About US


From the tailgate of a pickup, Dean Bright started in 1979 selling target load ammunition to area trap shooters as he traveled and competed across the United States.  Before long, a side-line hobby turned into work: as one product led to another, bringing more vendors and more customers.  From this small venture, Sunset Distributors was evolved and eventually incorporated in 1994 on a farm near the small town of Steamboat Rock, IA.  Continued growth brought on construction of warehouses, and eventually in 2003, moving the company to a larger facility at today’s present location in Ackley, IA.

A family owned and operated business, Sunset Distributors continues to strive for excellence in the distribution of firearms, ammunition, reloading components and accessories for gun clubs and dealers across the nation.
