Opening gunshop
 
Hello all, I'm planning on opening a gunshop within the next year and I was wondering if anyone had any pointers or heads up for me, I just recently completed schooling in gunsmithing and just now wrapping my head around everything. Thanks for the input, much appreciated

Welcome aboard!

With the current panic buying, my only tip would be get you stock order in ASAP because you are going to find a lot of items are back ordered for months now.

Yeah what he ^^^^ said. Supplies are limited right now so your bread and butter to begin will be your smith work. Good luck.

Thanks guys, I've been looking at the build kits for ARs, big fan of the building process to tell ya the truth. I kno its a pain but I like the personal aspect, maybe I'm wrong in my thinking there

Then make sure you get your manufacturing 07 FFL if you're going to build ARs for resale.

I'm in the works with the FFL, working on a building first before I get the FFL so I'm not.screwed before starting

You know I need to start learning too. I'll be finished with my gunsmithing in a few weeks. My piece of advice get your LLC.

I'm getting everything I possibly can, my engraving tools are already in the mail, I'd like to get into that, have some tools but I know theres thousands more. Got all my paperwork sitting infront of me though so now its just a matter of time

Congrats I hope to do the same one day...it's my dream job. They say if you love what you do you never have to go to work.

Make sure zoning is okay that's the biggest thing that stops most people. If you have any question you can always PM me. I got my 01 in July of last year, so the process is still pretty fresh to me.
