    Yeah, over the years, I've not seen a whole lot of positive comments about the staff at AA.
    Personally, I always got the feeling I wasn't worth their time when I was there looking at things.

    We did buy the G19 there in appreciation of all the time he spent helping us out that day.
    This was many years ago though and it's not convenient, so I haven't been there in a long, long time.

Not just because the prices are high, but the whole place is much more upscale than any shop I've been to.

    I was expecting something other than a sale to a non PA resident to be the cause of a FFL revocation.
    Seems strange.
    Its been about 2 years since I've been there and it sure went down hill. The ace just looked dirty compared to how it used to be. Guns just tossed in the glass cases that were mostly empty etc...

    If a Shop loses their FFL, how do they get rid of remaining Inventory ?

    It's a really nice shop but their prices suck. They had to pay for those fancy bathrooms somehow.
    Hope this is not Chris's blood ...

    Typically they are given so many days to sell their inventory to another FFL.

    Yeah, well, I suspect their location is strategic.

    There are three local fire companies which use AA for their gun bashes which will be occurring in the next few months. Itís going to be interesting to see what happens.

    Didnít they lose their FFL once before?

    I am acquainted with some people who worked there in recent years, didn't like it, and moved on.

    From what I recall hearing, Anthony Arms was a side business for the owner of Anthony Crane, and when the boss retired from the crane business he dug into the gun store business as a retirement gig and was just making it craptastic.

    I have been to the indoor range once with someone using a "free range time coupon", and stopped into the store to browse around a few times when I was in the area and had time to kill. I won't miss it.

    As of this past Sunday, they were unable to do any PICS checks and I was unable to pick up a gun I had on layaway from 12/8. Was told their license "is in litigation" and to check back later this week but no real idea what was going to happen.
