    Hello people, this is my first post here, so I want to say hello. My name is A.T. Barr, I'm a member of the Blue Grass Sportsman League in Wilmore, KY. I'm also their unofficial match announcer. One of our members asked me why I was not posting the match announcements on Glocktalk.com. So here I am. If you have any questions, please post here or email me at atbarr@windstream.net.

    The Blue Grass Sportsman League http://www.bgslinc.com/index.php is having their monthly Steel Showdown match at BGSL, Wilmore, KY January 9th. This is similar to 'Steel Challenge', but right now our bays are not long enough to be associated with the 'Steel Challenge'. We are working on that.

    Steel Showdown is an action pistol match that requires the competitor to hit 5 or less Static steel targets. Most stages specify a specific steel target to be shot last (Stop Plate) This format is friendly to all skill levels and is a great event to introduce new shooters to action pistol event.

    Set up 8:30 , Registration Starts at 9:00, New Shooter Check out 9:30, Match starts at 10:00.

    **** New Shooters - (i.e. Any Shooter who has not had a new shooter check out at a BGSL Pistol Event) must attend a new shooters check out or they will not be able to shoot.

    Cost: BGSL member $10, Non- Members $15 – Second Gun $5 (Juniors - $5 with paying parent) **Junior 16 or younger

    Equipment: Any safe centerfire pistol / revolver .355 (9mm) or above or Rim-Fire (.22 ) We recommend a minimum of 3 magazines – 5 being better for magazine holding 10 rds. or less. Holsters must be a strong side and cover the trigger when the pistol is holstered **Rim-Fire pistols may start at a low ready but must be bagged at the completion of each stage. Eye and hearing protection is required for shooters and spectators. Ammo – a typical match would require 100 – this is with no misses – BRING EXTRA. We will offer a second relay for shooters who which to shoot the match a second time. (Same pistol or different)

    If you are a member you will need to use your gate card to open the gate.

    If you are not a BGSL member, simply use the key pad at the gate to call the number displayed on the sign for Pistol (006) and whoever has the Pistol phone will use it to remotely open the gate after you state that you are there for the Steel Showdown match.

    The Pistol phone will be answered from 8:45 AM until 10:00 AM on Saturday the 9th.


    Yes we will have the match. Yes it will be very cold, so wear layers!

    We welcome new shooters and spectators.

    Don't forget we are having a Major USPSA match on March 19/20 as well, see this link for details....
