Father and son turned love of hunting and fishing into business
Armed with financial projections and advice from NBDC consultant Charlie McPherson, Matt and Larry Eden were able to obtain the necessary funding to open their first business. Matt was a heavy equipment salesman and Larry, his father, was semi-retired from farming and transportation when they decided to act upon an idea they'd been kicking around for more than two years. In October of 2017, t
he Edens held the grand opening of their 5,000-square-foot sporting goods store in McCook.
Armadillo Arms features a large selection of firearms and archery supplies, serving as dealer for Glock handguns, as well as Xpedition Archery and Mudhole Custom Fishing Rods. The store also houses a 20-yard shooting range for bows, crossbows and BB guns. Other services include custom rod building and bait sales.
