These photos were taken at the November 1999 Wheel Burners club match. The course of fire involved 6 stages with a minimum of 129 rounds. Thanks to the inventiveness of Match Directors and stage designers each match is unique. These photos are merely intended to give you an idea of the type of shooting to be had at Wheel Burners matches.


Stage 1 (Plate Rack)

Start with hands above shoulder. Draw and knock down each of the five steel plates. Repeat 4 times.

Move to right of the wood and shoot the 3 left hand targets two rounds each using strong hand only. String two: repeat but shoot from right of the wood at left targets using both hands then move to left of the wood and shoot right targets using weak hand only.

STAGE 4 (More Damn Barrels)

Start with hands on barrel. Draw while moving to a barrel group of your choice and shoot each of the 3 targets behind with two rounds each. Continue until each of the five barrel groups has been engaged. (This shooter lost his footing but kept the muzzle pointed downrange, recovered and was allowed to continue).


STAGE 5 ( Swingin')

Start with hands on the nearby steel target. Push the steel target down, draw and in any order knock down one of the down range steel targets and shoot the 2 paper targets with two rounds each. The paper targets are mechanically activated by the falling of the pushed steel target to swing into view from behind the wood barrier and continue swinging.


Stage 6 (Fun House)

Start in the nearby box with hands at side. Draw while moving (staying outside the railing) to the 3 paper targets at right and shoot two times each. Move inside the railing and shoot the 3 paper targets visible through the door and the 3 paper targets visible through the port at right of door two times each in any order. Continue inside the rail to the 3 paper targets at left and shoot two times each.
