Offutt Pinion was a navy shooter in 1956 and contended with some horrible conditions to win the bronze medal in free pistol. The day of the event was very cold, with winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour. However, Pinion used some great wind doping to overcome one bad string of 88 and win the bronze medal. This was in his first international competition, although he had been All-Navy champion in 1956 and northwest regional champion in 1951 and 1952.
