Welcome to Gulf States Distributors


PROUDLY CELEBRATING OVER 40 YEARS, Gulf States Distributors has operated in Montgomery, Alabama – the heart of the Deep South – where we truly believe in “southern hospitality”. Our mission is to provide quality products at competitive prices with exceptional service.

A Rich History in the Law Enforcement Community

In 1980, Charles L. Dees Sr. (Leslie Dees), founder and CEO, started a small business in a basement in downtown Montgomery, Alabama, with two product lines, two employees, and a vision to bring the very best gear to those who protect society.

Over the years, we have grown into an industry leader offering over 100 law enforcement and protection product lines relying on the commitment of 20 outstanding, dedicated employees. We have seen many changes in the law enforcement, military, and first responder supply industry and have adapted, without forgetting our humble beginnings. Being a family-owned business, we don’t have stockholders to report to. We are accountable to our customers and to each other!

We Stock, We Ship, We Satisfy

We have built solid relationships with our suppliers, working for the best discounts available so we can pass along savings to you! Along with the 100+ product lines of law enforcement equipment and apparel, we have one of the largest ammunition inventories in the Southeast, encompassing a 12,000 square foot warehouse.

Our well-stocked showroom and friendly staff reflect a hometown atmosphere in our retail store. Our behind the scenes sales division, with over 165 years’ experience, works hard to obtain and maintain state and local contracts.  In-stock items usually ship within 24-hours.  We ship daily with UPS and UPS Freight.

At Gulf States, testimony to our superb customer service is 4 out of 5 customers are REPEAT customers! We want to ensure you have the best experience with us.  Our Philosophy…Never Settle, Go Above and Beyond!

But Enough About Us, What About You?

We know that we serve a unique customer. Law enforcement, military and first responders are hard-working, special people and should be treated with respect. We are proud to work alongside with you – equipping you with tools from the top manufacturers to make a hard job a little easier.
