Like the Bianchi Cup, the WAPC course of fire is the four events that comprise the Action Pistol Championship—the Practical, Barricade, Falling Plates, and Moving Target. The WAPC aggregate totals the four events. Seven countries were represented at this year's two-day event, which was previously held in 2016 in Whangarei, New Zealand. Previous championships have been in Australia, Germany, Italy, New Zealand and also in the United States.
