    Help me with a name.

    Hey guys, I am opening a business here shortly. A FFL is in the future but not at the moment, I am still active duty witch sucks up most of my time up. I do the following:
    Firearm restorations, Wood, metal ect. Duracoat mostly.
    Build AR-15s customer pays for parts and picks up lowers from FFLs
    Build Distance rifles
    Build HK type guns. MP5s/ UMPand G36 conversions, ect
    When I say Build I mean put together parts, not manufacture.
    Any custom refinishing. Example: Wifes pink Walther .22 ect.
    Supply ammo and gun parts.
    Supply optics.
    Supply gun accesories.

    Ill be running this out of my house and at gun shows. I have a guy that is setting up my Business, tax Id, ect.
    What do I call it??? I will not sell guns till I get out of the military.

    I appreciate it in advance. I need Ideas for these types of firearms services. A name?

    Anything you plan on specializing in? And what kind of distance rifles would you build?

    Get your real name in the dba.

    I don't say I am going to Hunkydory Tackytickle Zombieslayers, Inc.; I say I am going down to Joe's place.

    How about Joe's Legos. With a gun in the logo, of course.

    01colt,

    What kind of guns are you going to sell?

    'Tactical'? Hunting? Match shooting? Cowboy style guns? All of them?

    Are they all by order or will you have a stock for selling?

    You might call your company:

    "Universal Guns'.

    Inhouse Guns (out of your house.)

    'Corsair Guns'

    'Timeless Guns' (for collectors)

    'The Jolly Roger Shooting Irons'

    'Doc Colt' if just Colts..

    Or others like that.

    And if you run a beer store next by you could call it "Bud and Wesson".

    Deaf

    Lol, good stuff, but Im not going to fully be able to commit (FFL) till I get out of the military, deployments, long hours ect. FFL is in the future though. I hit 20 in Sept. With this economy Im not ready to give up the regular pay check quite yet, even with skinnys trying to kill me every year.

    Knowledge and experience through personal use or formal training?

    I personally would pick a specialty and then go from there. That way your known for something and then you can build off of that.

    The gun stores around here are named after the people.

    Whittaker guns
    Frank miller and son

    There's a guy here that has whatever license it takes to register an sbr and it's called "acme guns.". The guy said he chose acme because it'll be first in the phone book. I can't think of anything off the top of my head? I just thought I'd share.

    Yeah it sounds like you already have a diverse service and supply offering with plans to expand - you need something that fits you now but does not become defunct as you grow
    Avoid the cheesy like "Stocks-N-Things".

    Firearms Specialties and Supplies
    American Weapons Systems
    Mid-America Firearms and services (or wherever you are located)
    San Diego Arms (again location)
    Sporting Arms and Accessories

    Off the top of my head.

    You like - discount me a Glock when you get there. I can help with graphics and branding plans - seriously!
