Feds seize nearly 400 firearms from distributor

West side gun bust

Authorities seized 391 firearms valued at $224,000 from G2 Sport Products after a monthslong investigation.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Federal authorities said Wednesday they seized nearly 400 firearms after they found a far-west side distributor illegally transferred guns out of the state, made false entries in records and failed to report multiple sales.

G2FS LLC, also known as G2 Sports Products and G2 Firearms Sales, also had knowingly transferred guns to a prohibited person, said a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

G2FS LLC operated from at a building with storage units at 8250 Indy Court, according to an online search. That address is off Country Club Road south of West 21st Street.

The store’s owners agreed to surrender their federal license and cannot reapply for the license or deal in firearms in the future. The owners also agreed to the seizure of approximately 390 firearms, silencers and receivers — including rifles, shotguns and handguns — with an estimated value of $224,000. The firearms were seized Tuesday.

The seizure came after the April indictment of Scott Genung for being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

Court documents said undercover investigators in February and March purchased a Radical Firearms 5.56 semiautomatic rifle, two Glock 9mm pistols, a Taurus 9mm pistol, a Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver, a Riley Defense 7.62 semiautomatic rifle and at least four boxes of ammunition from Genung, a convicted felon, at G2 Sports Products.

Gunung was carrying a Sig-Sauer 9mm pistol during some of the transactions although he was prohibited from doing so, court documents said.

Genung was listed as a resident of Zionsville in a 2001 court case.

Court documents listed Genung as president of ROMAR at 8247 Indy Court and “customer service” of G2 Sports Products. The businesses are in the same building.

The release said a team of special agents, auditors and industry operations investigators with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives led the investigation with assistance from Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Fishers Police Department, Zionsville Police Department and the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
