What happened to County Line Firearms?

Recommended Posts

Had a firearm sent to them for a transfer. It was delivered on Aug 9th and signed for. No call that it came in up to this point. 

Emailed them Mondaythe 19th, and FB messaged Wednesday with no reply. Went to County Line Firearms store front today to pick up a transfer. There is a note on the door stating they are open Thursdays only and there is a phone number to call to make appointments. Called the number and it went straight to voicemail. Left a message with my number to call me back. 

Does anybody know what's going on with that place? I'm trying to give them the benefit of the doubt, but I'm not getting a good vibe.

Previous owners of CLS are now at Reloaderz.

New guy I spoke with once but no follow up.

Owner is Essex County Law Enforcement full time. Call the number and he’s usually available after 2pm. Chris is good people 

That makes sense. I have to leave my personal phone off at work as well.

chris just posted in my mewe group chat, you can text him also. he says he usually responds to texts more than anything 9738410505

Thank you I'll reach out to him. 

I'm glad it's reduced schedule due to work. In the back of my mind I was thinking about that shop (I forget which one) that closed and had all the firearms in the FFL ledger (causing a headache for the owners to retrieve their firearms).

    • You cant carry a gun here, but as long as your not a prohibited person and over 18 you can carry a taser if your worried about your safety.
    • Business to Business gifts mostly but really anything you've ever seen with a company name and logo on it.   We used to make all of it here, now we just finish it here or do some final assembly.  Some things, like many paper items can be sourced locally, but most of the items that have plastic components are injection molded in China and to a lesser degree Thailand or Malaysia.  
    • My point was, typically, business cycles are like 6 - 8 years, before a reset. Of course, that's not set in stone, and it depends on the underlying economic conditions. But, many of the underlying conditions that have negative affects on the economy, have been there for the last few years, but the cycle continues... I talk to all my financial guys, and they all say we're way past due for a major correction, and it's coming, but no one knew when that would be. None of them think the underlying conditions are healthy, most of it doesn't make any financial sense, so they just shrug their shoulders, and say let's make money while we can. It may appear to you, and other MAGA people, that the overall economics have been strong, but the patient has been kept alive by "life support" of artificially low rates, and a defibrillator (monetary games). Remember, the FED lowered rates 3 times last Fall, to "juice" the market. That DOESN'T happen in a "healthy" economy and market. It just maybe, that someone just pulled those plugs...
    • I started reloading in the 60's with my dad. I always enjoyed reloading with him. He thought it was a great way to save money on hunting loads. We were loading paper shells back then, with waxed and fiber wads. Times evolved, and prices went up. In 1995 I was still reloading shotshells for $.10/round with components bought at the local gunshops whenever I stopped in for a visit. When components were everywhere, it never dawned on me to buy in bulk.   Then things changed. Primers became scarce, lead shot became scarce and the new precious metal, gunpowder became hard to find, etc. Local gunshops stopped carrying wads, powder, and soon all reloading components and accessories, etc.  But I still reload 12, 16 & 20 gauges. I can tailor and make any load in any combination that I want. That's why I do it.  Cheap factory shells today are cheap for a reason. Brass washed steel bases instead of brass are tough on chambers and reloading equipment. The low antimony shot they use often make for inferior patterns. Unless you opt for a quality plastic shell, most of the cheap shells are also inferior to reload with. Are the cheaper factory loads okay for impromptu hand-thrown clay bird sessions? Sure they are. Can you hunt with them? Sure you can. Can you break clays from the 16 yard trap line or Station 4 on a skeet field; of course you can. Then again, no Olympic shooter that I know of is using factory Remington Gun Club's today.   If you don't hunt, are only an occasional shooter, don't have a need to make 2 1/2" shells for your old doubles, don't have a need to roll 3/4 oz. 20 ga. loads to save money, don't have a need for 7/8 oz. 12 ga practice loads, don't have a need to make your own buckshot loads or don't have a need to make a heavy 16 ga. pheasant load; then it may not make much sense to reload.  Wakeman's take on quality shells is a good read:  https://www.chuckhawks.com/good_shotgun_shell.html    
    • I would argue that periods of time where growth stalls or retracts are caused by bad economic policy not just a cyclical foregone conclusion.  Prior to the 80s and back to the great depression the recessions in growth where a few to 5 or 6 years apart. Horses have four legs but everything with four legs isn’t a horse.  It may be that policy swings and resulting consumer sentiment has cycled with a 5 to 10 year period.  But that doesn’t mean the period doesn’t change or that its not possible to go much longer periods of time without a contracting economy. Don’t know.  I’m not a financial analyst. I’m a technologist. Want me to look it up?
