The NRA Bianchi cup has been around for over 30 years and is a perfect blend of accuracy and speed. Because of the requirements for barricades and a moving target, not many facilities can host a match. TRPC may be the only facility in Florida to host this event. There are plenty of references on the internet that can show the competitors shooting the match.
