Welcome to Tactical Cowboy Outdoors, where our journey began as a friendly challenge between two firefighters in 2006 and has since evolved into a thriving enterprise. Originally known as Kenny’s Guns, we underwent a transformation to Fully Loaded before becoming the dynamic force we are today. Learn more about us and our history below.
About Us In The Beginning
The story commenced with a bet around the bay table, where our founder dared to obtain a Federal Firearms License (FFL) for a home-based business. The stakes were high, with one firefighter pledging to cover the initial fee if successful. To everyone’s surprise, just 3-4 months later, the FFL was granted, marking the inception of Kenny’s Guns.
At Tactical Cowboy Outdoors, we believe in giving back to the community that has supported us throughout our journey. Our commitment extends beyond providing exceptional products and services – we actively engage in community involvement, particularly in supporting local youth athletics.
Year after year, we take pride in donating numerous items to various youth athletic programs for their fundraising activities. Whether it’s equipment, gear, or other valuable items, we are dedicated to contributing to the success and well-being of the next generation.
Our involvement in local youth athletics aligns with our core values, emphasizing the importance of teamwork, discipline, and healthy competition. We understand that youth sports play a crucial role in shaping character, fostering leadership skills, and promoting a sense of community among participants.
By donating to these fundraising activities, we aim to alleviate financial burdens on youth athletic programs, enabling them to provide enriching experiences for young athletes. Whether it’s supporting a soccer team, baseball league, or any other youth sports organization, Tactical Cowboy Outdoors is honored to be a part of the journey that helps nurture the potential of our community’s youth.
Our commitment to community involvement goes beyond the transactions within our store walls; it reflects our genuine passion for creating a positive impact on the lives of those around us. We invite you to join us in supporting local youth athletics and witness the positive changes we can achieve together. At Tactical Cowboy Outdoors, our “About Us” narrative is not just about products – it’s about building a stronger, more vibrant community for everyone.
Our unwavering commitment to community involvement at Tactical Cowboy Outdoors has not only resonated locally but has also garnered national attention as people learn more about us. The heart of our mission lies in supporting local youth athletics through regular donations of numerous items for their fundraising activities.
In 2018, Tactical Cowboy Outdoors found itself thrust into the national spotlight when CNN featured and the local news channel WTVQ 36 our story, highlighting our unique philanthropic efforts. The focal point of this attention was a distinctive initiative that involved donating and raffling an AR-15 to support the local girls’ travel softball team.
The genesis of this feature can be traced back to a local lady who, initially disconcerted by our involvement of guns in youth activities, sparked a conversation that resonated on a broader scale. Her concerns prompted a deeper exploration of our motives and methods, ultimately leading to the recognition of a nuanced approach to firearm engagement within our community.
Rather than shying away from the controversy, we embraced the opportunity to engage in a dialogue about responsible gun ownership and education. This national spotlight became a platform for us to articulate our commitment to safety, training, and the careful integration of firearms into community initiatives.
The CNN feature served as a catalyst for discussions on the intersection of sports, philanthropy, and responsible gun culture. It allowed us to address misconceptions and emphasize the importance of fostering a balanced perspective on firearm usage, particularly in the context of supporting local youth activities.
