Congrats and good luck, we're looking forward to seeing an inventory printed out. Will you be able to ship across the line?

Please keep this thread store related and leave the politics out of it.

 

 

Didn't mean to open a "can of worms".

Good for you!

Opening any business today is a challenge, I can only guess what "they" put you thru. :thumbs:

I"m the one who touched on politics. I only meant to warn that it can be risky. Be conservative with your fianances. Don't invest more than your inventory is worth. Be very careful of the scams that are everywhere. I sincerely wish you good luck but I am an engineer officer to the bone. I instinctively look ahead to what problems may develope. I try to warn people about risks that I see. Good Luck, Rick

You didn't open a can of worms. But if it goes political, I'm sure Cat will whip out his can of kick a$$. That man hates politics. : )

Critter, are you renting or leasing an existing building? Tent behind the Gas 'N' Go? Garage at your place? Brand new pole shed with a second level?  :D Scale house at the old gravel pit?  Details, man! We want details! I gotta plan next year's spring break trip.

Congratulations on the new venture. For about 7 yrs 2 days a week I was the smiling face behind the sporting goods counter at a Walmart. i really enjoyed hooking people up with the firearm that suited their needs and wants.
The biggest headache and imperative is keeping meticulous paperwork.

Meeting with the ATF man Thursday morning as a "formality" as he calls it. Already faxed the information and his report/recommendation is already going through. Should have FFL by April 10. Then the gun hunt begins.

Something has to work in my favor. The "C" store in front of my garage was sold so I'm losing my auto shop. Been there 10 years. I'm getting tired of life slapping me in the face/ I'm getting too old for this crap.

All the shops I have talked to lately tell me that the ammo shortage is due to 'hoarding'. They get a shipment in and it's gone by noon.

Hey, you got ammo, i gotta plow lets trade. :D

 

A guy I know from my town just opened up a shop near jacksonville. Rumor has it he cant keep the shelves stocked from all the people buying up everything he has. I hope you have the same problem.

 

Best of luck to you.
