I don’t have to remind most of you that gun manufacturers and merchants are under a lot of pressure these days in regard to their relationships with various financial organizations. Many banks and credit card processing companies have either severely hampered or completely severed all of their dealings with the firearms industry and this has left both sellers and buyers high and dry when sometimes making transactions. Stryk Pay is now offering a new pro-gun friendly means of credit card processing that is further backed up by a network of second amendment-friendly banks.
Introducing Stryk Pay – Pro-Gun Friendly Credit Card Processing
BOZEMAN, Mont. (May 11, 2021) — Despite the recent surge in firearms sales, the gun business is facing a serious challenge. That challenge is the fact that many “gun unfriendly” banks, financial institutions, and credit card processing businesses have been cancelling their agreements with the gun industry at an alarming rate.
Stryk Group USA – the Bozeman, Montana-based impact consulting company serving several leading hunting, fishing and firearms brands – has developed an innovative solution to the problem – Stryk Pay.
“First it was the Obama Administration’s onerous Operation Chokepoint that was thankfully nullified by the Trump administration.” said Ron Dan, director of sales, Stryk Pay. “Sadly, today it is the Biden Administration – perhaps the most anti-gun administration in history – that has set the tone for financial institutions to simply refuse to do business with legal firearms businesses. They are looking to accomplish this by not processing credit card transactions and not providing other essential services to our dealers and manufacturers. Stryk Pay was created by our company – one staffed from top to bottom with people who are endemic shooters, hunters, and outdoor enthusiasts. All with experience in everything from running firearms companies and retail operations for firearms brands to high-risk credit card processing for e-commerce, wholesale and retail companies – as a solution to these discriminatory business practices.”
Key elements of Stryk Pay include:
- It is supported by a network of Second Amendment-friendly banks (redundancy in bank approval to ensure continuity of services.)
- PCI Compliance Level 1 gateway, the highest, most stringent, of the PCI security levels. Top tier security, established in an effort to protect the security of credit card data and cardholder data, in e-commerce transactions as well as in-store
- Safeguards for fraud protection and chargebacks.
- Integration with current hardware and point-of-sales systems.
- Reliability and security, while still able to provide cost savings.
- Flexibility in implementation with current hardware, making a change as non-invasive as possible.
- From the initial application to implementation, Stryk Pay has the most tech-forward systems in place to ensure a streamlined process.
- Dedicated USA-based customer service.
“We are equally invested in preserving and supporting the Second Amendment as we are to offering cost savings and processing solutions, regardless of the nature of the transaction,” Dan said. “It’s that simple.”

It is reassuring to see companies like this pop up and step in where others have abandoned the firearms community. It may be a struggle sometimes to get through the tough times that the free market has presented us but with folks like Stryk Group USA it’s very clear that there is strong support for our industry and in my opinion, this bodes well for the future.
