Jimmy Davis was sentenced to two years and six months in federal prison without parole. The 57-year-old owned the now-defunct Eclipse Gentlemanâ??s Club.
He pleaded guilty on July 24, 2012, to being a felon in possession of firearms. Davis had felony convictions for trafficking in methamphetamine and selling marijuana.
Federal agents searched Davisâ??s residence and neighboring business on Aug. 19, 2010, after receiving a report that Davis was in possession of firearms. A gun safe in the basement contained 30 shotguns, rifles and handguns.
While executing the search warrant, agents also found numerous rounds of ammunition and a Springfield Armory 9 mm semi-automatic pistol in a case on top of the gun safe. Fire shotgun shells were found in an upstairs bedroom.
According to his plea agreement, Davis purchased 12 firearms-specific hunting permits between 2006 and 2009.
