Vero Vellini, the acknowledged leader in comfortable, handcrafted gun slings, has announced that it has signed with two new sales representative groups, Owens Outdoor Sales and Mike Barnes & Associates. Owens Outdoor Sales will be selling the complete line of Vero Vellini gun slings, binocular and camera straps and accessories throughout Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas, and Mike Barnes & Associates will be handling North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia.

Mike Barnes & Associates has been representing companies in the outdoor sporting and shooting industries for more than two decades. The company has worked with top names in these markets, from both the vendors and dealer sides. Jim Boudoucies, the principal officer, is an avid shooter, hunter and fly fisherman and is extraordinarily well regarded among dealers in his southern territory for service and support.

Owens Outdoor Sales is the premier outdoor dealer focused rep agency in the TALO territory. Waylan Owens, a veteran in the industry with 22 years of sales experience, has nine employees, six of which are dedicated exclusively to sales. This team is a group of highly dedicated professionals who are sales driven and have the experience and understanding necessary to represent quality manufacturers in the hunting, shooting and outdoor sales markets.

“We are very excited to be working with such well-established and sought-after sales teams,” said Sven Harms, Vero Vellini president & CEO. “Their sales experience and market penetration in their territories will certainly help Vero Vellini reach new customers, who now will be able to experience the exceptional quality of our product firsthand.

“We look forward to a long and successful partnership with both Mike Barnes & Associates and Owens Outdoor Sales,” continued Harms.

The company is still seeking qualified commissioned sales reps to represent its premium product line of more than 40 sling and accessory items in a few territories. Interested representatives should contact Donna Walls, at or call 1-800-257-7742.
