    Shotgun Bowling

    Shot the Mossberg 930 in a speed bowling match this morning...



    Start Position: Facing downrange, hands relaxed at side.
    Start - Stop: Audible- Last Shot.
    Distance: 7 yards Stage 1, 10 yards Stage 2, 13 yards Stage 3
    Targets: 6 Bowling Pins per Stage.
    Round Count: Comstock (unlimited rounds). Shoot until all six pins are down each Stage.
    Penalties: Procedural (plus) + 3 seconds.
    Scoring: Shortest time for all 3 Stages combined.
    Classes: Semi-Auto, Revolver, 22 LR (pistol or rifle), Shotgun (birdshot only)
    Entry Fee: $10 for first gun & $5 second gun for members, non-members pay $10 extra per day for range fee.
    Setup Notes: Place pins on red dots. Continue to use pins as long as they will stand or do not create an unfair advantage.
    R.O. Notes: If a shooter does not have a holster for their pistol, place the pistol on a table for the start position. Shotgun and 22 LR start position is on a table.

    Here's a pic of my 930 (far right) with a couple others in the match, a Benelli M4 and M2...




    RC,

    You'll be happy to see that other than the +2 extension, the 930 is still all factory. It's simple, light, and fast...

            4.54 was the fastest time on that stage.

            I was so close. The final results haven't been sent out yet, but I remember the overall fastest combined time for all three stages was 14 seconds and some change. I think I placed third or fourth overall. Could have done better, but I'm pretty happy with the results considering it was the first time I've ever shot a scattergun in competition...

                        The pins are a lot of run and are more challenging than I though it would be, especially with a pistol. I ran the course with one of my 1911s as well. Those pins sure do look a lot smaller when you're lookin at 'em down hand gun sights...

                          Hold a pin against your chest and you will see why they make great targets. They pretty well cover all the important parts you suppose to be shooting at.

                            Cool vid and shoot! A bunch of us friends got together a few years back to do some shotgun bowling, set the pins up around ten yards away. After the first two shots, the shooter and spectators were being peppered with shot!

                            Not bad and nobody even had marks from it but we stopped after that and just shot the pins with pistols!

                            I guess cheap lead bird shot is not the ammo to use for shotgun bowling!

                              We had a couple people get peppered on the ten yard stage that day, myself included, but not with lead shot.

                              Stung like hell and left marks on clothing and skin, but no blood. One shooter was using steel shot and that's what came back at us...
