Feds endorse new owner for gun shop

SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER STAFF

TACOMA -- Federal regulators have approved transferring the ownership of the Tacoma gun store that was the source of the rifle linked to the Beltway snipers who terrorized the nation's capital last fall.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on Friday granted a firearms license to Chris Kindschuh to own and operate Bull's Eye Shooter Supply, according to an ATF spokesman and lawyer Jim Frush, who represents former owner Brian Borgelt.

The sale of the store and its stock has been in process for months. Borgelt had little choice but to sell Bull's Eye after the ATF revoked his federal firearms license at the beginning of the month.

Frush said yesterday that Borgelt plans to appeal the revocation in U.S. District Court.

But he said that Borgelt has no intention of starting another retail operation.

Borgelt will continue to operate a shooting range in the same building as Bull's Eye, said Frush.

Borgelt owns the building and will be the landlord of the store, Frush said. But he will have no involvement in its operation, Frush said.
