About Shield Republic

We are Founders, Barrett Johnson & Ryan Carter and we founded Shield Republic in 2016 in our home outside Raleigh, NC. Our core values are Honor, Courage and Commitment. We stand for freedom and liberty in service to God, Country, our families and all Americans.

We are driven to design products that speak loudly to the individual who never quits the fight and lives for liberty and freedom.
