I want to congratulate everybody on having a relatively civil discussion about this. It really does us as 2A advocates any good whatsoever to have people in the business who are not good representatives of our community and I do believe that this Big Dawg and Minotaur stores are just the sort that we do not need. It gives all of us a black eye to have these sorts of businesses representing the wider community.

At the same time, I would welcome Ms. Schaeffer back into the discussion if she can remain civil and not resort to threats again. I think your actions here were deplorable and as I think I predicted, your business has suffered as a result. While I do lament the passing of yet another firearms business, I do not want to see another one out there that does not stand up for the overall firearms community first and foremost.

I also would like to hear from Mike Gilbert if he is available.

If either of you would like to get in touch with me maybe we can work out something on the Podcast. I think this is an important issue among firearms enthusiasts. My email is vikingdad995@gmail.com

Axxe- it seems her head is buried in the sand somewhere. I looked at the posts on the Buckeye Firearms and the most recent one states their store hours sign is down.

http://forums.buckeyefirearms.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=18337&hilit=minotaurfirearms&s tart=15

I was really looking forward to hearing a response from Vikingdad/DrFootball's invitations.

Doesn't look like it's happening. Still, the invite is open. Again, we're not trying to "Pick" on anyone, just trying to tell the story( old Journalism teachers' phrase). Sometimes people don't want their story told...

Mick, i'm sorry you got shafted by these lowlifes and i think it's a good bet you are not going to be reimbursed for your loss.

but there are still some honest gun dealers and ranges out there. hang in there brother.

BTW, very cool looking motorcycle you got! nice!
