St. George, Utah – -(Ammoland.com)- The United States Practical Shooting Association and Action Target today announced that Action Target will again sponsor the World Speed Shooting Championships as the official target sponsor. This marks the third year in a row that Action Target has participated in the match as the official target sponsor.
“We are really excited to be a part of the new World Speed Shooting Championships” said Chad Burdette, Action Target’s Portable Sales Coordinator.
“Shooting Steel Challenge is a great way to get involved in the shooting sports but it is also a super fun and spectator friendly sport. It brings out beginners and pros and challenges everyone in between!”
The World Speed Shooting Championship follows the USPSA Steel Challenge rule set and consists of eight stages, each with five steel plates set in different arrangements. Competitors compete to hit all plates in the fastest cumulative time.
“We have really worked hard to bring a different experience to the World Speed Shooting Championships this year” said USPSA executive director Kim Williams.
“We have several fun side events, a new steel challenge stage that we’ll testing out and we are keeping the stages and side events close together so it’s easy to shoot both the main match and side events without a big hike. The practice bays will open the Monday prior to competition and will remain open throughout the match. We have had amazing sponsor support this year from companies like Action Target so every competitor is going to leave the match with some great prizes!”
“We really want to bring new shooters out to get a taste of competition” said USPSA President Phil Strader.
“That’s why this year, for the first time, if you are not a current USPSA member you will receive a one year USPSA membership when signing up for the match” he continued. USPSA will be discounting entries for brand new members by the price of an annual membership.
