GLOCK, the nation’s leading pistol provider to American law enforcement agencies and maker of some of the most popular pistols used in the shooting sports, is back as a major sponsor of the International Defensive Pistol Association’s (IDPA) 2013 IDPA U.S. National Championship.

This year’s championship takes place September 19 thru 21 on the ranges of the U.S. Shooting Academy in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and officials expect to draw over 300 of the sport’s top competitors.

“GLOCK remains one of the most popular pistols among IDPA members, both for competition and for concealed carry,” said Joyce Wilson, executive director of IDPA. “We’re very pleased to once again welcome GLOCK as a major sponsor and one of the companies whose generosity is helping to make the 2013 U.S. National Championship one of the best.”

“IDPA has provided a sport that tests shooter capabilities and familiarity with their pistol. It takes a personal commitment and a whole lot of practice to get a shooter to the point where they can master these real-life scenarios,” stated GLOCK VP of Sales and Marketing, Josh Dorsey.

In addition to GLOCK, the 2013 IDPA U.S. National Championship is supported by a who’s who of firearms and shooting sports industry leaders, including the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Brownells, Comp-Tac Victory Gear, Harris Publications, Nighthawk Custom, Ruger, Safariland, Smith & Wesson, Taurus, White Hat Holsters and Wilson Combat.
