A complete listing of the rules and details of our match  are available at https://airfieldshootingclub.org/airfield-shooting-club-programs/asc-bowling-pin-matches/ . If you have specific questions, you can send them our resident Chief Adjunct Assistant Pinhead at stevengordon@cox.net

The Camo Pin Shoot

April 6th dawned dreary, damp and overcast. Despite the light drizzle, I headed out to the range, practice ammo and targets in tow. Certainly, few if any shooters are showing up for this pin match. I’ll hide under the pavilion and drill a few targets and go home. Imagine my surprise when I could not park on the line. We had 23 shooters. They were greeted with drizzle and rain and combined with Friday’s showers, the mud was epic. By mid way through the match, the pins looked like they were camouflaged as the berm colored mud coated them. Regardless, our intrepid sharpshooters picked them off will impunity. We even two shooters tie with a 3.00 second string in Carbine. Hat tip to Charles Langford on that one. Of course, he is the club record holder at 2.48 seconds. Results are below for your viewing pleasure.

Return of the Pins

Yes Gentle Shooters,

We have returned to that time of year again where bowling pins fall prostrate at the hands of our marksmen. Your match directors have spent the last week together preparing for this match. Ok, well there was the matter of picking up a new Corvette, shooting sporting clays, some bourbon, and of course the evasion of traffic enforcement, not in any particular order mind you. But we did talk about the match. Well, it was more like we thought about it. Had we actually discussed it, we would have told you to be there by 9:30 on Saturday, April 6th at the Airfield Range in beautiful midtown Wakefield. We would have advised that while the rules have not changed and the range has not moved, you can find all of that super pertinent information at www.airfieldshootingclub.org. We also maintain an adjunct assistant chief pinhead to answer specific questions at stevengordon@cox.net.
