Report from the US Steel Nationals:

This past week, South River Gun Club hosted the 2018 US Steel Nationals.  This match is a great preview of what we'll see in June at the World Speed Shooting Championships in Talledega and attracted shooters from all over the nation (and the of my squads had four guys from Sweden who flew over for the week). 516 guns were entered, making it a huge event over 4 days.

I mostly officiated, which I've discovered is a great social activity, plus you get to learn a lot if you're a serious student of the game.  I did the math and figured that each day, I say "Are you ready?   Standby..." over 680 times per day.

The rise of steel shooting in America has been more that anyone could've envisioned when USPSA took over the series a few years ago.  Before the acquisition, one often had to travel a good ways to find a quality Level 1 steel match.  Here in metro Atlanta, we've had the Griffin Steel Match for some time, but outside of that, it was the match hosting by Team Swiss Cake Rolls that was the only other thing around (and that match has changed ownership several times over the last 10 years).

Now, you have Level 1's everywhere.  There are Level 2's in Alabama, South Carolina, and two in Georgia (one in Feb at Griffin, plus the upcoming Georgia SCSA Championship at StrongPoint).  We just had a Level 3 here last week, and then there's a Level IV (the WSSC in Talledega) right around the corner.

I learned a couple of lessons that I should've already known.  My biggest screwup of the week was ammo.  I initially thought that I wasn't going to get into Steel as much as I have.  I thought "My regular USPSA loads will be OK", but then I found that I was fighting recoil a lot during strings.  KC Eusebio gave me some of his 100 grain Steel Challenge ammo from Atlanta Arms.  It is a world of difference.  I will be doing some load development of my own now....

I also have to learn to settle down a bit and quit "trying".  When you try, you're not simply "executing", and at the speed that steel is shot, there isn't time to "try".  On each stage, I had one or two "hero" runs and the rest were "trash" runs.  When you shoot five runs on a stage and keep the best four, you have to be more on-your-game than "one or two hero runs".  Having to eat two or three bad runs will ruin your score.

Tax Time Reloading Specials:

Lots of folks make big purchases this time of year.  One of larger "capital" itmes that shooters buy is a reloading press.

I have recently gotten hooked up with a wholesaler who sells presses.  My dealer pricing is so good on these presses that I can offer them to you for a ridiculous price.  It doesn't matter whether you like blue presses, both flavors of red presses, or even the green ones, I can get them for a great price for you.

I am not going to run afoul of "Minimum Advertised Price" restrictions, but I will say this:  I just purchased my second "big press" by my favorite manufacturer.  I saved over $200 doing it this way rather than buying from the manufacturer's website.  (Those who know me know which brand and model I prefer.)  $200 is a lot of bullets to feed this thing....

E-mail me and let me know what you're looking for.  I'd bet that I can save you some money!!


Gun Cleaning Special:  Get the full-house, world-renowned CCGW cleaning job on your match guns, carry pieces, and hunting guns.  Most every gun will be only $25 each; complicated guns slightly higher.  (Glocks, M&Ps, 1911s/2011s, and the like are simple.  Benelli M-4s, piston-driven ARs, etc. are NOT.)  Turn-around time is typically less than a week.

We are offering complete basic guns built on our Camp Creek Gunworks-branded Lower Receivers, in addition to the full-house competition guns that we've always offered.  We're calling these mil-spec guns the "Basic Defense" series.  They feature a 16-inch barrel with A2 flash hider, a flat-top upper receiver, free-float handguard, collapsible stock, mil-spec trigger, mil-spec pistol grip, and the Magpul MOE trigger guard.  Add a soft case and 30-round MagPul magazine.  Of course, like all CCGW products, they're backed by our "We'll make it right" warranty.  The price is only $749 plus tax. 

Our latest thing has been PDWs (Personal Defense Weapons).  These are built off of our CR-15 lowers and feature short barrels (length depends on caliber and your desired features).  A pistol-stabilizing brace is added for greater accuracy potential.  5.56mm and .300 Blackout guns get the Noveske KX-5 suppressor.  9mm's don't need it.  An upgrade to a folding stock model is available for $300 more.  Prices start at $1500 for a basic model and go up to $3750 for the top-of-the-line model with EOTech HoloSight, TLR-2G light/laser combo, backup sights, premium SB Tactical brace, upgraded trigger, and custom fit case.

We have a 6-inch 2011 in-stock in .40 S&W.  It is built light, so it swings well from target to target.  The extra sight radius makes mid- and long-range shots EASY.  Only $2700

CCGW PCC's suitable for USPSA or 3-Gun competition are available.  Got one ready-to-go now for $950!

Glock 22C:  These are Blue Label Glocks (3 mags & night sights).  Brand new in the box for $499 plus tax.

Until next time, See you on the Range!!
