WINNING G/G - REVOLVER
PERFORMANCE CENTER M&P
For stock gun divisions, my go-to gun is the S&W Performance Center Pro Series M&P in 9mm. This rugged and reliable pistol is a top choice for double action first shot and striker-fired only divisions like IPSC Production, USPSA Production, IDPA Stock Service and Enhanced Service Pistol divisions and Steel Challenge Production. The 5 inch model provides that extra bit of help in detecting any errors in my sight picture so that I can deliver accurate shots at speed.
PERFORMANCE CENTER 929
I’ve won national and international titles with Performance Center 625 and 627, but the 929 has to be one of my all time favorite wheel guns. It’s the go-competition gun in International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiast and USPSA events as an 8-shot revolver. Cut for moon clips, it reloads short 9mm cases like a dream.

PERFORMANCE CENTER 1911
I grew up shooting 1911’s and it’s no surprise that one of my all time favorite handguns is the S&W Performance Center Pro Series 9mm 1911. The hefty weight of the 1911 combined with the legendary ergonomic design makes this gun a pure delight to shoot. A slim VZ-grip makes it easy to control recoil and access all the controls. All that and the gun shoots so soft, it almost feels like cheating. My NRA Action Pistol Bianchi Open guns are also built on S&W 9mm 1911 frame. It has proven to be a winning combination.
American Eagle is my go-to choice for competitions. With so many offerings in caliber and grain weight, it’s easy to find a load that not only shoots great but produces the results I need on target with consistent, reliable and affordable performance. My all-time favorite is the 147 gr. offering that I use for Classic/Single Stack, Production and Revolver divisions. It’s the perfect blend of accuracy and recoil impulse that delivers for every shot.
I rely on Federal Premium for all my ammunition needs, from centerfire and rimfire handgun ammo to rifle loads to effective shot shells. From testing the new smooth shooting and clean Syntech to busting clays in with Federal’s many shotshell options to relying on the best ammo on the range and in the field with Black Cloud, 3rd Degree, Fusion MSR, Gold Medal Match and more. I choose Federal Premium because every shot counts.
Rugged, sealed, bright, clear… everything you want and need in a miniature reflex site and that’s where the Trijicon MRO delivers. Most shooters mount their reliable MRO’s on their rifles, carbines and shotguns but mine have also found a home on my customized S&W 9mm 1911’s for NRA Action Pistol competition. In Bianchi Cup there are no alibis and in the quest for that perfect 1920 score, no compromises. I rely on Trijicon.
Slide mounted optics are all the rage right now and as they should be! The Trijicon RMR represents an advancement in technology that meets the demands of the every day shooter and competitor. I love my RMR’s because they are easy to mount and simple to use. A bright, crisp dot in a crystal clear field, it’s there for me every time I need it for fast and accurate shots.
For carry guns and iron sight competition, Trijicon night sights get me on target and fast in day or night, bright or dark. Magnified optics for my spotting game and bullet holes as well as AccuPoint optics on my hunting rifles give me clear, crisp vision when I’m in the field or testing my shooting skills out on distant targets.
