Virginia shooters acquitted themselves quite nicely at the 2017 Bianchi Cup, the NRA Action Pistol National Championship event held at Columbia, MO from the 23rd through the 27th of May. They won, respectively, 1st Revolver and 4th Police (Greg Davis), 2nd Senior (Jon Stoehr) and 1st Grand Senior (John Sanders).

In the preliminary scores leading into the Final Colt Shootoff on Saturday, Kevin Angstadt and Greg Davis, both members here at BRRC, and Travis Hayton from Bluefield, VA were in the top 30 out of 179 shooters. Jon Stoehr and John Sanders are from Northern VA and have shot here at our Regional & State Championship events.

April Update

Four of us went to Lake Charles, LA to shoot in their Regional match, The Crawfish Cup; Andy Krantz, Kevin Angstadt,Ben Boyette and Alan Strawn. Kevin finished second overall behind Bruce Piatt, and Andy finished second in Senior Division.

The Bianchi Cup is this month at Columbia, MO and we’ll be well represented again this year. Numbers are down due to some political issues within the NRA. Dennis Willing, Pistol Coordinator and Damien Orsinger, Action Pistol Coordinator have both resigned and Midway USA is no longer a sponsor of the Cup. Many other sponsors dropped out, not just in AP but in Competitions overall including the National Championship matches that have been held at Camp Perry in the past due to the way NRA has handled sponsorship money.

Monthly update - March 13, 2017

posted Mar 13, 2017, 12:11 PM by Alan Strawn

   BRRC no longer hosts 3-Gun matches due to a lack of range personnel.

   Entry forms for The Overlord Memorial Cup (Regional NRA Action Pistol Championship) and The Cardinal Cup (VA State NRA Action Pistol Championship) will be posted on the first of May.  Match programs are already posted at the left of the Home Page under "2017 Action Pistol Championships".  Entry forms will be in that same section. 

   A new "carport" is being installed at the back of the Mover range this month for shade & shelter from rain.

   Two new Cowboy matches have been added to the schedule: March 25th and April 29th.  These are Saturday events starting later in the day than the "first Sunday" matches already on the calendar.

   The USMC Pistol Team will be visiting our range from March 28th through the 31st for Action Pistol practice, so the lower ranges will be in use and may be a bit crowded during that time frame.  This will not affect the scheduled Skeet match on the 29th.

   At least 4 of our members plan to participate in the Crawfish Cup Regional NRA Action Pistol Championship  at Lake Charles, LA in April: Andy Krantz, Kevin Angstadt, Alan Strawn and Ben Boyette.  That 2-day event is the largest Regional AP match in the country with many of the world's top shooters/past Bianchi Cup winners and international participants.  Wish us luck!!

   On the 3rd Saturday of each month, BRRC is holding a Rimfire Steel Match for Rimfire pistols and rifles.  These matches consist of 3-5 courses of fire (cof) involving the use of rimfire guns on closeup and large targets.  Fun for the whole family.  The cof's involve shooting at steel targets from 10-35 yards.  Each stage will involve shooting at the targets 5 times with the slowest time thrown out.  The other 4 times added together will comprise your score.  All categories of Rimfire rifles & pistols are allowed and compete separately.  Ammo is available for sale @ ~.10 per round if you need ammo.  Contact us for further info.
