ICORE (revolver) Competition-Wheelgunners

For those of you that like to compete:

The International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE) sanctions revolver matches around the country and in Australia. These are 'run n' gun matches and alot of fun and a good way to improve your overall skill with the pistol. S&W revolvers are frequently on the prize table as well.

I am the Match Director for one of these matches - the Central States Revolver Championship. If you are interested send me a message and I will get you the details or you can see more at ICORE Homepage. Match applications, rule book, etc all there.

Happy New Year,

JD

    ICORE in Wy

    Dear XP Hunter-
    Looks like the closest match to you is in Galeton, Co-about 5 hours away. Not a casual drive, but maybe you could make a weekend of it.

    If you go to the ICORE site, you can see the local clubs.

    10th annual rocky mountain regional revolver match

    Dear Ernie:
    This match at this club will be on saturday May 3. I am sure Mr. Doug Reed (match director) can assist you 970-304-1701.

    This is the Rocky Mountain Revolver Club in Galeton.

    I hope you give it a try. (bring lots of ammo and speedloaders!)

    I can shoot a revolver okay, but I have not used one for this type of shooting before.
    Typically, I shoot a single-shot more often, and then semi-autos.
    Would a 6" 586 work okay?

    ICORE equipment

    Dear Ernie:
    That 586 should be great. You dont need to shoot .357's , the plain old .38 will be plenty for this competition. You will need a holster, belt and speedloaders.
