I am a horrible blogger. Mental note, need to post up far more often...
Just a couple updates.
All of the financial documents have been filed with the State of Missouri and several manufacturers and distributors of VERY good equipment have a copy of our license. Many have some decent initial buy-ins, typically $500.
First order as a company was placed with Ace Cases (www.acecase.com) who are purveyers of VERY nice bags and holsters. It was a fund raiser for the Liberal Gun Club (www.theliberalgunclub.org) and $90 was raised for the club via Pro Range Bag purchases. These bags are made here in Missouri, are VERY high quality and feature three pistol 'rugs' and a removable magazine holding shooting pad. All seams are double stitched, all velcro is industrial quality and all zippers are reenforced.
Another great company is Unique AR's, (www.unique-ars.com) who make freefloat handguards for AR-platform firearms. Their design is very good, they use a proprietary barrel nut that is easy to install and the handguards are all made of high-strength aluminum with custom cut outs. If you buy one through my link or because you saw it recommended here, please do me a favor and let them know that "Olsen Training Group" sent you.
Maxpedition (http://www.maxpedition.com) is another company that we will be selling. Their high end gear bags and morale patches will be available soon and I will post here as soon as they become available as well as what we will be stocking. I can get them for less than MSRP.
For survival supplies, we will be a stocking Thrive merchant. More info on that, my lovely wife will be running that portion of the business.
As well as running firearms safety/CCW training I will be building AR uppers for sale and will be selling black powder cap-and-ball pistols. AR uppers will be built around Aero Precision/Surplus Ammo stripped uppers, barrels from a few different sources (Alpha Shooting Sports, Black Hole Products, SSE Machining) and Midwest Industries handguards. The Cap-n-ball pistols will be Armi San Marcos gift sets and single pistols.
Exciting stuff is coming!
