Wounded Warrior still kicking butt.

05 Jun

The  NRA Bianchi Cup. has never been categorized as an easy event or something to laugh at. It takes an amazing amount of shooting skill as well as total determination.  Trevor Baucom from team Smith and Wesson is doing it and doing it from a wheel chair. He was wounded in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan but he isn’t letting that stop him. I applaud his determination and hope his recovery continues quickly.



As shots crack at the Green Valley Rifle and Pistol Club near Hallsville, where the Midway USA/NRA Bianchi Cup is under way, cardboard targets are peppered with holes as some of the best marksmen from all over the world fire from behind 6-foot-tall, 2-foot-wide barricades.

Lined up next to competitors from Italy, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Canada, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Australia and the United States, Trevor Baucom takes aim from a seated position while the others stand. Trevor is one of two competitors this year who are shooting from a wheelchair.
