16th title for Koenig at the world's most prestigious pistol tournament

2015 MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup champion Doug Koenig

Doug Koenig secured his 16th NRA Action Pistol title this week at the 2015 MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup in Columbia, Missouri.

Established in 1979, the Bianchi Cup is a 192-shot tournament that tests a shooter's skills at several positions and distances, from cover, and against moving targets. Koenig's final score was a perfect 1920 with 180 tie-breaking Xs, which were needed against fellow perfect shooter Jeremy Newell, who ultimately took second overall with 166 Xs.
