Beretta USA and IDPA Go Together like Peanut Butter and Chocolate

The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the governing body of a shooting sport that simulates self-defense scenarios and real-life encounters. Founded in 1996 as a response to the desires of competitive and defensive shooters worldwide, the organization now has a membership of more than 24,000, including members in 74 foreign countries.

“Beretta USA is excited to support IDPA as Nationals Match Sponsor for the second year in a row. The partnership with IDPA highlights our passion for excellence and performance, especially in the competition world. Our mission is to introduce more and more people to this fantastic sports discipline while also promoting firearms education across the United States.”

Nicola Lorenzi, Pistol Product Manager

2022 IDPA Nationals Location

The Tier 5 National Championship match usually hosts approximately 400 shooters. They’ll compete in 16 stages over three days of tough competition as they run through various intense defensive situations at the exclusive Cameo Shooting and Education Complex in scenic Grand Junction, Colorado. For example, stages often include real-life elements such as vehicles. Scheduled for September 22nd through the 24th, this year’s IDPA National Championship will allow competitors to utilize the most popular method of concealed carry: appendix carry.

“Last year, Beretta exceeded our expectations as event sponsors. They were a pleasure to work with, and we know they bring world-class support to matches like ours. We couldn’t put on matches like our National Championship without leading industry sponsors, and we are thrilled that Beretta is joining us again this year. With their support and participation, we know that this will be our most exciting and prestigious match yet.”

Joyce Wilson, IDPA Executive Director
