On Tuesday, agents from the Internal Revenue Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives searched Gunsmoke Guns in Wheat Ridge, Colorado.
Gunsmoke Guns was the location for Discovery Channel’s reality show “American Guns,” which was cancelled in 2012 after its second season.
This is not the first time Gunsmoke Guns was investigated by a federal agency. In 2013, the IRS searched the store as part of an “ongoing financial investigation.”
So far, no charges have been filed against the owner of the store Rich Wyatt, according to the U.S. attorney. But local CBS4 investigator Rick Sallinger learned the shop may have been selling guns illegally.
