It's time to head off to Marion County Fish & Game for the monthly bowling pin shoot. I think I'm going to be shooting my Para LTC 9 in minor today, since I have plenty of Winchester 147gr JHP and Federal 147gr HydraShok that I bought for the sole purpose of shooting pins. If you like shooting a 9mm handgun at bowling pins and you see surplussed LE 147gr hollow points at a gun show for 50rds/$20, you snatch them up. The heavy bullets have a lot more pin-clearing momentum than 115gr or 124gr projectiles, and the JHP configuration reduces the chances of the bullet skidding off the pin on an off-center hit and leaving a "wounded" pin on the table.
I wonder if Massad Ayoob's book about pin shooting, Hit the White Part, is any good?
