I'm a gun store clerk now, and I do ok. The only problem is-my boss gives HUGE employee discounts. And he has really nice guns. And I get paid weekly. Sob. What's a fella to do? Next up-a CZ 75 Shadow.
You should have relocated to the next town over, that way the GS wouldn't have been LOP,My sympathies !15 years ago I would patronize all the LGSs I could find,spent $$$ and finally one day a LGS offered me 1/2 interest in the shop ! I jumped at it as he needed $ 20,000 for more inventory ! Just about every buck I made went to reinvestments into my collection ! If it was not for having been in an armed robbery 11 years ago and partner beaten to an inch of his life I would still be partnerd with him.I was not at shop when this occurred but arrived 10 minutes later to the scene.My wife insisted that was the end of owning a LGS !
