Fireforce Ventures was founded July 7th, 2016 as a small business in Alberta, Canada, officially launching our webstore one week later on July 14th, 2016. We all came from various backgrounds, but found common ground in our nostalgia for the army surplus stores of old, and reproducing military kit that would cost you an arm and a leg in it's original form!
Fireforce Ventures aims to get you outfitted with unique apparel and equipment you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Fireforce Ventures continues to heavily invest time and effort getting exceptionally rare pieces of military and outdoor equipment inspired by the legendary Fireforce soldiers of Southern Africa, and operators from all around the world. As you read this, we are working feverishly to bring patterns and kit very few others can including the infamous Rhodesian Brushstroke camouflage. Currently, Fireforce Ventures is owned and operated by "Mr. M", a veteran of the Rhodesian Bush War.
In late 2018, Fireforce Ventures came under attack from the Canadian media for having supposed ties to racist podcasts, and selling “white supremacist” apparel. In reality, we’ve always denounced racists, and most of our original staff weren’t even “white”. From day one we have never been about the politics. The horrors of war, and the courage of individuals fighting them only capture public imagination because it reaffirms our very human, and universal want for peace. People own pieces of history, to wear, to display, and sometimes even to burn. We only care about the unabridged gritty history associated with the apparel, memorabilia and equipment we sell.
We believe in every piece of kit we sell. Historical accuracy is just as important as functionality for us. Fireforce Ventures strives to have pieces of kit you can't find anywhere else, and to give you the milsurp selection your old neighbourhood army surplus store used to. We'll make every effort to ensure that you can "operate" anywhere from Baghdad to Bermuda with style. You can be sure that Fireforce Ventures will deliver you a piece of old school kit that still fits into "the current year.
"Where ever you are in the world, and for whatever task
you need to get done, Fireforce Ventures will deliver, from Canada, with
love. Traditionalist kit, for today's adventures and operations.
