Gun Town #2

The Gun Town is a firearms dealer located near Grovertown on US-30 in rural Starke County, Indiana. The building looks like a set of storefronts from a town in the Old West.

The banner on the front of the building says: "We sell ARs...because we're not Dick's."

The banner refers to Dick's Sporting Goods, a large chain store that sells guns in its hunting department. A few months before I made this photograph of The Gun Town, Dick's announced that they were going to stop selling the AR-15 rifle, which is the semi-automatic civilian version of the M-16 assault rifle. Dick's stopped selling the AR-15 because it has been used in several mass shootings in recent years.

The double entendre slogan on The Gun Town's banner has been adopted by small gun shops all over the United States to announce that they won't bow to pressure from gun control advocates to stop selling assault rifles like the AR-15.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
