The 2016 edition of the “Steamboat Challenge” NRA Action Pistol Regional and Wyoming State Championship was conducted over the weekend. 34 competitors from seven states traveled to ‘Ol Cheyenne for a weekend of Championship level Action Pistol Competition. Otto Road Shooting Range was pleased to host members of the US Army’s elite Marksmanship Unit from Fort Benning, Georgia and eight time Women's National Action Pistol Champion Ms. Vera Koo. During the Saturday Regional Championship Wyoming Governor Matt Mead stopped by to observe shooting events and meet and greet all the competitors. Governor Mead is a stalwart supporter of the NRA, Second Amendment Rights and all shooting sports activities and we were "beyond pleased" to have him stop by and support this competition!
The Saturday Regional Championship shooting program was the same as the NRA Bianchi Cup National Action Pistol Championship held every year in Columbia, MO. There were four shooting events: The Practical, The Moving Target, The Barricade, and the Falling Plates. All events require the competitor to draw his/her handgun from a holster and shoot with high accuracy under time pressure. Each event is a test of the competitors handgun shooting skills under a variety of difficult conditions. A total of 192 shots were fired for the Saturday Regional with a maximum possible score of 1920-192X
Top three competitors:
NRA Gold Medallion: James Avenell, Columbia, MO 1920-172X
