Bowling Pin Shoot
August 24, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
What you’ll need:
- Pistol or revolver of your choice. Caliber must be 9mm or greater for semi-automatics and .38 special or greater for revolvers
- 100 – 150 rounds
- Brief qualification session with Bristlecone’s Chief Range Safety Officer (to determine skill level and whether or not a handicap is needed)
How the match works:
Bowling Pin matches are bracketed head-to-head double elimination competitions. There will be 2 brackets (winner and loser), with the main bracket consisting of 24 shooters. Skill levels of the shooters are determined prior to the match, and each participant will be given a color-coded card indicating their experience level and the number of pins they will be given to shoot during their assigned bracket. Green Card = Experienced Shooter (5 pins on the front row). Yellow Card = Intermediate Shooter (4 pins on the middle row). Red Card = Beginner Shooter (3 pins on the back row).
Pins are set on tables 7 yards from the firing line and each head-to-head match-up begins with an audible start. Shooters are required to wait at the firing line in the “high ready” position with their firearm safely pointed down range, safety on, and index finger outside the trigger guard until the start is signaled. The competitor that knocks all of their pins completely off the table first wins the bracket. Iron sights and optics are allowed. The winner moves to the winner bracket and the loser moves to the loser bracket, but can still compete until he/she has 2 losses.
