Team Smith & Wesson member Doug Koenig was named the winner of the 2013 NRA Bianchi Cup National Championship. Shooting a Smith & Wesson 1911DK pistol, Koenig posted a final score of 1920-183X. Koenig, who has won 11 of the last 13 Bianchi Cup matches, shares the honor of being one of only two people who have won the match in the last 16 years.

Smith & Wesson sat down with Koenig to discuss his latest victory:

S&W: Doug, congratulations on your 15th Bianchi Cup title. After capturing your first cup in 1990, did you ever imagine that you would win the trophy another 14 times?
DK: I can honestly say I never did. Even when I won for the first time, I’m not sure I was quite ready to win. It was a very pleasant surprise then as it is now, but it’s just one of those things that you’re not quite sure will be possible. There are some really outstanding shooters competing and the race is always going to be tight.
