About Us

Patriot Jacks Outfitters was founded (Sept 2010) on the principal of offering quality outdoor products to our customers with the highest level of customer service possible.  We do this because we were once our customers.  We know what it is like to have to shop around different places for our gear, and have to wait forever for our orders to arrive.  It is our goal to provide our customers will the highest level of service, while maintaining our family friendly atmosphere that our customers have grown to love.  

 

We often get asked ..... Who is the Patriot Jacks Dog in the Logo?  
It is a combination of all four of our dogs!!

Patriot Jacks Outfitters Staff / Family

John Herndon / Owner
Born and raised in Kings Mountain, NC.  John graduated Kings Mountain High School, where he then went to further his education at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (GO 49ers!!!).  He graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Civil Engineering.  He then went to work with a private Civil Engineering firm which specialized in Land Development.  Long work weeks of sitting behind a desk working on projects, John re-established a love for the outdoors.  Every second that he was not at work, he was found hiking, in a treestand or even at the lake attempting to catch fish.  It was always his dream to own his own business, so why not do something that he loved.  Patriot Jacks Outfitters was opened September 15th 2010 combining John's love of the outdoors along with the thrill of meeting new people.
