What does a 16-year-old girl do who lost a day of hunting with dad because of a muddy gun barrel? How about starting a multi-million dollar gun cleaning products company that’s now known the world over. Doreen Garrett was hunting with her father when she had her rifle barrel plugged up with mud. With no cleaning tools on hand, the young Garrett was furious and stomped back to the house to find something that would work.
She ended up designing a prototype portable gun cleaning kit that she took to the 1985 S.H.O.T. Show (lying about her age as she needed to be 18) and proceeded to have several orders placed and viola, Otis Technology was formed. Pictured is the Otis Tactical Cleaning System.Â Otis offers a wide variety of gun cleaning packages that range from simple lightweight field kits to elite cleaning systems.
