I have not posted in a long time but have some sad news the owner Sean passed away this morning.
His sister was there when I stopped by today and was outside and gave me the news.
If you have something there you can contact her. I will PM her phone number or you can see it if you go there on the door. Please do not bombard her any delays will be out of her hands until ATF and DOJ do inventory.
RIP to Really good guy.

Very sorry to hear this, when I had a PPT that far south, I'm up by Santa Maria, his shot was great, fast, no Turners type bull and he was a cool character that make a DROS situation very fun. Everytime I went there his friend was there with a big Cosco pizza too ! Rest in peace and may all your shooting ranges not be closed by bulls**t regulation.
Oh no, not another 1911 !

Iíve lived in SCV for many years and have been wanting to go to that store for a long, long time. But I never did. Thatís what I get for procrastinating. Sounds like I missed meeting a genuine good guy. RIP good guy.

Bought my first handgun (sig p226) from him at Oaktree back around 2004ish. He was a nice guy and was very knowledgeable. Sad to hear we lost another good one, RIP Sean.

Damn, that's some sad news. I met Shawn through a friend probably 25 years ago and have done many transactions with him over the years. Used to go in and pick his brain and BS with him. Really a nice, knowledgeable guy. Was so happy for him when he got his own shop and I'm really sad to hear of his passing. He wasn't that old- any word on what caused his death?
