Known as the Internet’s foremost source for concealed carry information, Delta Defense, LLC (formerly Delta Media, LLC) has been named as one of Inc. Magazine’s Fortune 5,000 companies for 2012.
Coming in at number 1,364, Delta Media has been recognized as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States, with a 224% growth rate over the past three years.
Based in Jackson, WI, Delta Media has 35 employees and publishes concealed carry information through the free U. S. Concealed Carry Association website and also through paid memberships and subscriptions to Concealed Carry Magazine. With more than 65,000 members and subscribers to this monthly print and online resource, Delta Media continues to grow strong with news and up-to-date information for those holding concealed carry licenses and those wanting to obtain them. Delta Defense is also the company behind Armed American Radio, Concealed Carry Report (a weekly newsletter that goes out to over 600,000 people), and the YouTube channel, Tactical Tim.
Past Fortune 5,000 honorees have included such luminary companies as Intuit, Zappos, Microsoft, and Oracle. On the list with Delta for 2012 are other well-known honorees, such as CDW, Levi Strauss and Facebook, which just went public earlier this year.
President and CEO of Delta Defense, Tim Schmidt, said, “You know, it seems like only yesterday when we sent our first copy of Concealed Carry Magazine out. I was literally crossing my fingers and saying my prayers that we’d get a few subscribers. Little did I know that I’d be lucky enough to tap into a huge untapped market of folks looking to improve the ability to be responsibly armed citizens.”
Looking forward, Schmidt hopes to continue to empower Americans to successfully defend their loved ones and to teach them how to do so responsibly and legally. For more information, visit http://DeltaDefense.com, http://www.USCCA.com, or http://ConcealedCarryMagazine.com
