How about Doug Koenig?
Koenig - 2nd
Wow. I wonder who will be the first to ever come between Bruce and Doug. Seems like for years they just swap this thing back and forth. Although I believe Doug held on to it few years in a row. Anyway, It looks like the scores get tighter and tighter every year.
Personally, I believe it will be Kevin Angstadt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
...Dave Sevigny won Production ,
....and I too believe it will be either Kevin Angstadt or Carl Bernosky or Don Golembieski as they are the only ones shooting the extreme X counts and maybe just maybe Robert Vadasz if he goes open, or even Brian Zins if he decides to play the game seriously. Regardless, the next 2-5 years of AP should be exciting and expect some surprises.
On a side bar, Ross Newell (Australia) won the Match in 1996, but Mickey Fowler (USA) was awarded the Bianchi Cup, but I may have been the last person to beat both Doug and Bruce in an NRA AP match. It was New York Stae Championships, June of 1999 in Holland Patent, NY. There, they had rimfire matches in addition to the CF 1920. I was first RF Open with a 1906-156X, then Doug with a 1900-176X and then Bruce with a 1798-161X and Carl Bernosky with a 1764-140X. That match bulletin is a keeper!

BTW, the match was fired on 8" by 3/8" falling plates. Doug should have had a 1920, but two center hit plates did not fall for him and I think Bruce had some malfs and some non falling hit plates too. I had larger groups on the plates, and zeroed slightly higher, so I had only one plate not fall. I won with a 1906! I just may have beat them with the largest point spread ever too. By the way, Bruce won Open with a 1920-166X and Doug had a 1918-184X. Possibly the last 8 he shot since 1999 except for 2008 too.
It'll b Kev!!!!!
