Is Ron closing up this shop? A different thread seemed to say that he was closing up in February?

Crufflers mentioned it in this thread.

Say it isn’t so? I’d hate to see that shop go. It is a great operation. Anyone have any more information?

No answer but no message for days and times open.

I was there on Saturday. It's true. I was sorry to hear the news, Ron has been my go to for transfers. His store always had the most welcoming atmosphere, especially for new shooters.

I was texting a week back with Ron.
Never said anything about this.
Damn!

No, he didn't go into detail. He did say to let people know he is still happy to place orders for guns he doesn't have in stock. As for the inventory on hand, all of the non-consignment guns had sale stickers on them. I picked up a Shield for $389.

Was just in doing a transfer. I wondered why his inventory was getting so low.

Bummer he was a great dealer. Now have to find another FFL.

Golden State Tactical gone Armory Outpost gone.

Yes, he's been closed for the holidays and will reopen Jan 2. I saw the sign on Saturday. Per my brother who has a gun on consignment, he is closing in Feb, but I cant remember if it is Feb 1 or the end of the month.

What a shame. One of the best shops in the metro Sacramento area. Ron was always fair with prices and service.

I have been trying to get a hold of him for a couple months after leaving the state but havent been getting replies. I hope he is OK, its sad to hear, but I know the stress over the last several months was hard on him.

I just saw a thread on Turners having a Sac store now. Probably not good for the local good guy FFL's, they are already cutting margins so low.

Good luck to Ron in the future.

I don't know that he's set a specific date, but it will probably be closer to mid-February.

Son of a *****. Ronís shop is less than a five minute drive from my house. First GST and now AO. This blows.

I picked up a couple of guns there and it was not fun seeing the shop like that.

I wish Ron all the best and I hope he has more free time to go to the range and enjoy the hobby he loves now.

It was my favorite shop.
