Legion Defense Solutions was born years ago from a need and founded with the idea that quality American made gear should work to the advantage of the client.
I was raised rural. Firearms were very much a part of daily life. I don’t recall a time when they weren’t around. They put food on our table. They kept us safe. I learned to shoot very young. One of my earliest memories is shooting with my grandfather, balancing a rifle on a post because I was too small to hold it properly. Fundamentals were instilled and a passion ignited. As I grew in both stature and skill I continued to learn what I could from anyone willing. Marksmanship from my father. Self defense from my mother.
We all worked hard. Still do. Money is tough to come by and not easily spent on oneself. Most of the “gear” I had by my twenties was hand-me-down or adapted from surplus picked up at the gun shows. I recall building gear from deconstructed surplus to fill my needs. Sometimes I couldn’t find what I needed, sometimes I flat out couldn’t afford it.
Somewhere in my late twenties I was introduced to IDPA shooting. I saw this as an opportunity to train. It was clear after day one that I needed new gear. I saved for months to buy that new holster. A holster that came highly recommended. A holster that graced the pages of every gun magazine I pawed through. To say the least it did not meet my expectations. The idea of working with thermal plastics started with me repairing what I didn’t like about that holster.
The first thing I created to stand alone was a single mag holder made to fit in the back pocket of my jeans. It’s in my pocket right now. That one piece started it all. It filled a need. It made me better. It made me faster. It allowed me to carry how I wanted to carry. Slowly I refined and tested my designs and built what I wanted and needed. Holsters for me, to suit my individual needs. Soon enough I was building for friends and family. Holsters for them, to suit their needs.
Today Legion Defense Solutions gear is carried and trusted throughout the United States. We are very proud to say we have clients that are elected Sheriffs in the great state of Texas.
