Every June the small seaside town of San Luis Obispo, Calif., turns into the home of Wheelgun Nation, as the best shooters from around the world gather to compete in the annual Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship (IRC).

This year, the match, which is governed by the International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE), celebrates its 20th year. The 20th annual Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship will take place June 2-5 on the Hogue Action Pistol Range at the San Luis Obispo Sportsmen’s Association.

More than 240 of the best revolver shooters, representing 26 states and three foreign nations, are expected to compete and put more than 84,000 rounds downrange. Among those chasing the title will be local top gun Gregg Kratochvil of San Antonio.

“This year, at the Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship, we’re celebrating two decades of revolver competition excellence,” said Ron Joslin of ICORE. “Each year the best shooters in Wheelgun Nation gather to determine who is truly the world’s best with the venerable revolver.”

Shooters will compete in one of the three ICORE divisions -- Open, Limited, and Classic revolver -- and will navigate their way through 14 courses of fire shooting from a variety of positions at multiple targets set at various distances. Scores are based on time and accuracy, with the lowest score taking top honors.

“The IRC is about more than just speed, and with targets at distances out to 50 yards, accuracy is still king. The best shooters understand the delicate balance between the two, knowing when to trade speed for the perfect shot, and when to slow it down before the proverbial wheels come off,” Joslin explained.
