Mock: "The National Pistol Championship is based on performance with three different types of handguns, using each in slow, timed and rapid fire. The total scores in the three separate events make up the aggregate. The possible score is 900 and events include the NRA .22 Caliber Pistol Championship; Clarke Memorial .38 Caliber Championship and the Orton Memorial .45 Caliber Championship. Last year's winner was Emmett Jones, a member of the Los Angeles Police Force. His score was 858, which set a new record."
