I have had folks transfer in firearms the are being sold retail for as much as $50 BELOW my wholesale price. Availability of firearms through distributors for the most part is what is left over after the big guys ravish the available supply at their reduced costs. I understand that the distributors want to move as much merchandise as they can and the big boys have big dollars. Why look at the guy who wants to spend a thousand or two when someone else is knocking on the door with 50, 100, or more thousand to spend, many times buying out the hot new items that are reserved for them. It is not a level playing field and I am getting tired of it.
Starting tomorrow, 20 Dec 22 until the end of the year, all items in stock will be sold at 5% over cost. This is an in store, cash only sale, no cards will be accepted because the high fees they charge firearms dealers will turn a small margin into a loss. If someone is looking from out of town, we may be able to do some sort of discount, but it will not be at the 5% margin of the sale. My goal is to sell EVERYTHING I have, firearms, magazines, ammunition, and accessories.
I will be maintaining my Federal Firearms License until it expires in late 2024. During this time I will sill do transfers, both in and out, and filling special orders as we can. Come October of 2024, my license will expire and all records will be processed in accordance with federal law.
As much as I have loved doing this and it fulfilled a dream of mine, it is time to end this chapter and move on to other things as well as return to things from the past.
