Kimber to Sponsor 2015 Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals

YONKERS, NY — Kimber, Mfg., Inc., the world's largest manufacturer of 1911-style pistols is proud to announce that it will be returning in 2015 as a sponsor of the 18th Annual Smith & Wesson International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) Indoor Nationals.

Kimber joins ACADEMI, Apex Tactical Specialties, Comp-Tac Victory Gear, FMG Publications, GLOCK, the National Rifle Association, XS Sight Systems and the title sponsor, Smith & Wesson, in supporting the IDPA Indoor Nationals. As part of their support, Kimber will be co-hosting the Safety Officer Appreciation Dinner and donating a Kimber 1911-style pistol for the match prize table.

Kimber will also be sending a member of its Shooting Team to compete in this year's match. The Kimber Shooting Team is comprised of its own engineering, manufacturing, marketing and sales employees.

"Kimber is honored to be the defensive pistol choice of so many American gun owners," said Richard Kirk, Kimber's head of marketing & communications. "It makes sense to support the IDPA and Smith & Wesson in helping to introduce recreational and competitive shooting sports to the thousands of new gun owners that emerge every year."

The Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championship is considered the official start of the IDPA season that draws over 300 of the best IDPA shooters to compete at the Smith & Wesson Shooting Sports Center in Springfield, Massachusetts.
