Texas Carbine Steel Match Reminder

Our monthly TC Steel match is Sunday, October 22nd, at Starry Gun Range. It will consist of five (5) original stages and it will only have STEEL targets. The round count is 85 with no misses and the match will be Pistol, Pistol Caliber Carbine, Shotgun and .22lr Rimfire friendly.

This month’s TC Steel match will honor our late friend Allen “Diesel” Rickets. As most of you know Allen was a “Bad Ass” with a pump shotgun, in honor of Diesel your Beloved Maytag is issuing a challenge to bring out your shotgun to this match. If you don’t have a shotgun or you are afraid you may still participate with anything except a center fire rifle caliber firearm. We will breakdown the shotguns into two classes Pump and Semi-Auto. Anything go as far as loading devices, sights, and mag capacity.

Registering in advance definitely helps with sign-up plus it allows us to email you quickly if anything changes. So, we would very much appreciate it if you would pre-register.

As always, the stages on match day may vary slightly from those you see online so please, read the hard copy stages closely on match day to avoid confusion and thanks in advance.

If you have questions, please see our FAQ Page and if the answer isn't there Email Us.

The weather forecast looks like it could be wet during the week and into the weekend with Sunday having a high of 82, heat index of 84 and 40% chance of rain. Ensure you bring plenty of water, sun screen and bug spray. Texas Carbine will have ice water on hand at the stages.

Again, as always, any help with set up on Saturday would be greatly appreciated and we take $5 off the match entry fee.

The stages will be posted shortly.
