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. If you have questions about the event, please feel free to reach out to CMP’s Pistol Coordinator, Jim Henderson, at

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.
