BERRYVILLE, Ark. – Following last year’s wildly successful Live Free Or Die state match, Pioneer Sportsmen Club in Dunbarton, New Hampshire, has announced that the Blockbuster-themed 2014 Smith & Wesson Live Free Or Die State IDPA Championship will take place October 17, 18 and 19.

In addition to determining the state title, the championship will also serve as the final leg of the popular King of New England contest. The 18th Annual Massachusetts State Championship and the New England Regional, both sponsored by Smith & Wesson, make up the first and second legs, respectively, of the series.

“IDPA at Pioneer has seen tremendous growth since the program was revamped last year and we’re continuing those efforts this year. Thanks once again to the generous support of title sponsor Smith & Wesson, the 2014 Live Free Or Die State IDPA Championship is a must attend event for New Hampshire’s expanding IDPA community,” said Jon Wolfe, match director for the championship.

Last year’s championship sold-out in record time and shooters are encouraged to mark their calendars. Online registration for the 2014 Smith & Wesson Live Free Or Die State IDPA Championship will take place on Monday, July 21 at

“There is no doubt that IDPA is thriving in New Hampshire and that is thanks to the hardworking volunteers at Pioneer Sportsmen Club who have built a great program and given New England an exciting new championship match no shooter wants to miss. Smith & Wesson is happy to contribute to the ongoing success of IDPA in the New England region,” said Paul Pluff of Smith & Wesson.
