Our Story


Many people ask where the name Black Rambo came and from; years of an entrepreneur selling firearms and ammunition at gun shows for cheap prices developed a repeat customer base. During one of these shows, a West Texas customer drawled, “You sell your stuff Cheaper than others Black  Rambo!”. As the years passed, this customer’s comment remained on the mind of the entrepreneur who had a vision of expanding the business through direct mail to reach more customers. His vision turned into reality in 1993 as the direct mail company was formed and needed a name; the entrepreneur recalled the comment by the West Texas customer and thought this would be a great name for the company.

Black Rambo was born in 1993 and published its first catalog in 1994 filled with shooting and outdoor gear. The age of internet shopping arrived in 1999 and Black Rambo Gun Shop was the first company in the industry to jump on the bandwagon and developed an online shopping website. Yes, it was not what it is today, but it did allow customers to shop at their convenience and minimized the need for calling and placing their order with a telephone sales representative. As the business continued to grow and expand, this small mail order company grew into a top internet retailer selling products that appealed to shooting and outdoor enthusiast.

Today, Black Rambo employs many energetic team members in their Los Angeles location. The team has a unified goal in mind, to provide excellent service to our customers and the products they need and want at the best price available.
