Chicagoland's Premiere Sports Shooting Facility.

Aurora Sportsmen's Club Outlaw Steel Challenge


What is Outlaw Steel Challenge?

Outlaw Steel Challenge is like traditional steel challenge with a caveat; the goal of this outlaw format is to test your shooting ability rather than your ability to memorize patterns.

If you're starting with a rimfire/PCC rifle, or rimfire pistol, you will start at low ready. For centerfire pistols, you're start loaded and holstered with your hands in the surrender position. At the beep, you'll engage 5 steel targets in any order, with one steel target painted a different color indicating it's the stop plate, meaning the plate you shoot last after shooting the other 4. You'll repeat this a total of 5 times with your worst time thrown out and the other four used to calculate your stage time.

The matches typically consist of 5 stages setup one stage per bay. Each stage will have an array of 5 pieces of static steel with one piece of steel painted a different color to indicate that it’s the stop plate, which is the plate that you shoot last.
