    Who is up for a bowling pin shoot in Hinesville, GA tentatively scheduled for 24 May?

    UPDATE:

    I spoke with Josh Works today. The bowling pin shoot will take place on his family's outdoor range on Rye Patch Road. More updates on directions, the cost, prizes, etc.

    Basic pin shoot rules and guidelines

    All normal range safety rules apply.

    Distance: 25 feet

    Pin type: Five full size bowling pins for all calibers larger than .22 rim fire. Six inch Bowling pin tops for rim fire.

    Pin tables: 36" to 40" high. Eight feet wide, four feet deep. Typically four tables are required, but you can get by with only two.

    Pin spots: Pins are spotted 16 inches apart, twelve inches from the front edge of the table for pin tops, and for center fire calibers more powerful than .38 Special/9mm. Spots for 38 Special/9mm. and below are sixteen inches from the rear edge of the table.

    Format: Matches are head-to-head. The first shooter to get all five pins ON THE GROUND OR BERM wins the round. Pins knocked over must be shot off the table and onto the ground. Tie tables are shot over. Each round is two out of three to advance. Either single or double elimination can be used. If double elimination, the final round should be three out of five.

    Timing In: Each shooter shoots four tables, of five pins per table, individually timed. The shooter's three best times are added together, and the first round match-ups are determined by qualifying times.

    Start: Referee's commands are typically "Shooters to the line", "Load and make ready.", "Ready on the left", "Ready on the right", and "Standby." Shooter's start position can be either be with gun touching the table, if there is a table, or with the gun pointed down at a 45 degree angle. When the referee's timer horn blows, the shooters commence firing until the referee announces either "Winner on the Left", "Winner on the right", or "Tie table".

    Magazines: Rim fire shooters can load no more than ten rounds in their first clip. Center fire shooters can load no more than eight rounds I their first clip.

    Ammunition: Lower velocity center fire bullets can bounce back off of a bowling pin with devastating results, so full metal jacketed bullets are not allowed. Hollow points are OK.

    Classes: Rim fire optical sight, rim fire iron sight, revolver, semi-auto center fire are the basic classes, but you can split large caliber and smaller caliber center fire into two classes, or split center fire into two classes where if you win or place in the lower division a number of times, you move up to the advanced class.
