The Steel Challenge is friendly to all handgun, sight and action types. Shooters can participate in many different categories.

Centerfire categories shoot from a holster and include:   Open (optics), Limited (USPSA guidelines), Iron Sight Revolver, Optical Sight Revolver and Single Action

Rimfire shoots from "low ready" and includes:   Iron Sight Rimfire and Open Rimfire (optical sights)
(Note: A holster is not necessary for rimfire shooters, but a bag or case of some sort is needed to store the gun between stages)

The Steel Challenge organization has some additional specialty categories which we currently track including:
Law Enforcement, Military, Lady, Junior (-17), Senior (55-64) and Super Senior (65+)

We shoot 8 stages. Each stage has 5 steel targets and we shoot each stage 5 times (strings) except for "Outer Limits" which we shoot 4 strings.  That's a minimum of 195 rounds if you don't miss.  Make-up shots are allowed so the typical match is around 250 rounds.  It's preferable to have 5 magazines or speed loaders (or a good friend to reload magazines for you between strings) to save time.  We throw out the worst string and total up the rest to give a total time for the match.

The 8 Stages of Steel Challenge are:   5 To Go - Accelerator - Outer Limits - Pendulum - Roundabout - Showdown - Smoke & Hope - Speed Option 

Steel Challenge Rules can be found at the Steel Challenge website
