Russ and Mary Jo Heavirland - FFL Dealers

Russ and Mary Jo Heavirland are our Federally Licensed Firearms agents for the four annual firearm consignment auctions held at 4R Arena. After spending nearly 25 years in retail firearms, (Soup-to Nuts Gun Shop) buying, selling, and repairing all types of modern and antique firearms, they had a major fire in July of 2006, changing their lives significantly. An association with Reinhardt Auction Service led to federal licensing of our consignment facility and a new chapter for Russ and Mary Jo's lives. The Heavirlands set up auctions for us for many years, and Mary Jo clerked for approx. 20 years. The Heavirlands said that following the fire, the thing they missed most about owning and operating the store were the customers. Serving as FFL agents at the consignment site has rekindled and reconnected them with people, customers and friends, new and old.
Russ and Mary Jo's crew are also very experienced "gun people". Two of them are NRA and MN Certified Firearms Instructors and teach concealed carry classes many times per year. Another has over 30 years of law enforcement experience. All are longtime firearms, reloading and outdoor enthusiasts.
The Heavirland's long history in the industry and Reinhardt Auction Service's 40+ years in the full-time auction business which now includes on-line bidding, takes firearms sales to a new level. Whether buying or selling, we are the team that can achieve your expectations on a state and national level.
In their free time, Russ and Mary Jo like to hunt, fish, and spend time with their three grandchildren, Brooke, Ethan, and Nathan.
