    I find it capitalized to an offensive degree.

    Call me a cynic (in all caps for obvious reasons).
    it isn't my fault the prices are so high. We have to pay higher prices from distributors or close our doors. Considering he just doubled his sales that means he should have enough revenue to keep his doors open for 2 quarters.

    I have never been in business. Seems simple enough, I stayed awake in my accounting classes. Please explain.

    I'm no expert on the economy, but I just don't think there's enough time for the market to straighten itself back out before the bans hit. Which is quite unfortunate, considering I don't own NEARLY enough guns.

    P.S.

    Nice quote

    proof that there is a difference between an accounting degree and one in business. one is about counting the other is about continuity and growth. try a paper route you'll learn all the basics there

    I had a paper route for a few years. Does this mean you won't explain? He has managed to stay in business for the last few years selling X per quarter and now he sold 2X. I was just being a cynic and understand he is stuck between a rock and hard place. I'm not saying he is a bad guy or anything.

    I'm a little grumpy, but still optimistic. Love the quote! At first glance I thought it was the other version.

    managerial ACCOUNTING has plenty to do with running a business. and financial ACCOUNTING(crunching numbers and putting them on a sheet) is important too or you wouldn't be able to objectively see how your business is doing.

    paper route, on the other hand, is about avoiding sprinklers and developing a good arm. and maybe meeting a hot mom or 2.

    if i were a gun shop that doubled my sales from last quarter, and then ran out of stuff to sell, i'd likely make my orders and then close shop for the next quarter to reduce overhead and open back up when my stuff gets in. and in the mean time i'd take up a paper route. i could go to 200 houses and hopefully meet that hot mama, or i could go to 2 dumpsters and call it a day. either way i make a quick buck :D

    you can't close a business for a while and just reopen. your customers will be shopping somewhere else. continuity and consistency are most important. when you sell retail you price based on replacement cost. or you go outa business fairly quickly. its why its better for many to keep working for others
