It’s Classic Competition for the Bianchi Cup. The Barricades, the Plates, the Practical, and the Mover.
Bianchi Cup 2018
For 40 years the challenge has been the same, four courses of fire, 192 total shots, a chance at perfection. In fact a perfect score has been the pre-requisite to claim the title of Bianchi Cup Champion here for the last 28 years.
The race for the Bianchi Cup boils down to a handful of competitors who have shot three of the four events clean, and typically the final challenge for these competitors will be the moving target event.
That will be the case again in 2018, but there will be new records set in achieving perfection.
History’s Guns: Maynard Carbine
The War Between the States brought an amazing collection of firearms into battle. Everything from muzzle-loading muskets, to the first appearance of repeaters, the Henry and the Spencer.
