You have 6 pages of people responding with the cost being too high.
If you have such a high regulatory cost at each step, One thing the industry can't have and expect to expand their market is the distributor level.
Personally, I disagree with you about the admin costs. And many that have responded do also. This is not mystery paperwork that requires a lawyer to do. There is a time delay that affects stocking. But around here when you buy a suppressor you pay for it at the time of purchase, not time of delivery.
I think I read where in this thread you charge $150-$200 for a sparrow? They are $500 here, I can't find a discount. The market here must support $500 cans being sold at sufficient volume to support them being worthwhile for dealers to carry.
If suppressors were $350 all in I would have a trust and several already. And i am nowhere near alone. But here, one, with just fingerprints and sign-off is going to push $850-$900 and take a just about a year between CLEO and atf. That requires dedication. Selling something most consider over-priced for what it is does not instill dedication. And I'm not talking about the atf fee, most of us feel like the fee is nothing anyone has any chance to change at this time. It's fixed and a bitter pill. It's the cost of the product it's self that is not instilling the desire to make the commitment to the process.
You have 6 pages of people telling you why, and you trying to convince. Maybe consider a little believing us mixed in with the convincing. They are over-priced, and we aren't buying.
