The conversation with Paul Helinski, founder of GunsAmerica, at the Blogger Bash got me thinking of what I could do to support the FFL's local to me besides just buying supplies or the occasional firearm. So here's what I'm going to do:
I'm adding a new feature to Days of Our Trailers. Starting June 5th, 2008, I'm going to be advertising firearms available through my local firearm dealerships. Some will be added each day for the next week or so and will be attached to a new sidebar list available on the site. After that, as they are sold, new firearms will be added to keep the list as current as possible.
Except for some store credit for sales made through referrals, I am not being paid for this. I am doing this to not only help out a friend (I bought my first gun through Arcola Guns and about half my others) but to help support the local firearm industry and economy.
Note that I am not selling these firearms. I do not own or have in my possession any of the ones that are being listed.* All sales go through the advertised FFL at his shop or transferred to one local to the buyer. Federal, state, and local laws apply.
If any other Central IL FFL's are interested in this, feel free to contact me.
*If I sell any of my personal collection, it will be noted and same conditions apply.
