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


Nov 20, 2023

In October, Westmoreland County detectives received a complaint from a victim who had paid Tracey McMahan, owner of Hi Grade Shooting Supply, thousands of dollars for guns that were never delivered. This prompted an investigation into McMahan’s business sales, and the district attorney’s office has charged her with multiple counts of theft and receiving stolen property.

According to court documents, one customer paid McMahan $4,600 for a combo shotgun 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. Another 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 after being accused of not providing goods in exchange for payment and ignoring communications from customers. She is also facing additional charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police.
