The man speaketh the truth. In my area LGS are barely getting by. The only 2 that I know of are making their money off accessories. One long time gun shop went out of business because the owner didn’t have the foresight to invest any money in stock and just waited for his distributors to send him guns. The most successful, opened during the gun grab craze spent most of their time hunting down rifles, pistols and ammo, and now operate a thriving business ( it helps that the listen to the needs of their customer base. Cranky old shop owners take note). There is yet another one that just recently got their FFL but can’t find any Stock. They have some tactical gear but not a whole lot. They are also marketed to the LEO crowd. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but your cutting out a large percentage of your customer base. I prefer to spend my money where the product is. I try to buy something there at least 2-3 times a month whether it’s 12.00 or a 120.00. So get out there and support you LGS. Spend your money on the local economy. Your gun guy will thank you for it.

It would help if the gun store that is in your video did not treat people like crap and its not everyone just the big un happy miserable shop manager.
