I run a sporting goods store, right now i don't have any firm info on when any guns can be replenished other than 7 guns that should arrive monday.
Currently I have over 1200 guns on order just for stock purposes and special customer orders sitting at about 500.
Ammo is a joke, no firm commitment from any company about shipping. This is far worse than Obama days.
Upset customers wanting to wheel and deal or get a price break because they are buying 4 boxes of 9mm that the guy behind them will pay full price for. Then they get all hurt because you don't appreciate them enough to give them a break.
Upset because, no offense intended for OP, they want to trade a beat up marlin 60 towards an AR and want the price of the marlin to magically drop the AR by 250 dollars. Logistically that does not work.
If I have nothing to sell how do I pay my 15 employees and myself. I cant loose a dollar on a deal right now.
Once you pass a certain level of sales a day, credit card fees dont matter.
Unlike a gun show, cash doesnt help my bottom line, its like stopping to pick up a penny instead of going to work to make 20 bucks an hour.
Again this isn't meant to be offensive, panic buying doesn't make a gun stores business better,in the long run it just hurts us and the customer
