How T.REX ARMS Got Started

In 2013, Lucas Botkin made his first Kydex product — a magazine carrier — using a toaster oven, phone books, and a razor blade. After a few online sales, he launched a website and named the fledgling enterprise T.REX ARMS. 

The company expanded quickly, evolving into a family partnership that employs more than thirty people and services civilian, military, and law enforcement customers around the world. As our vision expanded, we began selling a curated array of optics, weapon upgrades, body armor, and medical gear to equip the modern-day minute man. Dedicated to relentless innovation, we’ve developed a CQB target system, designed a unique battle belt, created optic-mounting solutions, and continually improved existing product lines. 

But we’ve never wanted to just sell tactical gear. Our ultimate goal is to educate, inspire, and equip 21st-century individuals to respect life, take responsibility, and seek truth — not trends. Using the revenue from the business, we’ve developed a private range to shoot hundreds of educational videos, building a social media following of over a million subscribers. We push pro-Second Amendment stances and advance freedom wherever we can, spearheading a political effort in 2019 that saved Tennesseans more than $400,000 per year. 

We recognize that this company is a stewardship. It isn't ours. It's God's. We’re His servants, and we’ve always believed that He will bring growth as we strive to honor Him. Every new product, every completed video, and every satisfied customer is simply a way to bring Him glory through excellence and service.

While we owe all of our success to God, we’re also indebted to you, our customers and supporters. People who take this mission of protecting the Second Amendment seriously. Who educate their neighbors and their friends in principles of freedom. Who choose to buy our products and trust our gear. We know that we can’t go anywhere without all of you supporting us, buying from us, and standing behind us. 

We have a long way to go as a business, an industry, and a nation. There’s no end of opportunities. Our next year as a business will include new products, new initiatives, and continual improvement to our systems and thinking. We know there’s still a lot of work to do, but we expect that. We’re just getting started.
