Hey all,

 This might be old news.

 I drove past the his place today and noticed that The Gunshop portion   has been gutted.... I can only hope that he's going to take the WHOLE building back  like the good ol days.   was getting kinda cramped in there.

I seriously doubt he's going back there again. The SCPD seized his firearms and released his inventory to another FFL.
The SCPD commissioner at the time of Chesters arrest is now the DA.

It was an FFL from upstate, I thought it was Fur Fin and Feather in Livingston Manor. The owner had a decent collection a few months back and asked him if this came from a gun shop that closed or a personal gun collection.
Rich said he's heard about a local FFL took his enclosed trailer and loaded up at least a 1,000 Fireams. I would imagine Chester lost his shirt on them.

He had some really nice levers. There were a few I was still drooling over.

I noticed a few pre 64 Winchester some of the flat band models at that shop. I think the owner Rich scored some of Chesters Leveraction for him to say it was an FFL in the area.
The prices seem to have gone up sadly on the post 64 Winchester 1894 models. The pre crossbolt Angle Eject models are more desirable now.

I thought I saw that F, F, and F was up for sale a few years ago. I would stop in there when I was at Onteora SR

As noted in my post. At the time of his collar. The SCPD Commissioner is now the DA in Suffolk.
His case isn't like Marty from T&T with a vindictive NCPD officer involved with running the Pistol License section and a Nassau DA with a political motive to arrest.

 Agreed.....  I'd like to know  what the circumstances  are  or was... he always seemed to  do everything by the book.

Call before you head over to his store to make sure he's there. John needs to update his website. He offers private NICS checks. $10 is what he charges for private Safe Act sales. He has a large inventory in the store. You have to catch him at the right time for deals.
