Steel Shooting Match

Please join the Texas Concealed Handgun Association (TCHA) as we host a Steel & More Fun Shoot on Oct 14, 2017 in the Bastrop, Texas area. This event is geared for the everyday shooter.  Check-in will be from 8:00 to 9:15 am, with the first shooter starting at 9:45 am. The event will be timed and scoring will be simple. There will be a specific number of rounds allowed per participant and the scoring will be based on the number of hits within the allotted time. Participant will shoot two rounds for a combined total of hits in order to determine the winner. We will have a Shoot - Off Round for tie scores.

You will need a reliable, modern semi-automatic pistol or revolver chambered either in .380, .38, .357, .9mm, .40 or .45 (tiny pocket pistols, antique or cheap surplus pistols, such as Makarovs, are not suitable for this event). If you have questions about a particular pistol, please call (866) 516-5117.


You will need to have at least 150 rounds of ammunition. Factory ammunition is preferred but high quality reloaded ammunition is acceptable if you loaded it. Do not bring reloaded ammunition loaded by someone else as there is no way to assure safety and quality. It is recommended that revolver shooters have at least one or two speed loaders and semi-auto pistol shooters are encouraged to bring additional magazines as there will be (8) stations.

Please have Billed Caps, Long Pants, No Tank Tops or Muscle Shirts (Hot Brass) and suitable closed toed footwear for the range. 

A trophy will be awarded to the top shot. The shoot will be held at the UPTEX SHOOTING RANGE, 1436 FM2571, Smithville, TX 78957. The web address is for directions. The entrance fee is $35.00, which includes the range fee.

The event is limited to the first thirty-five shooters that register by either online at  or by calling Texas Straight Shooters at 512-649-6000. To register with the Association call TCHA Headquarters at 866-516-5117.
