Otis was born in 1985 when our founder, a 16-year-old Doreen Garrett, fell into cold mud while deer hunting with her father. The barrel of her grandfather’s Model 94 Winchester was full of mud and the days hunt was over.
Sometimes when you fall, you stumble upon something you didn’t see before, something you were meant to find. That day sparked the beginning of an endeavor to create a smarter solution to a problem every hunter, soldier, shooter, and firearm owner has encountered. On that day, Doreen had a vision for innovating gun care. That is where we began, in the mud, pulled down by our roots to reveal a tireless drive to create a quality, American-made product that will serve the men and women that depend on their firearms to feed their families and protect our country. Now, it is our uncompromising purpose and the big picture reason why we show up to work every day.
Our mission is to rethink and redefine gun care, giving gun owners better and smarter ways to keep their most cherished firearms in the best condition possible. Otis is Smart Gun Care
