WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas couple admits they violated federal firearm regulations while selling weapons out of a combined beauty shop and gun store.

U.S. prosecutors announced Thursday that 51-year-old Jeffrey Eberhart and his wife, 42-year-old Tracey Eberhart, of Augusta pleaded guilty to federal firearms violations.

They operated Tracey's Dream Weavers Salon and Sporting Good, which they advertised as ``Where Beauty and Bullets Collide.''

Jeffrey Eberhart admitted he bought and sold hundreds of firearms at the store and at gun shows although he didn't have a federal firearms license because he was a convicted felon.

Tracey Eberhart was a licensed federal firearms dealer but admitted she didn't keep records or make required federal reports on at least 33 firearms transactions.

They will be sentenced April 15.
