PRLog - Jun. 7, 2011 - LOS OSOS, Calif. — Team Smith & Wesson’s Josh Lentz of Northampton, Pa. won 10 of 14 stages as he dominated the field on his way to winning the Classic division title at the 20th Annual Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship this weekend in San Luis Obispo, Calif.

Leading the Classic division field from start to finish, Lentz placed 18th overall in the match with a final time of 290.89 seconds, putting him over 54 second ahead of his nearest competitor.

“Josh is among the rising stars in revolver competition. Last year he posted a very strong fourth place finish in the Limited division and now he’s our IRC champion in the Classic division. I think this is the first of many title wins we’ll see from Josh,” said Ron Joslin of ICORE.

Second place in the Classic division went to Craig Buckland, the defending champion and Team Smith & Wesson member from Sandisfield, Mass., who won two stages with a final time of 345.23 seconds. Cliff Walsh of St. Petersburg, Fla. took third with a time of 361.03.

Rounding out the top five were Troy Mattheyer of Ellis, Kan. who took fourth with one stage win and a time of 365.72, and Harold Nicholson of Norman, Okla. in fifth with a time of 371.72 seconds.

Among the senior shooters competing in the division, Cedric Yoshimura of Simi Valley, Calif. won the Senior Classic division title with a time of 448.16 while Roger Reid of Bentonville, Ark. won the Super Senior title in a time of 434.34 seconds.

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 20th Annual Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship drew more than 230 top revolver shooters, representing 26 states and three foreign nations. Titles were awarded in the Open, Limited or Classic divisions with scoring based on time and accuracy where time penalties are accrued for misses and shots outside the x-ring.
