Outlaw Steel is a speed shooting competition shot from a stationary position at five static steel plates per stage, ranging in size from 10″ round plates to 18×24″ square plates. Outlaw Steel is primarily a pistol and revolver game, but rimfire rifles and pistol-caliber carbines are also allowed, making it ideal for young and new shooters.

Outlaw Steel scoring is simple: Your time is your score. There are five plate targets, with four being primary plates and the fifth being the ‘stop plate’. Each of the primary plates must be hit at least once during each string of fire, followed by the stop plate, which must be hit last to stop the time. Competitors may fire as many rounds as they deem necessary for each string of fire. The best four out of five strings will be counted as the total score for each stage. The total score for all stages will determine the order of finish for final standings.

Each stage is unique in its design and offers a different challenge to the shooter. All courses of fire are shot from a single shooting box. We will have 4 to 6 different stages set up for this match depending on how many volunteers come out to help set-up and tear down.

There is no need for specialized equipment; shoot whatever you have. If shooting a center fire pistol or revolver, the start position is gun holstered, so you’ll need a holster that allows a safe draw. Rimfire shooters start from a low-ready position, so no holster is needed. It’s helpful to have enough magazines to reduce reloading time between strings and keep the match moving along. And, of course, appropriate eye and ear protection is always required while on the range.

Rimfire firearms (rifles and pistols) are to be chambered in .22 caliber only, while centerfire handguns must be chambered in the minimum caliber of .38 Special (9mm). All rounds must travel at a minimum of 750fps. Multiple-projectile and Magnum loads are not permitted.

Steel shooting offers a port of entry to the pistol shooting sports and is an excellent starting place for young or beginner shooters. Regardless of your shooting background or skill level, all shooters walk away smiling after shooting Outlaw Steel matches. This competition provides a level playing field for shooters of all backgrounds.

We encourage you to bring new shooters, inexperienced shooters, young shooters, spouses, children, or any other interested persons regardless of their skill, ability, or equipment.  We will make every effort to accommodate anyone who wants to try this exciting shooting sport as long as they can shoot safely.
