Pin Shooting

Shooting bowling pins  – isn’t it a weird idea?

Pin shooting, as a sport, has a very interesting origin. It was started by Richard Davis, inventor of soft ballistic body armour from USA.

Old body armour (“bullet-proof vests”) was hard, heavy and uncomfortable to wear. As the result American police were not keen to wear it and when shot in the line of duty quite often paid with their lives. Richard Davis wanted to change this and was working on designing more modern, lighter and effective vests that could be also worn under the uniform. He experimented with different types of materials, also with Kevlar. He finally succeeded in producing the vest that could stop the bullets from powerful handguns and yet could be worn daily without much discomfort.
