Brownells Sponsors 19th Annual International Revolver Championships
LOS OSOS, Calif. –-(Ammoland.com)- The International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE) announced that Brownells, the world’s largest supplier of firearm parts, gunsmithing tools, equipment and accessories, has signed on as a premier sponsor of the organization’s 19th Annual Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championships scheduled for June 4-6 in San Luis Obispo, Calif.
“Brownells has a long tradition of supporting the shooting sports and over the years has played a vital role in helping to build the International Revolver Championships into ICORE’s preeminent showcase of top level revolver competitors.
We’re proud to once again welcome Brownells as a key ICORE partner and thank them for their generous support,” said Art Leach of ICORE.
The 19th Annual Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championships will take place the first weekend of June on the Hogue Action Pistol Range at the San Luis Obispo Sportsmen’s Association. The match is the highlight of the revolver shooting season with 200 of the nation’s top revolver shooters, as well as several from outside the United States, expected to compete.
“Revolvers are not outdated and the ICORE philosophy is a winner. A good organization, with a challenging match, for guns that use products we sell – that combination made supporting the International Revolver Championships a very easy decision,” said Frank Brownell, CEO of Brownells.

The International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE) was founded in 1991 by Mike and Sharon Higashi, two long time shooters active in all the handgun sports. Envisioned as an alternative to the race towards ultra-customized pistols that was occurring in the other action shooting sports, the revolver-only competition of ICORE would allow even the most basic equipment to be used and still provide enjoyment and satisfaction.
