Placeholder Image
Rich Rolfe of Escalon placed fourth in the Open division at the 2010 Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championships (IRC) earlier this month in San Luis Obispo.

Wolfe won three of the 12 stages in the match but still finished 37.02 seconds behind defending champion and Team Smith & Wesson member Jerry Miculek of Princeton, La. Wolfe, who is ranked a Grand Master in revolver competition, the highest skill level in the sport, posted a final time of 262.58 seconds.

Organized by the International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts and held at Hogue Action Pistol Range at the San Luis Obispo Sportsmen's Association, the IRC drew more than 200 top revolver shooters, representing 22 states and six foreign nations.

Titles were awarded in the Open, Limited and Retro divisions with scoring based on time and accuracy where time penalties are accrued for misses and shots outside the x-ring.

The International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE) was founded in 1991 by Mike and Sharon Higashi, two longtime shooters active in all the handgun sports. Envisioned as an alternative to the race towards ultra-customized pistols that was occurring in the other action shooting sports, the revolver-only competition of ICORE would allow even the most basic equipment to be used and still provide enjoyment and satisfaction.
