The new digital currency, Bitcoin, gains another foothold in the real world.

Central Texas Gunworks now allows its customers to use the digital currency for all in store transactions, including the sale of firearms and ammunition.  Owner Michael Cargill says he hopes to attract new tech-savvy customers.

"I'm trying to reach out the younger generation.  They're up with technology and I want to move and grow with technology.  I want to be the gun store that moves forward," said Cargill.

Online transactions are limited to concealed handgun courses and private security classes.  Cargill says Bitcoins are more cost effective and safer than credit cards.
