Carrying over from the other thread, help me pick a location. I want this to be 'your' gun store!

+1 on that! But, good luck getting a business license anywhere in Marin for a new gun store. The last guys - a sporting goods store from Santa Cruz - tried for almost 2 years before bailing out and closing an otherwise great store - would of been outstanding with an FFL. A few years ago the Big 5 got flooded in Corte Madera, some looters broke in and took a bunch of guns, and they have never sold guns in that store again!

Where ever you end up, I will definitely come check it out.

I voted for Marin but Fairfield/Cordelia would be even better for those of us that commute that way, lots of money passing through.

I'd like you to locate the store in the Dublin/San Ramon/Danville area, but I don't buy enough guns often enough to make it worth your while.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

I'd have to vote the Palo Alto, Menlo Park area because the is nothing around here. Use to have two gun stores in Mt. View but they are long gone. I do Irvington Arms in the East bay for most of my stuff. There is the San Carlos place and a few in the far south bay but in this area nothing. Where ever you go it will help some people out.

Uh, I am thinking Redding would be better for me. You bay area people have plenty of gun shops:innocent:. We need someone up here that actually understands California gun laws. I had to drive to taft to get my OLL and would like to get a couple Saiga Rifles but nobody up here will sell them.

My vote is for vallejo, benicia, fairfield area. You would have too much competition in the martinez, concord, pleasant hill neck of the woods. It would be nice to have something between me and "Gun's, Fishing and Other Stuff"

Cotati. Since North Bay Firearms, formerly Montana Hawk, got run into the ground and closed, there is nothing up this way. There is an empty store & range waiting. Only drawback I hear is the city of Cotati might be unwilling to issue a business license for another range.

Being a resident of Hayward, I'd like to see a nice East Bay one around Pleasanton. Nicer area, you'd probably find a decent amount of business too.

Fremont is a pain to drive to because 880 sucks and Pacifica is also a pain to get to.

Anything closer tends to be fairly high priced.

Go go East Bay!

Farther North ;). Wine Country would be great, but Marin would probably be better for business as far as being close to the population center. Even with fewer people though you'd probably get more customers in Napa.

I voted north because I need another transfer dealer up there. Plus you're further away from me. :p

I would like East Bay too. But Alameda County is pretty Ant Gun. Many of these City Councils have taxed FFLs so they cant make a profit. They seem to blame gun dealers for gun crimes:rolleyes:

I can't vote in the poll. :(
None of the choices are anywhere close to Culver City.

It would be nice to see another quality store in the East Bay as well, but I can't imagine any of the local governments being ffl friendly. I do feel there may be a sales vacuum from "The Traders" ffl revocation, but that is only a hunch not backed up with statistics. I thought I remember you proposing a cigar shop as well so I hope you decide on a location that has a customer base for both businesses.

Peninsula.

Yes, there are a few shops here already, but it would be nice to have a good one ;)

You'll have the easiest permit and business license experience in South San Francisco.

I vote for the peninsula - We're down to a single gun shop in SF and it's otherwise pretty bleak on the rest of the peninsula. Obviously that's where I live so I'm a bit biased but I would love to have a good gun shop near me (I hate driving down to the South Bay to do xfers and other business).
