Bring the centerfire handgun of your choice. Must have a safe and secure holster. Drawing will be held for opponents. Match manager will create a competitor tree to track the progress (dry erase board for all to see - exciting).
Man on man, double elimination. You have to lose twice to be eliminated. A five dollar match fee will be collected from each shooter and then placed in a "pot". At the end of the match - 10% of the pot will go to the club, 20% will go to the second place shooter, and 70% will go to the first place shooter.
After drawing an opponent, the two shooters will come to the line, and on the command of the RO, load and make ready. The start position will be finger tips on temples. Upon the start signal, each shooter will draw and engage four plates and lastly, a pepper popper. The poppers are in the center between the two shooters angled to overlap. The popper on the bottom wins. Shooters will unload, show clear, hammer down, re-holster, and then leave the firing line.
Steel is at 10 yards - eye and ear protection required for all shooters and spectators. A test run indicated that you will get fragged.
All shooters will be drawn and shooting will start by 1:00 PM.
Hey Dan, I had some comments about running multiple guns and rigs from a single competitor ?.....yea or nay
One man - one gun.
Multiple entries by a single shooter would give said shooter an unfair advantage. In effect, they would be conducting in-match practicing. Said shooter would have a "throw away" score or two if they were so inclined.
Y'all know how this ran in the old days. These guys are obsessing over driving all the way up to Crooked Oak and then getting eliminated after two magazines of shooting. Seldom did it work out that way. As a matter of fact, I recall folks failing to bring enough ammo. It's their call to come try it or not - it is what it is - a very simple game. If we did have 20 shooters, it would take two or three hours to get to the last man standing. Half a dozen would be finished in an hour.
I would like for this match to be as clean and quick as possible. Of course, a large turnout would be exciting.

Due to a family matter and after conferring with TA, I am moving the Steel Match from Sunday the Oct. 5th to Sunday the Oct. 12th. Once again, the Man-on-Man Steel Match has been moved from the first Sunday in October to the second Sunday in October.

There have been questions about holsters. As I stated, any safe and secure holster is fine. That includes speed rigs as long as they will pass the jump test. What is the jump test? Do this: Holster up, stand flat footed, then take a hop in which both of your feet completely leave the ground. If your pistol or revolver does not shift, you are good to go. I plan on using my old IPSC/USPSA speed rig. This is not an IDPA match in any way, shape, or form.

The first "Pdog to Pepper Popper Match" was a success. Nine shooters gunned up to go head to head. The last two men standing were Mark Golson and Thomas Reed. Mark finally edged out Thomas for the victory and the first place prize money. Here are some videos of today's shooting:
