Brownells – The World’s Largest Supplier of Firearms Accessories and Gunsmithing Tools™ − is continuing its commitment to the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) by sponsoring the 2013 Smith & Wesson Live Free Or Die State IDPA Championship.

Brownells joins Apex Tactical Specialties, Comp-Tac Victory Gear, iMarksman, New England Tactical, RangeLog, Ruger, SIG SAUER, Taurus and Smith & Wesson, the title sponsor of the match, as one of the main sponsors of the sold out championship event slated to take place October 18-20 at the Pioneer Sportsmen Club in Dunbarton, N.H.

“If there’s a competitive shooter that doesn’t know of, and buy from Brownells I don’t know who it is, and that’s because Brownells has been a longtime sponsor of matches like the Smith & Wesson Live Free Or Die State IDPA Championship,” said Ken Lambert, match director. “We greatly appreciate all that Brownells does for the shooting sports and are proud to announce them as a major sponsor of this year’s championship.”

“We at Brownells believe strongly in supporting the shooting sports and the “Live Free or Die” match is one of the great events for IDPA shooters. We’re honored to be a part of it,” said Matt Buckingham, president of Brownells.

In addition to determining the New Hampshire state title, the match will also serve as the final leg of the King of New England contest presented by Apex Tactical. The 17th Annual Massachusetts State Championship and the New England Regional, both sponsored by Smith & Wesson, make up the first and second legs, respectively, of the newly announced series.
