If the owner of a gun shop and firing range is able to put together the financing to move to Godfrey, it would be a welcome addition to the business community, according to Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick. Scott Pulaski, the owner of Pulaski Firearm Service, was in the process of purchasing the former Colonial Bakery building on Landmarks Boulevard, when it was discovered there was contamination on the property courtesy of of the old Texaco Station on Broadway.
So Pulaski is now looking at the former Riverboat Lanes on Godfrey Road. McCormick says he has few concerns about the possibility of the business looking at Godfrey.
Pulaski says finding the funding for the project will be a major hurdle, so he's trying to put together a group of investors to make this happen. McCormick says once the conceal-carry guidelines are put in place, this business could do well offering the courses to get certified. McCormick does not believe the business would pose any danger to the community.
