We are the only dealer in Minnesota for the following concealment products. Both of these products are fabulous options for carrying.



The Combination Holster is a 3 pocketed holster. The Holster can be used for right or left hand shooters. The 2 front pockets are the same size. The Combination Holster has a back pocket, directly behind the 2 front pockets. The back pocket can accommodate cash, badge, handcuffs or use your own imagination. The Combination Holster is for customers who require 1 holster for all their handguns. The Combination Holster comes in 3 sizes. Click here to learn more.


Concealment T


This sleevless holster t-shirt is made of 100% preshrunk cotton and has specially designed seams around the neck and arm holes for more support while carrying your weapon. The specially designed holster has a quilted pad sewn onto the shirt with an elastic band sewn over the pad to create a "cradle" for your weapon. Shirt comes in sizes S, M, L, XL. Holster comes in two sizes.

  • Large holster fits all Glocks, most large-framed semi-automatics, and all "J" Frame revolvers.
  • Small holster fits most small-frame semi-automatics.



Acquiring holsters can be a real sore spot. I have tried to get holsters in the past and found that many gun shops do not stock holsters. As a service to our customers, we now stock holsters for the popular J Frame, S&W, and Glock compact. Our stock will be expanded as demand dictates.

It is nearly impossible to stock every holster for all automatics and make any money at it. Good holsters are expensive and do not have a lot of mark-up. I like Galco because they are made from horse hide, not cow hide, and the quality is without peer. The holsters I stock are undercover inside the pants and Miami Classic. They seem to fit very well for the following list of automatics. I have actually put the gun into the holster to determine the fit. If the item is not in stock, it can take anywhere from two days to six weeks. You just need to call me for availability. I am competitive on pricing.


Glock 26-27-30-19-32-30
S&W 99 Compact 9MM
Bersa Fire Storm 9MM
Bertha 9000s 9MM

We showcase several holsters during the Permit to Carry classes so you can see what they look like and get the feel as to how they would work for you. We will special order women's gun purses and will be showcasing some examples in future classes.

Here are some links to the holsters we stock and/or can order. Check out our pricing before you buy!




AR15 & AR10 Parts

I stock a lot of hard to get springs, pins and pivots for AR15 and AR10's. I have most all small internal parts for the black gun. I shoot long range LR.308 1000 yards.


CCF Race Frames

We can help you build the ultimate Glock by installing either aluminum or stainless steel frames with normal Glock or 1911 feel. Check out their website at www.ccfraceframes.com. We sell them, we install them.


Taser International

We became a dealer for Taser International products because we realized there was a need for alternative methods of self-defense for those situations where you simply cannot carry a gun, or for persons who want a means to protect themselves, but are uncomfortable with carrying a handgun. We feel the TASER® C2™ is a great option.


The TASER® C2™ is a self-defense electronic control device. Electronic Control Devices (ECDs) use propelled wires to conduct energy to affect the sensory and motor functions of the nervous system. In addition, the TASER® C2™ can be used as a direct contact stun device. The TASER® C2™ uses a replaceable TASER® cartridge, containing compressed nitrogen, to deploy two small probes that are attached to the TASER® C2™ by insulated conductive wires with a maximum length of 15 feet. The energy can penetrate up to two cumulative inches of clothing or one inch per probe.

Advanced Features:

• Small, sleek ergonomic design

• Lightweight and easy to carry

• Lithium Power Magazine provides over 50 applications

• Available in five designer colors

• Stop attackers from up to 15 ft.
