Speed Steel

Speed Steel challenges the competitor to shoot accurately at maximum speed. Each stage requires firing at steel targets – typically five targets arranged in a pattern – with a designated stop plate that must be shot last. The competitors are timed, with the lowest cumulative time crowned the victor.

At Tri-County, there are various classes for competitors who can choose to fire centerfire handgun (Open, Limited) while drawing from a holster; rimfire handgun, shot from low ready; and rimfire and pistol-caliber carbine, also shot from low ready.
