In the beginning…
AJ Harris Tactical LLC was established in 2014 by Massillon natives, Amy and Jason Harris. While eating breakfast at a well known local restaurant, as they did often, they realized starting a business in town was something both of them had always dreamed of. Amy and Jason came up with the idea to open a coffee shop. After hatching this plan they quickly realized they knew nothing about coffee…now what!? With Jason’s extensive knowledge in firearms instruction and background in gunsmithing they thought Massillon needed a gun store. It wasn’t much later that they opened their first location at 109 Erie St N. Within just a few months, and after Massillon’s very warm welcome, it was evident that they would need to expand and find a larger location.
In late December of 2014 they bid on the Old Salvation Army building located at the corner of Tremont and 1st Street SE. which today they call home. Renovations of the existing building with the addition of the two story Massillon Gun Range quickly were put into place. Improvements to this beautiful establishment will be ongoing throughout the next year to allow for future growth and opportunities for our community and its patrons.
