Cabot Guns shooter Brian Zins wins his 12th NRA Pistol Championship title

From the Cabot Guns press release, photos courtesy of Cabot Guns:

Cabot Guns’ marksman Brian “Gunny” Zins wins the NRA National Pistol Championship at the Camp Perry, capturing an unparalleled tally of twelve National Championship titles. It also represents back to back consecutive National Titles for Cabot and a victory from among a field of 643 of the world’s best pistol marksmen and equipment. This is the second year that Cabot Guns has committed to fielding an official team at Camp Perry, and the second year their shooters have brought home the title of National Pistol Champion.

Zins’ .45 caliber competition pistol is a standard production model Cabot 1911 that featured a new integrated optics rail milled directly into the slide, allowing his Aimpoint® H1 2MOA red dot sight to be aligned intimately close to the pistol’s bore axis.  Fittingly, Cabot has named this new model their “Cabot Bullseye.”
