The prices there have always been outrageous. So I just look and go elsewhere.---Damrons is just around the corner, and a lot friendlier. IMO

He used a person from lubbock when i used him. He was very good and reasonable.

Just saw an ad in the Amarillo Globe News that says they are "liquidating" (read-shutting down) on Feb. 2. They're auctioning everything off. Anyone know about this?? Got a friend who has a safe on order with them. Is the owner about to take the money and run?????

I saw that too and remembered that about 20 years ago when Bill took over the old gun shop on sixth street, don't remember the name of it, and my buddy had left a riffle there for repair only to go back and find them out of business. They had his phone number but never called.

Yea I heard and will probably go to the auction on Sat.  Auctions usually seem to get top dollar, and that seemed to be the going rate there.  Liked the shop but thought they were a bit high on stuff.  Did have some nice pieces though when I was in there last.  Nice stuff, but high.  Hate to see any shop close down though.  The way guns have been selling everywhere it surprises me.  Maybe they got rich and retired to somewhere with better tax rates.  Heard that was the thing to do. 
Thats just crazy talk.

I spoke with the owner a couple of weeks ago and he said his wife told him it was time to drop the hobby and get a real job.  They were always friendly to me even though me and their prices never meshed.  Hate to see a local shop go out of business.

Over priced guns. Rude as hell staff. Horrible selection. Stupid hours. Glad to see them go!
