All firearms must be in hard or soft cases or gun rugs when brought to the designated shooting area and must be in hard or soft cases or gun rugs when removed from the designated shooting area. No holsters are allowed.

Open: Any firearms with scopes, optical sights, light gathering scopes, battery powered optics or lasers, compensators, or muzzle brakes.

Limited: Guns with iron sights. Adjustable sights and fiber optics are allowed. No electronic sights or optics are allowed, no compensators, muzzle brakes, or barrel weight allowed.

Ammunition: Standard velocity, 9mm/38 or larger. No magnum, or high velocity such as 357 Sig, 5.7. ( Match Director has call on loads that damage targets.)

Format: Each stage consists of five (5), hereafter referred to as plates, that are shot five (5) times, each of the five times is referred to as a String of Fire or String. One (1) plate will be designated the Stop Plate. Each of the standard targets must be hit at least once before hitting the stop plate, and the time stops when the stop plate is hit.

Participants may fire as many rounds as they deem necessary or until the firearm is empty for each string of fire. Max 11 rounds

Scoring: The worst string on each stage will be thrown out, and the total of the four (4) remaining times will be participant’s score for that stage.

Penalties: Each missed target will incur a 2-second penalty.

Failure to finish the course of fire during a string or not hitting the Stop Plate results in a 30-second penalty time (total time) for that string.

The maximum score for any string is 30 seconds, no matter how many misses or penalties may have been accrued during the string.

Targets & magazines: All targets will be steel plates. Various sizes for different stages. Stages of fire will be set up in accordance with Steel Challenge Shooting Association rules. These can be viewed at the SCSA competition website. The same stage will be fired at with both pistols and PCC.

All magazines will be loaded with 10 rounds maximum. Participants using self-loading rifles and/or pistols may start with a round in the chamber. This allows the participant to start with a maximum of 11 rounds in the firearm. A participant may use high- capacity magazines in jurisdictions where they are allowed, but if more than 11 rounds are fired on a string then the participant will be scored 30 seconds for that string.

Open and Limited Pistol and Rifle shooters are encouraged to have at least five (5) magazines for each gun to keep the stage from getting bogged down on loading magazines.

Tubular magazines may be loaded to maximum, but if more than 11 rounds are fired on a string then the participant will be scored 30 seconds for that string.

Starting Position: Handgun participant will start with handgun in hand(s) ready to fire with the safety disengaged, aiming at the designated object (orange cone, start sign) 10 feet down range. Participant must keep fingers visibly outside the trigger guard until the start signal.

Rifle Participant will start with rifle in hand(s) ready to fire with the safety disengaged, aiming at a designated object (orange cone, start sign) 10 feet down range. Participant must keep finger visibly outside the trigger guard until the start signal.

Match procedure: This is a timed event. Time will begin at an audible signal from the timer preceded by the verbal commands “READY” and “STAND BY”. Time will stop at the last shot fired.
