If you are selling online be prepared to have it stocked or shipped to you and then shipped to your customer's FFL.
Listen closely to this advice. When I had my FFL, wholesalers would encourage you to advertise guns you didn't have in stock because "they always have them in.". However, the instant you order one to fill an order, they are out or on backorder. It also makes you look foolish when someone calls with a question and you don't have the firearm to examine.
If you need inventory, talk to gun stores, people at ranges and others to see if you can sell on consignment for them. Not much profit, but it is free inventory and draws customers in!
