Kahr Arms CW380 Pistol Review
Kahr Arms continues to grow its CW line of pistols, which includes the latest addition, the CW380, chambered in .380 ACP and based on the P380.

A recent addition to the line is the CW380 pistol, chambered in .380 ACP and based on the P380.

Grip circumference, width, trigger reach, and grip angle come into play when firing a pistol

Tiffany grips the pistol and readies to fire on the NRA Range Wendy LaFever, managing editor for NRA Family Insights, shares tips for the small-handed pistol shooter ...

Get a Grip (Angle, That Is)
The one subtle measurement that can affect a new shooter's success on the range.

When I began pistol shooting, one of the first things I noticed was that the ease with which I shot differed widely from pistol to pistol—even between guns that were very similar in terms of size, action type, weight and caliber. As a beginner, I blamed myself first: My hands just weren’t big enough for some guns’ grips. What I didn’t know was that there was a subtle but very important factor that I was totally missing.

2014 MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup honors champions to close out spectacular year

2014 MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup champions

Columbia, Missouri - Kevin Angstadt was last seen at Saturday night's MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup awards ceremony with a grin from ear to ear; and with good reason. He'd just accomplished two longterm goals at the National Action Pistol Championships. The first, to shoot a perfect score of 1920. The second, to win it all.

As hard as this is to believe, a perfect score at the Bianchi Cup is not a guaranteed win. Many of the best shooters in the world travel to Columbia, Missouri, for a chance to win John Bianchi's coveted trophy and competition is tight. If your name isn't Doug Koenig, you're going to find the 15-time champion waiting for you at the top. Competitors who have shot 1920 are part of an elite club. But it's not unheard of for championships to come down to the tiebreaking X's between two perfect shooters.

Virginia resident breaks Koenig's stranglehold on MidwayUSA/NRA Bianchi Cup

Kevin Angstadt self portrait at the NRA Bianchi Cup - borrowed from Angstadt's Facebook Page

Columbia, Missouri - For the first time in 17 years, the name Doug Koenig or Bruce Piatt will not be called to the stage when officials announce the Grand Champion of the MidwayUSA/NRA Bianchi Cup. Instead that honor goes to Reading, Pennsylvania's Kevin Angstadt and his 1920-171x.

Angstadt accomplished this feat by virtue of being the only competitor to shoot quadruple 480s in each of the four events (Practical, Barricade, Mover and Plates). 15-time winner Doug Koenig (winner of the last four Bianchi Cups) ended up with a 1918-182x while Nigel Gordon finished with a 1918-152x.

U.S. Marine Corps Reserve shooter Kevin Worrell captured his first Metallic Sight title with a 1907-127x while Jessie Duff snagged another Women's crown after firing a 1893-135x.

Once word of the Kevin's amazing success started to spread, congratulations started streaming in from around the globe.

Columbia, Missouri - With just one day remaining in the race for the the 2014 MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup title, shooters are busy preparing for their final events. At the front of the pack sits fifteen-time overall champion Doug Koenig, poised to add another title to his resume.

Posting a 1440-140x through the cup's Practical, Barricade, and Falling Plate events, Koenig faces the Moving Target event tomorrow to close out his run. Close behind and also going up against the mover tomorrow are Kevin Angstadt, 1440-136x; Kyle Schmidt, 1440-135x; Timothy Altenburg, 1440-130x; and Nigel Gordon, 1440-120x. And while there are some hefty gaps in X-count, one miss and it won't matter. Like usual, it's going to be a tense end and a close finish to the championship tomorrow afternoon.
