Exciting news! Ankeny Ikes Practical Shooters is now hosting ICORE matches. International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE) matches are a fun and friendly opportunity for wheelgunners of all skill levels to experience action shooting with almost any double-action centerfire revolver. ICORE matches are typically a mixture of run-and-gun field courses, speed shoots, steel challenge stages, and standards. All stages will be 6-round neutral, to make it equally fun for everybody. ICORE scoring is “time-added” like IDPA–and while shooting quickly is very important at ICORE matches, raw speed never trumps practical accuracy. Saturday morning set-up starts at 8:30AM with the match beginning as soon as the courses are completed. ICORE uses three equipment divisions to give every double-action revolver a fair shake–your scores will be compared against competitors using similar equipment. Results and weather cancellations are posted on this site or you can reach the match director, Mike Carmoney at firstname.lastname@example.org. A downloadable calendar of our 2014 events is available here. Cost: $10 for Ankeny Ikes members and $15 for non-members. Membership in ICORE is encouraged, but you do not need to be an ICORE member to participate. Centerfire only: Minimum .32 caliber DA revolver with holster. Competitor must have means of safely carrying at least 4 speedloaders or moonclips (6-8 are strongly recommended) on belt Complete rules and equipment division information is available at www.icore.org For registration and match announcements check our Competitive Shooting Forums.
