Please mail your 2017 Shooters Registration to: Pin Shoot, P.O. Box 545, Central Lake, MI 49622

NEW THIS YEAR:  Rather than have the 5 pin in a nice straight line, they are going to be set on three levels.  Not only that, but there will be three separate patterns of pin sets.  Everyone will shoot the same course (i.e. set X, set Y and set Z a five minute pause to reload and the pinsetters to re-set the pins and then you shoot the same three sets again).  The best 5 runs of the 6 is your score with your worst time being used as a tie-breaker.  15-second is the maximum “worst” time on any given table.  8 rounds per gun to start, reloaded capacity is unlimited.

 

There will be two blue “innocent bystander” pins in each set.   But they will be at least 4-inches from any other pin.  You would have to be a really bad shot to hit any of them. A 5-second penalty will be added to your score if you shoot or tip over a hostage. I think this is really good practice in case heaven forbid you have to do this for real.

 

Time stops when your last pin hits the ground or the backstop.

 

ALL FEMALE SHOOTERS, IN ALL EVENTS, WILL RECEIVE AN AUTOMATIC 1 SECOND OFF THEIR TIME

 

STOCK GUN:  Any Semi-Automatic, unmodified handgun with no more than a 5-inch barrel; or a factory Revolver having no more than an 8 3/8-inch barrel length, weight no more than 56-ounces.  (Same as a 1911 style .45.) Mag-Na-Port type ports are allowed, but no heavy grips, wrist weights or pseudo type stocks, or arm braces, etc.  8 rounds per gun to start, reloaded capacity is unlimited.

 

PIN GUN:  Same as STOCK GUN except with no barrel length and weight no more than 64-ounces. 8 rounds per gun to start, reloaded capacity is unlimited.

 

SPACE GUN:  Same as PIN GUN and we also allow scopes and even lasers.  8 rounds per gun to start, reloaded capacity is unlimited.

 

CONCEALED CARRY:  3.5-inch maximum barrel, stock gun, 6 round max capacity, no modifications other than porting.  Reasonably normal sized replacement grips are allowed; bring your original grips in case El Supremo declares your grips are too big.  Everyone will start with “Guns on the rail”.

 

2-Person Team Event

Two people vs. 13 bowling pins plus two innocent bystanders.  Shot in sets of three runs, best single time wins. 8 rounds per gun to start, reloaded capacity is unlimited.  1-second off for each female shooter.  Switch team members if you must, but only 1 prize per shooter, per event.

 

3-Person Team Event

Two people with shotguns (cylinder bore only, no diverters allowed) and one with a STOCK handgun are facing 24 bowling pins on one table – no “innocent bystanders”.  Shot in sets of three runs, best single time wins.  8 rounds per gun to start, reloaded capacity is unlimited. 1-second off for each female shooter; 1-second off for each pump shotgun used.  Theoretically a 3-woman team using 2 pump shotguns would receive 5-seconds off.   Switch team members if you must, but only 1 prize per shooter, per event.

 

One person Shot Gun Event

8 pins stare you down.  You have 8 rounds in a semi-auto or pump action shot gun.  00 Buck, 000 Buck, or Slugs acceptable.  Iron sights only.  No “innocent bystanders”.  1 second off if using a pump / 1 second off for a female.

The Big Push

New!  You are facing only 3 bowling pins at a distance of 22 feet that must be knocked back a whopping 14.5 feet!  One handgun only, so bring your hand cannons, thunder sticks, and mega-magnums!  The winning caliber will most likely start with a .4 or .5 and end with magnum!

9 X 13 (Fast and Fun)

Using a 9mm or higher caliber handgun you are facing 13 pins and two “innocent bystanders”.  All you have to do is knock the pins over.  Magazine capacity is unlimited.  Stock guns only, no multiple projectile ammo allowed (shot).

To veteran Shooters – the new pin range is where the Practice Range used to be.  You will still enter the same way, there will be signs galore, continue on the ONE-WAY road through the woods.  Camping and parking areas will be clearly marked.  You will exit to Muckle Road by continuing straight through the property on the clearly marked ONE-WAY road.
