I should be able to head to Minotaur on Saturday or Sunday.

Tune in...
Same Bat-time.
Same Bat-channel.
Or replace bat with Minotaur in this case.
Whoops.
That pain you feel is the past biting you in the azz.

I had been in to the store a week before and asked the guys about the range and was told things had been slowed down but were still going forward. Then there Facebook site went off and this sign went up. That's when I started emailing and texting the owner.

Mick, i hate to state the obvious, but it looks like the guy is nothing more than a crook. whether it's worth it or not, i would also look into filing charges against him and informing the BATF. i don't know that it would do any good in getting your money back, but it might put more pressure on him in the legal department.

wishing you good luck and you have our sympathies.

Im not taking it any further. With this.post being so high on the Google search results I have done my duty in terms of warning others. I am so glad the new owner jumped in since their comments solidify my assertions

IMO she made a fool out herself and probably did more damage with her threats.

Yesterday's post shows some pretty good discounts on everything.

Celebrating our 1st month of being open, Ms. Schaffer has decided that we are having a massive December sale!
25% off all firearm accessories
10% off all ammunition
10% off all firearms

Hmm. I would think there would be some steep discounts for the first several months just to build a customer base. Are they bugging out?

Most likely. You'd be amazed how many idiots with attitudes and not enough sense of reason or common sense to read up on the laws get ffls. I'm waiting for the shop I previously worked at to post a similar notice. They can't properly fill out paperwork or their books. They can't keep a gunsmith to save their lives. They are constantly pissing off customers with changinging prices,broken promises and just plain sh!tty service and above all they sell illegal guns. It's only a matter of time until some unknowing customer ends up in a sticky situation because they sold them an assault rifle with an illegal 30 round magazine and they sue their butts. They've already be reported to the attorney generals office and had a surprise visit from the atf. They seem to be well on their way to properly replacing the shop that was previously at that location. Did I mention that guy was selling illegal homemade suppressors? He's hiding from the feds somewhere.

i think it's rather humorous how one little forum thread caused such a flurry for them!

JSchaffer only became a member on this forum because of the internet activity from all the negative publicity. being rather evaxive in her anwers andsuch and then the threats!


but i wonder if Minotaur is following on the footsteps of Big Dawg? we can hope!
