The Charleston Gunners played for 3 years in the Continental Basketball Association (CBA) during the late 1980’s. They originally moved to West Virginia from Florida where they had been the Sarasota or Florida Stingers. Sadly, their performance was a no-go both on and off the court. The Gunners made a CBA record 17-game losing streak and never finished with a winning record throughout their time. After three years in WV, they would move north to Ohio and become the Columbus Horizon.
