October Opening - FINAL ANSWER.
« on: September 08, 2019, 09:08:28 AM »
Okay guys.

A few updates. Some good, some bad.

We're looking at end of September/October 1st opening. I've had a potential setback in Southbury that you may hear about in the upcoming weeks. I'm choosing to wait and see what goes down before I hit the "oh shit" button. It's for this reason we have a BACKUP and we're still looking at Late September/Oct 1.

I accepted a contract with an entity that requires certain security precautions. I'm doing my best to accommodate them.

For gunsmithing or armoring - We require that civilians schedule an appointment. [

All firearms must be concealed in some sort of packaging when coming to our location. There will always be a law enforcement presence here. Please use common sense, respect and be smart about coming to "our house".

We're not doing transfers. There's a great shop right down the hill in Southbury.

I'm focusing on distribution. If you want something I manufacture, you must go through a dealer. Still figuring out a few logistics, but we're getting there.

That's about it.

I'll be making contact with a few other dealers over the next few weeks and working out a product list with models and more information on what products we're offering.

Thanks everyone.

As this is a public forum and there are always shills present, that's as far as I'm going.

Took 3 hours on the phone to get them to drop the permit/id bullshit.

Civilians need to call and schedule an appointment - Please do not just show up.

Amending the other posts.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

It has been, but it'll be worth it.

I'm sending a list of product to dealers shortly, figuring out MAP and all that fun stuff - Stay tuned folks.

Okay.

My Southbury location has now been approved.

We had an appeal filed against us. We were able to prove that we had bent over backwards to accommodate everyone involved. The board ruled in our favor, overwhelmingly.

Once Oxford gets approved, we'll get the ball rolling.

October 14th is the big day.

Civilians that need gunsmithing must call ahead and get approved. Everything else is done by email.

Easy.
