    Bianchi Cup!!!!!

    Wow, am I geeked!

    My nephew(who is a member here)spec has been invited to compete this year in Columbia Mo.
    Has anyone ever been to the Bianchi Cup to compete, or know anyone who has?

    What can you tell us as far as any DO'S & DON'TS as far as getting his pistol there?
    Is it better to send it through the mail, or just take it on the plane and risk, after checking it possibly losing it in the shuffle?
    What about other matches that some of you may have competed in that is on this level such as Camp Perry and the like? Maybe your experience going to those matches can give light and insight to him here.


    Comments, suggestions and ideas welcome.
    His dad says he doesn't know if he wants to take off of work to go with my nephew to the match, and I am going to pester him until he does go, as he is already retired from one job, and this job he has now is just to keep him out of trouble so-to-speak.

    This is really cool!
    Uncle oneshot is really proud!

    Personally, I would drive...but I drive everywhere now. I refuse to fly except in the most dire emergencies, thanks to the TSA.

    And Good Luck in the competition!

    Thanks lchamp, Jeanlouise, & goldshellback for the like.

    Nobody else have anything?

    Is it that competitive we're keeping our cards that close to our chest?

    lchamp, a close friend of my brother said in passing to my nephew "oh it's not that far I might just drive there".
    I'm even tossing around the idea of giong down there, maybe we might just drive!

    I can't offer any help on the competition part but I wouldn't trust any airline keeping track of anything. From what I hear there is a fair amount of theft going on with luggage.

    If I were you (and you can swing it) I'd make it a 3 guy road trip to the competition. It would be a lot of fun, very interesting and a great experience for all of you.

    ^^^^^^^Thanks^^^^^^
    I spoke to my brother today, and he said he is 98% sure he is going and driving, I said I wanted to go along for the ride, and my sister in law was thinking of going, and taking my other nephew(specs 19 YO brother) for a "vacation".
    This could be fun, sort of,,,
    Long as I don't wind up like the old aunt in the movie Vacation, I should be alright.

    I, too, am jealous, but wish him the best of luck.

    As far as driving, you do realize the most direct route takes you through Chicago and all the way across Illinois?

    I have mapped it out and if I go with them, we will drive through Toledo, head west on 24 to Ft. Wayne, and down 69 to Indy, then across.
    Hit the Gestapo, er Ill. line, and de-arm & lock'em up & drive straight across into MO, then, well you know.
    10 hour ride, which is all in a days work for me anyway, most days.

    Thanks for all the well wishes!!
