The Krale gunshop made its name in sport shooting and is now a nationally as well as internationally renowned and reliable address that’s also well known for hunting and airsoft. Krale is a long time importer for many well known brands with a portfolio that keeps expanding.
Despite the fact Krale has become a big name in the international market with an incredible wide range of products in both the 1400 m² store as in the multilingual webshop, the friendly small town character has stayed firmly intact. The customer still comes first and a lot of our staff members themselves are involved in sport shooting, hunting and airsoft, which makes conversation that much easier.
With that expertise and professionality on one side and on the other good customer service and a friendly atmosphere, Krale has built up an exceptionally loyal customer base, nationally as well as internationally.
