Quantico Tactical, an apparel, gear and weapons retailer, opens its doors to Tennessee residents during a grand opening celebration July 25-27. Located at 397 Tiny Town Road between the tower and the tracks, the store serves military personnel, federal agencies, law enforcement, and the tactical enthusiast.

“We moved to our new, larger location to service both our retail and government customers. We were recently awarded a multi-year, billion dollar contract with the Defense Logistics Agency to provide equipment to military units. Our store expansion will allow us to support our federal government, state/local law enforcement and retail customers,” explains David Hensley, the company’s founder and president. The store sells handguns, rifles and accessories, magazines, ammunition, body armor, optics and sights, lights, knives, packs, duty gear, apparel and more.

“Most stores have good, better and best. We have better, best and over-the-top best. Whether this is your line of work, or your idea of fun, we have what you’re looking for.” Quantico Tactical is one of Smith & Wesson’s largest dealers, also boasting preferred dealer status with Magpul, Blackhawk!, Safariland and Tactical Assault Gear, all of which are available via the company’s DLA Contract and GSA Schedule.

The store is managed by Wes Schermerhorn, a retired Army veteran having served most of his career at Ft. Campbell.  He and his team will be welcoming customers to the new store July 25-27 with a live radio remote and free pulled-pork sandwiches made onsite in the company’s wood-fired smoker. Free limited edition Quantico Tactical t-shirts will be given to the first 100 customers on each of the three days, with door busters and great deals for everyone in attendance.

Founded in 2001 by a retired U.S. Marine Officer, Quantico Tactical has grown from a single store in Quantico, Virginia to eight retail stores near large military installations plus a state-of-the-art headquarters, distribution center and kitting facility which serves customers worldwide. In addition to its retail presence, Quantico Tactical provides the latest equipment to military and law enforcement agencies through the Defense Logistics Agency’s SOE Tailored Logistics Support (TLS) Program and on the GSA Schedule. The company is U.S. State Department-licensed for the export of weapons, munitions and related articles, a Strategic Ally Partner of the FBI National Academy Associates, a Corporate Sponsor of Concerns of Police Survivors, and a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business.
