One Year Ago: New Gun Shop in Town
by Bobby Blair 12/10/11
When HollistonReporter.com published this article about the new business in town, we were not prepared for the ensuing controversy.
Have you run out of ideas for that perfect gift for Christmas?
We logged well over 100 comments, both for and against, about a gun shop in Holliston.
There's an unusual new business in downtown Holliston, a gun shop.
Holliston's newest business downtown is Mark Heavner FFL (Federal Firearms License). Heavner's gun shop is located at 838 Washinton Street next to the Middlesex Savings Bank.
Heavner stocks a full range of pistols as well as long rifles. Heavner, who grew up in town, has his own contruction business as well as being an on- call fireman for the town's fire department.
With the construction trade a "little slow" and the thought of retirement coming up, Heavner decided to put his interest and knowledge of guns into a practical means.
In his second year of business Mark expects to sell about 700 rifles, shot guns and pistols, far exceeding his expectations. His customers are mainly members of local clubs, trap and skeet shooters, and competition pistol shooters. The store takes trades and guns on consignment. Gift certificates are also available.
Heavner said: " Business is booming! We now have regular hours (see below). The website is still www.hollistonfirearms.com but it has grown".
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 3:00 to 6:00 pm
Thursdays 4:00 to 8:00 pm
Saturday 9:00 to 1:00
Any time by appointment!. Call me.
