Win Prizes in NRA Competitive Shooting Trivia Contests

The NRA Competitive Shooting Department is promoting a trivia contest on its Facebook page. Once every couple of weeks, the Competitive Shooting staffers gather round, decide on a question and pick a prize. Correct answers are put in a hat and winner is picked.

The last winner, Pennsylvanian Robert Berl, correctly answered that Michelle Gallagher won the 1,000 yard Any Sight Match (Band of Brothers Match) at the 2010 National Long Range Championships.

If you submit a correct entry in this week’s contest, you can win a valuable prize. This week’s question is: “Who was the winner of the inaugural 1979 Bianchi Cup?” Once you’ve figured that out, send an email to compadmin@nrahq.org by 4:00 pm ET on Thursday, February 13 and you can win a 2011 MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup Gift bag. Inside the bag is a 2012 Bianchi Cup brochure signed by John Bianchi himself and 2011 Bianchi Woman’s Champion Jessie Harrison.
