I had the results of the International Revolver Championship up in a previous post, but I wanted to link you to Julie Golob’s excellent recap of the match. It’s one thing to have me tell you what happened at a match, but it’s another thing entirely to have a first hand account from one of the match champions. Julie also has an excellent video from the Junior Shoot-Off, which after watching it a few times I have to say that I’m impressed. Texas stars are hard enough as is, and doing them with a revolver just increases the level of difficulty.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve probably bored you to death with it, but the IRC is on my “must shoot” list of matches. The Hogue Action Pistol Range (where the match is held) is dead in the middle of two of my favorite places on earth: Morro Bay and San Lois Obispo. Situated in the heart of California’s Central Coast Wine Country as well, the area around the match offers a smorgasbord of activities, from wine tasting, fresh seafood, shopping, and even a giant chess set if you’re so inclined. Essentially, if you’re there to shoot the match and your spouse/partner/whatever doesn’t want to watch you haul a revolver around all day, there will be plenty of activities in which they can participate outside of the match. They could even drive up the coast a bit to Hearst Castle to see what happens when a person has more money than sanity.
