About Us

The founder of Nomadlund, LLC, Cory Ley, is a USAF (2x Afghan) Veteran and served as a B-1 Bomber and C-130 crew chief. Growing up in Central Minnesota, the love for the outdoors, extreme sports and searching for the next adventure was constant. Cory acquires a few degrees, which includes a bachelor of science in business administration and is currently training to become a federally licensed gunsmith and mechanical engineer. Nomadlund Outfitters supports exploring America’s great outdoors and constitutional rights as an American citizen. 

AMENDMENT II – A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

By offering high-quality survival, self-defense training and outdoor gear rental, our continued goal is to prepare our community for the unknown and to be ready for it.

While in the military, three (3) core values were taught to live by, which are:

    • Integrity First
    • Service Before Self
    • Excellence In All We Do

As Nomadlund Outfitters’ concept was being built, USCCA (United States Concealed Carry Association) was introduced in 2021. This eventually provided Nomadlund with a top-tier firearm and emergency first aid curriculum to support already established values.

Less than one (1) hour drive time north of downtown Minneapolis, Nomadlund Outfitters provides a 2,000 sq. ft. shop/training facility on johnny’s lake. While visiting, feel free to walk/hike/disc golf the 200+ acre springvale county park next door or within a short drive, grab a bite to eat at pine brook restaurantWant to get away for a day, weekend or entire week?
