Went past the building where American Outdoor Sports used to be on Rte 109 in Farmingdale and a sign saying we’re Open was out front. Name was,
Advanced Tactical. Anyone have any idea what this is?

I have heard they are part of a chain that cters to law enforcement. I don't think tjey sell guns to the general public.

It is Atlantic Tactical

https://www.atlantic...m/suffolk_store

 

Q: Why did Atlantic Tactical change it’s policy to only allow gun sales to Public Safety personnel?

A: Given our small volume of commercial gun sales and the high cost of liability insurance, we have decided to not renew our commercial gun dealer agreements. We will continue to do business under our Law Enforcement dealer agreements which limit sales to Public Safety personnel. This category includes Fire, EMS, Active and Retired Military with Retired Credentials, Licensed Security Officers, Judges, District Attorneys as well as Active and Retired Law Enforcement officers with Retired Credentials.

NOTE: This policy is subject to state and local firearms laws and regulations. Please know your local and state laws and regulations pertaining to purchase and ownership of firearms.

That is a different store in Nevada.  The one at the old American Outdoor Sports location is Atlantic Tactical.

I edited the title with the correct name.

My apologies. I was driving by so fast the building is shrouded in black netting but there’s a sign out front, now open. I guess it’s Atlantic Tactical. Law enforcement only?
It seemed odd that a gun store would be opening in this area. Thanks for the replies.

While they carry a lot of LE gear I did see anything on their website indicating they only sell to LE with respect to items that would be legal for others to purchase.

i don't know about other products, but they clearly state that they do not sell firearms to the general public.

If they don’t trust me enough to legally sell me a gun (or maybe ammo?) then i don’t trust them enough to sell me anything else. It will be interesting to see what happens.

I think it's more an insurance thing surrounding the sale of firearms

My concern is if all the insurance companies heed our Illustrious guv’s advice, no one will be selling guns to civilians any more. This could put the bug in their ears.

Many years back Charles Greenblatt sold firearms, they eventually became a Law Enforcement only dealer and sold to local police Agencies. They furnished police uniforms for Suffolk County Police agencies for town and villages. As the years went by the store was moving locations offering less inventory. One of my friends who was NCPD swore to never spend a dime because they wanted him to leave a big deposit on a pistol. That was when they sold firearms.

This appears to be the company run by John P. There is (was) a different location in an industrial park. It is not a store, at least the other location was not.

Is it a sign of the times? The cops and military have all the guns. Less and less civilian ownership.

Guns for LE only. Ammo that is not labeled for LE only is available for civilian purchase. Gear and other merch for civilian sale as long as it is not LE only. I guess you see the pattern here.
