Whatever your goals—winning a match, protecting your family and yourself, defending your community, or just hitting the target every time, the 2011® will help you achieve your best and win.

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – Hoppe’s, the No. 1 name in gun care, and STI Firearms, makers of the 2011®, The World’s Best Shooting Handguns are proud to announce a partnership.

"We are excited to announce a product partnership between STI and Hoppe’s,” said Laurie Kokoruda, Senior Product Manager of Hoppe’s. “The two legacy brands are a natural fit, and when joined together, they offer a remarkable customer experience.

“STI Firearms manufactures the World’s Best Shooting Handguns, the 2011® and Hoppe’s is the market leader in gun care products. Hoppe’s Black was the obvious choice for the 2011® because it is designed to withstand the most extreme conditions, which 2011® pistols are put through every day.”

STI Firearms will begin using Hoppe’s products in their shop, and by September, every 2011® will ship with a sample of Hoppe’s Black included.

Whatever your goals—winning a match, protecting your family and yourself, defending your community, or just hitting the target every time, the 2011® will help you achieve your best and win.

“We launched the “To Shoot it is to Love it” 2011® Experience Campaign in 2019 to partner with dealers, retailers and events throughout the United States,” said Tony Pignato, CMO for STI Firearms. “That experience places our 2011® handguns into the hands of consumers to show them what makes the 2011® the World’s Best Shooting Handgun. We are thrilled to include Hoppe’s with every gun, so customers can experience the World’s Best Shooting Handguns cleaned and lubed by the No. 1 name in gun care products.”
