The Club
Our Matches


Texas Steel Competition ("TSC") is an independent, all-steel-target, "not for profit," pistol shooting club founded by Marisa Hogan and hosted by Match Director, Paul Delmas. The club holds two distinct pistol steel matches each month (the center fire or big bore, 38-45 cal., and the .22LR), both of which are more fully described on this website. All TSC matches are only $15, with special additional discounts available. There are no club fees. The stages are designed to promote safe shooting, familiarization with firearms and enjoyment of our sport, as well as improving speed and accuracy.  Shooters of all expertise are welcome, including new shooters. Our friendly seasoned shooters will be there to guide you through the beginnings of this exciting sport. Come see for yourself!


It is with regret that I must report the loss of one our long time shooters. Marisa Hogan of Bulverde, Texas passed away on or about January 18, 2018.

Marisa was a long time IPSC and USPSA shooter. She participated in many local, regional and international matches and was the founder of the “Texas Steel Match Competition” held  at the Cedar Ridge Shooting Range in Bulverde, running the club for many years until her health began declining several years ago. Known by many of her friends and competitors as a “Fiesty Italian”, she will be missed by the shooting community.

More details as they become available.

 Remember shooters...this is an all volunteer sport. Please email Paul at "(You can count on me)" the week of the match and let him know he can count on you. No committments to help setup = no match.

MATCH TIMES: NOTE COOLER WEATHER MATCH TIMES... Our match registration is at 9:00AM and hammer down on or about 9:45 AM, following a short informational briefing. If the temperature is below 40 degrees at 10 AM, the match will be cancelled. So, check this website on or before 10 AM for updates.

EQUIPMENT: Minimum number of rounds required is generally around 130, however, you better bring lots more unless you are perfect (150-200 recommended). You will need at least 5 magazines or more, especially for the .22 match. Hint: If you are short on magazines, you can have a buddy reload used magazines while you are shooting the next run, as long as it doesn't cause delays. You will need a proper holster/belt, magazine holders, shoes (no sandals), (ladies, no scooped tops)...ejected shells can be hot enough to stick to your skin, and don't forget to bring your firearm.

MATCH FEE: TSC match fees remain at  $15 for all matches. You are invited to attend our matches and support this non-profit club. Some clubs charge as much as $25 or more.  Your participation allows TSC to remain a non-profit club with the lowest match fee available. In addition, summer matches feature shaded canopy covers for protection and comfort from the sun, free cold bottled water, a variety of steel targets, early "Beat the heat" starting times, and mostly...a lot of fun! Come on out and see for yourself.  (click here for setup details)

MATCH CANCELLATIONS?  Texas weather is, well...Texas weather, so keep an eye out for TXIPSC email notices. Texas Steel does not hold matches when the temperature is below 40 degrees at START time, or when the range is muddy. Any changes or cancellations will be posted by 7AM the morning of the match. You are advised to keep an eye on this website and register for email notices at www.txipsc.net

REMINDER: Cedar Ridge Range Rules*** Shooters are prohibited from  handling firearms at their vehicle. Exchange of unloaded firearm from bag to holster must be at the SAFE TABLE to avoid DQ. Also, Cedar Ridge does not allow loaded magazines to be on your belt at the safe table.
