Actually, this all came up as a daydream at work yesterday when I should have been getting an arrest warrant...
I'm still researching options between distributors, licensing, if the yuppy neighborhood has zoning laws against firearm dealers etc. It will be a while before I even make a decision as to whether or not I do it.
But think about it! How do you feel when you go to a small gun store that is also a pawn shop on the side, where the carpet has mildew and you have to ring a doorbell to get in? I hate it!
I think many business that begin as a protest to the mainstream (insert business type here) often do better because they know what to improve on.
