Why the Firearms Business?

I do it for the FUN of it

When Shannon, our Office Manager returned from her deployment by the National Guard, in response to the Wuhan Chinese virus, I asked her to give me a place on the website in which I could share some of my thoughts and knowledge. I have really missed her during her deployment, but that is another issue I may sound off on later.

And so this is my first post.

We as a company attended the final machine-gun shoot at Knob Creek Range in West Point Kentucky, and were sitting around the table having dinner the night before the show. One of our guests asked me a question, that I was certain I knew the answer to, but it totally caught me off guard and I stammered through my response.

The question was simple: Why? Why do you do what you do?

I mean after all,  I retired over 8 years ago at age 55.  Personally, I am financially sound. I literally lose money every year with the firearms business, so why bother with it at all?

As I mentioned, when I was asked that question at Knob Creek it took me by surprise and I really did not know how to respond at the time. I have always known the answer, and yet I was not able to explain it properly. The truth is that the answer is as simple as the question was.

Why?….I do it for the FUN of it.
