Steel Challenge is a speed shooting competition managed by the Steel Challenge Shooting Association, which is owned by the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA).

There are eight different stages in Steel Challenge that always remain the same regarding target size, distance, and spacing. The targets are white metal plates that may be round plates of 10 or 12 inches or 18×24-inch rectangles. They’re not falling plates. Scoring a hit requires nothing more than a bullet strike mark anywhere on the plate—even the edge. Each stage consists of five plates. Four are Option plates that may be shot in any order, while the fifth is the Stop plate that ends that string.

There are 13 different divisions including:


  • Open (OPN)
  • Limited (LTD)
  • Production (PROD)
  • Single Stack (SS)
  • Iron Sight Revolver (ISR)
  • Open Revolver (OSR)
  • Carry Optics (CO)
  • Rimfire Pistol Irons (RFPI) – no holster is needed
  • Rimfire Pistol Open (RFPO) – no holster is needed

Long guns

  • Rimfire Rifle Irons (RFRI)
  • Rimfire Rifle Open (RFRO)
  • Pistol Caliber Carbine Irons (PCCI)
  • Pistol Caliber Carbine Open (PCCO)
