ACCOKEEK, MD –-(Ammoland.com)- Benelli’s goal of dominance in 3-Gun competition just got another boost with the announcement that Dianna Liedorff-Muller will lead the company’s new Team Benelli 3-Gun program in 2015.
With Liedorff-Muller at the helm and a team of renowned shooters on board with Team Benelli, the company brings both equipment and talent to bear in the popular competitive format.
As the premier shotgun of choice for many top 3-Gun competitors, Benelli has been sponsoring individual competitors for years, but 2015 will be the first time Benelli has sponsored a primary team.
“Di is a natural-born leader with immense talent, securing her position at the forefront of 3-gun,” said Tom Kaleta, Vice President of Marketing for Benelli USA. “Her passion for the sport and ability to encourage and coach others makes Di the ideal team captain. We look forward to a year full of victories for the Benelli 3-Gun team with Dianna at the helm.”
Liedorff-Muller, who recently retired after 22-years with the Tulsa Police Department, is a competition and defensive firearms instructor, outspoken 2nd Amendment advocate and noted television personality on shows like Outdoor Channel’s “Shooting Gallery.”
Liedorff-Muller has been competing in 3-Gun for Benelli for the last year and her shooting prowess put her in second place for two consecutive years in the 3-Gun Nation Lady Pro Series. Her “High-Lady” titles include USPSA Multi-Gun Open Ladies Champion and finalist in the 3-Gun nation shoot off since 2012. Her competitive spirit drove her to compete in 26 shooting events spanning 17 states during the 2014 3-Gun season shooting the Benelli M2.
“It’s such an honor to be named as captain of Team Benelli,” said Liedorff-Muller. “Not only do I get to run a shotgun that has virtually set the bar in 3-Gun, but I’m equally excited about the people behind the scenes. The customer service and personal aspect of Benelli is amazing and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
