Default So I went and did a thing....

Well, I've always wanted to open up a gun shop and after years of being out of town oil and gas land surveying I had enough last year and took a job in Dallas. The first of the year I decided to get my FFL and sell from the house, and once I applied the wife and I found a promising spot for a gun shop out in Seven Points, Texas. The whole area is starting to explode so we made the call and bought a small place on a half acre tract. If all goes well, we'll expand in a few years. Gent's I'd like to introduce Cedar Creek Firearms, and mods if this is considered advertising, please delete it, I didn't mean any harm, just wanted to to show off the new digs.

Congrats! Don’t be surprised if I drop in someday. I fly RC in seagoville and like to get out of the city often. If my job wasn’t here, I’d be gone.

That's awesome man. I have been considering getting my ffl but just to be able to give my family and friends guns at cost. It's like I'm Johnny Appleseed but it's not completely free.

Gonna be a CZ dealer?

Thanks everybody, it is nerve racking, I’m keeping my day job. I’ve got a guy that worked at another shop running it Tuesday through Friday, I’ll come in at nights and handle it Saturday. My wife works about a quarter mile down the road so close enough to keep an eye on things.

Matt, I’m not going direct with cz there minimum is way pricey, but I will be picking up some through distributors, and selling my personal inventory of CZ. The scorpion went today, and I’ve had a few people eyeballing my green P01.

Casey that’s wild, I bought it from the guy Travis sold to, Travis introduced himself the other day. Thank you for all the advice while getting my ffl!

You should become an LMT dealer and give me the hookup on a few things I need. I believe they have no minimums.

Congrats and best of luck

Go get some bollards to stop the stolen truck ram attack that a lot the LGS's are to suffering from, make sure to anchor the safe down, and invest in a good camera system and alarm
