Cliff's Notes...
Fox Firearms was using the MDShooters classified ads to advertise their business' items for sale. They were told to stop or pay for Industry Partner (IP) status to advertise commercially here. Fox Firearms decided to file a lawsuit against MDShooters instead of doing what all the IP's here do- pay a modest fee to have a commercial presence on this forum.
They screwed people over by not following the 7 day wait period. My Pop had to wait eight months for his SR45 because the owner asshat had the power and refused to release per the law. The owner was a prick about it when confronted and treated people like crap. I think he tried to sue

They seemed to do okay in the 2013 countdown to HQL-ageddon. They closed shortly before GunBunker(?) in Burtonsville.

I'm surprised <store that shall not be named> couldn't make a go of the current climate. Perhaps customer service ensured no repeat business?

I went into <unnamed> a few years ago due to morbid curiosity. Even then, they didn't seem to have much inventory.

Who knew parting would be such sweet enjoyment.

I over looked Fox's dealings with MDS because I just bought from wherever I could get good prices.

That being said he lost me and I never spoke if them again when he bashed a hunting tournament and anyone who participated with little to no knowledge on the situation.

I am a gun owner but I am huge hunter and take that almost as seriously as gun rights so anyone that thinks hunting is wrong did not deserve my money.

In fairness , the situation in post #21 about early release was NOT unique to Fox . It was delibertly manipulated by the State on multiple levelsl , dynamically moving over time , and responses by retailers was approx evenly 1/3 , 1/3 , 1/3 .

Fox Firearms in Fulton Maryland closing

I mistakenly purchased a KelTek Sub2K Gen2 Glock Mag 9mm for $400, before I knew about the community blacklist.

To this day, this rifle is considered Tainted!

I would just be so ashamed if any members ever saw me using it at the range. Ive relegated it to a potential SHTF bugout backup rifle use only.

I bought an R15 from fox's in 2013,before he started his BS, never did any business with them after that.
As for the Gun Rack, I bought 3 used handguns from Alan in the spring and summer of 2013 and he released them after the 8 day wait. I thought that they were priced fair at the time. I had no issues dealing with Alan, but the heavy set guy that worked there was worthless. The dog was friendly too.

Ah I miss Gun Rack there was a certain amount of fun surliness but they always good used stuff and you could usually wheel and deal a little with them.

There's only 1 way to remove the mark of shame and restore balance to your Karma.

Did he offer Norton compensation for his lost time, travel and effort with his apology?

I am not speaking for the company, but for one employee. I bought my first handgun though them before I knew of the issues with MDS. When I was talking to the salesman (at a Timonium show) and trying to decide between 2 different models, I was commenting about the lack of handgun training local to where I lived. He gave me his number and told me that when I had decided on a gun to call him and he would meet me out at Hap Baker to help me learn how to use my gun properly. Sadly, I never took him up on it.
