Ever get the feeling that's there's more to being a gun owner than going to the range and punching holes in a target?
Do you own a pistol, but don't really know how to use it?
Are you looking for a sport that the whole familiy can enjoy together?
Then practical shooting is the sport for you.
The easiest way to get into the fun and excitement is to shoot a Steel Challenge match, which requires no special equipment or gear. Anything from a .22 pistol to a 1911 in .45 ACP to a pistol caliber carbine can be used to shoot Steel Challenge, and the rules are simple and easy to understand. 
This two-hour course will set you up for the success at your first Steel Challenge match, and as added bonus, you'll receive a discount on your fee when you sign up for a match.
