Just heard from a pretty reliable source that shooters supply is closing its doors. Anyone else heard anything about this?

Someone on here mentioned catching the tail end of a radio add about it. No confirmation though

Skip did them in.

Seriously, there have been a number of stores open in Louisville and SS seems to run a high overhead.

Heard in the radio ad there is a sale, up to 30% off if i heard it right. Also heard "everything must go" so i bet the % off gets higher later. I am like SOL wonder who will pick up the reloading supplies trade. Is reloaders supply still open in Jeff? Now that the east end bridge is open that would be reasonably convenient.

When you walk in and there is one other customer in the store and 8 employees standing around chit chatting...

Their Safe prices weren't bad though...lol

30% off sale? That should put the pricing just about normal.

When people would go in and ask for a starter gun to learn on you had Skip trying to talk them into a $2,000 AR with $1,500 worth of accessories.

last time i was in there they didn't have enough pistols to fill up 1/2 the show cases.

My LGS told me a year ago that they were in big debt to their distributors and that any sales they held were to make cash to pay the Dist.

I may go over today at lunch. I have heard the radio ads, but their facebook page doesn't have any pricing etc. Anyone get a deal on anything there yet?


Skip will probably get a job at Lotus 2.0.... :D

10% off new guns puts them about normal. Just came back from there to check it out. About 10 other folks walking around, but not much buying. Didn't see any deals. 30% off on cleaning supplies, but they were still high. 20% off on pistol ammo and 10% off on rifle ammo. .22 ammo was $22.99 for federal 325 pack.
