Earlier today, Governor Wolf declared gun dealers to be life-sustaining. This means that the Verona Gun Safe will resume operations on a limited basis.
For the foreseeable future, we will operate under the following guidelines:
We will continue to post all inventory to the website. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we will limit what firearms are on display in the showroom. This will allow us to track and sanitize what has been handled. Please review the website before your appointment if you intend to purchase a firearm in order to limit what must be handled and to expedite the transaction process.

As most people are already aware, Governor Wolf issued a mandatory shutdown notice for most businesses effective 8 p.m. Thursday. Throughout this ordeal, the Verona Gun Safe has been determined to remain open for business until forced to close by official government action. That time has come. On advice from our counsel, Eric Jackson Lurie, Esq., we are suspending retail operations ahead of State enforcement action and in compliance with the governor's notice.
The decision to close has been a difficult one, but supporting factors (aside from government mandate) include customer health and safety, dwindling firearm inventory, depleted ammunition stocks, and supply chain delays.
We will monitor the situation closely to determine how to accept shipments in the coming days and weeks. If we learn that firearm sales and transfers can be lawfully conducted by appointment, we will do so. We will accommodate layaways affected by this closure, and we do not anticipate a need to adjust our one-year pickup policy.
While the physical showroom is closed and all business is temporarily on hold, we will be checking and replying to email on a continuous basis. If first-time buyers have any questions about their new guns, please reach out. If you are in need of assistance of any kind, firearm related or not, please reach out. We will do our best to help our community in any way possible as we navigate this unprecedented state of affairs.
Please watch this space daily for updates.
