Oceanside CA— While most stores celebrate their grand opening with a pair of giant scissors and a ribbon cutting, 5.11 Tactical celebrated the opening of their new Oceanside location, 3186 Vista Way, Suite 100, with a battering ram and a door breach. Oceanside Police Chief, Frank McCoy had the honor of breaching the ceremonial door saying; “Oceanside is a great city made greater by the presence of the military. 5.11 Tactical will be great asset to Oceanside.”
