How do I shoot steel?

Handguns do not require a holster. The starting position for handguns (both autopistols and revolvers) is "low ready" with elbows touching sides and muzzle at a 45 degree down position. The starting position for rifles is with rifle mounted but aiming at the ground. At the start signal, bring the gun up and hit the plates as fast as you can. There's usually a Stop plate that must be shot last, but the rest of the plates are "as you see them." The maximum possible time for a stage is 30 seconds, so if you run out of ammunition or have a jam or miss the stop plate that will be your score for the stage. Most handguns and rifles hold 10 rounds so making up a couple of misses won't run you dry.

"If you plan to leave early, please arrive early to help set up. If you arrive late, please stay late to help take down. If you plan to arrive late and leave early, please do your shooting someplace else."
