Zurek Takes Home the NRA .45 Caliber Title

Finishes Championship with 2 individual titles, 3rd overall

Port Clinton, Ohio - Scores are up for the .45 Caliber Championship. Those of us here at NRAblog send our congratulations out to this year’s .22 Caliber winner John Zurek because today he added the .45 Caliber Championship to his resume. Zurek mentioned earlier that he felt the .45 Caliber matches were his specialty — it appears he was correct.

Congratulations to all the winners in the individual .45 Caliber categories. We’ll be honoring them, and all the other pistol champs, tonight at the NRA National Pistol Championship Awards Ceremony.
