Il Gun works closed?

Is Il Gun works closed for good? Page not found when going to their site. Looks like they got hit by OSHA for lead but no further work on if they are going to re-open or not. More infor on OSHA
http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owad...SES&p_id=22524
Hope they re-open, this place is 10 min from my place to go shooting and was cheap.

Someone told me they closed too but I just assumed it was because they had nothing to sell anymore. I was there a few weeks ago and the place was empty, even the rental guns were sold. This makes way more sense though. The ventilation system seemed non-existent at their range. Always stuffy and made shooting there unpleasant.

Also just noticed that the OSHA warning was from 2012, wonder if they chose to do nothing until OSHA just shut them down. Also noticed as you said, they have had empty gun cases for months now. Kind of a shitty way to bow out of business if that is what they did. Hope nobody had any guns in the shop for work if this is the case. Irony is that gun shops are doing awesome right now, sales through the roof. Gat's is expanding like crazy right now and building a whole other wing to their building.

Yes, they are closed. They will not re-open, from what I've heard http://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index...howtopic=36299

Wow, interesting. Thanks for the info. Sucks, don't feel like drive way the hell out to shoot, plus the $10 was great.

I live about a block and a half from there. The entire block is being torn down to put up some sort of strip mall. The owner's son is a CLSB member (PaulF4i), I emailed him to find out if they might be moving somewhere else.
