As the press release notes, this match, sponsored by Taurus, featured top competitors vying for prizes and cash payouts. It included eight stages in the Steel Challenge Shooting Association (SCSA) format, with an added challenge as the shooters endured the heat and humidity. This inaugural championship is a precursor for Duff competing at the World Speed Shooting Championship in August.
“The Steel Challenge is one of my favorite disciplines to shoot. I love to share the sport with others and having some of my Taurus family join me to compete made this a memorable experience,” Duff said in a statement. “Having Taurus embrace the shooting sports is encouragement not only to myself, but to future competitors. As a first year event, match director, Matt Mitchell did an outstanding job recruiting over 100 participants to promote the shooting sports.”
