Columbia, Missouri - The MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup is a championship like no other. The richest, most prestigious action pistol tournament in the world. Three days of speed and accuracy you won't see anywhere else.
Top shooters from around the world trek to Columbia, Missouri every year to see who'll come out on top. But go there and you'll find more than the competitors. You'll find sponsors, fans and a whole lot of media.
In fact, it promises to a veritable who's who of shooting media showing up to the Green Valley Rifle & Pistol Club next week. A few will even step from behind the camera to throw a few shots down range.
A great example are the guys form Shooting USA.
"We tv guys, we spend our time covering matches and don't get a lot of trigger time," said USA Shooting reporter Mike Irvine. "If you're a novice shooter like I really am, you don't have to be scared ... you can get your shots on paper, get some points and feel good about yourself."
Once again Mike and John Scoutten will be making their way through the four stages of Bianchi. For a taste of their experience in Missouri, watch an interview from last year's event with Bianchi Cup where Match Director Tom Hughes.
