    I thought Charlie Hu was just the manager and Louis Imperato (owner of Henry Repeating Arms) actually owned the business. Charlie Hu wasn't the greatest when it came to customer relations.

    Sad to see them go.

      Oh yes, I remember now. The place I was thinking about was called The Gun Shop.
      Have a nice day.

        Research shows that 67% of people who use the term "research shows" are just making shit up.

          The store, which was known for its sign depicting a revolver, was founded in 1911 by John Jovino who sold it to the Imperato family in the 1920s. It remains in the family. The store was once located at 5 Centre Market Place, part of a gun district behind the former police headquarters on Centre Street, but later moved to its present location.

          The store "does about $1 million worth of business annually", a figure which was higher before the New York Police Department opened an internal firearms bureau. The company used to own a gun factory in Brooklyn, the only one in the city, which made Colt M1911 pistols and reproductions of American Civil War-era Henry rifles. The company, known as Henry Repeating Arms, moved its headquarters from New York City to Bayonne, New Jersey, in 2013.
