Bowling Pin Shoot Pratice

Post by ronsholsters » Sat May 11, 2013 5:15 pm

At Shooting Sports in Tampa on Dale Mabry (south of Waters Ave.)
They have a bowling pin shoot once a month for practice.

Two people see who can knock 5 pins down the fastest.

On the practice night, Their is no elimination, everybody shoots the same number of times.

.22 and 9mm is the most common ammo used, but you can use other calibers.

The next public practice night is on May 23, 2013. Sign up is at 6:30PM, Shooting starts at 7PM.

You must call the range and pre register. If enough people are not signed up by May 22, it will be canceled.

Need a minimum of 5 shooters to hold the event and there is a 9 person limit.

It is by reservation only, You have to call the range 813-933-3000 and have someone put your name on
the bowling pin practice sign up sheet. The first 9 people that sign up have a spot.
Then you need to call the night before the shoot to verify that it is still on.

If there is not a minimum of 5 people it will be canceled.

If nine people show up, each person gets to shoot down the bowling pins 12 times.
That's 5 to 8 shots per time which could be approx. 100 rounds of ammo.
If one or two people no show, everyone gets to shoot one or two more times extra.

Cost is the range fee $10.95 plus tax if you are not a member.
And it is $8.50 if you are a member.
