For a while now I have been contemplating what to do with myself once my tenure in the military ends. I joined mostly due to financial difficulties, and I now feel more prepared to make my way in other, better paying careers and I feel like I know what I want to pursue. I would like to start my own gunshop, complete with most, if not all, services you would expect from your LGS. Only problem is, I don't really know anything about running a gun shop. I'm sure the general business running items I can learn from Google, or from a business degree using my GI bill, but the Firearms specific information and nuances of the trade are hard to come by. If any of you own a shop, work in one, or have any expirience with managing one in the past, I would like to pick your brain on the subject. Some things I would want in my store: Guns Gun accessories Shooting gear Ammo Reloading supplies Safes Shooting clothes Holsters Indoor Range Outdoor Range (would be nice, but not counting on getting the space right away) If you want, you can send me a PM and we can establish email contact, or you can brain dump into this thread. I appreciate your expertise.
