Meet Blake Morganwebdev
Today we’d like to introduce you to Blake Morgan.
Thanks for sharing your story with us. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
After living in the south for a few years we started to realize that shotgun shells were starting to become an everyday thing around the house. This was a crazy idea to me at first then I found myself looking for different shells with designs online. After a nice long search, it becomes apparent that nobody sold shells with any type of custom work on them. This set me off on a journey that lasted a few years to make custom shotgun shells. We are proud that all of our products are designed and made in the USA. To get the best results, we take very specific steps to ensure top quality shells. The process we use is actually patent pending.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Not at all! It took me almost a year to get my first prototype made and another 6 months before I even fired a live round in a gun. I thought with the internet and the way the world is connected, that things would move fast. I realized that nobody is going to care about your business or project as much as you do. It was also important for me to learn that mistakes are ok and will be made. I have learned from a lot of those mistakes but also know there will be more to come.
Please tell us about business.
Kustom Ammo is the only company that makes completely custom ammo. We do not change what is on the inside of the shell or load, we only work with the outside design of the shell. We can take any design, picture or logo and put that on shotgun shells. It has been really seeing all the different ways a shotgun shell can be used. We have done wedding gift shells, business cards, state flags and business logos. We specialize in shotgun shells but are looking into doing other types of ammunition.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
A lot of the best memories I have as a kid come from time spent with my family. I have two older sisters and three younger brothers so there was always someone to play with. Never a dull moment.
