The United States’ team won with relative ease. The captain of the U.S. pistol team, Dr. Reginald Sayre, commented, “The weather conditions were bad, and I should say that the shooting was only up to our average practice. Gorman’s victory over Van Asbroeck today was a source of great satisfaction to us, however. The Continentals certainly had the advantage over us. Most of them used longer barrels than are permitted in the United States and also hair triggers. We have to pull at least two pounds in excess of them. The continental weapons are very superior for such a match as was shot today, but the better marksmanship of our team counteracted everything.) Sayre also expressed gratitude at the reception accorded the American shooters in London.
