Texas gun business melts down, dealer gets time for NFA items to boot


When Garrett Rediesel stopped returning calls about his customers’ guns, it was pretty clear that business at the Double D Gun Shop in Victoria, Texas was not on the up and up. Then, this past March, he got raided by the ATF and charged with possession of unregistered NFA items. Some customers still are not sure when they will get their property back.

The unregistered NFA items found in Rediesel’s possession include two short shotguns and two short-barreled rifles. Customers of the shop who are still waiting to see their property returned may have a long wait. But the story serves as a reminder that violations of the National Firearms Act are no joke. Instead of spending $800 on tax stamps, Rediesel will now spend two years in federal prison.

    Interesting writing ! I learned a lot from the information – Does anyone know where my assistant might be able to find a fillable OPM SF 85P example to fill in ?
