Bianchi Cup
« on: November 16, 2022, 09:56:46 AM »
Seems the CMP has taken over the Bianchi Cup, which will still be held at Green Valley R&P in MO, since CMP doesn't have the facilities.  They could put in a mover but financially that might be a big loser.  However, there will be significant, to be announced, rule changes.   Since this is a May event they need to get those rules out soon.

Bianchi is on my bucket list, but so few places hold matches.  Plates, Practical and Barricade I can practice but the Mover requires a special range.  The nearest I've found to ATL is Tallahassee.

Of course CMP already has its own rules for Bullseye shooting, oh excuse me, Precision Pistol.  I just read through the differences which are mostly nits, though to serious shooters these can be a big deal.  Clubs are already divided, some following NRA and some CMP.  How this shakes out for world records and claim to national titles isn’t clear.

CMP has now posted the new rules for the Bianchi Cup formerly known as NRA Action Pistol.

First, the rules on Production division are rather strict.   You can't use a gun where you recut the rear sight slot.  That knocks out my 1911, not that that's an ideal choice anyway.   Of course you can shoot in the Metallic division instead.  Revolvers are limited to a 6.0" barrel.  That could get tricky because I think Smith's have somewhere between a 0"+.25" tolerance.  I'll have to measure mine.  And the blurb about all safety features makes me wonder if removing the hammer block is allowed.  Most everyone throws those away. And of course revolvers have to shoot the DA only and there no separate division for them.

There's some confusion in the Falling Plate stage description as the text says the plate is 8" round, but the picture shows a shorten Pepper Popper 12" in diameter.

Rimfire is now allowed but the range must provide different plate racks with lighter plates (1/4" thick) for them

THE BIGGEST CHANGE is that prone position has been removed from Plates.

Getting rid of prone should help the old folks...
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

Prone is still allowed in the Practical at the longer distances.  Bummer.
