The final event in the NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Championships is the Open Air Pistol Championship.

The schools fielding shooters vying for the team title were the USMA, USNA, Ohio St., MIT, Citadel, USCGA, Michigan St., Texas A&M, Yale and NDSU.

Ranked #1 in Open Air after NRA Sectionals, The United States Military Academy, held on to its position and won their second team title of the 2011 championships with a final score of 2224.

Finishing off his sweep of this year's individual category, Nick Mowrer of Pikes Peak Community College displayed exemplary shooting and took the Open Air individual title with a 678.4 score. Nick entered the finals with an eight point lead, which was extended to twelve after he posted an impressive 102.4 ten shots later.
