I think that you should make a store where you can actually buy stuff (with real money not spudbux)... stuff like tasers, pvc pipe in general, valves, compressors, fittings, rifled pvc pipe, chronographs, et cetera

i like that idea also, but from business stand point, it would be tough to keep priceing low enough to be practiable, the overhead would be-shipping materials, place to do it, transportation + assocated fees, office supplies, and all the time it takes to set it all up and do it, its a bigger under takeing then you probly relized, before i forget theres all the taxes and permits, shoping cart feature on web site, did i mention the time it takes


ive been in business for myself 10 years now, it gets tough some times

i agree with you that you probably wouldn't make a huge profit but i expect that you could make a small p[rofit off of it... and there is really no competition... its much better than having to go to twenty different websites to get all ur parts...

if your in the usa, you need a sales and use tax permit to collect sales taxes from customers in your state, as for licenses, internet based businesses arent mandated yet,(far as i know), you need to check with your countys circet court clerk, thats were i get my licenses, cost me about 25 a year for what i do

TECH TIP----ALL WAYS CHECK WITH COURT CLERK 1st TO KEEP OUT OF TROUBLE---IN CASE OF USA SALES ACROSS STATE LINES TURNS IT INTO A FEDRAL THING,(BIG FINES, NO BREAKS)

Selling anything on here woulden't turn enough profit to even care about. The only way I would sell something is if I was able to make it all myself for a low price and resell it here for a large profit (that's how all businesses work :lol: ).

Since I don't plan on custom building anything here soon, you shoudlen't expect a *real* store. However if anyone is so inclinded to start providing custom pieces that are needed (like a store, not something you'd post in Classifieds), they are welcome to contact me about it and maybe we can work something out.
