I make good money when I have work and I benefit from getting dealer pricing from a few more distributors.
95% of what I make goes back into the shop anyway. Basically I work for free.
You're in MA right? What store?

Oh and to the OP DON'T GET A JOB AT A GUN SHOP! Not only does the pay suck but you spend your entire paycheck at the same shop that's paying you like crap

Yep again. Lol
Unless you have a much needed skill.
I know the new and up and coming firearms and I can reverse engineer any gun you put in my hands. My boss is a pro with older guns and knows the ins and outs of the business.

Yep. Ripped our sign out of the ground so we packed all the guns in the vault and called it a day.

No we haven't. Probably not ma compliant. 90% of what is ma compliant is on backorder. It's a nightmare right now. We were lucky to get a few shields in.
