Bruce Piatt claims 2009 NRA Bianchi Cup Title

Bruce Piatt of Montvale, New Jersey won the 2009 NRA National Action Pistol Championship, also known as the Bianchi Cup, over the Memorial Day weekend in Columbia, Missouri. Piatt prevailed with an aggregate score of 1920-181 in the Open Division to edge out second place finisher Doug Koenig’s tally of 1920 – 177. Four time cup winner John Pride finished third.
Rob Leatham’s score of 1909 reclaimed the Metallic Division title from last year’s champ Robert Vadasz by two points. This was the seventh Metallic Division title for Leatham.

In addition to the Open and Metallic Divisions, the 2009 NRA Bianchi Cup introduced the Production Division. The Open Division allows competitors to modify their guns or sights in any fashion. Metallic Division shooters may only equip their firearms with metallic sights while Production Division participants fire a pistol that hasn’t been altered in any way.

The inaugural Bianchi Cup Production Division title went to Team Glock captain Dave Sevigny with a score of 1806 – 101. Jess Christensen took second with a 1795 – 111 and John McNally placed third.

This world-renowned pistol competition draws shooters from across the globe. In 2009, competitors haled from Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United States.
