AGC Steel Challenge - Saturday 12 October

AGC's first full blown Steel Challenge match will be Saturday 12 October at 8:30am.

Registration is open on Practiscore, linky here: https://practiscore.com/associated-g...-2019/register

Space is limited to 40 guns so jump on that registration quickly. You can shoot two guns (pistol & PCC or two pistols) but each require a separate registration.

Four stages with some being very familiar to regular steel challenge shooters and we are also throwing in a twist on the last stage. If you clean all the stages you will shoot at least 121 rounds so the suggested amount of ammo to bring would be 175 - 200rds.

Match fees are $10 for AGC badge holders and $15 for all others.

Katie has prior commitments that day but I'm going to try to go. I won't know if I have to work that weekend until it gets a little closer though I guess I'll have to take my chances that it doesn't fill up too fast.

Besides the obvious (eye & ear protection) a holster with a good gun belt and a mag holster, there is one stage where you will have to reload on the clock.

So what happens if you might be new to steel challenge and don't have a competition holster, belt and mag holster? Come on out anyway, instead of drawing from a holster you can start at the low ready position and you can carry that extra mag in a back pocket.

As far as holster certification required someone from the action shooting committee can correct me but I don't believe so since you are going to be under the direct supervision of an RSO. Plus it would be a little tough to get non badge holders back if they had to go through the holster cert process before a match.

I did the 3-gun match yesterday and I am "the public" with no certification. This steel challenge is likewise open to the public and you will be given a safety briefing, with instructions and put you under the supervision of a safety officer so you can draw from a holster. I am speaking without authorization of the AGC, but I'm 99.975% confident of my blather.

I suspect if you are not at a scheduled event, under supervision of an RSO, you will still need the certification.

You are correct - Quoted from the "Action Shooting Policy" , page 69 of the Policies and Procedures Manual -

3. Event Director or designee(s) may allow holster use for all shooters in their event only, or make other accommodations (e.g. low ready, from table or box) as they deem safe.

How does that work? Do you shoot both in the same squad, on the fly? Or is this an AM/PM type thing?

EDIT: Looking at practiscore, I see that in the existing squadding, the same names show up twice, so I guess I've answered my own question.

Ever heard of dual wield like a boss?


Just kidding of course. Typically you would shoot your pistol and then run the stage again with your carbine. Or vice versa.

For the purpose of PCC, is an AR9 with an 8" barrel and brace a PCC? Or say, MP5 with brace? Or does a PCC need to be a rifle per the ATF, or what?

Optics rules?
