We came, we saw, we conquered! We attended SHOT Show, in Las Vegas. And the week couldn't have gone by any faster.
We spent the week surrounded by the most innovative and relevant brands in our industry. Our booth was front and center (literally, we were in the lobby!) for activations with all of our highly popular ambassadors. It's not every day you can get a book signed by Jack Carr, shake hands with Andy Stumpf, and watch STL Joseph Garcia lead a K9 demo.
STL Joseph Garcia of the US CSAU and his Giant Schnauser
Joseph and his team lead high risk operations at some of America’s most dangerous prisons. His safety is on the line, which is why the right gear is most important. We’re honored that he chooses Gatorz for the protection of his vision. This year at the show, he performed a demo with his K9. He’s strong, fierce, and committed to protecting him while on duty. In this demo, he followed Joseph’s commands as they bit the dummy held by our Brand Manager, Andrew Fontes.
Former US Navy SEAL and owner of Dynamis Alliance, Dom Raso
Dom captivated the entire downstairs floor as he demonstrated his quick combat moves. He is always in his Gatorz because having the right protection is essential.
Justin Melnick, of CBS hit show SEAL Team and his number one pup, Dita
That’s right! You’ll see Gatorz on Justin, on and off set. Check him out wearing our new Delta style. Dita too! They’ve got new episodes airing beginning on February 26.
Clint Emerson, former US Navy SEAL and author of 100 Deadly Skills
Clint stopped by and shared with everyone why Gatorz have been a critical piece of his gear. He trusts Gatorz from his days as a SEAL to his current career in teaching safety and security skills for home and work.
That's me! Finding the balance between knowing these dogs can destroy a human if needed, but also wanting pet them for hours.
Former US Marine Raider, Nick Koumalatsos
Nick is pop-u-lar! He signed copies of his book, Excommunicated Warrior, and had a constant line of people excited to meet him. He’s been wearing Gatorz since the beginning, and is committed to Gatorz for life. He and his wife Alison are expecting a baby this summer. We’re voting team girl!
Former US Navy SEAL, Eddie Gallagher with Gatorz Ambassador Dom Raso, and Brand Manager Andrew Fontes.
On this trip, Eddie appeared on Andy Stumpf’s Cleared Hot Podcast to discuss how his military career began though his experiences being charged with war crimes, and subsequently acquitted in July of 2019.
