England Arms in Killeen Texas
Was at a friend's place about 1400 today when he received a call on his cell. After the call, he told me that the caller (a woman) told him to pick up his rifle from EA, that it hadn't been worked on, but the shop is closing due to the death of the gunsmith. Something about him being killed when a rifle he was testing exploded.
Anybody got any info on what is going on with England Arms?
I have never heard of them..been in the area for over 10 years...do you happen to know where they are located?
Not from the area or familiar with them, but found that story which may be related. Doesn't give a lot of details.
Info I got was he was test firing a pistol when he had a severe back spasm. In the spasm, he apparently crossed his body with the muzzle and shot himself. He's know to have severe back spasm's, the curl up in a ball, falling to the ground type. I'm not 100% on exactly what happened, but that how it looks and sounds to me.
They're in the building where the bicycle shop used to be on the east side of Rancier (just before the turn-in to Long Branch Park)
I've had some work done by them. They were very fast and reasonably priced. I had heard they were under investigation from the ATF for some shady shit, so I Had avoided the place for a few months. This is news to me and it's a sad day.
