Default Rainbow Combat steel match questions

I've been to Rainbow before, watched their steel match an age ago.

Going to head there this weekend to compete for the first time.

I know its $10-

What else can I expect?
Sign in early at the club house at the top of the driveway?
Is it only 6 rounds per pistol stage total still? or is it 12 or 18?
Is it $20 to run it twice- regardless if same or different gun?
Whats the rifle stage like?
How many rifle rounds/magazines will I need?
Will I need to bring a sling or rifle magazine carrier?
Ammo restrictions? if shooting at close steel, I do have some Mk311 mod0

Lots of fun, especially the walk and draw!

Not needed, but make sure you're signed in at the tent and present before 0800 or you're out.

Is it only 6 rounds per pistol stage total still? or is it 12 or 18?

It's six rounds per stage (pistol, rifle, and shotty)

Is it $20 to run it twice- regardless if same or different gun?

I'm not sure on the price, as I do setup and am a member of the club

Whats the rifle stage like?

Rifle is six rounds on three targets. string one is one shot each then one shot each again from either standing, kneeling, sitting or prone. String two is double tap each target from a different position than the first string. Reloads are off the clock.

How many rifle rounds/magazines will I need?

Provided you only run the rifle course once, twelve rounds will be needed.

Will I need to bring a sling or rifle magazine carrier?

Sling is optional, but you will need a chamber flag (mandatory) and remember to carry muzzle up when taking rile from car to the rack.


Ammo restrictions? if shooting at close steel, I do have some Mk311 mod0

If it's magnetic in any way please leave it at home

I hope this helps.
