It's a forum specifically for Citadel Gun & Safe. Even though it's not in the title, it doesn't make you look any better.

their storefront has been closed for months with no word. I doubt they will reopen under the same ownership from what I have heard when in vegas

the first panic buying put them out of business. they couldn't get any stock to sell once the shelves emptied. it was my favorite store.

It won't ever re-open under the same ownership, since they've all been convicted of felonies for theft of government property (selling stolen USAF equipment).
Arrests were made in 2011. Indictments came in 2012. Plead bargains in 2013.

They had their FFL revoked by the BATFE for selling to non-residents and felons.
Extra money and they let you cash & carry with no ID.

They stayed open in order to sell of their stock of safes, firearm accessories and ammo. Once all that was sold off, they closed shop.

Man... what a bummer I really liked that shop every time I was in Vegas visiting my sister.

Wow... didn't know about the other stuff that went on there
