Competition Groups

USPSA

The United States Practical Shooting Association handgun competitions at Magnolia RPC  require competitors to solve dynamic shooting challenges while seeking a balance of speed, power, and accuracy. Competitors move through unique courses of fire as quickly as possible while engaging a variety of paper, steel, and moving/reactive targets. There are divisions and classifications within them to accommodate competitors of all different skill levels shooting a wide variety of equipment. No special gear or training is required to get started and new shooters are always welcome.

Outlaw Steel

Outlaw Steel is a speed competition using components of Steel challenge, but with stages of our own design, more movement and some stages having more than five steel targets. We typically run five times while standing in a shooting in a shooting box or requiring some movement within a shooting area, with the slowest run dropped. Each stage consists of two to four steel targets, which add time if hit. With each run one or more  hit(s) per target is required. With an unlimited number of rounds. The primary targets must be shot first, then the Stop Plate to stop the timer. Each Primary target missed after shooting the Stop Plate, will add a three second penalty to the competitors run time. The maximum time permitted for a run is 30 seconds and a competitor will be stopped and asked to reload if they reach the 30 second limit. We usually have one stage that is referred to as a Field Course. It has upwards of 25 or more Primary targets and a marked Stop Plate. This stage requires a fair amount of movement and is only run once. Some of the targets are static, some fall over when hit and others move, then fall when hit (Texas Star, Polish Plate Rack, Irish Plate Rack, etc.) The Primary targets must be shot first, then the Stop plate to stop the timer. Each Primary target missed after shooting the Stop Plate, will add a three second penalty to the competitors run time. Several times a year we hold a Carry Gun match, with five stages. The stages consist of five steel targets at close range. Each stage is run five times while standing in a shooting box, with the slowest run dropped. For each run, only five rounds can be fired. The matches are designed for, but not limited to, carry guns. Outlaw Steel may be more challenging physically than the Steel challenge as there are generally one or two stages with movement(Running is not required). Check in for a match closes promptly at 8am and matches are generally completed around noon.

Steel Challenge

Steel challenge is a speed shooting competition governed by the Steel Challenge Shooting Association(SCSA) that consists of eight standardized stages, each with five steel targets, ranging in size from 10″(25cm) round plates to 18×24″ (45×60 cm) 18×24″(45×60) square plates. Competitors are scored solely by the time it takes them to complete each stage. We typically run five of the eight standardized stages per match, rotating through the eight, so the next match will include the three stages we did not shoot in the previous match. All but one of the standardized stages are run five times while standing in a shooting box, with the slowest run dropped. One of the standardized stages is only run four times and requires minimal movement, with the slowest run dropped. The counting run times are added together, giving the competitors stage score. All stage scores are then added together, giving the competitors match score. Each stage consists of four Primary targets and a marked Stop Plate target. For each run, one hit per target is required, with an unlimited number of rounds. The primary targets must be shot first, then the Stop Plate to stop the timer. Each Primary target missed after shooting the Stop Plate, will add a three second penalty to the competitors run time. The maximum time permitted for a run is 30 seconds and a competitor will be stopped and asked to reload if they reach the 30 second limit. Steel Challenge is an excellent sport for the younger or new shooters and those with conditions that hinder their movement. Check in for a match closes promptly at 8am and matches are generally completed around noon.
