Default Metal Dog Tactical in San Jose is Closing!

It's been a roller coaster of a ride here in California as an FFL, but it's time to pack up shop and move to Texas!

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has supported us through the years! From operating an online store, selling at the local Gun Shows in San Jose, Cow Palace and Vallejo since 2008 to finally our brick and mortar store in San Jose since 2010!

We will be around until the end of October to early November.

I hope to continue to support CA Gun Owners any way I can and will follow the laws as they progress.

Until then, thank you again to the Calguns.net community!

Was always worth the trip driving up from South Salinas Valley to visit your store. Thanks

Really hate to see a gun store close up shop here in California.

But I understand why, I don't think anybody can fault you for trying to do better for your company and trying to do better for your family. Best of luck in your new venture.

An absolute shame, but I'm sure you'll have a great time in Texas. Thanks for being a damn good Bay Area gun store.

One of the truly good FFLs in the Bay Area. While I will hate you guys are leaving, I wish you the best of luck in Texas. One of the few FFLs that spent the time explaining to out of state FFLs about CA laws and shipping stuff here. I have Tunis to thank for my HK P7 PSP. Itís a gun I will keep.

We will miss you. Got to meet you folks at ShotShow a few years ago and you expressed how tough it was to conduct business in Kali. Where are you going to be in Texas?

Stay tuned...

Tunis, I always enjoyed our back and forth business dealings and referrals to each other for our customers. It was always nice to deal with you and your business.

You may or may not know we closed on Aug 31 so we can enjoy full time retirement. I wish you good luck with your new store in a free state.

Disappointed to hear this. You guys are one of the very few shops with good attitudes that don't treat your customers like Sh*#. Good luck to you down the road. Oh yeah, PM me if you don't want to take your dog to TX! I'll gladly take him off your hands.
