      What is the most practical gun to use on Steel Challanges???

      I am completely new to competition shooting. Been shooting for years (24 yrs retired Army(of which 10 yrs in the Marines)), hunter and lately target shooting. Tired of punching holes.

      I own a .357 SW 586, a Browning buck mark, and some single action.22s, a SW 442, blk pwdr .45 pistol, and the excess long guns as my wife puts it.....

      I am planning to try to shoot at a steel challenge range outside Ft Leonard Wood, MO. I am planning to take my 357 and Browning.

      I am just curious as to what most of you competitive shooters consider as a decent standard non-customized weapon for a complete newbie? I would prefer to review your suggestions as to hear from competitors at the range espouse what I have to have.

      This is just for local shooting for me as I am totally retired now, dropped totally out of competitive bass fishing and have no aspirations to go beyond local shooting.

      Thank you in advance. Ole Ed

      You can use most anything you wish. In the stock divison I seen a lot of Glocks and S&W- M&P's. Here's a link that might help you to get started. The local club here has a shoot once a month that is open for everybody.

      Thank you "Baldy"

      I didn't know where to go to get the info. I just hate to go cold into something new. Knowing the rules is the way to go. Again, Thank you.

      I went to my first one about 3 weeks ago. I even borrowed one of the club member's .22 Ruger w/red dot sight because I didn't have a holster nor enough mags for my Sig P226 9mm. It was fun. When I go next time I will use my 9mm.
      I also plan on participating in the other competitions, not sure what they are called. I am 57 and nearing retirement myself. Punching paper is good practice but I want to improve my reaction time.
      Have fun.
