BERRYVILLE, Ark. – One of IDPA's biggest championship events just got bigger thanks to the support of firearms industry icon Colt's Manufacturing Company and the hearing protection firm EAR-East, which according to officials with the International Defensive Pistol Association have both signed on as sponsors of this weekend's Carolina Cup.

Colt and EAR-East join Remington Arms and Smith & Wesson, the Carolina Cup's two major sponsors, as well as Blade-Tech, Comp-Tac, Federal Premium Ammunition, GlockTriggers.com, Panteao Productions, Precision Delta, Safariland and Trijicon in supporting the championship.

Colt and EAR-East will each sponsor one of the 16 stages in the match. The Carolina Cup takes place June 14-16 in Oxford, North Carolina with over 370 of IDPA's top competitors expected to attend.

“With the Carolina Cup just days away, excitement for the match is building,” said Scott Ruby, sponsor coordinator for the Carolina Cup. “This year we'll have a record number of shooters competing and that's thanks to the great support we've received from the industry and companies like Colt and EAR-East.”

The Carolina Cup is one of IDPA's three major championships and will be held at The Range in Oxford, where shooters are expected to put upwards of 75,000 rounds downrange in pursuit of titles in Custom Defensive Pistol, Enhanced Service Pistol, Stock Service Pistol, Stock Service Revolver and Enhanced Service Revolver, the five divisions in IDPA competition.

A competitor slot to the Carolina Cup is one of the most highly sought after in the sport due to the match's reputation of providing one of the most challenging courses of fire. Stages are known for their creativity and how they test a shooter's entire skill set. Due to both the match's popularity and the explosive growth in IDPA membership, the Carolina Cup has been sold out since early March.
