I Just Returned Form The 21St Irc.

30 posts in this topic

The IRC, or International Revolver Championship Just held it's 21st event in Morro Bay this weekend. And for the 20th year in a row, the event was won by none other than Jerry Miculek. Wow, can that man shoot. I shoot the exact same stages he shot and when I compare my scores to his, I just have to shake my head. How can anyone shoot that fast. It was a great event, and my first time there, but definately not my last. There were 241 entries from all over the US and Austrailia and Switzerland to name just a few. I was pleased with myself, for my first time out, I finished 222 over all and 6th for my division. Not bad for a fat old man. If you go to www.icore.org you can review the results. I had heard that Jim Scoutten was going to be there filming his show to be broadcast at a later date. However, I never saw him. Did see a few camera men though, so I hope they did film it. Unfortunatily I didn't get to see every one shoot all the stages, just the guys and gals I was shooting with. Sure learned a lot too. Hopefully, it's going to make me a beter shooter. I get to try some of the ideas this coming Sunday at our local event. For those of you that like revolvers, Bisley, you should look for some ICORE events to shoot near you. The South west Regional event was held in Richmond this year. Unfortunately, I missed it due to some serious health issues in the family. the midwest rgionals are going to be held in Falon NV the end of September. I'm planning on heading to that one.

That does sound like a blast! I would love to go just to see the talent. I can not even begin to imagine the humbleness after watching them guys shoot. I would love to see someone try and tell them that revolvers are outdated and that they should buy an auto :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow: . Will definitely have to look into it, thanks Braz.

Revolvers are great in the hand of someone who knows how to shoot them. Jerry wins lots of IDPA and USPSA matchs, which are designed for semi automatics. he still out shoots them.

Here is a quick link to some of Jerry's super fast shooting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uisHfKj2JiI

Like he says, if you wan to shoot fast, be the first one at the rnge and the last one o leave. then spend your free time loading ammo and smoothing up the guns themselves.

Yep, Jerry Miculek is an impressive shooter. It's always something to see someone who can really shoot. Not only does he shoot fast, but extremely accurate as well. He isn't spraying those bullets fast as he can pull the trigger, I've read you can cover those groups with a playing card.

Another very impressive shooter was Ed McGivern. He set most of the records Miculek went after...and he did this back in the 30's with a factory, out of the box model 10 SW revolver.

I couldn't shoot a full automatic that fast.

I haven't seen that video in a couple years, thanks for putting it up Braz. That video and some of the ones showing how quick these guys can draw and shoot (accurately) always just leave me in awe :yikes[1]:

It really leaves you in awe when you're competing against them and watch them run the stage that you have to do later or have just finished and are feeling bad about because of all he errors and being so slow.

I think I would have to super glue the cylinder shut and tell everyone it is jammed and I can not shoot, but maybe next time :rolleyes:

As cool as the videos are, I would love to see that in person though. It just does not seem physically possible to be able to shoot that fast, let alone hit that fast :blink:

Just check for an ICORE club in your area an go visit one of their matches. You will be amazed at the talent of some of the folks. And in some cases they are young folks. Man oh man can some of the youngsters shoot.

Yesterday, I bought a Smith and Wesson 10-14 that I'm planning on having made into a limited gun, shooting moonclips with a competition trigger job. but I gotta get past the damned 10 waiting period first. I would love to take it out this weekend and give it a run, but it's in jail. We hve another ICORE match at our gridley range for anyone that is interest. If all you want to do is come out and watch please feel free to come on out. Ans for me, I'll be there. I'm sure you will enjoy just watching. Here are a few pictures of the new to me pistol. As you cn see it only has a very faint turn line on th ecylinder. I don't believe it has been shot much. I'll shoot the heck outta it when i get it fixed the way I want it. The logo comes from the guy that I bought it from. These are his pictures.

Suuurrree. I hate to say it, but now I think you're just messin' with me on purpose :rofl2: . Could you at least draw a detailed color sketch of it? And one of the targets you shot while you're at it would be nice too :lol: .
