Are You Ready To Try Pin Shooting?

Chris and Mr. C., dead even in the revolver class.

If you've been thinking about joining in on the fun at a bowling pin shoot, Saturday, Mar. 29th at Central Whidbey Sportsman's Assn. range in Coupeville is the place to be on Saturday, March 29th. You want to be there at 9am. for signup. After signup each shooter will get to shoot four tables of five pins each against the clock. Your three best times are added together, and this total is used to match you up with someone of about the same speed in the first round. That way the new shooters get to shoot against other shooters of similar skill level. It's a single elimination format, with each matchup being two out of three with the winner advancing and the loser being magically transformed into a spectator!

We shoot a number of different classes:

Optic sight centerfire
Iron sight centerfire
Revolver (any sight)
Big bore Revolver (.429 bore minimum)
Optic sight rimfire
Iron sight Rimfire

Revolver shooters can shoot both in the revolver class and the centerfire class. The rimfire classes use 6" pin tops instead of full size pins. No FMJ bullets allowed, but plated (like Rainier) or jacket hollow points, or lead are all OK.

The shoots are small and fun, but it's a good idea to shoot several classes to get in plenty of shooting. Cash pay out for first and second place in all classes except rimfire and big bore, where the entry fee is less, but it only pays for 1st. place.

If you have any questions, leave a comment to this post, or drop me an email. The email address is at the top of the right sidebar just below the pin top shooting picture.

If you want to make a weekend of it, there are plenty of restaurants, B&B's, motels, and campgrounds available here on Whidbey Island.

Come on and give it a try. Even if you finish last, you still beat out every other shooter who didn't show up!!

My wife is flying back that day, but I think her flight does not land until 1700, so I might be able to join you. I'll drop you a note once I know more.
