The Warm-Up match, which was introduced in 2009 offers pistol shooters an opportunity to gain more experience with their service pistols, and fire them in a major competition. The match also gives many National Trophy Pistol competitors a chance to fine tune for the Trophy Matches at the end of the week. SFC Henderson holds the record in the match, set in its first year (392-15X).
