Northbrook, IL, March 18, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- OpticsPlanet, Inc., (www.opticsplanet.com), one of the largest Internet retailers of sport optics, tactical and military gear, eyewear and laboratory equipment, announced today the acquisition of six new domains through an agreement made with WebSalesGroup of Houston, Texas.
The acquired domains, Rangefinders.com, GunCabinets.com, GunCases.com, Range-finders.com, Gun-Cabinets.com, and Gun-Safes.com will be developed as stand alone niche stores as part of OpticsPlanet, Inc’s network of specialty e-commerce websites.
OpticsPlanet, Inc. CEO Mark Levitin commented, “With today’s domain acquisitions we have added six of the best currently available dot com domains in the outdoor lifestyle and firearm storage spaces to our growing portfolio. I am very pleased with the arrangement we have made with WebSalesGroup. The development of these premium web properties and their integration into our existing network will broaden our reach to the outdoor and gun communities.”
Ryan Ramsey, partner at WebSalesGroup.com agrees, “The sale of these prime names to OpticsPlanet was made after a visit to their headquarters; we realized there is really no one else in their league. Our goal was to lock in a long term cash flow rather than a one time sale and OpticsPlanet came up with a plan that works perfectly for both of us.”
OpticsPlanet, Inc. plans to launch these online brands by summer of 2010.
Rangefinders.com and Range-finders.com will become the premier destination sites for rangefinders and range finder accessories. The site will include golf rangefinders, hunting rangefinders, military range finders and other laser rangefinder related equipment, etc.

The sites will offer safes, cases and cabinets for safe firearm storage. The product selection will include a wide variety of rifle and pistol gun cases from top quality gun case manufacturers; products such as biometric and electronic gun safes and a gun cabinet selection including security and wood gun cabinets.
