AK Accessories: Tapco has some hidden gems

  by Rob Kay Tapco has had a huge presence at the SHOT Show of late, possibly because it’s owned by the Freedom Group, aka Remington which it purchased in 2012.

RS Regulate

  by Rob Kay I formerly worked in Silicon Valley where entrepreneurship and the passion to create technology are absolute necessities to succeed in building a company.
