New FFL Dealer
 
I need some help from the pros here. I recently received my FFL for WV...Great! The problem now is distributors. I am working from my garage and would like to transition into a full time shop in a separate building in time. I am having problems, because they (distributors) want the store front picture, inventory, yellow page ad,...etc. Things I do not have at this time. I would like any help on finding distributors that are willing to help a new dealer get started and work with me.... Thanks

RSR Group, Zanders, Davidsons, MGE, and there are others that do not care about you being home based. The first three there are my go to's for most of what I do. RSR and Zanders are pretty much always going to be cheaper than Davidsons. Shipping is good with Zanders if you order more than 750. RSR has a shipping srop off too but I dont remember what the point is. Good luck with your new business!

Moved your thread over to the FFL section- you were in "suggestions for the website".

Good luck with your business. Be sure to drop by the introduction thread and tell us a bit about yourself.

In the Clinton era, you could not get an FFL without a storefront. No home FFLs. When did they relax that?

Distributors like Southern Ohio Gun (SOG ) will find you in no time. Your mailbox will be stuffed in about three months.
