NRA's Competitive Shooting Division has just released the guide to the 2012 MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup
, meaning that in just a few months, hundreds of the world's best action pistol shooters will make the trek to the Green Valley Rifle & Pistol Club outside Columbia, Missouri.
Scheduled for May 23-26, the 2012 NRA Bianchi Cup is one of the richest and most prestigious shooting championships in the world. Over $300,000 in prizes and cash is up for grabs, including the $15,000 in cash courtesy of title sponsor MidwayUSA that will go to the top-ranking first-time shooters.
Women, Junior & Men shooters who have never competed at the MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup will take home $2,500 for first place, $1,500 for second place and $700 for third place. This brings MidwayUSA's total sponsorship to more than $65,000, helping to fuel growth and additional sponsorship.
