It's the weekend, so let's reward ourselves with a sampling of the best GIFs from the 2019 NRA Bianchi Cup Action Pistol Championship, held last month at the Green Valley Rifle and Pistol Club in Hallsville, MO.

10. We begin with NRA Board Member Julie Golob cleaning the plate rack at the Falling Plate Event. Be sure to read her write-up on the first-ever Action Pistol Triple Cup Challenge.

8. Next up is the legendary pistol shooter and Bianchi Cup mainstay Rob Leatham displaying some of his technique to a group of shooters that are paying very close attention to him.

7. Here is U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit shooter, 2019 Bianchi runner-up and 2018 Bianchi Cup Champion Adam Sokolowski as he tackles the Moving Target Event. Note that Sokolowski is shooting his second gun for the Multi-Gun Aggregate here, not his Open pistol.

6. Here is Rob Leatham once again, this time while shooting the Barricade Event. Leatham finished second in the Bianchi Production division this year.
