Starting Your Own Gun Business

History has demonstrated that some of the most successful businesses start out with something you have a passion for. If your passion is firearms and you have always wanted to own your own business then owning a gun shop may be perfect for you.

If you’re thinking about starting your own firearms business, there has never been a better time to start than right now. Every day you wait you risk the chance that the gun laws will change and your dreams of owning your own business, working with something you have a passion for, will disappear forever.

A Gun Shop is a unique business that is heavily regulated by both the federal government and state and local laws.
The Gun Control Act (18 U.S.C. sec. 923(d)) empowers the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms the ability to regulate businesses engaging in firearms sales and service. This means the application, review, and the process of the issuing a federal firearms license falls under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). As always, dealing with and navigating the requirements of government paperwork can seem like an intimidating task.

What can go wrong when applying for a license? Even if you meet all the requirements, the problem when trying to navigate the proper government forms is, just one little mistake can get your application denied. If you have ever worked with government paperwork requirements you’ll understand the frustrations of following the necessary application procedure.

Here are some additional benefits of having your owning your own gun business

With today’s political climate and repeated attempts to change the guns laws I strongly recommend you take the necessary steps to start your own firearm business today.
