Giles County gun store sees weekend sales boom
Cars and trucks filled the parking lot of Atlas Tactical on Tuesday, a small Giles County gun shop on the side of U.S. 460 not far from Virginia Tech.
Customers filled out forms for instant background checks and brought in used guns to trade for new ones, particularly the popular AR-15 semiautomatic rifle.
Shop owner Brooke Stallings said she sold three of the military-style rifles on Tuesday alone. And she said sales of all firearms in the shop were up over the weekend following the tragic shootings in Newtown, Conn.
