About Clyde Armory
Clyde Armory was founded in 1991 by Andrew Clyde, a 28-year Navy veteran, and incorporated in the state of Georgia as an S-Corp in 2009. We began retail sales in a 1,400 sq. ft. facility in 1999, expanded to a 2,900 sq. ft. facility in September, 2004, and are currently in our new 12,500 sq. ft. armory as of April, 2010. Our main location is a re-creation of the original Cook & Brother Armory built here in Athens in 1862. Our second location opened this year as part of Guardian Centers, the 900-acre first responder training facility in Perry, GA.
It is our company's goal to provide both reasonable pricing and excellent service to the general public and to the Law Enforcement community regarding firearms, ammunition, optics, lights, and related tactical and self-defense equipment. Clyde Armory, Inc. has been federally licensed since 1991, dealing with Law Enforcement agencies since 1993, serving the public since 1999, and serving our online customers at clydearmory.com since 2005.
