Blacklight Bowling Pin Shoot

October 30 • 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Entry Fee: $30.00 – Guest must provide payment (in the store or over the phone) no later than close of business Tuesday, October 29th. Failure to do so will cause your registration to be canceled and the seat offered to a wait-listed guest.

Format: Single Elimination Bracket

Equipment Requirements: Ear protection, eye protection, 9mm handgun, firearm case, and polycased frangible ammunition. Ammunition MUST be purchased at Triangle Shooting Academy. Please understand that this requirement is in place as a safety precaution in efforts to eliminate the chance of ricochet.

Distance & Rounds:
5 Yards with 10 Round Capacity


  • Two shooters will shoot head-to-head
  • The first shooter to knock all bowling pins off the platform wins that round
  • Winner will be placed in an appropriate bracket

Bracket Placing: Shooters will randomly draw a number between 1-10. That number represents your starting place in the bracket. Numbers will be drawn based on shooters’ arrival.


Chief Range Safety Officer Commands:

  • SHOOTERS, LOAD AND MAKE READY – Insert your magazine into your firearm. Release your slide to chamber a round. Take a low ready or high ready position.
  • SHOOTERS, READY? – Nod to confirm you are ready to begin
  • STAND BY, – CRSO is about to command you to begin firing.
  • *BUZZER WILL SOUND* – Begin firing.
  • WINNER LEFT/WINNER RIGHT – Immediately stop firing. This command means that the match has ended.
  • UNLOAD AND SHOW CLEAR – Unload your firearm by removing the magazine and locking the slide to the rear. Place your firearm on the bench in front of you with the barrel facing downrange and the chamber facing up.
  • Firearms will be visually and physically inspected by the shooter and the Range Safety Officer. Firearms will then be cased, and the Range Safety Officer will command that the LINE IS SAFE.
  • SETUP PINS – Last shooters will go forward of the firing line to set up their knocked down pins.

Safety Rules Disqualifications

Failure to follow any Triangle Shooting Academy Bowling Pin Shoot Safety Rules or Triangle Shooting Academy General Safety Rules can result in immediate disqualification from the match. Triangle Shooting Academy Range Safety Officers have the final say.
