but it shows how you could go touch and hold many nice old guns. Maybe that was an issue with BATF...having guns on an open rack. Maybe we will never know why they got hammered. ATF made him agree not to disclose why he got closed.
Ut oh..wonder what kind of shenanigans were going on or if it was just enough mistakes made on 4473's that ATF said thats it. Never been in that shop. Sad for them since they were around so long. I'm suprised Bullseye in Tacoma didn't get completely shut down after having a rifle walk out of there unnoticed(D.C. Sniper stole a rifle during business hours) but they were forced to pay $2 million dollars to the victims families from a lawsuit.
quote: A spokesman for the ATF also refused to provide details about Kesselring's license.
Was the license surrendered or revoked? Bill Perkins from the Seattle office of the ATF won't say. A July 2 post by the shop on its Facebook page said the business is being forced to surrender its license.
Don Kesselring said the business will continue to sell gun parts, clips, magazines and ammunition, while his brother, Keith, will sell firearms out of a pro shop at a shooting range in Burlington once it opens. Kesselring Gun Shop is also prevented from providing gunsmithing services.
We had a local gun shop that operated in the evenings and on weekends that I used to like to frequent. He was shut down and spent a few years in prison for buying Hi Point pistols in bulk and selling them to gangstas in Detroit.
