches, both national and local, and some associations that hold matches that shoot steel.
National Steel Groups
- Steel Challenge Shooting Association: The SCSA is now a part of the USPSA. This is the National group for all things Steel Challenge. They also help sponsor the World Speed Shooting Championships. The SCSA has clubs and matches listed on the website, so you can find a local match near you.
- The International Steel Shooting Association: They promote steel shooting around the world, like how IPSC promotes Action pistol throughout the world.
- The international Metallic Silhouette Shooting Union: Again they promote Metallic Silhouette shooting around the world.
- NRA Silhouette Competitions: These are NRA sponsored Competitions with Silhouettes
- NSSF Rimfire Challenge: This used to be the Ruger Rimfire Challenge, but the NSSF has taken this over now.
- US Steel Shoot: This is the US National Steel Championship. This is a little different then the World Championship.
Groups that include Steel in their Matches
- Glock Sport Shooting Foundation: GSSF is not a steel exclusive club, but it does have stages that include steel. The GSSF is a national group that only Glock owners can participate in. They have the big outdoor matches and they have an indoor league that shoots paper.
- United States Practical Shooting Association: USPSA includes steel in a lot of their stages, using pepper poppers, texas stars and human silhouettes
- International Defensive Pistol Association: IDPA like USPSA and GSSF include some steel in their Matches
Local Ohio Matches to me
- Miami Rifle and Pistol Club: MRPC has a Steel Match every Second Saturday, Second Wednesday in the morning and last Wednesday in the evening every month.
- Miami Valley Shooting Grounds: MVSG has a steel match every Tuesday evening and Saturday Afternoon.
- Target World: Target World just finished a Falling Plate League and there is talk of another session.
- Greene County Fish and Game: They host an Informal Steel match and USPSA Junior Steel. Check their website and calendar for details.
If you know of more matches, both local to Ohio or national groups, that I missed, please feel free to comment and I will get them added. Thanks for reading this series. Hopefully you got a some great guidance from it.
