On April 1, 1972, GT Distributors opened its doors. Bill Orr, our founder, is still active in the company. Our initial product lines were Smith & Wesson and Colt. That may not now seem to have been an extensive line, but at that time S&W sold more than guns and cuffs. They offered rifles, shotguns, armor, tear gas, breathalyzers, night vision, identa kits, radar, nightsticks, knives, rescue gear, resuscitators, ammo, holsters, sirens and lightbars.
