Anyone know what this was and where to find it? I seem to remember following a link on a reloading web site. It was a video of a plate shoot which was rather informal, shots fired from seated position (I thought from lawn chairs),with handguns restricted to certain velocity/trajectory. The shooter called his target and waited for spotter to verify the target before shooting. The distance was less than 100 yards - perhaps 70 or 75 yards, maybe less. I don't remember that the shooting was against a clock, but perhaps it was. I thought the shooting was offhand, but bracing against the knee may have been permitted. Looked like a lot of fun with a somewhat relaxed format. Couldn't find it on Youtube, but maybe it wasn't there that I saw it.

Thanks, guys! I have reached the age at which I remember parts of things, but not always the complete thing. Concepts are more important than details. I know this is the event because of Lawn Steel in the title. I have a modest number of steel plates, and we have informal events from time to time. At my age, informal is best. I have passed this amusement on to my grandchildren, and they look to granddad to supply ammo, but they also are learning to reload. As it should be!


Tax dollars are the lifeblood of government. I'm thinking . . .
