    Default PGH Tactical Firearms Sudden Closing

    I haven't found it posted here so hopefully not double posting.

    Yesterday afternoon, Pittsburgh Tactical Firearms in McKeesport put up a Facebook post that is now gone. To the best of my recollection it said they were suddenly closing due to the ATF, and everything needed to be sold before the 8th of this month, "up to 60% off". NFA transfers in process will be handled by the ATF. I can't imagine what would cause the ATF to bring the ban hammer down on them that hard and suddenly. It doesn't seem they knew it was coming, as they were posting on FB and making the news as recently as Monday: http://www.wtae.com/article/mckeespo...nymore/8656811

    It's been a decent shop to visit, stocking a variety of guns and being in touch with what's new and popular. I used them for some transfers.

    I decided to see what they had on my way home and I got there around 6pm. A news camera was set up on a tripod across the street but I didn't see what channel it was. The only story to be reported on was a small store packed with yinzers and some okay deals. Some things may have been discounted heavily but I missed them. I asked about a couple of handguns I would of bought if significantly marked down but was given numbers closer to a 15% discount. Oh well, it was still fun to see the chaos. It's a small shop and it would normally be full with 20 people. There were probably 40 people waiting. They were managing it decently. If you wanted a gun they took your license and put it in line, then they would yell your name when you passed PICS. It was what I imagined every store would have looked like if Hillary had one the election and immediately went on a anti-2A executive order bender.

    So was anyone else there? Anyone got any good rumors about the cause of the closing?

    I'll wait until I have my suppressor in hand for a full review.

    The first rule of a successful business is to not build it in a town that died three decades ago.

    I would call, light up their facebook page, and drop buy before the 6th because once Jhonny law get's involved your heading for a trip down the rabbit hole.
