HOW DID WE GET TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY?
2008 - started consulting with resellers to get units and agencies group discounts for their orders. There was a clear need when so many young troops were deploying, but having to purchase their own gear because the services' issued gear was less than effective. We started Scout Sniper Systems LLC. consulting for surveillance and Sniper projects for government bodies and private security firms
2009 - started selling Sniper and field gear including the first Multicam base with Multicam nylon covered military style ghillie suits. Expanded into working with executive security and small unit military training centers
2010 - launched our new site scoutsnipersystemsstore.com for consulting and opened an online surplus plus a free page for sharing gear for sale. The Gear Scout Facebook page grew rapidly as we had live interactive "Gear Quests" on Saturdays, and items for rapid sale after each livestream. The YouTube channel began to draw a presence, and out consulting and testing business more than quadrupled
2011 - reached over 60K followers on our Facebook page and went to the first SHOT Show for the business. We added five major brands, and continued with consulting and building the audience for both individual and agency sales. Overall not a bad year, but nothing was automated yet for direct sales
2012 - launched sss-store.com and added 6 brands. Continued the consulting part of the business and worked on a few projects for Ubi-soft, and Hollywood, all wrapped up in NDAs. We were instrumental in several quality control projects as new expectations for gear were made present to overhaul lightweight, versatile gear for the battlefield, in the wake of larger scale operations overseas entering their 10th year
2013 - added 144 brands following SHOT Show and sold over 620,000 pieces of gear. Page grew to over 200,000 followers on Facebook and we added PayPal as a payment method. We worked with several companies including Ubi-soft, A-TACS Camo, and private label gear makers to contribute to outreach efforts and building the physical uniforms used for marketing games such as Splinter Cell Blacklist
2014 - focusing on department orders on the ground, online orders got pretty stagnant but department sales grew over 3,000%. Because of an unending social campaign, our Facebook page grew to over 650,000 followers, and our YouTube channel had multiple viral videos. Towards the middle of the year, we began the process of focusing on a few major brands to discount for large agency orders, and made efforts to improve customer service for all clients. Around the end of the year, without warning our Facebook page was deleted by Facebook admins and a new page was started
2015 - Incorporated under NextGen Inc. and launched the website under the new URL tacticalgear.sale; and changed payment methods from PayPal to Authorize.net. Stood up our store in Columbus, GA enabling us to better serve our local community in addition to military and first responders around the nation. Our social presence grew and loyal followers rejoined our Facebook page
2016 - added Stripe to checkout allowing easier ordering with credit cards over the phone, and online, added and dropped a few major brands, restructured the site and renamed it
muricantacticalsales.com after receiving numerous complaints about having a .sale website instead of a .com. After regrowing our Facebook page to just over 236,000 followers, Facebook deleted our page once again. Even after filing several complaints through Facebook and the BBB, the ban remained in effect. YouTube also cancelled our channel
2017 - went back to tacticalgear.sale after a lot of deliberation and losing significant SEO battles for murican tactical sales, introduced payment by bitcoin and started working closer with outside social platforms, and launched the MISSION FIRST Teen Readiness Initiative to help challenged youth get into college and technical schools... and the best is yet to come
2018 - we sold 22 brands of gear in 44 lower states, 35 different countries, to domestic and allied military and Law Enforcement from city to federal level. We scaled down a bit in anticipation of Shot Show 2019, hoping to add some lesser known brands off of the beaten path. The way forward for us is going to be exactly that. The industry is very saturated with resellers so brands like TruSpec and 5.11 don't need us to resell for them. Look forward to seeing some new items that are harder to find and also new partnerships with some foreign allied companies who make great gear with no one to distribute inside the US. Our store became mostly a site to pick online orders from. We never advertised in our area (on purpose) but there was little point in keeping it when we couldn't keep items on the shelf for web fulfillment and the scale of what online sales were producing versus the store. We closed the store knowing that we would open again in the future
2019 - we added Chase Tactical, Grey Ghost Gear, and continued to seek out some more brands just starting up to give you access to more items not typically found discounted on the internet. We began building another site on a platform that sezzle can be integrated into, so that customers with high dollar orders can use the interest free financing option. Just for fun, we started another Facebook account, figuring it wouldn't last; and we were correct
2020 - we transitioned back to a .com under the name UScombatgear.com due to the ridiculously high number of people who still can't fathom using a branded extension which there are several of. With the masses not being able to keep up with the times, it forced another, what is seemingly permanent change. Our Facebook page that gained only about 6,600 followers was shut down, and just to hold our place online, we immediately started a new page
2021 - COVID took a toll on the business temporarily. It was easier to rebound when we were making America great again, but here we are with some interesting new policies that we're trying to work through and getting back to business as usual. Multiple sites for stores have been chosen and there will be four finished before the end of the calendar year. In September, our Instagram page was deleted by IG admins, without warning, and with no way to recover the account. We started a new one where we haven't made many posts, and put social media marketing on the backburner indefinitely. We'll ramp that up when we're in a position to go back to servicing individual orders
2022 - We began the year accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment to help answer the demand of our clients. Several entities asked, and we're always wanting to do whatever we can to enhance the support we offer. Currently, we have an app underway for individual orders that will only include on-hand gear for easy and quick fulfillment. We made an update to our logo at the request of many and began our "US Against the World" campaign. Our bid process is getting streamlined, and we are in the process of adding a few more brands to be announced soon. Federal contracting has taken off, and we are focusing on talent acquisition to grow the team so that equal attention can be given to large contracts, as well as smaller First Responder departments, small units, and really setting ourselves apart in the individual market. Although not all inclusive, that list is in order of precedence. We are also going to relaunch our channel soon, begin doing Gear Quest challenges, giveaways, and getting back to the roots of social media outreach beginning next calendar year following SHOT Show 2023
2023 - Our channel is launching the first week of the year with updates for policies, and laying out the road map for what's ahead. Most of the content is directed at the GSA, State, and County level government officials, but announcements will be made for individual buyers also
How do we call the business?
As of right now, we have suspended telephonic communication for individual customers, so that we may more efficiently answer the needs of more customers. We will NEVER use an answering service or automated system. Use the CONTACT US page to submit requests. Most are answered the same day.
Why did my order get refunded/ rejected?
In many cases, individual customers make purchases without reading our POLICIES. Depending on what policy was violated, that may result in your order being rejected. It only benefits you to contact us before placing an individual order.
I heard you only do business with agencies, can I still place an order with you guys?
You may absolutely place an order with us, however please read all policies and remember that the sales process is no different for individuals than it is for the way we handle agency orders. We are an acquisitions company, not direct sales so the flow of gear may be quite faster, or a bit slower depending on what you're ordering.
How do I know if something is in stock?
There are two ways to answer this question, and it's not either or; both apply.
#1 Use the contact us page to see about availability.
#2 Even though we do have a large selection of gear on hand, if you've checked the manufacturer website and they're currently out of stock, we most likely are as well. Typically dealers will run out before the manufacturer does regardless of what gear items you're looking for.
I ordered something but didn't receive a confirmation message?
Although not typical or frequently asked, we would like to mention that IF this happens, you need to contact us. You don't have to wait any longer than you feel necessary. If you feel like it's five minutes after your order or five days, it's up to you. If you reach out to us, we will respond to your message. We check our systems daily to ensure they're up and running, however the developers may be performing maintenance or installing updates which can slow or prevent an automated message being sent out.
