HALLSVILLE, Mo. – The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is excited to announce MidwayUSA will return as the Title Sponsor of the 2024 Bianchi Cup International Pistol Tournament – set to fire May 21-24 at the Green Valley Rifle & Pistol Club in Hallsville, Mo.
The Bianchi Cup is the second longest running pistol championship in the world. The event is open to adults and juniors, including those who have never participated in action pistol competition. With the success of the CMP’s inaugural event in 2023, staff members are anticipating an even greater turnout in 2024 from spectators, competitors and sponsors.
“The 2024 Bianchi Cup is shaping up to be a great year, with increased sponsorship from new companies and the return of companies we have had long standing relationships with,” said Jim Henderson, CMP pistol coordinator.
“We’re grateful that one such company, MidwayUSA, has renewed their commitment to the Bianchi Cup as the Title Sponsor,” he went on. “Their dedication to the shooting sports is legendary, and we at the CMP look forward to having MidwayUSA as the title sponsor for many years to come.”

About the CMP Bianchi Cup: The CMP Bianchi Cup features a mix of International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) and precision pistol shooting styles. The championship has become internationally recognized by top marksmen and women and is comprised of four events: Practical, Barricade Event, Falling Plate Event, anda Moving Target Event.
A Rimfire Division has been added to the 2024 Bianchi Cup and is a perfect start for anyone new to action pistol competition and juniors not shooting centerfire pistol. Rimfire is also beneficial to adults who want to warm up for the Bianchi Cup in a less expensive manner or those who would like some “match conditions” training. Additionally, Provisional Divisions for Production and Production Optics have been added to the 2024 Bianchi Cup (with current Production and Production Optics divisions remaining unchanged). We hope you’ll join us!
