Default Gun Shop in the Basement.

Alright I got my display cases in for the shop downstairs and got it together. Now I need some slat walls and some filler but just wanted to see if any of ya'll had some recommendations.

You're gonna think I'm crazy, but turn the guns sideways. I find them easier to view that way and to get a better concept of how they should feel in my hands.

I just see one problem. Where's the 1911?

It looks pretty good. Have you already gotten some rifle racks set up?

I sold it I have to get another one and I'm working on building one of those turn table rifle racks. I actually sold 3 1911's last month. As soon as I was getting them they were walking out the door.

Its a good start! Ask your customers their input. Dont promise to make the changes they recommend, but if you do, they will deffenetly feel even more connected to the buisness when they see it. The more opinions the better!

Good luck guy!

Thanks. I'm working on the entry way now, probably going to put up a wall to separate the shop from the basement living room.
