Rocky Mountain Specialty Gear got its start in 1995. Back then, in Denver, if you wanted to buy a quality knife, backpack, or set of binoculars in person then you had to drive to the nearest Cabela' Sidney, Nebraska! For this reason RMSGear was started. Since then we have become a niche store specializing in quality hunting products related to traditional archery.

Since the shop's beginnings we have built one of the best knife shops in Denver, if not the best. We currently have over 250 bows in stock and most any other product you would need related to traditional archery.

RMSGear is a family run Mom & Pop type of store with old fashioned customer service. The shop is ran by Tom Clum and his sons, Tommy and Danny. Tom has 30 years of traditional archery experience, and his two sons have been shooting stick bows since they were coordinated enough to hold one up.

In this day and age a brick and mortar retail store devoted strictly to traditional archery is rare. In the whole country there are only a handful, and among them only a small few are open to the public 6 days a week, 10 hours a day. The staff here is proud to serve the traditional archery community. It is their passion and they would do anything to help others get started in this wonderful sport.

Meet our staff:



Tom started RMSGear from the ground up. Thousands and thousands of arrows later he has been blessed with many true friendships and is fortunate to enjoy life in a great atmosphere every day. Tom has been bow hunting since 1976 and shooting a traditional bow since 1982. He has successfully hunted many species with the stick and string.



Tommy is Tom's oldest son. Tommy graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 2006 and moved home a few years later to try and help this business. While in college Tommy was a 2X NCAA DI All-American wrestler.

Tommy and his brother Dan have been terrorizing squirrels since they were old enough to pull a bow back. Their early squirrel hunting days were the beginning of a passion for both archery and bowhunting which still exists strong.



Tom's youngest son, Dan, has grown up with a bow in his hand his entire life. Danny worked as a fly fishing guide in the summers while in college. Danny followed his older brother to college at the University of Wisconsin, where he also wrestled for the Badgers. He has a passion for bowhunting that rivals any. His knowledge and passion are a great fit at RMSGear, and part of what makes this place what it is.



Paul has grown up shooting a trad bow his whole life. He is as experienced and knowledgeable as anybody his age. We are extremely excited to have Paul working for us full time. Paul has been bowhunting for his entire life and he brings a wealth of experience here with him. If you haven't met Paul, please come down to the store and introduce yourself.



Bert started working at RMSGear several years ago. His good natured personality, along with the razzing he gives and takes (mostly gives), adds to the camaraderie we all share. He has been shooting traditional archery for umpteen years - don't believe me, just look at all that white hair.



Tom's wife Chris has always had a passion for the outdoors. Chris loves to hunt with her husband and sons and has been hunting with a Wapiti Recurve for the past 20 years. Without Chris RMSGear would not exist.



Tracy literally grew up with a life centered around traditional archery. Bob Gulliksen (his father) has one of the finest broadhead collections in the country. Tracy has taught all of our arrow makers the finer points of perfecting their skills. He is one of the top shooters in the region and is an accomplished bowhunter. When we have an order for a special set of arrows, Tracy is our man. He can be found at the shop most Saturdays.
