“Secure Firearm Products is honored this year to be a premier sponsor for the 20th Annual IRC. This is our sixth year sponsoring the match and the ICORE officials and IRC staff have been excellent, always making us feel welcome and part of a big family,” said Tammy Surgi of Secure Firearm Products.
The 20th Annual Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship takes place June 2-5 and will be hosted by the San Luis Obispo Sportsmen’s Association. The match will take place on the association's Hogue Action Pistol Range.
First held in 1992 with just 51 shooters in attendance, the Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship celebrates two decades of top level revolver competition this year. Over 200 of the best wheelgun shooters from across America and beyond are expected to compete.
“We're thrilled to have Secure Firearm Products returning not only as a sponsor, but a premier sponsor this year. They have been wonderful supporters of the match and bring a great deal of enthusiasm to the event, adding to the family-fun environment of the match,” said Ron Joslin of ICORE.
In addition to supporting the match as a sponsor, Secure Firearm Products will also be represented in the competition by team shooters Mark Itzstein, Doug Carden, the Surgi cousins, and junior shooters, Aaron and Louis, and company CEO David Surgi.
“Our junior competitors - and a few of us adults - cannot wait for June when we take the three-day road trip to Morro Bay, camp out and compete in the IRC. More than any other event, the IRC goes out of its way to make young shooters feel welcome. That's important to our family and we're really proud to support that kind of effort,” added Surgi.
