    I just found out today that Anne Arundel Gun and Pawn, in Glen Burnie, was officially sold two weeks ago. From what I heard, the new owner has been able to transfer both 01 and 03 FFL's as well as the Pawn Shop Certificate.

    I don't know who it is that bought it but almost anything will be better than the last owner. He used to be a good guy but, after getting hit in the head when trimming a tree, his whole personality changed.

    Hopefully someone who lives close can stop in and give us a report.

    I tried to buy a Sig P365X there about a year ago. They blew me off and said they can't get one because it is a high capacity gun. I ended up going to 2A Sales and bought the Sig, an M&P Shield Plus and a Glock 19 from them.

    I knew the owner, Phil Griffith when he was on Central Ave in Old Glen Burnie, quite a few years ago.
    I don't know about the tree hitting him on the head, but he did have a heart attack and lost his pilot's license. I know that he wasn't happy about that.

    Phil Griffith was owner #2. He is/was brother-in-law to a friend of mine.

    Phil had brain injury from an 8 inch branch hitting him in the head. He was trying to save some money by taking down a tree that was torn up during a hurricane. I have lived with several relatives that suffered from brain injury and their personalities all changed some.

    I would stop in and talk to Mr. Phil and his staff about once a month. He'll share some good stories once he gets to know you. I didn't always buy something, but I never had a bad experience. I met the new owner a couple weeks ago and he seemed pretty cool. He's planning on doing some updates and making some changes. I'm very happy to hear the 90-day layaway will continue.

    I happened to be down that way last Oct. '23 and stopped in. I hadn't been in there for about three years. Walked out after about three minutes in there. A lot of room for improvement to be had there!

    Is this the "Arundel Firearms and Pawn" at the corner of Maple and B&A?

    As long as it doesn’t go all tacticool and look like Worth A Shit. I kinda like the old guns and small shop feel. Biggest issue was the hired help in my opinion.

    I remember the shop from back before the killing and pre pawn.

    Back when it was called Colonial, it was a real gun shop.
    It was/is still one of the last real gun shops,, they have a ton of New Old Stock in the back,, about 2 years ago I asked if they had a Ruger 96/22,, he went in back, got a big step ladder out and was going through a mountain of old boxes that was floor to ceiling. Brought out a new in box 96/22, it went home with me.
    I remember the wooden barrels of used shotgun barrels, etc.
    A white slat wall with 15 ARs just leaves me cold,,,,

    What's a "real" gun shop? No accessories, revolvers and lever guns, with men smoking, playing poker in the back? Tripping over crates of corrosive ammo on the floor, moldy cotton duck discount surplus gear, and of course, no women allowed signs?

    Pretty much :) . ( Except for the No Wimmin sign )

    Added - To change the context , imagine a world that only had franchised hanging plant yuppie joints , and no more old school neighborhood bars or roadhouses .

    There's a place for both .
