Event description: The Range Austin is committed to safe shooting activities and education.
Metal Mania is an all “STEEL” monthly event. There will be stages specifically designed around steel targets. The benefits to shooting steel targets is the immediate feedback yo get when you strike the target. For safety, Metal Mania will be an all frangible ammunition event. The only authorized fragile ammunition will be available onsite the day of the event.
These monthly matches provide the opportunity to explore the fun and challenging sport of shooting. Shooters will have the opportunity to use their guns and supporting equipment in challenging courses of fire on steel targets.
Our goal, is for shooters to have the opportunity to progress in the following areas:
• Improve safe gun-handling skills and gun operations
• Test and evaluate marksmanship skills
• Test and evaluate equipment choices
Each event consists of stages designed to be practical, challenging, and of course fun! The event is open to any skill level, but shooters are expected to be safe and act professional. All shooting is conducted under the supervision of certified range safety officers using common range commands. Safety rules will be briefed prior to the event and strictly enforced.
