Rimfire Bowling Pin Shoot

22 Rim Fire Bowling Pin Shoot

Match Directors: Scott Hixon 740-248-9017 and Rich Hixon 740-248-6547

Shooting bowling pins is a fun way to spend an evening. This match is more laid back than some of the other more involved matches. Only equipment needed is a 22 rimfire pistol or rifle, ammo, safety gear and a good attitude!

No movement is required and reloads are not mandatory

We shoot the second Tuesday of every month April - September.  Please check the schedule on the main page of our web site to confirm match dates.

Sign up is from 4:45 – 7:00

We shoot from 5:00 to dusk

A Match consists of three rails, each having five bowling pins sitting on it, at a distance of 25 feet. The pins are sitting about 18” apart on the rail.

On signal from the Range Officer the shooter will load and make ready. The starting position is the gun barrel touching the table. At the sound of the buzzer the shooter will engage the pins on the first rail until they all have been knocked down. Usually one hit knocks them off.

This is called a "run". You repeat this action for the remaining two rails. Three runs are a "string" and three strings are a Match.


Adults (including ladies) are $5 for 3 strings

Juniors  (under 18) are  Free


Equipment needed: 

22 caliber rimfire Handgun, Revolver, or Carbine

Holster or case (soft or hard)

Carbines may use a chamber clear flag instead of case

Approx. 100 rounds of 22 ammo

Safety glasses

Hearing protection


You are scored in three (3) areas:

1. Average of all 9 runs

2.  Single fastest run



All normal club rules established by PCSI will apply with the exception of we will run a “COLD BAY” meaning no one can handle a firearm inside of the bay until they are at the start table and receive the load command from the Range Officer.
