What is Tuesday Night Steel?

Tuesday Night Steel is an all steel match loosely based on the USPSA handbook. These are fast stages and will provide you with experience and skill development which you can apply in competition. You will shoot 4 stages, and it will take approx 1- 1.5 hours depending on the number of competitors. Round count is generally held to about 20 per stage, so there will be about 80 required hits to complete this match. Plan on bringing 120 rounds to account for misses, if you need to reshoot a stage, and to participate in an after match activity (skill challenge, shoot offs,…) as time allows.


There are 10 Divisions which you may compete in: Open, Limited, Limited Optics, Production, Carry Optics, Single Stack, Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC), 22LR Pistol, 22LR Rifle, Shotgun. Gear requirements (firearm, holster, magazines) and max rounds loaded in magazines are outlined in the USPSA rule book . 22LR Pistol will start at low ready. Shotgun and 22LR follow PCC rules.


Calibers allowed: .22LR, .380, 9mm, 40S&W, 45ACP, 20 gauge, 12 gauge

No steel core, slugs allowed


Scoring is time-based, with penalties of +3 seconds assessed for targets not engaged with the required number of hits or other procedural errors. Some procedural examples are: foot faults (not being in the correct Box when engaging targets), shooting targets out of sequence if the sequence is specified, shooting the wrong targets from a Box or position, failure to engage targets.

Physical Requirements

The match is moderately physical with standing, running forward, retreat, sitting, squatting, leaning, and prone positions sometimes required to view the targets. In most cases, you will draw your gun from the holster and will reload from the belt. Participants are challenged by many different stage design elements, with posted stage descriptions under each carport at every bay.

Upon arrival at the range

Please leave guns bagged until you get to the Safety Area located in each bay. There is no handling of the firearms except at the designated Safety Area or under the supervision of an RO in the bay. Do not holster your gun in the car. Have your safety rated eye protection on. You may also put on your belt, holster and magazines. Magazines may be handled anywhere on the range.

If this is your first TNS match, please plan on arriving 15min earlier so that you may receive a safety brief. After the safety brief, we will have you shoot with one of our TNS Ambassadors who will guide you through TNS.

We look forward to seeing you at the match!
