Dates Set For 2008 World Speed Shooting Championships

  Over 220 of the world's best competition pistol shooters from across America and overseas will compete for the World Speed Shooting Championships in the shooting sports' ultimate display of speed and accuracy at the 2008 Steel Challenge.
  The 2008 Steel Challenge is the premier shooting competition with professional shooters competing for over $300,000 in cash and prizes. The event is a three-day pistol shooting competition pitting the best shooters against eight courses of fire and the clock. Admission is free.

Courses of fire, or stages, are made up of five steel targets which are electronically timed to one one-hundredth of a second. Competitors shoot each stage five times with their slowest run eliminated. The combined time of the best runs is their score for that stage and their combined score of all eight stages is their match score.

Championships will be determined in the Women's, Pre-Teen, Junior, Senior, Super Senior and Law Enforcement divisions and in several categories including Rimfire, Shotgun, Single Action Revolver, Revolver, Stock Pistol and Open Pistol - the Formula 1 category of the shooting sports.

  The best shooters from around the world compete in the 2008 Steel Challenge at ranges in Piru, California, just north of Los Angeles, to determine the best of the best and to find out who is indeed the fastest gun in not just the West, but the world.

The Steel Challenge was established in 1981 by Mike Dalton and Mike Fichman to determine the world's fastest shooter. Since its inception, the Steel Challenge has seen competitors set new world records often only to see them fall moments later in the same match.
