A friend of mine has a range fairly close (badlands bar 3, if y’all wanna google it).
After this weekend’s r3gular CAS match, he has a little informal pistol caliber carbine steel match planned. He is testing the waters wrt participation. I think it’ll be fun. Plus I just got my 1/2x36 piston for my Octane so I’ll really get to hear the Steel (and the misses).

Sounds like fun! I've been shooting the PCC division at my local USPSA matches and have really enjoyed it.
I tried it once with my Osprey 45 suppressor and the shot timer couldn't pick up the report of my AR9! Had to remove the suppressor unfortunately.
Also, don't forget the fixed barrel adapter before threading on that Octane.

Yeah, some shot timers are having a hard time picking up unsuppressed shots when people are using low-powered loads (~125 PF) with 16" barrels. I don't think you're going to be able to get an accurate time with the suppressor on.
Overheard at an actual match:
"Tapers! Come on, guys, we need tapers!"
"No, my name's Gonzales."
It was a blast, even though I only shot about 1/2 of it due to my Milsport 9mm laying down on me (see my thread in Mason’s Rifle Room).
They plan on making this a regular thing. This weekend was just a “hey, how do y’all like this?” kind of deal.
And yes, the shot timer had a hard time picking up my shots, but it was worth it to be able to hear the action work and the steel ring.
I still have the theme music from SWAT playing in my head.
