Who owns it now, and what happened to steve?

There was Steve that actually owned the 2 ranges, he is an older guy with a beard and glasses; then there was Steve Hysell, the guy that was in his 30s. He just ran the shop for Steve the owner.
I was in the AIM range the other day when Steve the owner came in and talked with Jerry Jockisch, the current owner and manager of AIM.
The Saraland store was closed do to the "...bad management that had been in place." I don't know why he is closing the Old Shell Road store. I think it was doing more business than the Saraland one.

Jerry seems to be making a good go at succeeding with the Saraland store, looking for ways to make the customers happy. I think he is going to be a lot freer with copes of his FFL. This means if you find an out of state purchase you want, he will do the transfer (for a fee) and you can have it sent to him and then come in and do your paperwork.

I hope he succeeds, I hate to see a range close. Now, if we can just get some better fans and vents in the back of the range...........

Older steve is a true gun person and you can't get away from him when you start talking guns. I really like the guy. I went in the Saraland shop 1 time to buy a gun and young Steve was out for the moment but I got what I wanted and all the papers signed the girl behind the counter was just waiting for him to come back. First walks in his attitude, followed by his body I had already been waiting for somebody to take my money and noone else was in the store, he procedes to eat his McDonalds while he knows I'm waiting and have been waiting. In hind-sight I should have just walked out but I really wanted the rifle. I swore I'd never go back and never have. Even at the gun shows I just walk around his table and don't even bother to look cuz I'd never buy from him anyway no matter the price. I feel sorry for his wife if he has one. Older Steve is great.Young steve...........the worst salesperson ever. The Saraland shop never had a chance although it hung in there longer than I thought.
