About

Our world is full of danger. As a responsible American citizen, it is YOUR responsibility to defend yourself, your family, your community. Our mission is to equip you with the top quality gear you need to be a Defender.

Bryan R. Durkin founded Kerne Tactical LLC in January 2014 with the sole purpose of carrying out this mission. Dismayed at the skyrocketing prices of essential gear, accessories, and ammunition, he set out to supply these critical items at a practical price to those who need them most: the Defenders, the "sheepdogs," the law-abiding American men and women who are ready to step up to protect those around them.

Bryan served four years with the United States Navy. He later spent time as a defensive handgun instructor. He now serves fulltime as a Wildland Firefighter and Wildland Fuels Management Crewmember. Kerne Tactical is not just his hobby; it is his mission.
