Agreed. I'm still working on convincing the owner that most of the income will come from what we offer besides guns. I can totally understand how he feels though, he already has more money then I've ever seen sunk into the place. We will get there.

You said you were in mass right? Whereabouts?

Old mill gun shop. Were open 12-6.
But we're usually around at about 10-7.

It'd be cool to see you. I appreciate the support. Were probably about 30-40 minutes away from four seasons.

Good luck, I'm still trying to convince the owner of the shop I am at that the big ticket items are not the big money makers....and I've been at it for 12 years. I used a gun shop as an example with him one time. I told him ''I go to a gun shop once a week on average, do you think I buy a new gun every week?" He is finally starting to come around. I honestly can't believe this guy has been in business for 36 years.
