Brownells – The World’s Largest Supplier of Firearms Accessories and Gunsmithing Tools − will be one of the major sponsors of the 2013 IDPA U.S. National Championship, according to an announcement by officials with the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA).
Hosted by the U.S. Shooting Academy in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the 2013 IDPA U.S. National Championship will take place September 19 thru 21 and is again expected to draw over 300 of the sport’s top shooters. Brownells joins Taurus and the National Shooting Sports Foundation as a gold level sponsor of the event.
“As one of the industry’s great family-owned businesses, Brownells has always been committed to giving back to the shooting sports,” said Joyce Wilson, executive director of IDPA. “Thanks to the generosity of Frank and Pete Brownell, and all the folks who work tirelessly to make Brownells a favorite supplier to competition shooters, the shooting sports are thriving – especially IDPA.”
In addition to supporting the IDPA Nationals, Brownells has over the years been one of the most active corporate sponsors of IDPA competitions, helping matches at every level.
“The IDPA is one of the premier shooting sports organizations in the world,” said Brownells President/COO, Matt Buckingham. “It is really our privilege to have our name associated with such a great event. I’d encourage anyone with an interest in competitive, practical pistol shooting to check out the IDPA.”
