BERRYVILLE, Ark. – The sold-out 2014 Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championship continues to pick up support as the Self Defense Association (SDA) is the latest to sign on as a major sponsor.

SDA is an exclusive association consisting of concealed carry permit holders. SDA caters to these concealed carry permit holders by providing additional training and education resources, discount programs tailored to the concealed carry holder and up to $250,000 self-defense coverage.

SDA joins Apex Tactical Specialties, Blade-Tech, Brownells, Colt, Comp-Tac Victory Gear, CORBON, FMG Publications,, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Nighthawk Custom, Panteao Productions, Rand Brands, Wilson Combat and Smith & Wesson, the title sponsor, in supporting the match.

“We want to thank the Self Defense Association for their ongoing support of IDPA competition and welcome them as a major sponsor of the 2014 Smith & Wesson Indoor Nationals,” said Robert Ray, membership and marketing director for IDPA.

As part of their support, the Self Defense Association will host the Thursday night hospitality and registration suite for the benefit of all competitors attending the match.

“SDA is proud to sponsor IDPA. We believe in the continual training in the safe use of firearms and IDPA is a great organization for everyone that has a concealed carry permit to join to become more proficient with their handguns,” said Darryl Swagerty of the Self Defense Association.

Now in its 17th year, the Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals is one of the shooting sports’ most popular events, thanks to broad industry support from companies like the Self Defense Association.

The match is scheduled to take place February 20-22 on the indoor ranges of the Smith & Wesson Shooting Sports Center in Springfield, Massachusetts. More than 300 of the sport’s best shooters are expected to compete for titles in Custom Defensive Pistol, Enhanced Service Pistol, Stock Service Pistol, Stock Service Revolver and Enhanced Service Revolver, the five divisions within IDPA.
