Steel Challenge on Outdoor Channel Today

Michael Bane’s Shooting Gallery broadcasts highlights from the 2007 Steel Challenge today on the Outdoor Channel. The Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championships were founded in 1981 with 70 shooters competing for $20,000 in cash and prizes that first year. In the 26 years since, the match has grown to become one of the crown jewels of the shooting circuit and the premier professional pistol competition with more than 220 of the world’s fastest shooters competing for over $390,000 in cash and prizes in 2007. The 2007 event featured the Outdoor Channel/Sig Sauer 80-Second Challenge. The first shooter to break 80 seconds overall time on the 8-stage Steel Challenge course, the equivalent of the 4-minute mile, could take home a check for $30,000. The show airs April 16, 2008 at 8:00 pm Eastern time on the Outdoor Channel.
