Bowling Pins

Bowling Pin Shoots have been a fun and challenging event for many over the years. Here at SafeFire, we are doing our own version. Our matches are a double elimination format that are sure to make things interesting!

This Competition is a suggested Level 3 (don't know, click here).
To prepare for this competition, we recommend you take: Handgun Proficency

REQUIREMENTS & PROTOCOL:

-Eye protection: Prescription glasses or safety glasses must be worn at all times. 
-Hearing protection: Ear plugs and/or ear muffs must be worn at all times. 
-Guns in cases: We require guns to be brought to the line unloaded and in a case. you will start from a low ready position.
-Ammo allowed: Due to the match being inside and to make sure each competitor is safe, we require that you only use frangible ammo (we have polycase here in the store), hollow point, lead tipped, or full lead bullets. Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) is not allowed because those bullets have a very high chance of bouncing back off a bowling pin.

-Magazines or speed loaders: 3 magazines or speedloaders are the minimum requirement, 5 are recommended. We do not allow shooters to load magazines or speedloaders at the shooting line during competition. Please have them loaded beforehand.
Note: If both competitors run out of ammo, the competition will be declared a draw, and the next competitor in the bracket will receive a “bye”.
- All safety rules must be followed: Failure to follow SafeFire's Bowling Pin Shooting safety rules or general SafeFire's range rules can result in an immediate disqualification from the match. (examples: accidental discharge, failure to control your gun, finger on the trigger before the start signal, and going in front of the firing line.)
-Shooters meeting: Following check-in times above. There will be a brief shooter’s meeting to review the rules and answer questions before each match.
-Load your magazines / speed loaders before it’s your turn to shoot. Making sure that your pistol magazines or speed loaders are loaded before it’s your turn to shoot. This improves the flow of our match. Loading of magazines and speedloaders is not allowed at the firing line.
-Pin setup: For minor calibers (9 & 38spl.) pins will be placed on the back part of the table with 15" apart from the next pin. For major calibers, pins will be placed on the front part of the table with 15" apart from the next pin.

On the line commands:

• “Make ready”. The RSO is instructing you that you may remove your gun from your  case and load your gun. When your gun is loaded you should assume the low ready stance. We allow two types of the low ready stance. Either the gun must be pointed down at a 45 Degree angle, muzzle touching table, or you may use the compressed low ready stance with both elbows touching your sides, and the gun held at a 90 degree angle from the shooter’s body.

• “Shooters ready?” The RSO is asking you if you ready to shoot. You do not need to answer that you are ready. Unless you answer, “No”, the RSO will continue.

• “Standby” The RSO is informing you that he is about to blow the start whistle.

• “Beep!” At the sound of the whistle, the competitor may safely raise their gun and engage the targets. The winner is the first person to get all of their pins to touch the ground.

• “STOP!” Any RSO may issue this command at any time during the course of fire. The competitor must immediately cease firing, and wait for further instructions from the RSO.

• “Unload and show clear” The RSO is instructing you to show that your gun is unloaded. Please present your gun to the RSO with the muzzle pointed downrange, magazine removed, slide locked back or held open, and the chamber empty. Revolvers must be presented with the cylinder swung out and empty.

• “Dryfire cleared weapon” While continuing to point the handgun safely downrange, the competitor must perform a final safety check of the handgun as follows:

          Auto-loaders: Release the slide and pull the trigger, without touching the hammer, if any.
          The gun MUST dry fire before the competitor can leave the firing line.
          Revolvers: Close the empty cylinder.

If the gun proves to be clear, the competitor must case the gun.

If the gun does not prove to be clear, the RSO will resume the commands from “Unload and show clear” and the competitor will be disqualified for a negligent discharge
