No holster required. All stages will start with gun in hand, muzzle on post/table. Gun must be kept in range bag or holster and you will need to secure weapon in such at end of stage.
Each stage will be in multiples of 6 - 12, 18, 24 or 30. Match will be very revolver friendly.
Shooter will need minimum of 5 magazines and/or 6 speedloaders to complete some of the stages. You may carry as many as needed but under no circumstance will you be allowed to have someone loading and handing you ammo during the run.
Dropping a gun at anytime, loaded or empty, will result in a match DQ, no exceptions to this rule!
Stage design & description may dictate engagement sequence, firing position or firing style (standing, kneeling or prone). A stop plate may be used to end target engagement. Foot fault lines and shooting boxes will be used to control shooter movement.
Competitors may fire as many rounds as deemed necessary to complete each stage. Shooter may re-engage targets as needed to score hits.
Any live ammo falling to ground during run is "dead" and may not be retrieved and used for that stage.
Reload as needed - no restrictions as to when and where.
Targets will be any size/shape paper, static steel, knockdown steel and/or bowling pins. All paper targets will get 2 shots and require 2 full bullet hits on paper to score as hits. Any bullet breaking the edge of a paper target or touching black hardcover will be a miss. Static steel targets require 1 bullet hit on the face of the target. Any hits to sides will score as a miss. Knockdown steel must fall! Bowling pins must be knocked over.
Match will use a 180' muzzle safe point. Breaking the 180 will result in a match DQ.
Minimum power factor will be whatever it takes for your pistol to knock down steel. 130pf is recommended. Maximum velocity of 1200fps is in effect to prevent damage to steel targets.
All reloads must come from belt or pants pockets unless course description states otherwise (box, table, etc…)
Squib loads. Safety is paramount - STOP and clear weapon. Remove firearm to a safe gun handling area to check for any barrel obstructions. Competitor may reshoot stage when weapon is safe. A jam/failure to feed is not considered a squib. Clear it and deal with it.
All auto pistols will be limited to a maximum of 8 rounds in any magazine. 1911 guns with 7 round mags will be allowed to top off to 8 rounds to start. 8 rounds max in gun to start.
Have fun and enjoy the match! Help as needed painting and taping to keep match running smooth.
Time + penalties = total score. Penalties will be 1) misses = 5 seconds each 2) Knockdown steel still standing = 5 seconds 3) firing a shot out of bounds (foot fault or shooting box) = 5 seconds per shot fired.
Guthsville Rod and Gun, indoor ICORE match on January 29, 2006.
Registration will open at 9:30 and shooting starts at 10:30. The cost will be $10, no prizes, no payouts. Standard ICORE rules will apply.
Another match planned for February, but no firm date. Will advise.
Forgive my ignorance, but what is ICORE?
The International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts. The matches are shot on a combination of cardboard and steel targets. Draw, shoot and move, reloads, etc.. Scoring is time plus penalties for misses or less than center hits on the cardboard. Great fun. You'll need a revolver, a holster and at least 4 speedloaders. This match will have 5 stages, 4 standard set ups like at the second link below and a larger "field course". If you shoot the match clean, figure 120 rounds.
The PSA Shootout April 20 - 23
Over 150 falling steel targets. One of the biggest handgun events on the East coast, probably the biggest in PA. Figure 450 shooters. This is the one I look forward to every year!
The next indoor ICORE match at Guthsville will be Sunday, February 26, 2006. Sign in is at 9 and start at 10 am. See link with directions in my post above. They are thinking of shooting the Australian Postal Match:
Looks like a tough layout for iron sight guns. Should be a lot of fun.
Edit to fix link.
