    Saw that they will be closing up shop at the end of February. Don't like seeing the smaller shops closing up!

    Oh that is sad. When I lived in molalla I was a regular customer and visitor. Great people! Will have to stop in soon and wish them farewell.

    That's not good news, sorry to see them go. I know @WAYNO is a customer of theirs, and has spoken well of them.

    We are having a few shops close down here as well, when you talk with people its box stores that are killing it as more and more new shooters do not build they buy premade and all fixed up.
    Had one that was here decades just close here. :( and another one two years ago keep in mind we are a small area.

    I understand that the owner is retiring. I wish him well, and hope he enjoys his reward for a lifetime of work.

    That is bad news. I bought two guns there about four months ago. Nice folks to deal with.

    I feel their pain. I had to close my little shop at the end of November. I just couldn't compete with the big box stores.

    Move to Molalla a year ago, hoping they would stay around. Oh well...

    The Bi-Mart in town started selling handguns recently, I wonder if that had anything to do with it?
