    Pics from Solely Outdoors Grand Opening Celebration

    I visited Solely Outdoors a few months ago after their soft opening and was already impressed with some of the high-end goods on display. They have since continued to stock the store and this weekend is the celebration of their Grand Opening.

    As you may know Solely Outdoors occupies the same space as the old LeBarons, however there is no connection between the two stores. Solely Outdoors has different owners, a different layout, and most importantly a different selection and focus. Specifically, the inventory is higher end than offered by the previous occupants and now includes black guns and handguns for the restricted crowd. A very welcome addition indeed!

    Some pics of the new space











    Nice mix of hunting, tactical, and competition gear













    And the gun counter









    This custom STI immediately caught my eye, as indeed it did for many others and it spent a lot of time outside of the case.







    I think I brought the right knife for this gun



    For those who like a more conventional STI….a DVC Limited











    And Trubor



    Again, lots of high end guns like Desert Tech and Accuracy International





    And the Schmidt & Bender scopes to go with it











    More optics from Eotech…I like the removable battery compartment









    And Meprolight



    Which would be more suitable on something like this Kriss Vector in arctic camo







    Or the new mag-fed Mossberg





    Speaking of shotguns, nice to see my friends from S&J Hardware and Auscan, shown here hanging out with our gracious host





    I really liked this click-in side-saddle from Ardus Industries on their flagship shotgun





    Also nice to see the selection of shotguns from Bell Outdoors



    such as this double barreled Boito coach gun from Brazil



    And the single shot version



    My favourite of the Hatsan line was the Escort, available with fixed, telescopic, top folding, and side folding stocks.



    The controls on this mag fed semi-auto shotgun are in a similar layout to an AR15’s mag and bolt releases







    It also has an externally threaded brake that can be swapped out for a door breaching version…these will be internally threaded on future guns





    Left handed pump action







    And semi-auto with the same select-slug feature as on Benelli



    In addition to real steel, SO sells airsoft,



    my favourite of which was the grenade launcher







    With the M249 a close second



    Other standouts included this HK with gas system…







    …this Infinity 2011







    And a Salient Arms shotgun





    Modelled here by badboybeeson with one his real shotguns for comparison



    Solely Outdoors has a good selection of knives too, including custom karambits by James Coogler, such as these two



    The folder in retracted grip



    And extended grip



    The fixed blade in retracted grip



    And extended grip





    They sell Fox karambits too and one of the staffers had the very exclusive DART, a Doug Marcaida design (sadly not for sale)



    The Microtech DOA was a lot thinner than I was expecting (considering the thickness of the Strider knives upon which the design is based)





    So funny that I just got my Hickok45 shirt, indeed it was my first time wearing it, only to find that Solely Outdoors now sells them too!



    Along with JJFU





    So all in all something for everyone. IMHO Solely Outdoors is off to a great start and I wish the team continued success.

    Thanks for the write up RL. Looks like it's definitely worth a detour to stop in an ogle.

    Looks like they got a lot more stock in from the last time I was in there a couple months ago. Like how this place is shaping up.
