Accokeek, MD (January 25, 2021) –  Beretta USA is excited to announce its collaboration with the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) as the official Event Sponsor of the 2021 IDPA Beretta National Championship match.

The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the governing body of a shooting sport that simulates self-defense scenarios and real-life encounters.

Partnering with IDPA gives us the opportunity to join a community of passionate shooters competing in matches designed to train and develop fundamental skills for those who carry every day for duty or personal defense,” Nicola Lorenzi, Business Development Manager – Pistols, said.

The Tier 5 National Championship traditionally boasts approximately 400 shooters who compete in 18 stages over four days of competition as they run through a variety of intense defensive situations.

“We are so pleased to be working with a long-standing, world-class company like Beretta.  Our industry sponsors like Beretta are integral to the growth of shooting sports, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have their support for the IDPA National Championship match,“ Joyce Wilson, IDPA Executive Director, said.
