It was a good show, which was surprising since we just barely had one like six weeks ago. We went 5 months without one, then two back to back, but considering how many guns we sold, I wouldn’t mind having one of these every month.
Our simulator was a big draw. People love to play on the simulator. Usually we’re running basic games and things of that nature, but the actual training sims are the ones that draw people in. (though I’m still waiting for one of the customers on the other side of the tent to drop the gun they’re looking at, when the person fighting bad guys on the simulator starts screaming, DROP THE GUN! DROP THE GUN!) After the show, we moved the simulator downstairs in our shop, so that it will have more visibility to the public. So if you come by now, it will be a lot easier for us to demonstrate it to you.
We sold most of our copies of Mitch Vilos’ latest edition of Utah Gun Laws. We still have a few left, and we’ll be getting more before Mitch’s free symposium at our shop on the 16th.
On the funny side of things, I’ve just got to point a few things out for gun store shoppers. If I’ve got a new gun marked at $925, and you offer me $700, don’t be offended when I don’t sell it to you. Seriously, I don’t know how much margin you think we have in these things, but it ain’t that much. And yes, I know your cousin saw one on the internet, once, three years ago, for $700… You should have bought that one.
Massive thanks to all of the Minions for all of their hard work. You guys rock.
