The Hogue Action Pistol Range, site of this year’s ICORE Int’l Championships, is the premier action pistol range on the West Coast. A modern facility with 10 shooting bays, the Hogue Range is part of a large complex of shooting sports facilities operating on a former U.S. Army test range located between San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay, California. The public rifle range, located just North of the Hogue Action Pistol Range, is shown below. This is a beautiful place to shoot, with moderate weather year-round. You’ll find good hotels and excellent campgrounds nearby. The San Luis Obispo region is a great weekend destination for the whole family, with beaches and tourist attractions nearby. Visit the San Luis Obispo Sportsmen’s Assocation (SLOSA) website for more information on the Hogue Range and adjacent shooting facilities.

ICORE — All Revolvers, All the Time
The International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE) was founded in 1991 by Mike and Sharon Higashi, long time active shooters in all the handgun sports. Envisioned as an alternative to the “arms race” that was occurring in the other action shooting sports at that time, a revolver-only competition would allow even the most basic equipment to be used and still provide enjoyment and satisfaction.
