About us

Welcome to Tac Essentials! Founded in 2023 by Hunter Lewis, Tac Essentials was born out of a unique opportunity and a passion for outdoor and tactical gear. After graduating with a business marketing degree from NC State, Hunter inherited a substantial inventory from a relative who unexpectedly closed their store. Seizing this chance, Hunter combined his business acumen and family background in inventory management and logistics to create Tac Essentials.

Located in North Carolina, Tac Essentials is dedicated to providing high-quality tactical gear and outdoor equipment. We are excited to announce plans to open our first physical store in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in late 2024. Until then, we are committed to delivering your orders directly from our own inventory and through drop shipping, ensuring you receive your gear as quickly as possible.

Our Mission

At Tac Essentials, our mission is simple: to equip our customers with the best outdoor and tactical gear available. We strive for excellence in everything we do, from our comprehensive inventory management to our fast and reliable shipping processes. Our website features a live view of current stock status, allowing you to shop with confidence knowing that what you see is what's available.
