Bratz Tactical is a family-owned business in the mountains of Western North Carolina that operates a retail storefront with High Ridge Adventures as well as a retail website. We not only offer tactical supplies and gear for L/E and first responders, but also supplies and gear for hunting, fishing, camping, and survival. If you can't find it on our website or in our store, chances are we can get it. Just ask!
We value God, family, and the USA above anything else and look at every customer as a member of our family. We did not start this business to get rich; we do it because we love it and pride ourselves on providing quality workmanship and customer service at the lowest price possible. We have a great appreciation for the selfless service of members of the military, law enforcement, and first responder community and offer exclusive first responder programs, discounts, and no transfer fees as a token of that appreciation. We also donate a portion of all proceeds from each purchase to our local community and to organizations like SOWW (Special Operations Wounded Warriors), Luke’s Wings, First Responders Children’s Foundation, Paws and Stripes, and the NRA.
John and Tanya Bratz (Co-Founders)
John was born in Denver, Colorado, but spent most of his childhood in Allegany Mountains of Western New York. At age 13 his family moved south to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Then, after high school, he moved to the beach and started a small business in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina until the recession in 2007. The recession forced him to find other means work and, despite never serving in the military, he somehow stumbled into defense contracting. John spent the next 6 years, 5 of which deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, working in various areas of anti-terrorism including counter-IED, surveillance, security, and targeting.
Tanya was born and raised in Western North Carolina. After high school, she attended the University of Tennessee - Knoxville and now works as a Medical Admin Assistant for the Department of Veterans Affairs while helping John with designs for our custom products as wells as the boring stuff that goes along with this business like accounting and paperwork.
Even though John and Tanya went to high school together they didn’t start a relationship until one of John’s R&R trips back home in 2010. John and Tanya were married in 2012, John came home for good in 2013, and they are now raising 2 wild young boys.
Will Kuhn (Co-Founder)
Will was born in Iowa and grew up in Columbia, South Carolina. After high school graduation, he joined the Marine Corps where he served for 6 years. He deployed to Iraq in 2008 and upon his return, started a civilian life as an HVAC technician. In 2013, a career change brought him and his family to the mountains of North Carolina. Will and his wife, Kristen, are now raising 3 beautiful daughters.
John and Will’s friendship, a mutual passion for firearms, and appreciation for our veterans and first responders inspired them to begin this new endeavor and they look forward to sharing it with you.
