OC's Fastest Shooters Blast Away at World Championships

Burglars, peeping toms and other intruders would be advised to stay away from the Anaheim home of Joey Goodness, the Brea home of Bryan Brockway, the Irvine home of Steve Berry and the Seal Beach home of Glenn Seki.

The four are competing through Sunday at the world's fastest shooting competition. That's not shooting as in hoisting basketballs, banking billiard balls or quickly downing jiggers of hooch.

It's shooting as in bang-bang you're dead.

Actually, Piru, California, must be the safest place in America this
weekend as the fastest shooters in the world have gathered there once
again for the Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championships.

Or unsafest place should you happened to catch a stray bullet, one supposes.

Shooters are broken up into Women's, Pre-Teen, Junior, Senior, Super
Senior and Law Enforcement, and in several divisions such as Rimfire
Pistol, Rimfire Rifle, Shotgun, Single
Action Revolver, Revolver,
Stock Pistol and Open Pistol (which is apparently the “Formula-1”
category of shooting sports). Gunmen and -women pull their pieces from
holsters and fire, their reaction times clocked by an electronic
timer's buzzer.

It is estimated that 65,000 rounds of ammo
will have been fired by the time practices and competitions conclude
before Sunday's awards ceremony. That's a lot of hot lead. Find out
more stunning factoids here.

And consider yourself warned, stranger.
