    I'm looking at opening a gun shop and have a few (ok, a lot) of questions for someone that has been in the business. Any around here, or someon that can point me in the right direction.

    The question I always ask is it worth IT NO, I final gave mine up last Jan. after having it for over 20 years. unless you are going to have a store front and sell to the public at least 5 days aweek and sell over 50 guns per month its not worth the bull factor IMHO

    Plus you have to deal with the BATF&E when they want to come and visit ,I had them show up twice in 3 years and before that I had never seen them in 17 years of Business. SO if you think its worth it then I say go for it .
