Re: BATF Harrassment of Local Gun Dealers.
Depending on the situation, I could see why a gun shop would shut down. In order for them to stay competitive, they arent allowed to make any money. I know that sounds crazy but I know first hand. Unless you have alot of money before hand, dont start a gun shop. I have NEVER made more than 25.00 on a gun since I have been in business. Most of the time its 15.00. So unless you are selling volumes or have the money to branch out into accessories like optics, archery and other things, you cant make a living. I dont know what your local shops problem was but I can tell you if you have any overhead, you are going to struggle. Now that the economy is what it is, alot of people cant hang in there. I wanted to give you an example. I have a sig sauer 220 equinox that I posted in the buy sell forum. I have it listed on an auction site right now. That gun cost me 853.00 plus shipping which is another 30.00. I tried to sell it for dealer cost and it didnt sell. I have it priced at 799.00 to sell it. No takers. Thats just one example.
I own a bunch of scary guns. You want em? Come and take em.....
