Pat Burns. I'd have to check the paperwork, but that's just about the time I bought mine from them. I had the pleasure of talking to Bill Burns on the phone. I'd been warned not to call him Pat - Pat being his wife, and at that point the one in the family that could hold a FFL.

One of my receipts she sent a photo of her ny drivers license. She had some great guns. They became bargains in hindsight.

Remember that 2008 was the year of the Great Recession. Firearm auction prices post-crash were depressed. The only time I've seen that happen in my lifetime.
Got my Israeli HB FAL kit from Bill Burns for a whopping $125. One of the best bargains in my lifetime. Built it up on an Entreprise Israeli Match receiver.

I have 4 from her.
God Bless Pat.
Always fair, always nice when you contacted her. She really did have some great guns.

I think I got 3 guns from Pat Burns, and many spare parts from their eBay store.

A guy at a Thurmont Conservation and Sportsman Club Mosin match told me about Pat Burns and I bought a nice 42 SAKO in a wartime stock.

I was saving up to get a VTK and a SKY when a few months later she stopped selling.

I just found out recently it was the NJ attorney general the forced her to stop selling, as if I needed another reason to hate NJ

NJ is particularly unfriendly to C&R holders as they don't recognize it. Not sure which state would be at the bottom of my never-move-there list: CA or NJ. Sadly it's a close competition.
