    Hello to anyone out there who will take a minute to read this. I've been working on getting a store front open for 18 months, a lot of work, FFL, massachusetts dealers license, store front, etc. I'm about to run out of money and I'm about a week and a half from opening. How can I raise some capital soon? Any ideas?

    Sell off some of your extra toys. (ATV, boats, extra cars, etc.)
    I wouldn't be selling any guns unless your ffl licence is in force.(even personal guns)
    A local ffl in my area is selling online & gun shows until he can get his shop built.
    I don't know what your local laws are but it is an idea.

    Thanks, but banks won't touch a firearms business

    If you are not on there, enroll at Gunbroker. Get some guns on auction there- and enroll in their "Find a FFL" program- people looking for a dealer to receive firearms they bought on line.
