Yeah, they went out of business. The end.

Why?
Feds? Were they tired of the business?

ANSWERS, I WANT THEM. :)

I repeat: They went out of business. They weren't making money, or weren't handling their money, or were just crappy at keeping ahold of their money.

They are kaput, an ex merchant, a former place of business, a store no more.

Someone should mention it to Goatboy. Then he could take down their banner ad.

Dunno how much more anyone could elaborate. Harlan posted on this and several boards that they couldn't keep the business going. There's no mystery, no conspiracy. They weren't making enough money.

The bank forclosed on them, IIRC.

I suspect they lost a LOT of their business after they voluntarily surrendered their after-market makarov barrels "ship to" records. I don't believe they were covered by a warrant or subpoena but were "requested" by the alphabet.gov boys. I believe some judge was killed and the forensic evidence linked the murder weapon to the replacement mak barrels they sold. I know it created some concern regarding how quickly they rolled for the feds and what kind/how much customer data they turned over. Probably a no win situation for FAC no matter what they did.
