Never ride alone.

From the owner/founder:

Hi, I am Kerry, owner of Darkhorse Armor, LLC and I welcome you to our site. We are a veteran owned and operated dealership selling products made  by AR 500 Armor and Steel Ops


What's in a name?

So where did the name Darkhorse Armor come from? I served 23 ½ years on active duty with the United States Army (from 31 July 1973 to 1 February 1997). 17 of those years were served with the “All American’s” of the 82nd Airborne Division. My last seven years were served in the 1st Squadron, 17th Cavalry of the 82nd. Five of those years as the 1SG of D Troop 1/17 Cavalry. The D troops call sign for many of those years was “Dark Horse” and what better way to honor my service with a hard charging group of paratroopers than to name my business after the Troop we loved. 

The logo of the old horse cavalry with the slogan “ Never ride alone” linking the Army ethos of never leaving a fallen comrade. Where ever you went, whether it be as a ground scout, a Vietnam era “pink team” or a modern day Kiowa Warrior scout team, you never went alone. Always having a wingman to cover you. That’s where having the affordable, reliable armor designed by AR 500 armor and Steel Ops comes in. Whenever you go into “harms way,” have the assurance that you will never ride alone when you are wearing our armor.
