BOULDER — The 2021 Semper Fi Steel Challenge occurred May 21st-22nd, 2021.

The annual shooting competition brings in 80 shooters to test their skills. In this year’s meet, the competition added a new bay to commemorate the newest military branch, the U.S. Space Force. There were seven bays in total, one for each military branch.

The Last Chance Handgunners club organizes the event to raise money for the Semper Fi Fund that provides immediate service to critically-wounded vets and more.

“My husband is also retired Air Force. It's a wonderful cause and it's amazing to be able to do something so fun and support such a good cause, so it's a great deal," says Karen Parker, a participant in the competition.

The Last Chance Handgunners expect to have raised $5,000 from this year’s event.
