Our History

The Story Behind Shadow

The protector is often in the shadows. When high profile personalities require security as they travel, their armed escort is often referred to as their ‘shadow’… a bit of extra muscle that is just out of sight, but immediately ready for action.

Everyone deserves to be to be “shadowed” by a trusted and capable companion. Not everyone can afford a full security detail; but a Shadow Systems firearm? That’s easy. Take charge of your own personal security. Enjoy the peace of mind of an insanely capable Shadow at your side.

We started in 2016 with this in mind. Shadow Systems is serious about becoming a leader in this industry and has invested in the resources to do it.
