Company Summary

We are in the business of acquiring and growing small manufacturers of hunting and shooting products. In a consolidating industry we leverage our access to distribution (distributors, big box & independant bricks and mortar and intenet retailers, domestic and international). Retail is eliminating small vendors, many of which have innovative products. Through acquistions & distribution agreements, we consolidate into our brands to gain access.
