The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) announced that Remington Arms Company, one of America’s oldest and most respected firearms makers, will be a major sponsor of the 2012 IDPA National Championships.
“The name Remington needs no introduction, especially to IDPA members who are more than familiar with this iconic American brand. Dating back to its founding in 1816, Remington’s commitment to the shooting sports is measured not in years or decades, but centuries, and we are proud to count them among the major sponsors of this year’s IDPA National Championships,” said Robert Ray, membership and marketing director for IDPA.
As a gold level sponsor of the match Remington joins a list of the shooting sports industry’s who’s who, including ACADEMI, Comp-Tac Victory Gear, Cheaper Than Dirt!, CrossBreed Holsters, CZ-USA, GLOCK, GlockTriggers.com, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Smith & Wesson, Wilson Combat and Woolrich Elite Series.
As part of their support, Remington will sponsor two of the 16 stages in the course of fire at this year’s National Championships. Additionally, Remington will be represented in the competition by Carlos Martinez.
The 2012 IDPA National Championships will take place September 19-22 at The Range in Oxford, N.C. As the pinnacle event of the IDPA competitive season, the match will draw more than 300 top shooters vying for the coveted title of National Champion in Custom Defensive Pistol, Enhanced Service Pistol, Stock Service Pistol, Stock Service Revolver and Enhanced Service Revolver, the five divisions in IDPA competition.
