****Official****2011 IRC Championship thread Morro Bay California

***UPDATE***
Just returning from the IRC. NVSA's performance was great. Brian Shot one of his best revolver matches ever. While he just missed placing (4th out of 33) in the "B" Class, he stayed focused shot a clean match (no mikes or procedural). He went on to finish higher than any other NVSA member attending this years match. Mark Barr (aka Mike Barr; for the IRC) Showed up and commanded all the "C" shooters, that they are going to have to go through him if they want the Limited Class Division Championship. Yes that is right Mark Barr (aka Mike Barr) stomped on all the other shooters in the "C" Limited to bring home the gold. Way to go Mark. Third was Mark Hicks who demonstrated to everyone North Valley Shooters know how to use speed loaders as well. He placed 3rd in Classic "C". Way to go Mark. Other NVSA shooters in attendance were Steve McCormick, Ernst Aufdenkamp, Charlie Severance, Mannie Clinnick, and Ty Hamby.

This was a fun Stage it was called Which way do I go?

I posted a couple of videos. I only took a few.

Hot Dang. Did you guys get to

Hot Dang. Did you guys get to shoot the classifiers this evening? If so, how did you do, and how did the moon clips work for you? All good on both counts I hope.

My last comment was a day

My last comment was a day ahead of time, as it was only Tuesday. DUH! Today is Wednesday, so you were going down today. Hopefully, you were able to shoot the classifiers today. We have been having horrendous weather up here today. Just checked the weather for SLO and it looks like you are going to be getting some rain on Sat and Sun. Sure hope not.

Just left the shooters

Just left the shooters meeting. Looks like it will be a fun match. Starting tomarrow on a more difficult stage. Which may play to our advantage. Better than doing it late in the day. I will check zero tomarrow morning and the we go shooting. I will update more later.

Shooting is over for me. With

Shooting is over for me. With the rain clouds opening up today, myself, Mark B. And Brian got the the range early. We lucked out and snuck in to the final 3 stages we had left. My last stage was shot as dismal as the first. Big thanks to Mark and Brian for the help geting down here and Earnst for the ride home. Tomarrow is prize day. I hope I win something cool. If you can shoot a revolver, you should be here. If your not at the IRC this year, you must come next year.

Thanks for posting the

Thanks for posting the summery Charlie. I think everyone that went will agree, it was a great match! We all had a great time! And the prize table, WOW! The prize table at the IRC is by order of finish within your division. I finished 20th overall Limited, my prize package was valued at over $1000.00! I passed up a few different guns and went with custom electronic ear plugs valued at $800.00, a Chrono, Mil-Tec Defense Pen, and a bag full of other stuff! All revolver shooters should plan on going next year. I know I am!

Brian

Oh yeah, I have a Chrono for sale!

Thanks Lynn. Next year, you

Thanks Lynn.

Next year, you will be on the NVSA squad with Brian and the rest of us for sure.  With any luck, we'll have close to a dozen on our squad.

See you on Sunday at Gridley. 

 

Anyone interested in buying my Ruger 22/45?  $275 cash.  They have it still in Morro Bay, but could ship it right to the buyer's FFL. I am saving for an auto loading shotgun for 3-gun... (my new game).  Check it out at http://www.ruger.com/products/2245BullBarrel/models.html  It lists for $335 from Ruger.

I was contacted by Chico CBS

I was contacted by Chico CBS affiliate about the IRC.  He received a press release from ICORE.  At first they were going to come out to the match Sunday, but wanted to do a piece today.  We got out to the range and they did a nice segment on the 6 pm news.  He said he thought that it would be repeated at 11pm.  I thought they had cut out my mention of NVSA but the reporter in the studio did say that we shoot the second Sunday and to look at the NVSA website for more information and contact.  The ICORE rep told me that the average person wouldn't understand the A,B,C classification system and what was in the press release was that I had placed 3rd place senior in the Classic division.  He said that he had heard about the IRC last year and wanted to do a story, but when he saw the press release this year he wanted to be sure to get it done.  See you all Sunday.  Mark Hicks

Bart, Way to go yourself! 

Bart,

Way to go yourself!  I saw what you did to those guys in USPSA down at Solano Targetmasters.  You pulled off a 2nd in Limited 10 against a tough crowd.  For those who wonder what I'm talkin about, check out Bart's results in the L-10 division here: http://www.actionpistol.org/target2011/06-June/tjun11.php?division=Combined

Check out some video of him smokin that Texas Star here: http://www.youtube.com/user/behightower

Great job Mr. Hightower!
