    Wow, terrible news indeed. I was a frequent visitor when I was a student in B-town many years ago. His store was one of the few islands of sanity around town where I could enjoy myself. Godspeed, sir.

    Does anyone know what will happen with the store? I saw some young people working in there from time to time.

    I look every time I drive by and see nothing in the parking lot and the inner security door closed. I'm beginning to wonder if the others in the family are gonna give it a go or call it quits.

    The estate has to make its way through probate, but once that is done, it is my understanding that the store will re-open at least for a while. No idea how long the probate process will take. There has been talk that if the store stays open long-term, that the main items that will be reordered will be reloading supplies, ammunition, and ammo cans since those items are harder to get locally/expensive to ship and there is an established customer base that depends on Traildust for those supplies. There is also a tremendous amount and variety of back-stock surplus items, far more than could put out on display, so even as the displayed inventory is sold off you can expect to see some different items come out for sale. It'll be worth stopping in every few weeks just to see what's new.

    Found 30-40 brass there when I couldn't find it anywhere.

    If you ever find yourself running short, it's easy to make from .303 brass. Basically just resize by running it through the 30-40 die, anneal the neck before loading and then fire form. I have a good supply of 303, so that's what I've done.
