In February of 2011 Rick Ryder and Brad Abney both current Metro Area Law Enforcement Officers began talking about Law Enforcement equipment sales in the Metro area. Brad, being a 12 year Law Enforcement veteran at the time and former business owner and Rick an 11 year Law Enforcement veteran with experience in running a Law Enforcement equipment store both thought there had to be a better way for it to be done.
So with the goals in mind to bring the best customer service, lowest prices, convenient location and hours to customers the two started out. Writing a 40 page business plan and spending three months on market analysis it was determined that the fast growing segment of the metro area population but the least serviced by equipment vendors was the Southwest Metro portion of the greater Denver Metro Area. In this area you have the convergence of three Counties and eight Municipalities Most over 20 miles from the closest Law Enforcement Equipment vendor.

How does that help the customer? It's simple, we don't just talk about the products we sell, these are products that we have used and have field tested. It is our goal to bring the highest quality and newest Public Safety products to the market at the lowest most competitive pricing. If we do not have it in stock we can get it.
