About Scopecoat®, LLC:
Scopecoat®, founded in 1994, designs and manufactures patented protective covers for sporting, combat, law enforcement, tactical optics and more. Scopecoat® protective covers are constructed of the highest quality neoprene, laminated with nylon to safeguard scopes and optics from dust, dirt, dings, scratches and moisture. 100 percent Made in the U.S.A. Slideboot and Sentry Solutions are brands developed, manufactured and marketed by Scopecoat®, LLC

Eric Yeates, vice president of product development, Scopecoat®, LLC

Slideboot was developed to eliminated the need for gun rugs or traditional plastic boxes when transporting handguns to the range, in the console of a vehicle or in storage.  The soft neoprene cover protects this slide and sights from dings, nicks and scratches.  The form fitting Slideboot saves space in the rage bag or safe and as an added benefit the neoprene is not affected by oils so you can clean and treat your firearm and store it in a Slideboot without oils migrating to other surfaces within the safe.  The custom fit the Slideboot stretches onto the slide easily and can be removed quickly for full access to the weapon.

The Slideboot line consists of seven custom sizes supporting the majority of striker fired and 1911 handguns available.  Made from high quality neoprene Slideboot comes with a variety of colors and can be customized with logos to support agency, association or club activities.

 “The Slideboot line fits extremely well into the Scopecoat family of products.” Terry Naughton, president of Scopecoat® explained. “Both product lines are American-made in our factory in Arizona.  Both use high tech neoprene materials for a perfect fit.  And, both provide excellent protection against damage, dust and moisture. 

“Virginia Beach, Virginia, is a prime location for Scopecoat®,” Terry Naughton, president of Scopecoat®, LLC commented. “Not only is it my home, but it is the home of many leading companies in the tech, pharmaceutical, military, defense and government support industries. It’s conveniently located in the mid-Atlantic corridor that includes cities such as Richmond, Baltimore and Washington D.C. All current Scopecoat® products and new products on the horizon will continue to be made in America.” Another move to increase brand awareness is the signing of H&G Marketing as manufacturer’s representatives for Scopecoat® products. 

“I wanted to take a new approach” stated Eric Yeates, Vice President Research and Development for Sentry.  “For years I focused on developing products to military specification and I wanted to achieve that same quality level, using cutting edge materials and techniques”.   Sentry’s 1080 Technology builds on this concept allowing users to quickly mount pouches and accessories securely, in horizontal, vertical and diagonal orientations without any intermediary mounting panel.  The 1080 Technology incorporates laser cut, wear resistant Hypalon panels, shaped to mimic product profiles.  “Along with streamlining the overall appearance, eliminating the nylon webbing and bar tacks associated with traditional molle construction reduces weight and retains structural integrity of the base materials.” concluded Yeates.

You can see this technology in Sentry’s new Tumalo pack.  Available in two versions.

Tumalo Extreme - is constructed of 550D Rip Stop TPU.  YKK waterproof zippers combined full seam sealing offer ultimate water resistance.

Tumalo Air - is a lightweight version constructed of 550D Nylon Rip stop.

Virginia Beach, Virginia, January 1st, 2017

When you take four executives from an industry leader like BLACKHAWK! and give them a blank page, you can expect product advancement and rapid growth.  Mike Noell, a former U.S. Navy SEAL and Founder / CEO of BLACKHAWK! has partnered with his Executive Team; Terry Naughton, Scott Ferros and Eric Yeates to form SENTRY Products Group, LLC 

Over the past 18 months, the group has acquired three industry brands; Scopecoat, Slideboot and Sentry Solutions.  “Each of the acquisitions operated in a very defined space, and we knew we needed to develop the master brand to house and expand product lines as we had done in the past at BLACKHAWK!” stated Noell. “The creation of SENTRY Products Group with the tag line “Live To Protect” was something the team felt defined our mission well; the protection, storage and transport of Outdoor, Military, Law Enforcement Equipment.” 

As Noell was evaluating additional acquisition options for the group, the SENTRY Executive team worked to move, consolidate and stabilize the brands by building the internal operating systems to support future growth. Distributors, dealers and OEM partners have recognized these changes, and the group has seen consistent growth in U.S. and international markets.  As part of a multi-pronged growth plan, now is the time to utilize the team’s extensive manufacturing expertise.

“We have taken the opportunity to re-open the facility which housed the original Michael’s of Oregon (Uncle Mike’s) factory in Boise, Idaho, and have begun to rehire our former BLACKHAWK! crew,” commented Noell.  “ Our Boise facility will support all U.S.A. manufacturing, global sourcing and distribution. The Virginia Beach facility will be headquarters and all other functional departments. I am thrilled to be putting our team back together.”

“The mission now is to serve our industry and customers to the best of our ability and grow as quickly as possible so we can bring everyone back,” said Terry Naughton, President.

At the 2017 SHOT Show, to be held January 17-20 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Booth #614, SENTRY will highlight newly designed products in categories such as bags, packs, belts, scope covers, gun covers and gun-cleaning technology, along with the new branding of SENTRY.

“We wanted to start with the products our distribution and OEM partners requested first.  These products link us back to previous developments with updated materials and manufacturing technologies.  We are having a blast working together again.  We are back! Our head is down, and we are focused. Additional products and category offerings will follow.” stated Eric Yeates, VP Product Development.

Virginia Beach, Virginia, December 28, 2016

SENTRY Products Group has announced the opening of a new production facility located in Boise, Idaho.

The new facility will support U.S.A. manufacturing, global sourcing and distribution of SENTRY’s growing portfolio of products.  “Boise, Idaho was an easy choice as we had operated a similar facility in this area during our BLACKHAWK! days,” stated Terry Naughton, President of SENTRY.  This location has the flexibility to scale to both production and warehouse space to accommodate planned growth.


The company was originally founded by Dan Evans in 1994. After damaging a scope while removing it from his safe, Evans realized there had to be a better method to protect high value optics. Using a high quality neoprene laminated with nylon, he created a custom fit for the optic. Evans’ new creation or “scope coat” protected the scope from dings, scratches, debris and as a plus, the neoprene naturally wicked moisture and condensation from the optics. Over the years, the product line has increased to include Binobib and Barrel Boot lines.

Eric Yeates Joins Scopecoat® as Vice President of Product Development

Yeates, formerly with Cannon Safe and BLACKHAWK!, brings 20-years of product development to Scopecoat®, LLC.

“The concept came from a call with a customer whose slung rifle fell into the snow during an elk hunt,” stated Eric Yeates, Vice President Research and Development for Sentry. “While their Scopecoat cover kept the optic clear, they asked if anything was available to protect the rifle.  We looked to technology from the apparel industry and created a lightweight product that would work with a slung weapon,” concluded Yeates.

Today, the American-made Scopecoat® products are distributed worldwide within the shooting sports, law enforcement and military markets. With over 80 custom fit sizes, Scopecoat® is the standard of protection for leading optics brands worldwide. Scopecoat® custom shop also produces logo products for militaries, government agencies, hunting lodges and sporting goods associations.


The Tumalo pack is built with the 2,000 cubic inches of storage capacity and is outfitted with patent pending 1080™ technology.  The three storage compartments are accessed through dual slide YKK zippers.  Interior features include hydration access port, integrated laptop sleeve, mesh organizers and key lanyard.   Front panel includes a quick access slash pocket.  Airframe technology reduces heat build up for the user, while 1080 

Naughton, who assumed ownership in August 2015, has a proven track record of growing markets and increasing sales. Previous positions include Vice President of Sales for Alpha Industries, Director of International Sales for ATK and Vice President Marketing of BLACKHAWK! where he integrated a family of brands under the BLACKHAWK! banner, developed B2B and B2C marketing strategies, and as a member of the senior management team, lead the successful sale and acquisition of BLACKHAWK! by ATK.

While great for use in the field, the Armadillo also protects your valuable firearms and optics during transport and storage.  The soft brushed interior eliminates friction wear marks in transport and eliminates collateral damage from exposed bolts, laser devices, optics and lights while retrieving, or arranging weapons in the safe.
