I am in the process of aligning my ducks for a retail gun store. As for the letter to the local police chief , am I supposed to write as to intent to open ? or as a request to open and wait for a reply ? Sorry for the dumb question but I have looked and all I can find is that you have to inform, nothing as to content of the letter.. Thank all. There is a lot of good info in this section. I have been on here for years and never even been in here. Guess I have been missing out.
