FROM THE OWNER:
My name is Fred and I am the owner of Allsport Performance Inc. I was born in Bangor, Me in 1970 and grew up in Carmel, Me and now reside in Hermon, Maine. I am the fifth generation of Emerson's to live in the town of Hermon, Maine. I attended Bangor Christian School until 5th grade and finished JR high at Caravel. I graduated in 1988 from Hermon High School. Back in the 90's I took some small engine classes which spark my interest in doing small engine repairs as a second job. I started my business back in 1997 in Carmel, Maine when I was still working a full time job. I repaired snowmobiles, ATV's, and some motorcycles as well. We moved to Hermon in 1999 and I built a brand new shop. When my daughter were born I decided to stop doing repairs and just concentrate on selling parts and accessories. I continued to run my business part time until the economy went sour. The ZF /Lemforder Corporation in which I worked 21 years closed their doors for good in 2010. This left me with just my business. I started operating my business full time in 2010 and I have tried to gain access to more selection of product to sell and give the best prices possible. I have now added something that was a hobby (Firearms) and added it to my business. I started selling firearms, ammo and accessories in 2011 as well as the same products I have carried for years. I was a collector for many years and my parents had their FFL back in the 80's and 90's. Low overhead means low prices. My main goal is to have the best customer service and prices. Times are tough and I hate to see anyone pay way more then they should and end up in debt. I am trying to turn this into something that hopefully will become my full time job for years to come. As far a the "WE" in the business. Well I am talking about my family of course. My wife, two daughters, sister in law, and my niece all share part of the operation. Without their support I would not have made it this far. We all enjoy going on ATV rides and I enjoy snowmobiling as well. I have owned several motorcycles in the past and miss riding a lot. I am a gun nut as you can see and enjoy hunting as well. I love history ( History Channel ), collecting militaria ( CIVIL WAR, WW I, WW II, KOREA, VIETNAM ) such as firearms, clothing, helmets, bayonets, gear and most antiques and antique and vintage firearms. I love old Colt firearms, Winchester firearms and, Smith & Wesson revolvers. I buy, sell, and trade. THANK YOU VETS! I am so involved in collecting and being a curator of my families 5 generations of collectables (firearms, militaria, local historical items, gas and oil, antique toys, antique fishing equipment, antique snowmobiles, antique bicycles, and much more) that I would like to be involved with or start a museum so I can share my interests with others. A few items are on display in my shop. I am an NRA member and a member of the Penobscot snowmobile club, Central Maine Trail Blazers ATV club, Hampden Rifle and Pistol club, Gun Owners of Maine, and SAM. I am glad you stopped by and I hope to do business with you soon.
