I've shot the pin-shaped steel plates with Stemmer's Run at AGC a couple of times and while it is fun and a challenge, shooting real wooden bowling pins is a whole different kind of crazy.

OK, you've said it again. Feel better? They've been allowing FMJ for decades and no one has ever been injured from it as far as I know. FMJ is all that I've ever run, with the exception of using a...

I don't think there's a class for PCC in pin matches but, no, I didn't see any. A few Glocks and 1911's in Stock class. I was the only one shooting a CZ. .22 Class had the most participants.

Did so-so today, ranging from the mid 8's to the low 12 second range. Reason: too many follow-up shots because the pins didn't go completely off the table with the first shot. 9mm, what can I say? ...

Gotcha. Sorry about that. I didn't consider that in my thread title. Do you find yourself taking more follow-up shots with 9mm than .45? Or, about the same?

I could definitely see where both flat nose and hollow point projectiles would be better performers on pins than round nose FMJ. Depending on how it goes today, that may be the way I go for the next...

I wasn't promoting the match. I was asking if anyone else was shooting pins with a 9mm and how they were doing? How was that misleading in any way?

First Pin Match Of 2019

I got hooked on shooting bowling pins about 35 years ago and still enjoy it even though my skill and speed have deteriorated severely over the decades. Normally, I'd just lube-up one of my 1911's,...

Mark in Silver Spring helped me set-up my .300 WM a few years ago. Ended-up buying a Leupold scope and rings from him. Very knowledgeable. I'm sorry to hear about their difficulties.
