Rogue Gunfighter – The Rundown

Their motto is, “Fight Fast, Light, Ready be Unpredictable”. They apply “reality from experience” to what they do. You might already ‘know’ Rogue Gunfighter and not even realize it. We’ve been hearing snippets here and there for months from friends all around the industry. Once you learn a little more, you’ll start to put some pieces together like we did. They’ve got a lot going on and it’s pretty exciting stuff.

Rogue Gunfighter, LLC was formed in 2012 by a group of friends who have worked and operated together in some of the worlds most undesirable place to include Yemen, Libya, South American, Europe, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Indian Ocean and Pakistan. Our culture is derived from the “Gunfighter” lifestyle and warrior ethos. We come from diverse backgrounds to include all branches of the US Military Branches to include SOCOM, OGA, Intelligence, Anti Piracy/Ship Protection and High Threat Protection.

RG has worked with some great companies like Troy Industries, TAG, High Threat Concealment, Smith and Wesson, Insight Technologies/L-3, Eotech, LCI, Smith Optics, Rogue American Apparel, Team Wendy and Kill Cliff. We recently finished a fun project utilizing equipment and gear mentioned above.

Let’s start off with their armor carrier. The RG Multi-Purpose Operation Carrier. It’s a slick, low-profile rig that can be worn over or under clothing depending on the mission. It incorporates load carriage that doesn’t get in the way when not in use.

They also offer a removable MOLLE panel for more overt use.

As you can see, they are also working with our friends at High Threat Concealment who have also developed low-profile working rigs that incorporate more than just a pistol and spare magazine.

They’re also working on several other projects including –


A low profile med pouch


Lights


Knives


And a low profile clothing line in conjunction with Rogue American Apparel


Naturally, they’re going to share their philosophy through training

I’m pretty excited about what I’m seeing here. It’s ambitious, but it didn’t just happen overnight. They’ve been working on this for awhile with each guy bringing his piece to the puzzle and they’ve been refining everything over the last year or so.

Their website isn’t quite ready to go yet but be sure to ‘like’ them on Facebook in order to keep up with their latest news.

    I dig the multi-purpose carrier. Cool concept..

  2. Dude Man says:

    Eh.. Good luck with that guys. Looks like a bunch of friends with a facebook who can’t find a real job to me. But I digress…I guess the world does need another low profile molle vest and low profile med pouch created by some more guys with a “warrior ethos” and “gunfighter lifestyle”. Have fun looking tough and showing off your badass tattoos at the trade shows.

  3. UlfBjorn says:

    I’m looking forward to learning more about this.

  4. Jason says:

    Not to be a grammer nazi because I definitely struggle with it but when putting out advertisements you guys at Rogue Gunfighter might want to have someone really look over your stuff. For example, “you MOLLE rig” on the very first pic. It makes it look unorganized and thrown together. Just a thought.

    • Dude Man says:

      Not to be a name Nazi but who wants to do business with a “Rogue Gunfighter”. I know RG is for the tacticool market but if you’re going to play that game you at least have to pretend your gear might be used in the military. If I were a CO I wouldn’t want my peace keeping troops wearing gear with “Rouge Gunfighter” emblazoned on it. I know it’s a moot point seeing as how this stuff will never make it off the paintball field or tacticool gun range but at least pretend well.

      • James says:

        Dude Man,

        I’m not sure what is warranting the disrespect and disdain in your comments above. Perhaps instead of tearing down your fellow brothers in arms you could support them with constructive criticism in a private forum instead of voicing your ignorant comments for the world to see. I’m not sure about the military you came up through but the term “silent professional” should mean something to all those who wore the uniform. Just a thought…

        James

      • Alpha-Omega says:

        just to let u know.. this stuff is for contractors. But then again most of the military wouldn’t really need it for Low Pro now would they? Anyways again, I look forward for this coming to the market. kangaroo pouch would be a really nice thing to have. Let me know if u need testers!!

  5. JJ says:

    Who cares, looks like great gear!

  6. James says:

    Rogue & SSD,

    Keep up the phenomenal work… looking forward to great things from you.

  7. erick says:

    Out of curiosity, what is this “Gunfighter Lifestyle?”

    • Dude Man says:

      The Gunfighter Lifestyle can be found at the toughest tattoo shops is Calabasas Ca. The Rogue Gunfighter can be found in the darkest corners of the toughest bars in East Malibu sipping on a hardcore $280 bottle of vodka with table service of course. When you see the Gunfighter Lifestyle happening you know right away it’s nothing you want to mess around with. If the tattoos don’t scare ya the t-shirt will.

      • Kyle says:

        Lol, yeah that pretty much sums it up. The gunfighter lifestyle is a bunch of guys that hang out in the gym everyday, get intimidating tattoos and tshirts and grow a goatee. Then they get a job as a government contractor and go to places like Kuwait and UAE so they can take pictures for their facebook wearing overpriced gucci gear that they never use. If you ever see a picture of a “gunfighter” claiming to be in Afghanistan and their gear is all clean and looks new, you know they’re a poser.

        • Raymond G. says:

          I would like to party like a rock star, wear jeans and tshirts to work, not shave, be in shape, afford $400 jeans, get laid often, have friends that do cool shit and get paid.

          Love the flavor fellas!

      • MacDeth says:

        haha Dude Man. I think you’re on to something.

    • SSD says:

      Erick, that’s a fair question. I’d like to hear more myself.

    • Maxcoseti says:

      Tight shirts, It’s all about tight shirts

  8. Johnny says:

    Dude Man, come on out anytime and shoot with RG in Texas, guys like you talk trash but are running on empty. These guys are all top notch with the right credentials. They do things their way and have the experience to back it up. Now go buy some more multicam, get your high and tight higher and pretend you are a tough guy who talks trash and has never done anything while you probably live with you mom. Clown

  9. Jan says:

    Love what you guys are doing, keep it up!!

  10. Dude Man says:

    The Gunfighter Lifestyle is epitomized in the marketing picture above. Look closely past the dead body and try not to laugh at the security contractor wearing $400 designer jeans.

  11. Dude Man says:

    I’m giving these guys way to hard of a time. They are probably in their mid twenties. Kids really. I do wish them luck in their endeavors.

  12. Eric S. says:

    I like the vest idea. That would be pretty slick for U/C LEO work.

  13. To answer your question, The Gunfighter lifestyle goes beyond military/law enforcement communities. It goes encompasses all those that wake up in the morning and takes the responsibility of protecting themselves or their fellow man to heart. The ones that don’t do it for pay, they do it because it must be done.

    Col. Grossman said it best when he referred to the sheepdog mentality; those that protect the sheep against the wolves.

    Rogue Gunfighter encompasses all these qualities and it is our endeavor to put out quality gear for those that take these responsibilities to heart. We have been there, we know. Yes, there are always naysayers but I am reminded of a quote whenever I read one.

    “Those too weak to follow their own dreams will always find a way to discourage yours.”

    They don’t need a response. All it is, is talk. After you try our gear, you will find it worth your time because we put in the time.

    We do it because we must.

    Semper Fi,

    Joshua

  14. MacDeth says:

    You have to admit, outfits like Rogue Gunfighter and Black Palm have this Ed Hardy for the tacticool market vibe. I bet they love Affliction swag too. 😀

  15. Former Marine says:

    Dude Man…I agree that you are giving these guys too hard of a time. Having met all of them, their motives are born out of necessity in the field. These guys have served our country and continue to make strides in providing gear they believe will allow our current service members to be more prepared to take down any threats as effectively as possible. They aren’t paintball or “tacticool” guys. They are heroes just like each and every one of our current and former service members. You certainly are entitled to your opinion, but a loud opinion based on bias and misunderstanding can lead others to follow a false trail behind you. These guys don’t deserve that.

  16. Jason says:

    Dude Man, the Blue Falcon is strong in him.

  17. Jason says:

    MacDeth,

    I bet you like Multicam robocop everything, right? You obviously have no idea about low profile. Finally a company who understands what it is really about in AO’s that operate correct. Keep it up RG!

  19. Joshua says:

    Apologize for the double post. I assumed something was wrong with my first one due to the delay of the posting.

  20. Chris K says:

    Looking forward to seeing the designs. I do agree that the marketing is a little too flashy. Bottomline is the kit will speak for itself.

  21. Boz says:

    I worked with these guys in Afghanistan. Good men and squared away. You can laugh at the marketing all you want but the gear is solid and I wish I had that carrier while I was driving all over that country.

    I see a lot of applications for it in my current line of work so I’ll be buying one.

    As for the $400 pair of jeans….no airsoft geek working at Walmart could afford those, guy must be a contractor.

  22. Alex says:

    “You can laugh at the marketing all you want…”

    That pretty much sums up this company. Great ideas. Poor marketing.

  23. Paul says:

    Great guys, all involved have years of real life experience in places around the glob most have never seen. There will always be haters and wannabees who haven’t done anything but are always floating around the internet “Internet Commandos”. Keep doing what you guys are doing and changing the standards rogue gunfighter. My Agency is in line for the carrier and can’t wait to get it.

    • Joshua says:

      Paul,
      We appreciate the support. We look forward to providing innovative/quality gear through forward thinking gained from past experiences. We should have our website up soon and our products ready for deployment soon after that.

  24. Frank A. says:

    Great job guys! Looking forward to getting hands on much needed gear.

  25. ODG says:

    Joshua, I like the carrier it looks like a good piece of kit for the intended community it was designed for. Don’t sweat the haters man, those of us that know, like what direction you are going keep it up.

  26. TCBA_Joe says:

    So what cut of soft armor does the Multi-Purpose Armor Carrier use? I have a 2A concealment vest I’d like a new carrier for.

    Also, will I be able to afford it?

    • Joshua says:

      Joe,
      We are still working on the specifics, going through testing….etc. I don’t want to give out bum scoop so please just stay tuned and we will get that information out as soon as we have it nailed down. Come join us on our Facebook page and you will be among the first to find out. Appreciate your interest.

  27. SFRANCO says:

    I’m a knife collector and friends with your knife designer. Partnering with Ben speaks very highly of your judgement and if you guys are cool with Ben then I’m cool with you guys. I admire the resolve to start a business – its a risk most people are afraid to take so best wishes in the venture. I am VERY much interested in purchasing the knife when available so I will stay tuned.

  28. Czech says:

    That is some awesome stuff; I will definitely be following you all.

    I have a quick question; in the 4th picture from the top, what gloves are those?

    Thanks

  29. Dude Man says:

    It looks like these are good guy and I wish them well I do. I gave em a hard time just because there are so many companies cashing in on the tacticool market and theres nothing wrong with that it’s just my brand of humor. Sure this is made for contractors but the facts are there aren’t that many contractors. If you could sell to 10% of them which would be a huge % that would be a success but add up to very low sales so out of necessity this will go to the tacticool market. Everyone knows this. You can’t sell 100 vest and make a sustainable profit. You have to sell thousands which I hope these guys do. I really do. I applaud hard work and as a small business owner I know that fate favors the risk takers. High risk high reward is the game. One thing though. This is an evil world and as adults we need to set an example to our youth and the third world. How do you explain your a rouge gunfighter to a 7th grader with a dictionary. Just so every one knows yeah I was picking on the guys and it’s good fun. However I’m not just an armchair tacticool. My background was with rangers during the first gulf war and I was a contractor at Blackwater for 6 years providing security for Bechtel. I know the routine. Sure I’m a general contractor (home builder) now but I paid my dues and have one testicle to prove it. Yeah I’m that guy who got a ball shot off. In my old age I try to mentor to the young kids and I would discourage any rouge behavior. I know it’s just marketing but the kids look up to you guys. Make us proud and innovate.

    • Justin says:

      We currently have 4 different agencies looking at our carrier. Everyone in our group has served and or are currently serving (many with SOCOM) others are currently deployed with OGA groups and low profile Protection Teams. We do not worry about explaining RG to a 7th grader, don’t need to. We actually teach them weapons handling and safety on weekends when we can and I can assure you they are fine with it as are their parents. We have had incredible support and interest in our equipment and people are happy to see a company step up and actually make high quality low profile gear that has been missing. Not sure what you did, but if you have worked in or around groups and AO’s like we have, you would understand that Jeans and Tees are the way to go, not Multicam and Morale patches, so not sure if you really know what you are talking about. Always happy to have new fans. Best from Texas

  30. Spearhead says:

    Great stuff, finally people who understand low pro. Big fan already.

  31. D says:

    Reading through the threads I was cracking up. I’m friends with one of the Rogue Gunfighter guys and never would have thought someone would have taken upon themself to have called out professionals in the manner Dude Man did, especially if he actually paid any attention to the kit and gear they are advertising. But then it all made sense once he explained his dated experience back in the first golf war and his time with BW when they were hiring prison guards and mall cops to fill operator positions. I have added insight into the world of haters now. And just out of curiousity should you happen to read this, since when do grown men have to explain their companies to 7th graders as a standard for setting an example?

  32. D says:

    Excuse me, I meant to type “Gulf War” and wouldn’t want one of these Keyboard Commando PHDs shooting down my incorrect grammar.

  33. T says:

    You should market the carriers toward plainclothes/undercover officers as well. We are always looking for high conceal-ability with multiple options for equipment carry. There is a large void in the market for what you and High threat concealment are offering for U.C.’s.

    • T says:

      By the way I’m ready to order one. I check your site often. Can’t wait to get my hands on one.
