    Very nice shop. They also make their own Crossbreed-style IWB holsters for reasonable prices.

    Great store with great staff that will actually listen to you as a customer and try to find the right gun, not just one that will make him alot of $$$.
    He also offers CCW and disaster preparedness classes.

    The three Mikes work there; Michael, the owner, "Senior Mike", the older fellow who knows his stuff about finding a gun that fits you, and "Holster Mike", who makes his own Kydex and leather holsters in the back and is the Glock Armorer for the store. These three run a very tight ship and have a decent selection. The awesome thing is that if they don't have it, they will find it, even if it's at another store. In addition they will flat out show you their price for a gun if you ask. Straight over to the computer and , "Look, right there is our price, a little bit of shipping and 10% and your cost is...." Right there on the calculator in front of you.

    "Senior Mike" is a firm believer as am I that you really need to try a bunch of handguns before you know which one is right for you. It could be the greatest pistol in the world but, if it doesn't fit your hand and grip then it's useless to you. He will let you handle every pistol he has to help you find one you like.

    Michael, the owner, is a great guy and has been reloading and shooting since he was a kid. He is a Dillon rep and a HUGE Dillon fan. He is extremely knowledgeable about reloading and will give you a no BS breakdown of reloading; costs, equip, etc. This is great if you are just getting in to reloading and don't know where to start really.

    "Holster Mike" is the armorer and holster maker for the company. I have one of his IWB holsters I wear daily for concealed carry. I got him to extend the leather a bit so my grip wouldn't rub against my side without an undershirt, "No Problem" he says. The leather is extremely comfortable. In addition they install sights (had my Trijicons installed on my FNH FNX) and also can have other work done by their web of specialty armorers. Recently I had my Remington 12 gauge shotgun barrel threaded and had the cone improved in a little over a week turn around. Also they have an expert Cerakote painter they work with and does a very nice job, some of his work is on display at the shop.

    Just to keep going, they are one of the only dealers that carries Black Rifle Company, a local AR manufacturer. If you haven't seen his new compensator and have been considering one, it's worth checking out and it's a mere $80, almost half price of the Battlecomp.

    I don't work at MK Tactical but, everytime I go in their I am treated like family. I am a former Marine firearms instructor and if I can answer a question one of the guys can't their is no negative looks, no dismissive attitudes, they are fully committed to improving the community and giving their customers the most knowledgeable advice they can.

    I enjoy going there everytime, while they can get busy at times, they remind me of cruise missiles in that they will continue researching and researching until they find what you are looking for. I take their time advise as gold. Mike, the holster maker, is committed and worked with me on several holsters I use for all of my firearms for concealed carry. I use his IWB holster for all of my carry needs and they are comfortable and made to work. Recently, taken a pistol course and it ran perfectly fine from day 1. Deal with MK Tactical with no issues at all, great people, including the dog, which strangely points you to the Glock section of the pistol area all the time. I think it is a conspiracy but they are all saying that is just the way the dog is.

    I have been going in there since he first opened shop. Always great service. Two weeks ago I was there and I purchased $40.00 in misc. The owner thanked me for doing business at his shop. I had not heard anything like that since 30 years ago. I expect this gun shop to go far, it already has in the short time it has been there.

    I took my chl class with them, the owner is a great guy! Haven't stopped by the shop since it's out of my way. Heard they were trying to open a range when I took the class.

    I bought my salute steel target from them last october, and had an issue with a weld on the stand. Took it in and they replaced the part right then and there no waiting. Great guys!

    I took my CHL classes there and that was fine. Also bought a LC9 and later a Sig P238 from them.
    Excellent pricing on both purchases. Good vibes from all in the shop.

    They recently got a Class III license, and there should be a great selection of suppressors pretty soon.

    What happened to the dude that makes holsters? He's cool, they're all cool. Don't know about the new guy though.

    Great shop, great staff, I took my Oregon and Utah CHL class there, I felt the classes were very good and well put together. Michael and his staff are alway polite, and friendly and Professional. I also took both of their live fire defensive pistol courses this summer, I learned alot and had a great time. I would recomend Mktactical to anyone looking to take a class or purchase a firearm.



    Regards

    Have been looking for a holster for my XD-tlr1 combo, and went into the shop to see if the holster guy could come through. Very thorough with all the options and everything. 1 1/2 hours later get a call the holster's ready, swing by, and it's everything I could have wanted Great shop

    Michael at MK tactical is great. He will take care of you and IIRC transfers were around $25. I did a few lowers through him and had no issues. Little bear was good when I used him as well but also got the feeling a couple times that it was more of a bother than a business. I never had a bad experience but think he may have been getting tired of it. That was a couple years ago.

    I like the guys @ MK but haven't done any business with them. They're usually the lowest prices on Gungenie instant quote for my area.
