Business Overview

In spite of the fact that gun ownership isbecoming increasingly restrictive due to government legislation in boththe United States and Canada, opening and operating a retail businessthat buys, sells, and trades guns still has the potential to beprofitable.

In addition to gun sales you can also sell ammunition andhunting-related products as well as offer a gun repair service. Promotethe business by establishing alliances with gun clubs and shootingranges as well as with firearm instructors, as these clubs andindividuals can refer your business to others.

Starting this type ofretail business will require a substantial investment and you will alsohave to clear a few legal hurdles before you can open. A well-promotedand operated gun shop could return the owner a six-figure yearly income.
