Nov 21, 2023

A Westmoreland County gun store owner 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 accused of taking thousands of dollars from customers for guns that were never delivered and failing to provide refunds.

The investigation began in October when a victim contacted Westmoreland County detectives, according to the district attorney’s office. The 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 stopping communication with the victim.

Another victim also reported a similar situation to detectives. The district attorney’s office said this second victim tried to sell a Beretta shotgun to McMahan’s business on consignment for $3,500 but never received the funds.

McMahan has been charged with multiple counts of theft and receiving stolen property by the Westmoreland County District Attorney’s Office. She is also facing additional charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police, according to court documents. She was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bond.
