Carl Junction, Mo. –-( Fresh off their recent success at The 2010 Bianchi Cup, The Secure Firearm Products Shooting Team grabbed two Top 5 Finishes at The 2010 Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championships (IRC). SFP Shooting Team members, and cousins, Louis and Aaron Surgi of Webb City, Mo. finished 4th and 5th respectively in the Junior Limited Division.

Organized by the International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE), and held at Hogue Action Pistol Range at the San Luis Obispo Sportsmen's Association, the IRC drew more than 200 top revolver shooters, representing 22 states and six foreign nations. Titles were awarded in the Open, Limited and Retro divisions with scoring based on time and accuracy, where time penalties are accrued for misses and shots outside the x-ring.

Louis Surgi finished the 12 stage course of fire in 4th Place with a time of 677.94 seconds while Aaron Surgi posted a final time of 804.23 to capture 5th Place. The cousins made their team and their families proud by capturing Top 5 Finishes at a national event like this. SFP Team Member Mark Itzstein finished 9th overall out of 222 competitors with a final score of 284.59. Congratulations to Louis, Aaron and Mark on their fine performances.

The International ­Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE) was founded in 1991 by Mike and Sharon Higashi, two longtime 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.
