Not sure what a bowling pin match is…This class is for the 1st time bowling pin shooter who wants to learn about this game.  What does it take to knock a bowling pin off a table – FUN.


Understand how your firearms functions and safe condition

Understand range safety rules

Materials Provided by Students:

1) Eye protection: Prescription glasses or safety glasses. Eye protection must be worn 100% of the time in the range.

2) Hearing protection: Ear plugs and/or ear muffs. Hearing protection must be worn 100% of the time in the range.

3) Holster or gun case: We require guns to be brought to the line unloaded, and either holstered or in a gun case. We recommend traditional hip holsters. Cross-draw, small of the back, ankle holsters, and shoulder holsters are not permitted, as they make it very easy to “sweep” (point your gun at) other competitors or the Range Safety Officers. Inside the pants holsters are discouraged, as they slow down the re-holstering process.

4) 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, as it slows down the shooting procedure for other competitors. 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”

Minimum Caliber: 9mm
Maximum Caliber: .357 magum
