New gun shop in St Mary's?

Heard today that someone has or will be opening a gun shop in the old Dyson's hardware building down by Ridge. Anyone have any gouge?

It'd be nice to have someone to be competitive to TTB

The Tackle Box bought up an estate. They have quite a few Parker shotguns, and other antique rifles/shotguns.

I know the new owner of that building. I seriously doubt that it will be a gun shop.

Hmm... Heard it from the local who cuts glass and mirrors for my shadowboxes.

No way...I live 1/2mile from D's. I'd rather drive to Fred's than D's.

Just to clarify, I don't think that he's anti gun or anything. Just that he already owns his own business and is busy with it.
I hear that if you're "in" with "D" you can get some good deals. Problem is that very few people are "in" with him...

Dicks will be good for cheap ammo, and the occasional sale to get guys in there. Sort of like walmart does now.

Otherwise, I stick to good and knowledgeable service.

That is if Nick's hours are good for you. My schedule and his hours are incompatible for the most part. I realize, he has to keep his day job.

Accurate Guns and Ammo is my go to FFL.

I have heard you talk of them several times and they seem to be good from your reports. I have as of yet needed a transfer outside of a new purchase, you on the other hand have a "habit" to feed that far outpaces mine....$$ is my problem more than desire.
