Mission Ready Equipment Acquires Grey Group Training

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

It’s finally official. We just received word from Mission Ready Equipment announcing their purchase of Grey Group Training. Both are fantastic companies and I think they are going to compliment one another very well. Congratulations!

Mission Ready Equipment is pleased to announce the acquisition of Grey Group Training.
Mission Ready Equipment recognizes the strength of Grey Group Training’s brand and sales model by committing to the company’s growth.

“Grey Group Training customers will be able to choose great products and training from an expanded assortment of manufacturers and will have more depth of product on the shelves for both the ecommerce store and the retail store,” says Mission Ready Equipment President Jeff Smith.

Grey Group Training’s mission and identity will not change as they seek to grow their retail and training operations by adding new storefronts and expanding their roster of trainers as Mission Ready Equipment’s retail sales and training partner.

“Growing from one location to two locations is not twice as hard; it is ten times as hard,” says Smith, “We are excited to be able to bring our experience in growing other retail brands to Grey Group.”

The move continues Mission Ready Equipment’s growth in the tactical marketplace while allowing it to focus on its core mission as a premier wholesale, online and direct sales supplier to military, federal, state and local government agencies.

In addition to retail, the acquisition adds Grey Group Training’s experience in firearms, combatives and combat medicine education to the current capabilities at Mission Ready Equipment.

Smith says “Eric Page will take over as Grey Group’s Vice President to manage the operation as they align with Mission Ready Equipment’s growth objectives. Eric has been a part of Grey Group from the beginning and is a key figure in it’s future”. Smith added “Grey Group’s own Josh Burmeister worked with us through the acquisition process and contributed to a smooth ownership transition. Josh will be leaving to pursue other projects.”

“The Grey Group staff can’t express how excited we are about becoming part of the Mission Ready family. With their help in logistics and support Grey Group can get to what we do best, giving the best service and products to our Brothers and Sisters in harms way,” says Grey Group Training Vice President Eric Page.

The acquisition closed February 14, 2013.

Mission Ready Equipment was formed in 2010 by a group of dedicated individuals with more than 28 years experience in equipping & instructing individuals and teams, whether Armed Forces, Law Enforcement, Private Security or Fire and Rescue, in layered clothing systems, footwear, packs, tents, sleeping systems, and climbing/high altitude mountaineering equipment.

Grey Group Training – A Note from Ramia

Sunday, January 6th, 2013


Hello Grey Group fans and customers. Many of you are already aware of me moving away from Fayetteville but others are not. I wanted to take this time to let everyone know of my new role with Grey Group Training.

I started at GGT in April 2010 as a customer service rep. From there I became the Office Manager or as Eric likes to say, the Logistics Ninja. As of Jan 2013, my husband and I moved to Kansas City and my role in the GGT HQ was passed down to Scarlett and Abbey. I am extremely blessed to have obtained a full time position at the University of Kansas and am lucky enough to maintain a part time position with Grey Group as the Training Coordinator. I still have my email ([email protected]) and still have daily communication with the folks in Fayetteville. They are my family and some of the best friends I will ever have; plus they can’t get rid of me that easily.

When it comes to training, I’m the one who will be answering training questions, making the schedule, sending out the informational emails and certificates and will be the main contact between instructors and ranges. I may not be physically at Grey Group any more but I am still around to help in any way possible. Unfortunately, as far as phone, all I have is my personal cell. If you need anything and can’t reach me for whatever reason via email, please call the office at 910-323-4739 and they will forward me any messages.

Thank you everyone for your patience as we all make this transition of me leaving the office. I can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store for Grey Group and am super happy to still be apart of the dysfunctional family.

Grey Group Training Gives Us the Lowdown on a TangoDown Rail Mounted Front Sight Prototype

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012


Grey Group Training got the scoop on a new rail mounted front sight from TangoDown that is designed to accommodate top mounted lights such as the Inforce model seen in these photos. It will also accommodate the SureFire 300.


I run a top mounted X300 on one of my carbines but it has to sit in front of the fixed front sight on a Daniel Defense rail. I like having the light there with the high thumb grip but this would be better than my current setup as it would move the front sight even further out and increase the sight radius.
