This is a big deal for NRA Action Pistol Regional Championships. If other Regional Championships gain sponsorship such as the Crawfish Cup, it would be a major boom for competitive shooting in general.
The Southwest Louisiana Rifle and Pistol Club has hosted NRA Action Pistol tournaments since 1987, and has worked continuously to improve the range. Action Pistol fans have noticed, because in the last few years attendance has doubled. Last year’s Crawfish Cup had 75 competitors.
“The club has worked hard to duplicate the equipment and conditions found at the Bianchi Cup,” said Crawfish Cup Match Coordinator George Mowbray. “After the winter break, many of the top shooters like to come shoot a quality match prior to heading to Missouri, so by design, the timing of the tournament is approximately one month prior to the Bianchi Cup. We are anticipating an even larger turnout in 2016, and with the help of Midsouth Shooters, we are increasing the range capacity with the addition of a second moving target along with other improvements.”
