  • Published in Sports

Brian “Gunny” Zins of Poland, Ohio, won his 11th National Pistol title this weekend during the NRA’s National Rifle & Pistol Championships in Camp Perry. Shooting an aggregate score of 2649-142x, Zins finished three points ahead of his nearest competitor.
“Considering that I took 18 months off due to an elbow injury, to win here in Camp Perry, it’s awesome,” said Zins. “I thought I was out after the .45 slow fire match. But I knuckled down and it worked out well.”
