Founded in 2001 in Quantico VA

Our beginning starts in 2001 when Marine Corps Major David Hensley, while stationed at Marine Corps Base Quantico, opened a gun and gear store in the town of Quantico, VA. The small part-time store, opened Wednesday evenings and Saturdays, quickly gained an excellent reputation among the Military, Federal Agents and State/Local Law Enforcement throughout Northern VA and the DC area.

While facing retirement from the Marines in 2004, David mapped out a vision for Quantico Tactical:

  • Become a leading supplier of weapons and equipment to the Military, Federal Agencies, and State/Local Law Enforcement and to increase the quality and variety of gear into the Marine Corps Exchange
  • Deliver unmatched value and exceptional customer service to our customers.
  • Remain honest and ethical in all of our dealings, remain loyal and fair to our partners while never losing sight of our customers, the importance of their mission and the sacrifices they make.

Since David's retirement from the Marine Corps in 2004, Quantico Tactical has operated its retail storefront, web sales and government operations as one company – Quantico Tactical. After fourteen years, we have come to the conclusion that we can better serve all of our customers by having two companies; one focused solely on retail and web customers and a second specializing only on providing equipment and logistics solutions to government customers.

Quantico Tactical now focuses solely on providing equipment and logistics solutions to military, federal agencies, state/local law enforcement and private security.
