When I sold firearms, my mom would tell people that her son is an arms dealer to mess with them lol

Same, then they realize you spend more time with a pen and paper than you do guns lol

I told people I was an international arms dealer because I’ve sold multiple firearms to people with green cards

Being a legal firearms dealer; we appreciate y'all that endure the nonsense in lieu of having a fun-filled short-lived career on the socials.

Shit's gonna hit the fan when the ATF criminalizes red Swingline staplers.

If you do it the way the founding fathers intended you'd be a felon

You mean; 'How it SHOULD be VS How the government makes it?'

Sadly you aren’t wrong. Goddamn having a business in this country is a pain in the ass.

Shot show was fun though.

Never been, how do we get there?!


u/flyman95 Mar 24 '23

A valid FFL and a business card got me in. Sign up for NSSF and the event price is really reasonable.

Went first time this year. Honestly, kinda overwhelming. Pictures don’t do justice to just how big the event space is. I considered it a fact finding mission. Really helped me learn about things in the industry. Make some contacts. Familiarize myself with brands I’d not had much experience with. Next year I need to go with a set budget and ready to make some deals.

So you have to have an FFL to get in?


u/flyman95 Mar 24 '23

Yes. It is a trade show. Not a “gun show”. All weapons have firing pins removed. You can’t buy any weapons there directly. You can make purchase orders for a number of guns. But nothing you are walking out of there with. For example HK had a thing of buy so many guns get one free. It was actually a pretty good deal.

u/diklevelkid Mar 23 '23
