It’s time again for the upcoming International Revolver Championship coming June 1-3rd hosted a the Hogue Action Pistol Range in San Luis Obispo, CA.
The International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE) www.icore.org was founded in 1991 by Mike and Sharon Higashi. Amidst all of the other action shooting sports at the time they started the revolver-only competition. The sport combines elements of Bianchi Cup, IPSC, and the Steel Challenge exclusively for revolvers.
The event draws some 250 of the top revolver shooters from over 22 states and 6 foreign countries. The main match consists of approximately 300 rounds with side matches available every year. Smith & Wesson, www.smith-wesson.com, sponsors the match. A popular model in the event is the SW 627, 8 shot, where you just might see quite a few HIVIZ sights on the Limited Class revolvers!
S&W professional shooter and HIVIZ Pro Staffer, Jerry Miculek, www.bang-inc.com, has won 20 out of 21 Championships…and only because he missed attending one year!
Two of the summer upcoming regional matches are the Rocky Mountain Regional, June 23-24 at WCFW High Plains Shooting Range in Galeton, CO and the East Coast Regional on July 22 at the Ontelaunee Rod & Gun Club in New Tripoli, PA.
