I'm planning ahead to open a gun store when I retire, and this is a good place for suggestions. Besides strippers, beer in the water fountain, and free guns, what kind of stuff would my store need so people will call the place home? I already plan to have some furniture and a coffee pot and a couple vending machines so people can lounge and BS with each other. One thing I used to hate as a kid just starting to learn about guns is when the guys behind the counter would blow me off even when there were no other customers. Kids grow up and come back to buy guns. or they don't come back if you are a fuckhead to them. So, a small area so people can come in, relax, and talk about whatever (A live version of this site I guess), a mandate to any employees that everyone will be treated like our number one customer, a written, oral, and hands-on test involving firearms sold there for all employees to ensure they know what they're talking about, what else? I'd like a range out back with gun rentals, but that'll only happen after the store's been up and running for a bit. My plan as far as prices go is to price them just high enough to keep the store running with a little extra to put into expansion and savings. My primary goal is to put as many guns into the hands of American citizens as possible. Any thoughts?
