    Guy up here had his FFL yanked. Think he ended up selling the shop turn-key for like $500k. He had about $2mil in stock.

    We have the same thing going on out here in Pittsburgh, Pa the one shop owner is having some issues as he shot some guy in the face who was in his car... they're not exactly calling it justified so he's trying to sell his shop for $500,000. :eek3:

    Wow,.. looks good. But, I wonder how the traffic is. If you took out a 30 year business loan it would be about ~$1,400 a month+ utiliites + insurance. This is, of course, if you plan on being the only employee.

    Nice! I don't see traffic being a problem in relatively pro-gun Arkansas.

    Personally Id never start up a gunshop especially with the internet available. Too many people are online and see much better prices than a shop can offer. Internet shops dont have to pay to have a building, etc.

    I would start it with the concentration of effort being internet sales.. foot traffic isn't going to garner enough revenue in BFE, AR. Point being, if one of us buys it, there would be a guaranteed market, albeit limited, and a solid internet presence here in WMD. I have yet to see a shop with an internet presence like most of us would have. The closest I've seen would be Knoxx. Their VP is pretty active on Shotgunworld. With the knowledge thats floating around here, and this many people scouring the net for deals, I think if someone from OT were to buy it, they could do pretty damn well for themselves.

    If I had a good $50k or so sitting around I'd do it. There would go my house plans I'd be living in the backroom :o Internet sales would be the way to go get a banner up on arfcom, throw up some auctions on Gunbroker.

    I think OT would have the advantage, if we could cooperate enough. Dealer pricing + shipping for OT WMD, in exchange for links, good deals, trades, and word of mouth publicity, and considering that all of us are on different boards, the word would be spread pretty fucking wide.

    Yeah I agree, looked like they had alot of AR stuff though I'd try to throw some deals up over there too to get things going. Would have to get Fazle to put up a banner here :o

    I think ideally, two people splitting the difference for startup costs would be the best way, then work on generating local sales while starting up a killer web setup to generate the lion's share of revenue.

    well, if you want another basically garunteed market, consider advertising on calguns.net

    As long as you are willing to understand what CA laws allow you to do, you can make ALOT of money.

    I could see that as a potential market, as well as providing a spent shell casing for those poor bastards in MD, who's elected officials have pulled off the most unlikely: almost choking off the incoming supply of pistols completely by requiring there be a fired casing shipped with the pistol for their pointless ballistic printing.

    .

    If I could front the kind of money for that, I would have no problem with moving there and helping run that place. Looks like a good solid investment. Lots of money to gain just from the resale of the guns in stock alone.
