TIFTON, GA – A group of friends in Tifton, seeing the state of the nation and wanting to do something positive, came together to form Packin Clothing Company. Packin exists to support Christ and the right of Americans to keep and bear arms.
“God in our hearts, guns in our hands. Neither will be stripped from us,” is the company motto. The company logo is a pair of laurels framing a cross laid over a set of crossed firearms.
Packin is a slang term which generally means a person is carrying a firearm. It is used by people who believe in the right to own firearms.
“Our decision to use American made clothing as much as possible is reflective of our belief in this great nation. I believe in supporting Americans and American jobs. We will continue to use American-made clothing for our products as long as we can find them,” said company founder Terri Metts Hendrix. “When I discussed the idea with some friends, they bought into the concept as well.”
Hendrix, an avid consumer of Christian and gun news, felt the need to combine the two in some way and present this to the public.
“I have always been told that God has you on this Earth for a reason and I believe it. I have questioned for years as to my reason or purpose. All of a sudden, I knew I had a mission from God; it was to put together a company named PACKIN to promote both God and Guns,”Hendrix said.
That in mind, the next step was to find a logo. A graphic designer who shares the same beliefs was found and designed the laurel-cross-gun logo. This is the first of many images the company plans to put on its clothing to brand the idea of God, Guns and America.
“The design is to change often but the meaning and the name is to remain the same. PACKIN’s sole purpose is so that the name can stand alone and show what someone stands for. This company and its name are meant as a wakeup call for God’s people to stand up and spread this message the world over,” Hendrix said.
The company has been around only a short while and had its public debut before Georgia’s largest sporting public at the recent Georgia Wildlife Federation Buckarama in Perry.
“We had a grand time in Perry. We shared our message with thousands of people. We realize we were probably ‘preaching to the choir’ but every T-shirt that left the fair grounds will be worn in public. Every time the logo is seen, the message will be spread,” Hendrix said. “Hundreds of thousands of people will see the message of Christ and His sacrifice and our God-given right to keep firearms.”
