BERRYVILLE, Ark. – After a two year absence, New Hampshire’s state IDPA championship is back thanks to the generous support of companies like Comp-Tac Victory Gear.

The championship is set to take place October 18-20 and is being hosted by the Pioneer Sportsmen Club in Dunbarton, N.H.

“You can’t step on to an IDPA range and not find a number of shooters holstering their gun in a Comp-Tac rig. That’s because not only do they make great gear but they are one of the most dedicated companies in the industry when it comes to supporting IDPA competition,” said Ken Lambert, match director.

“Being an IDPA member and shooter I know that putting on major matches like New Hampshire’s Live Free Or Die State Championship takes a huge amount of work.
