    Bowling Pins at Central Lake MI

    I was there and had a great time. Did anybody else shoot the Evil Pins?

    Formerly the Second Chance pin shoot, now put on by R C Davis and Armor Express.

    Quite a drive from Indiana. Was it a handgun shoot?

    My club (OCSC) does a pin top shoot with 22s that's a lot of fun. Five sawn off pin tops are placed at two different heights on a table.

    I used to shoot up at Davis's place for almost 20 years. The most legal fun one could have while remaining fully dressed! It used to be a FBI match (Free Beer Included). Budweiser trailer would open up after the range closed. Great camaraderie, friendships made up there have lasted me my whole life.

    I remember the free beer and free beef. Great time to be had by all. Ooooh and the lovely pin setter ladies in the short shorts.

    I attended for 17 years making LGMB in 89 and then MB in 91. Got 3rd in the Winchester shoot off that year. I was and still am a revolver shooter and used a 230 gr wadcutter in 38 SPL cases on top of 7 gr of Blue Dot.

    The Pin Shoot this year runs from 7 June-14 June. You don't have to stay for the whole thing. If you sign up to shoot 1 main event (there are 4 mains, Stock, Pin, Space, and Concealed Carry) $150 each, you can camp for free on the Davis property. No hookups or dumping station but he usually supplies shot up pins for your evening bonfire, not for cooking over. The entry fee also includes a light breakfast, and your lunch each day. Plus he has ice tea, lemonade and cookies and popcorn available all day every day for free. there are side matches if you want to shoot some more, you must shoot your main(s) before any side matches. When I lived in northern Indiana I sometimes drove up and shot hard the first weekend, went home for a couple days then came back up to the match for more shooting and the awards ceremony which is held Friday late afternoon. It is a blast!!!!!
