CMP Raffling 1911 Pistol, Surplus Ammo to Early Registrants of 2023 Bianchi Cup
Still dreaming of a 1911 Pistol? The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is offering a 1911 giveaway through a special raffle for individuals who register for the upcoming CMP Bianchi Cup International Pistol Tournament, set to be held in Hallsville, Missouri, on May 23-26.
Those who sign up for the CMP Bianchi Cup BEFORE May 1, 2023, will be automatically entered into the 1911 raffle. Additionally, two bricks (500 rounds per brick) of .22 pistol standard velocity surplus ammo will also be raffled, meaning three chances to win overall.
The raffle is open to U.S. citizens only. If a non-U.S. citizen is drawn, he or she will receive $500 in place of the 1911 pistol. Those who have already purchased a pistol are still permitted to win.
The only requirement is to register, so learn more and mark your spot at the 2023 Bianchi Cup today at https://thecmp.org/competitions/cmp-pistol-program/cmp-bianchi-cup/.
About the CMP Bianchi Cup:
The Bianchi Cup International Pistol Tournament, the second longest running pistol championship in the world, will be hosted by the CMP for the first time, May 23-26, 2023, at the Green Valley Rifle & Pistol Club in Missouri. An annual event since 1979, the Bianchi Cup is comprised of four events:The Practical Event, where competitors fire at distances from 10 yards to 50 yards under varying time limits from the shooting line. The Barricade Event, where competitors fire at targets on either side of the barricade at different distances and under varying time limits from within shooting boxes and behind barricades. The Falling Plate Event, where competitors fire at eight-inch round steel plates arranged in banks of six at distances from 10 to 25 yards under varying time limits. The Moving Target Event, where competitors fire from within shooting boxes at distances ranging from 10 to 25 yards at a target moving from left to right, with the target exposed for six seconds.
Competitors shoot from both standing and prone positions and are also required to shoot with both strong and weak hands at various stages. There are no makeup shots in the Bianchi Cup, adding to the difficulty of the event.
The Civilian Marksmanship Program is a federally chartered 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation. It is dedicated to firearm safety and marksmanship training and to the promotion of marksmanship competition for citizens of the United States.
