    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.

    thanks for the info!
    Sundays are a good day for me, but not for competing.

    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.

    single actions ?

    Well, you COULD use a single action, as the rule book doesnt specifically prohibit them, but it does say that all reloads dring the course of fire must come from your gun belt. As some of the courses of fire are 30 rounds, you guys with the cowboy belts are going to have to get G-O-O-D at fishing cartridges outta them loops....

    Don, you can shoot this type of match at Livingston Gun Club over in Brighton......or with us over on the Lake Michigan side of the State..

    We could...outfit you with some high tech double actions to play this game...

    Most folks use a SW 625...but I have seen some fellahs use a WWI vintage British Webly revolver...(we picked on him, but he was really fast in the reloads since that firearm is a moonclip gun...)

    I just figured I'd put 5 of them in my belt and see how that would work :D

    I think the years of Cowboy Action kinda got all that shootin on the clock out of my system (well, most of it).
