I'm excited to announce... You heard it here first... "After an 18-year hiatus, I’m excited to bring the Pin Shoot back to life, marking Pin Shoot #25,” said Richard Davis.

See the attachment for complete details.

If you did not make any of the first 24, be sure and try to go.  It's very interesting and a lot of fun.

Does the entry fee only cover the Main Event? Are different events on different days? Why does it last an entire week?
The schedule is not clear on the website.

At this time I am planning on driving the van there. Just for fun though. I no longer have any blasters that would be useful at that match, reloading equipment, etc.

The Entry fee covers the 5 pin main event, food for the entire week and camping on the premises (if desired).  Competitors are first required to shoot the main event.  After that, they can compete in the optional events for an additional fee of $50 for 3 tables.  

There is no schedule of events.  Shooting will take place roughly from 9:00 AM - 8:00 PM daily.  Competitors can shoot any main event or optional event during this time.  

The awards ceremony will take place on Friday the 16th at approximately 7:00 PM.

Brian,

I am pretty sure that you have to attend this match according to Matt. Legends are required to attend this first year back................That might have even been the exact quote from Matt as he was explaining the match to me over dinner at his favorite adult establishment in the Detroit metro area last month. We got interrupted by a hot little blond that took Matt upstairs for a personal dance but you get idea. We even went over making sure that previous attendee's would have a differently color (hat,shirt,button,match ID..something to that effect) that would identify them as experienced shooters versus the new competitors attending.

When you are in the area, let me know and I can show you Matt's favorite hang out........and we can have an adult beverage (or two) while talking about Matt & Richard!!!!!

Did I mention that my Mom graduated high school with Richard and he used to hit on her? Yeah, Matt and I laugh about that...I really could have been his brother from the same mother unlike Henning who he calls his brother from another mother (when Henning shaves his beard, they do look like they are related...).

And how he designed his first SV pistol to be just like yours...........AWWWWWWWW.........Did you know that?

I look forward to seeing you there along with all the other Pin Shooting Legends.

Who did that? No matter what your answer, I didn't know that.

A much younger Brian in the middle as the winner of MB stock gun in 1990. I won the OSS PIn and BCBC. I will bet Brian had a Second Chance Commemorative like this as well. Still have it #065 out of 100. You could turn it in the next year for a full card, I never had the Heart to do it. Many people have heard of Ken Tapp 2nd from left. He told us he practiced Pins so much he shot from a chair and his wife reset the pins! Jerry Barnhart and myself both won full auto paint ball guns. We used them with another old time IPSC guy Jim Blevins to wipe out a regular team of six Ambulance drivers. Jerry could get a little intense! Cool to see it is coming back, it used to get a little crazy up there. David

I have sent them two emails with questions, both are over 2 to 3 weeks old with not reply. I went 4 years in a row back in the 80's. Looks a little pricey to me even if you register before March 31st.

I registered for 2 people on line, asked a question about classes on line and sent an email. That was over a week ago and nothing back from them. My buddy called a few times a few weeks ago and left messages and no reply.  HAS IT BEEN CANCELLED? Jim Kammerer and Dale Blair

Yes, the shoot is definitely going to happen. Not quite sure why there are delays in contacting shooters back.

there is something wrong.?!?!   my friend and I registered on line over 3 weeks ago and have heard nothing back (how 2 pay) from them.

 

and to get the good price ($250 vs. $500) you need to be registered AND PAID BY MARCH 31ST (2 DAYS AWAY)

 

Has any one paid and how did you pay?  Jim

I registered a few weeks ago online also. I called Armor Express and was told to mail a check. They had my discount registration documented. They are not taking credit cards this year, so mail a check and you should be good to go.
