Beretta Adds Lynda Turnbull to Professional Shooting Team Roster

Accokeek, MD - Beretta is excited to announce that Lynda Turnbull, a renowned professional pistol shooter, has joined Team Beretta as a part of the pistol team segment.

With ten years of competition under her belt, Turnbull joins the team with a USPSA 2-Gun Ladies National Champion title. She also has High Lady Champion titles from recent USPSA 3-Gun Nationals Championships, the IPSC Extreme Euro Championship, and the 2016 IPSC Handgun World Shoot. Turnbull was also recently a part of the IPSC Women’s USA team.

Lynda began as a firearms instructor for LT Training in 2019 and has trained some of the top competitive shooters in the industry and took part in the training of actor Keanu Reeves for his movie, John Wick. She recently graduated from Dixie Technical College with a degree in CNC Machining to further her love of building custom 1911/2011 pistols.

“Beretta has been proudly supporting practical shooting worldwide by sponsoring events and partnering with best-in-class shooters,” Nicola Lorenzi, Pistol Product Manager, said. “Our passion is driven by these athletes that are inspiring us, and they represent an example for everybody at the range and in everyday life. Pursuing excellence is our mission, and with this in mind, we are beyond excited to announce the official collaboration with Lynda Turnbull, an international Pro Shooter competing in multi-disciplines and being one of the best lady shooters in the USPSA/IPSC today. We welcome Lynda to our Pro Team, and we look forward to celebrating her wins this year.”

Turnbull joins a growing Beretta pistol team established over the past several years, including top competitive athletes JJ Racaza, Jessica Hook, and Ben Hardt. Beretta looks forward to further expanding the pistol division of Team Beretta in the next few years and working with these renowned competitors to develop new and innovative products that offer shooters worldwide the best experience on the range.

Turnbull will be competing with the 92X Performance and is the current face of the newly launched Beretta APX A1 pistol.

Built on the heritage of the original APX platform that passed MHS testing for the US Army, the APX A1 delivers a crisp, class-dominating trigger, improved ergonomics, aggressive slide serrations, and MRDS Optics cuts right out of the box.

The ultimate convergence of form, function, and fortitude, the Beretta APX A1 takes the proven ergonomics, reliability, and accuracy of the APX family and delivers a superior firing solution – from the casual shooter to the most demanding professionals in the world.

The Beretta APX A1 Full Size is now available in 10, 15, and 17-round magazine capacities and retails for an MSRP of $529. The new APX A1 will be debuted at the upcoming 2022 NRA Annual Meeting in Houston, TX, on May 27-29, 2022.

Swing by the Beretta booth at the NRA Annual Meeting (#1831) to meet Turnbull and some of her fellow Team Beretta athletes and be one of the first individuals to interact with the brand-new Beretta APX A1 pistol.
