Brick Armory Closed by NJ Div of Taxation ?

Recommended Posts

This picture was just posted on FB and apparently Brick Armory has been shut down by NJ Div of Taxation

 

 

Can anyone who frequents there confirm

 

 

Sucks for those of you who are members or had their guns in there.

Nice... way to go Phil.

 

So happy I cut all ties when they played games with the two M&Ps I bought. I felt like they needed income to pay for the pistols before I could get them, even though I paid for them in full.

 

Hope everything works out for those who had stuff there.

Which FB page OG? I didn't see a link in your post, and I didn't see a reference either on BA's FB page nor the NJSP FB page.... :dontknow:

Firearms seized could be of varying types.

1. owned and paid for by BA

2. owned but BA still owed distributors

3. consignments

4. orders that BA took deposits on

5. firearms that were in for gunsmithing

6. owner's private collection

7. guns paid for but had yet to be shipped out

 

Produce a receipt and explanation and I am sure the NJSP will be happy to assist you right away. :laugh:

I went in there ONCE. Could not believe that I was in the place everyone spoke so glowingly about. I spent two minutes looking at the thrashed ratty guns they had walked out and vowed never to return. While it sucks a range in NJ closed, these guys didn't deserve to stay open. Hope nobody but the principals get screwed, but I doubt it.

This is how I felt about the place when I went there for the first and only time.  It was less than a 5 minute visit.  Place was very 1980's inside.  Half the guns I asked about that were in racks I was told weren't for sale.  Asked about a used 1911 in a display case, and the guy seemed to be bothered by me asking about it. 

There was also a cop in a cop car sitting in the parking lot watching people come and go.  Very odd.

They had this happen a couple years ago, and blamed it on their accountant. That excuse only works once, it seems.

 

Range for sale, cheap?

 

It's funny you mention that. I remember the topic from here a few years back. And I remember it being blamed on a tax error.

I never had a bad tie there or got treated rudely, although I had been forewarned to only buy guns they had in stock. The way they treated Wolfy left a bad taste in my mouth too. 

My biggest gripe was that their range officer was non-existent. I figured out not to go on nights when the Lakewood locals came to demonstrate their poor gun handling skills. I hate getting muzzle swept.

I will say that the young gentleman who was manning the store the Friday night I visited was extremely cordial. He seemed quite sheepish when showing me their "inventory". Hopefully the kid won't be affected by the purported misdeeds of the owner.

 

Good luck to all invested.

I never used them for anything but a range, so i wont make any comments on the "store" (though i will say they never really had much in stock and i knew not to use them for transfers from this forum).  Never really had any problems with the range part except the fact that there were never really RO's present often.  Though, usually when i went, there was hardly anyone else there, so i didnt worry that much.  And it was only 10 or so minutes away

 

This annoys me because I wont go to SS, and i cant really afford a membership to CJ right now...  and nowhere else is close..  $%*(&%#$*&%*#$

I wonder what they Division of Taxation will do with the guns they determine the store owned outright? Normally everything the business owned gets auctioned off when the tax man does a seizure, but this being NJ, would they actually do that? or just crush them?

    • Interesting... no one has gone to step 4 "full-on bunker mode" yet? Of course, it seems some of you replying have two or more people in the household. That's probably a big factor. I live alone... just me and my 7 pound dog. So, I can be low-demand in my food choices... without whiney toddlers (or, worse yet, ravenous teens) in the house! And the supply lasts a lot longer, too. LOL. Yeah, I'm going to curtail restaurant deliveries for awhile... and stay out of grocery stores. I'm not a Howard Hughes-type but I am a nurse's daughter (almost as bad)... so I think food safety is only as strong as the weakest link and some people are just too bloody careless for my tastes. The only thing I'm kicking around is whether I'll move entirely to step 4... or whether I'll partake in 2 small exceptions: 1) There's several places around here where farmers literally place dozens of fresh eggs in coolers by the roadside and you stop by and put your $3 in a tin cup for a dozen. So, it's a relatively people-free exchange. Nice! I might do that. 2) I might also put in 1 Amazon order... just to get some shelf-stable milk, a couple more small jars of mayo, some more tuna, etc. (It won't matter if it doesn't come in for several weeks... and I like the thought of a non-refrigerated order that I can just sit in my dining room for a few days so that any viral load on the packaging will devolve before I'm unpacking it.  That's where I'm at! I figure I'll do this until the end of April, and then see where we're at. How much will the medical community have learned by then...? Maybe some more indications about the clinical trials will be available?... Let's hope so! Fingers crossed.   
    • My wife and I have months of food on hand.  We are burning through some, but I'm getting groceries once a week.   I have been masking and gloving up for a month now.    I am very careful about what I touch and keep my distance from people.   If I need to use the phone, the glove comes off.   I take annual courses in blood borne pathogens and a number of other things, so I am quite aware of how to handle fomites.  Glove discipline is important.     Do the shaving cream on the glove test to see how well you do.   If you're hardcore, use anti-seize or bearing grease ;). I don't think this thing is going to stop food supply, so I will continue to use what is out there, saving ours to give us freedom to NOT go out if it becomes too infectious. I think we're over the hump on this thing though.  Deaths have gone up, but those people caught this 3-4 weeks ago.
