The 24th is there last day. The buildings being demolished and a 4th truck stop/gas station is going in. Just what that area needs .Hadn't heard that, when did they close?
Thats because most shops put the cool older trade in stuff straight to gunbroker. I cant blame them and its there stuff to do with as they please but.......It takes the thrill outta stopping in gun shops and finding cool stuff. You know most likely all your gonna see in the case is Glocks LCRs S&W EZ and .22 rough riders. Not that there's anything at all wrong with those. I just miss the hunt and haggleThat is sad news. They are the only place in the area that would still get some cool older guns in. He told me from estate sales and things like that.
The LGS is closing. I see more rest areas closed than built. Electronic logging devices ELD have been required for semis for a few years now. OTR drivers get a warning from the ELD prior to going over their hours and getting a violation. They need a place to park and refuel. Without the trucks running there won't be goods on the shelf. Seems to be noticeable supply chain problems already. Does the County know about this and wouldn't a big business help their tax base to improve roadways?The 24th is there last day.

The fuel companies getting push back from the county, hopefully they get rejected. We lose the range either way.
i shot competition (USPSA & SCSA) with jim a few times over the years/ he was always a nice guy. i was really bummed when he closed the store on broadway. it was a dun place to hang out and BSUsed to frequent Westworth's from time to time but that's been many years ago. Sad to see a LGS go but I can understand why.
Another place that I used to frequent many years ago was Jim Shema's Outdoor Sports that was located in Merrillville. He owned and operated it with his wife for 31 years. (Wondering how many from the area remember that place?) Shema passed away in Jan. 2023 at the age of 78.
" He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and a champion shooter. Jim was a longtime member of U.S.P.S.A. and a Three Gun Shooter. He loved the outdoors and teaching his nieces and nephews about the great outdoors and training them on firearms."
Yeah he was a nice guy. Me and a buddy of mine used to frequent his store to buy stuff and he always had the time to shoot the breeze with us for a few minutes. We got to know him pretty well. That's the only shooting we did with him though.i shot competition (USPSA & SCSA) with jim a few times over the years/ he was always a nice guy. i was really bummed when he closed the store on broadway. it was a dun place to hang out and BS
