They had the display cases on craigslist the other day so must have been recently.

Yup, they're gone. You can look for a replacement here (http://shooting.forsandiego.com/Stores.html).

That place was ok. I only liked to check the used guns out. Who has a good stock of used guns now?

I went to Fine Firearms in La Mesa the other day....was looking at some of their used guns on the acts, the tags on them looked like the tags from SoCal guns, so maybe they got some of their stock....

Yeah closing was too bad, Not enough local gun shops as it was.

I found a few nice deals on used guns there over the last few years.

I never had problems with them doing PPT's either..

It sucks when a local shop closes, but I can't say I was too bummed about that one.

I'm guessing Turners cut their margins pretty low over the years, and the lack of inventory from distribution soon after this panic made it pretty easy for them to close shop. They had a good run, and I'll miss the shop dog.

they got a knock on the door from the ATF. Apparently they got caught improperly dealing 80% lowers. Your not suppose to sell a 80% thats been machined so tech its a firearm or assemble them for a customer. You can sell 80% lowers and all parts necessary but thats it. Some how they forgot that last part.
