Phil hits the deck on the 50 yard stage of the Practical. Going prone helps keep the gun stable for long shots.

The Barricade Event is the only of the Bianchi Events that calls for truly fast shooting – the 10 yard stage is 6 shots in 5 seconds, which actually isn’t that fast, but it’s certainly faster than any of the other stages.

BJ Norris with his S&W 5906 on the plates. I asked why he shot a 5906 and not an M&P, and he told me because that the 5906 locks up very similarly to a 1911, making it a tad more inherently accurate than the M&P, and in this game, accuracy is everything.

Cutting down the Speed Steel Event. I like this photo, because even though you can’t see the shooters very well, you can see their results – the steel is on the way down, but hasn’t finished falling yet.

I actually took a lot more photos than this – there are some in the album that I didn’t post up, but you’re free to view with a click of your mouse, and hopefully you’ll see some of my work in an upcoming issue of a major firearms magazine.
