i noticed it was in slc, where was it exactly located?? thats in west valley isnt it?
Yes, it is (was) in West Valley. It's actually only about a couple miles from my in-laws home so; I used to spend quite a bit of time there. The store has since changed hands and is now an Impact Arms store.
I stopped frequenting the "Totally Awesome Guns" store because the owner, Dell Shanze, turned out to be a monumental prick. Anyone familiar with the Utah market will recognize him from his wacky "Super Dell" and "Totally Awesome Computers" commercials. He got in a bunch of trouble with the law for flying his ultralight plane in restricted airspace and also for threatening people with a firearm. He claimed he felt threatened and was lawfully using his concealed carry firearm for personal protection.
The last I heard of him he tried to run against Utah Governor Jon Huntsman and made a lot of wacky comments/behaviors the hallmark of his campaign. Here's one example...

Schanze's comments target Gov. Huntsman
August 1st, 2008 @ 6:49am
By Andrew Adams
Political name-calling has reached new depths in the race for governor.
Dell Schanze called thousands of voters daily with his message that Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. is an "anti-Christ socialist." The Salt Lake Tribune reports "Super Dell" is using an auto-dial message to reach 2,500 voters a day. Schanze toned down a revised version of the ad, which no longer includes the term. But Schanze maintains that Huntsman's religious beliefs are falsely portrayed.
The message also said Huntsman is suppressing technology that allows vehicles to run on water.
Schanze told The Tribune that supporters set up the auto-dial call; he just recorded the message.
A spokeswoman for Huntsman declined to address Schanze's statement. She says the governor plans to continue to work on the important issues for the state.
Schanze is running against Huntsman in this year's election for governor. So is Democrat Bob Springmeyer. Schanze also takes a shot at him. Schanze claims Springmeyer told him in a phone call that he doesn't care about the constitution. Springmeyer says he does.
