Son-in-law Caleb and I went to the range on Saturday to practice for the steel match on Sunday. He hasn’t shot pistol much. A lot of rifle shooting under his belt but hardly any pistol experience. He did okay on Sunday. There was a certain amount of symmetry in the results–he came in third from the bottom and I came in third from the top.
That placement isn’t really fair however. Two of the shooters that came in above Caleb were shooting a .22. Caleb was shooting full power .40 S&W loads.
I still have some work to do with him. He’ll get better. I’ll let Kim keep him for a while longer.
Here are some pictures from the match:

Caleb needs a few lessons on grip and posture
I didn’t realize it but Caleb took some pictures of me as I was leaving the same box as Mike above–mag change in progress as well.
Nice pictures! What sort of steel match was it, how many stages, and what were they like?
…. Mr. C.
The type of match is Steel Challenge. The stages results from last weekend are here. The last two stages were “field courses” with some movement involved to make things a little more interesting for people but aren’t Steel Challenge normal.
