What is Kody Brown & Brian’s business? Do they sell weapons? sister wives
In tonight’s episode of sister wives, Kody Brown travels with his friend Brian Coalwell shortly after Kody officiates Brian’s wedding. “Brian and I have been friends for 25 years,” Kody says. “We have been business partners for maybe seven years. We just got back from a show in Reno, Nevada, a sports show, where we had some business.
What kind of business do Kody and Brian have that would require them to attend a sports show? As we have already reported, Kody sells guns and/or gun accessories. The “sportsman show” in Reno was probably just an understatement for a gun show there.
An attendee at a 2021 gun show in Tulsa posted several photos of Kody at his booth on Facebook. A screenshot of the Facebook gallery was later shared on reddit:
Saw this on FB, just confirming rumors that he’s selling TLCsisterwives guns
In the photos, you can make out some of the items Kody is apparently selling, including an AR-15 construction kit and AR-15 strike rails.
And here’s Brian at a gun show holding something that looks more like a bazooka or a rocket launcher than a gun:
In the scene from tonight’s episode, Kody mentions that Brian “recently” got married. According to court records, Brian was married in late June 2021. It took little effort on my part to find a gun show in Reno shortly after – the Crossroads of the West Gun Show which was held at the Reno Convention Center on July 24 and July 25, 2021. Not sure if that was the show they were at or not.
What’s the name of Kody’s gun business?
Kody has been involved in the firearms business since at least 1997. He is the registered agent for a Utah company called Das Hundhaus Firearms and Accessories which was established in June 1997. After staying in business for a few years, the license was not renewed. and expired in March 2001.
Kody and Brian have been attached to numerous LLCs over the years, but the only one I could find that includes both men appears to be another gun company. US Tactical, LLC was formed in Utah in April 2022 and the three official “members” listed are Kody, Brian and another Brown family friend who still lives in Utah.
In the Utah business case for US Tactical, LLC, it is categorized as “Sporting Goods, Hobby, and Musical Instrument Stores” under Products/Services.
It doesn’t appear that Kody started any other gun businesses, but the same can’t be said for Brian. He was the registered agent for US Tactical Scopes, LLC. He filed this case in September 2010 and it expired in January 2013. Brian was also a member of the management of Outpost Armory, LLC, in Pahrump, Nevada. Outpost Armory was formed in June 2018 and disbanded two months later.
Kody and Brian officially (and very publicly) went into business together in April of this year, with many fans speculating that Kody might FINALLY come out as a gun dealer on the show. Or maybe he’s considering a spin-off with Brian? That would certainly explain why Brian is getting what seems like very unusual screen time this season!
What are the odds that Robyn worked hard to design a US Tactical logo? Or maybe she wants nothing to do with Kody’s guntrepreneurialism after he rejected her suggestion to name the business My Husband’s Gun Closet? 😉
