Ace Case Manufacturing, LLC:
A Refuge for Naked Guns
For over 40 years, Ace Case Manufacturing, LLC, has been outfitting America’s naked guns.
From pistols to rifles, from antique guns to the newest models, from the rough and tough leather to the pink and sassy camo, we have been both designing and producing gun holsters, gun cases, slings and gun accessories here in the Show Me State of Missouri.
Our shipping center and their sewing facilities are located in the heart of the Midwest – St. Clair, MO and Steelville, MO respectively. These towns have provided us with devoted employees and trained needle workers. Many of our employees have been around for over 20 years, and consider themselves family. Mr. Ace Case himself (respectfully know as “The Boss” man) has been at the heart of the company for over 40 years.
In 1972, “The Boss” had gun rugs made, and began selling them at gun shows. Then in 1975, he began a mail order business selling pistol rugs. Over the next 5 years, he kept adding more and more items, and his business began to grow. By 1980, he was selling long gun cases, assault rifle cases and a large variety of gun holsters. In 1992, he purchased a 44,000 sq ft building (formerly used to manufacture shoes) for offices, inventory and distribution. In 2001, the company officially became Ace Case Manufacturing, LLC, when we opened our own sewing facility.
American ingenuity and perseverance were the order of the day when on Good Friday, 2006, the manufacturing site was ravaged by a fire, which completely destroyed both material and machinery used to create cases. By Monday afternoon, we were back in business, operating out of a local rental facility. And in September that same year, we were back in production at the original location in a brand new facility.
Ace Case Manufacturing, LLC, currently has approximately 42 employees that make cases, holsters and accessories fresh daily (Monday-Friday). You can order anytime night or day on their website 24/7, or by calling their office Monday through Friday between 9:00 am and 4:30 pm. CST.
Wondering how we came up with the company name? “The Boss” chose the word, “ace,” because it means: excellent; first-rate; outstanding. And as such, Ace Case Manufacturing, LLC, believes in producing exceptional products made from quality materials, designed to last a lifetime. The culture of our company is comprised of gun lovers who support the right to bear arms, and believe strongly that no gun should ever be naked.
