Carl Joos had an accident and has a serious head injury. When he was in hospital just after he was unresponsive. Apparently a relative was going to try to run it, but that blew up when a divorce ensued. My guess is that it is effectively gone at this point.

That's a shame. A great place to do business with. Nice people.

Thanks for the info.

Wow, so sorry to hear about this. He was a great guy and had more gun knowledge than anyone in the business. I remember when his son was born at Camp Perry and they, of course, named him Perry.

Is Champion Shooter Supply Still in Business? Champs11

This was the sign that greeted me the last time I visited Champion Shooters Supply a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately, they do not respond to phone calls, e-mails, or faxes.  Website is no longer.  For he first time in decades, they did not attend Camp Perry.  It is my understanding that Carl and Sandy Jooss turned the business over to their son-in-law several years ago; and that tenure did not go well.  Sad, they had been around for over 45+years.

The American Smallbore Shooting Association (ASSA) has a good, short bio of the company circa 2018:

"Champion Shooters Supply, LLC. is a family business founded by Carl and Sandra Jooss in 1972. For over 45 years, they have been a source of a wide variety of competitive shooting equipment, ammunition, accessories and clothing for rifle and pistol competitors from beginner level to national champions. They also own the line of Freeland shooting products since 1991
The Champion Shooters Supply, LLC. main retail location is located in Utica, OH and an additional location is in the process of being added at The Cardinal Center in Marengo, OH. At either location, shooters, coaches and parents can rest assured that they will receive excellent service by fellow competitors with decades of experience from the selection of rifles and accessories to ensuring the proper fit of a new shooting jacket.
In addition to their Utica and Marengo locations, Champion Shooters Supply, LLC. has been a fixture on Camp Perry’s Commercial Row for over 45 years.
Carl and Sandra have since retired from running the day to day operations with Todd Wielinski now fully engaged in leading the family business."

You must have bought it from Champion's Choice NOT Champion Shooters Supply.

shame to hear, 

great folks to deal with, 

years ago, I was at Perry with a friend,  
he needed a new shooting jacket,  and the owner's wife (I think that is who it was)  fitted him right up on the spot,

I remember when his son was born at Perry.  A ammo box came down the line in smallbore and by noon he was a NRA Life Member.  Son's name is Perry.
