    That's too bad.

    I used to ride my bike to that store as a kid to look at the guns.

    I haven't been in there in years, since I don't buy cigarettes and I hate cigarette smoke.

    This sucks! I don't see how they were able to get in. I thought they had a solid front door. The place is built like a little fortress!

    By the way, Dr. Mark, I was in there the other day to see if they would accept the VCDL pamphlet rack (they did) and I didn't smell any smoke at all. Maybe a new policy???

    Sorry to hear of this. Didn't even know they were there as many times as I've been in Yorktown.

    Trust that the BGs will get long term room and board.

    Good... I'll have to drop by, assuming they're open.

    Supporting local gun shops, in general, is a good thing.

    I went in there about a month ago for the first time in a LONG time and the 2 ladies seated in the back of the store (where the gun section is) were chain smoking; lightingone after another. I found it difficult to breath, but I had to stick around to look at the wonderful collection of older rifles they have on the back wall.
