    Shooter vs. Shooter “Bowling Pin” style pistol competition

    Double elimination tournament with a cash prize for the top 3 finishers! All Skill levels welcomed!

    How it works:
    Two shooters come to the firing line where they will have a table in front of them. They will be instructed by the Range Officer to load their firearms and make ready (chamber a round). The starting position is low ready with the muzzle touching the table and finger off the trigger, outside of the trigger guard. At the signal, the shooters will raise their firearms and engage 7 targets. The targets will be foot-long wooden 2x4s on a wooden stand with last target being a wooden 2x4 popper. The first shooter to knock all their targets off their stand and drop their popper will win the round and advance to the next round. Being double elimination, the losing shooter will move to the loser’s bracket and have a second chance to reach the finals and win the tournament. Because we are using 2x4s instead of bowling pins, any caliber from .22 LR to .45 should work fine. A shooter could go through 10 rounds with a minimum of 7 shots per round, you’d probably want to bring at least 100 rounds of ammo to be safe along with your favorite semi-auto or revolver. We will run a “cold range” which means firearms will remain unloaded in a holster or case until the shooters are at the firing line and instructed to load. We do, however, encourage shooters to have magazines and speed loaders loaded before they are called to the line. All skill levels and anyone over age 18 are welcomed.
