Biography

Jim Gorman was from San Francisco and was the top American pistol shooter in the 1908 rapid-fire pistol team match, as evidenced by his bronze medal winning performance in the individual event. His third-place finish there was disputed, however, because he was declared to have completely missed one target. Gorman protested that it was a "double" – two shots through the same hole – and was worth nine points. The protest was overruled, though, and the loss of nine points dropped him from first to third.
