It was on the 6 pm news on channel 4. A fire broke out in the very back of the store and spread to the processed tire rubber that covers the bullet traps, and then cooked off some of the ammo stored back there. It finally ended with the roof collapsing. Per the news no one was hurt and it appears the stock in the front of the store was OK.

I saw the story on the news too. They tried to save some of the inventory. The good news was no one was hurt.

May be there will be a fire damage sale?

Yeah, now things will only be 11% over retail.


Glad no one was hurt. Hopefully it wont hurt their business too much.

Good group of folks at Shooters. God, I hope they re-open. One of my favorite hangouts while my wife goes shopping at Potomac Mills.
The guys there always found a way to sell me something, and they make good trade deals, too.

I wouldn't doubt but what someone wasn't shooting tracers or something and set the backstop(shredded tires on fire). That was a likely scenario in my mind.

Shooters is rather expensive, and there are alot of yahoo's shooting there. It's packed and the people firing shotguns and rifles in a pistol range wears on you quick.

I didn't like Shooters Paradise before, and doubt I'll be going back once it's online again.
