COLUMBIA, Mo. –-( Kevin Angstadt of Rural Retreat, Virginia, won his first MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup on the tournament’s 35th anniversary last weekend, shooting a perfect score of 1920-171x.

Fifteen-time Bianchi Cup champion Doug Koenig placed second overall with 1918-182x and Australian Nigel Gordon finished third with 1918-152x.

The National Action Pistol Championship is the richest and most prestigious shooting tournament in the world. The 2014 championship, held May 21-24 at the Green Valley Rifle & Pistol Club in Columbia, Missouri, featured a record-setting 295 competitors and $500,000 in cash and prizes.

“The Bianchi Cup is unlike any other shooting sport I’ve been a part of,” Angstadt said. “To win is a dream come true for all action pistol shooters.”

Founded in 1979 by former police officer and holster maker John Bianchi, success in the MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup requires a perfect balance of speed and accuracy. The 192-shot championship is comprised of four timed events: Practical, Barricade, Moving Target and Falling Plate. In addition to being grouped by age, gender, and shooting skill, competitors may opt to shoot in the Open, Metallic, or Production divisions, determined by the type of modifications made to the firearm.

  • National Champion: Kevin Angstadt – 1920-171x
