Old Glory Ammo’s Chris Thompson: Living by Example
“De Oppresso Liber” To Liberate the Oppressed; is the motto of the US Army Special Forces “Green Beret” Soldiers. Special Forces soldiers are the versatile unconventional warfighters whose regiment descends directly from the First Special Service Force (Devil’s Brigade) and the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). They are known as “Force multipliers, The Quiet Professionals and The Chosen Soldiers”. The Special Forces Soldier undergoes a rigorous selection process and training pipeline that can last up to two years. Key qualities found in Special Forces or “SF” soldiers are, their abilities to work as part of a group or as an individual without supervision in austere environments, with limited equipment and resources and under the most Spartan conditions. From Direct Action and Special Reconnaissance Missions to Intelligence collection and Unconventional Warfare these soldiers are the most versatile in the US Military arsenal. SF Soldiers cherish the brotherhood of their fellow soldiers and take pride in their perspective part a member of the overall team.
This former Special Forces Soldier who served in combat as a member of the Third Special Forces Group in Fort Bragg North Carolina is living by example. The native Texan and Combat veteran embodies all of the traits expected of an elite soldier. A recipient of The Bronze Star medal with a “V” Device for Valor, two Bronze Star Service Medals and The Army Commendation Medal, this former soldier now contributes to society as a proud business owner. In true “De Oppresso Liber” fashion Chris started Old Glory Ammo; a small business that supports the second Amendment to the US Constitution.
From the Chris Thompson, the owner of Old Glory Ammo
“We are currently in the testing phase of our own model of AR15s. Our ARs are going to be high end firearms that have better components and function than leading competitors and not cost the consumer nearly as much. We are anticipating to have final testing done by the beginning of October and will begin production where our rifles can be available online, gun shops in Texas (initially), and at some of the major city gun shows in Texas mid to late October.”
Made by Americans for Americans
Chris takes pride in being a small business owner living the dream that was made possible by our nation’s founders. In a time of economic strife where everyone sets national pride to the side in trade for the rock bottom price, Chris supports the American Economy by buying and producing American. Not only does Chris and his wife and partner Becca believe in giving back to America, but fellow veterans as well. The Thompsons and Old Glory Ammo only hire veterans and particularly members of Special Operations Forces either current or past for their training cadre.

Most recently, Old Glory Ammo sponsored Beast Bash at the VFW in Fort Worth to help raise funding and awareness for VFW Post 8235. Chris and Becca live by the motto of paying it forward.
Perhaps one of the things that one can admire most about Old Glory Ammo is their innovation. Again, recently this company started their own line of t-shirts called 2nd Amendment Apparel. This line of T-Shirts is stylish and at the same time patriotic all in one. Geared toward other freedom loving supporters of America’s founding document and particularly the part that recognizes American’s God Given right to bear arms and defend themselves against any tyrannical force who would so much as infringe upon that right; they are an all American product.
In Summary Chris and Becca Thompson’s Old Glory Ammo is a business model that American founding fathers could be proud of. Chris Thompson is a man who says what he means and does what he says. The kind of guy who still does business with his honest word sealed with a firm hand shake. These are the reasons that this writer has decided to feature Old Glory Ammo on business profile.
