The Pima Pistol Club hosts a monthly Steel Challenge match. Competition shooters,

beginning shooters and families are all welcome to participate. Don’t be intimidated if you’ve never competed in a shooting match before. The Steel Challenge is a great and fun way to start. Most are hooked when they hear their first clang of the steel!

You can shoot almost any type of handgun (semi‐auto or revolver) or rifle as long as it’s chambered in .22 or (long rifle) or a centerfire pistol caliber. Competitors shooting centerfire pistols are required to draw from a strong‐side holster (no shoulder, cross‐draw, behind the back, fanny pack, etc. holsters allowed). .22 lr pistols, .22 lr carbines and centerfire pistol caliber carbines will start from the “low ready” position. Optics such as red dot sights or scopes are allowed on any gun. Absolutely no guns chambered for rifle rounds are allowed.

An Intro to Steel Challenge class will be held followed by live fire on the range. The classroom portion will provide an understanding of a Steel Challenge match and answer any questions you may have. The live fire will give you an opportunity to actually shoot part of a Steel Challenge match. Trained and experienced range officers will assist you during the live fire portion.  

Attendees MUST attend the classroom session in order to participate in the live fire. Absolutely no loaded guns are allowed on club property except on the firing ranges ONLY when under the command of a trained range officer (you can unload guns at the “red safe area” located immediately to your right as you pass the gated entrance to the club). No guns allowed in the classroom.
