Steel Challenge: West Tennessee Championship
Up next in the March 26th major match results is a level 2 Steel Challenge match in Tennessee. This match didn’t see a huge turnout, so the results will be broken down into Centerfire Pistol, PCC, and the Rimfire categories.

An interesting side note, Robert entered both PCC Irons and PCC Optics, won both, and beat himself to finish 1-2 in PCC overall.

Last but Not Least: Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun
Finally we close our weekend with one of the oldest and largest Outlaw 3-Gun Matches on the calendar, the venerable Superstition Mountain Mystery 3 Gun (SMM3G). This year, SMM3G offered the option of either a 2 gun division (no shotgun required) or the traditional 3 guns. Your overall winner is Nils Jonasson, who shot the 2 gun division. The 3-gun division overall champ is Kyle Litzie.
