The NRA National Action Pistol Championship, more commonly known as the NRA Bianchi Cup presented by MidwayUSA is the most prestigious action pistol competition in the world. Since its inception in 1979, the match has been the gold standard for pistol shooting championships.

Tiffany Piper of New Zealand won her first Bianchi Cup Women's Championship this year with a score of 3802-286X.

"I cannot thank my sponsors enough for everything they have done for me during my shooting career, said Piper. “I have been competing in the Bianchi Cup for nearly 10 years and I have always dreamed of this day when I would win the Women's Division. Congratulations to all of the other women for a great event and all of the other top winners, you all rock!"

Tiffany’s dad Karl Piper was presented with the skirt award at this year’s Bianchi Cup—a tradition at many NRA Action Pistol matches. The skirt award goes to the first male score after the first lady's score. Looks like it's not only the women who wear the skirts in the Piper family.
