Newbie here at this forum but not to shooting at pins. When I used to practice for Second Chance I welded up a table with steel strips about 1 1/2" wide. They would fall down when hit and reset with the tug of a rope. I spent many days at the rack, slow at first then picked up the speed.
I won numerous prizes, became a master blaster and have great memories from the match and fellow contestants that I will never forget.
Truthfully one of the most memorable times of my life, free beer (at night) beefalo roasts, fireworks, machine guns, explosions, competition, camping on site, putting blocks of ice into the public shower resevor, nato nuclear blast simulator? LOL the list goes on, thanks Richard! Saw him shoot himself twice!
