TheQuarterMaster.co.za - Our Story
As most of our customers are aware: TacQM used to host their online shop with Shopify.
Towards the end of Feb 2019, Shopify decided that they hated the idea that TacQM sold things like magazines that held more than 10 rounds, or pocket knives, or stuff to clean cartridges with and de-platformed the entire store.
There was discussion as to whether they should capitulate and remove items from the store which are perfectly legal in the country in which they are sold.
Actually no. TacQM was built on honour and credibility and they weren’t going to backtrack on their integrity, so balls to the wall, they decided to build a brand new platform that they could continue selling good gear to the good guys, with no snow-flakery involved.
They also saw this as an opportunity to re-brand the business. The word ‘Tactical’ has lost much of it’s original intent and seems to infer 'tacticool' more than tried and tested gear now days.
So the thinking caps went on again and ideas were played with. The one idea that never changed was that the business was indeed still a form of QuarterMaster store. They don’t just do tactical, or gun stuff, but the store caters for the offroader, the camper, the hiker, the outdoors-man, and yes the gun enthusiast, hunter and security operator.
It says exactly what they are, what they do, and what they stand for; Great Gear for the Good Guys!
