Pittsburgh-Area Gun Store Owner Faces Theft Charges Following Investigation into Sales


Nov 21, 2023

The owner of a gun store in Westmoreland County is facing charges after an investigation into her business sales, the district attorney’s office announced. Tracey McMahan, owner of Hi Grade Shooting Supply, is being charged with multiple counts of theft and receiving stolen property following two incidents involving customers who paid money for guns that were never delivered.

In one incident, a victim paid McMahan $4,600 to buy a combo shotgun through her business but never received the gun or a refund. McMahan allegedly provided excuses, saying the firearm was lost in shipping or damaged before she stopped communicating. In another incident, a second victim tried to sell a Beretta shotgun to McMahan’s business on consignment for $3,500 but never received the funds.

McMahan was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond while awaiting trial. The Westmoreland County District Attorney’s Office also stated that she is facing additional charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police.
