    Hey guys, some friends of mine have opened a new business selling weapons and gear online. They deal in Magpul, EOTech, Trijicon, Yankee Hill and others. They will have their FFL soon and will soon be selling firearms. Check them out at http://www.fosuperstore.com/. They are also doing a raffle to give away some gear if you become a fan on Facebook. Check them out http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/...22732817744182

    Note - I am not working for them or associated with this business in any way. Just trying to help some friends get the word out and let the greater gun community know about another place to shop.

    You might want to have them spell "Veteran" properly on their home page. It isn't spelled "Vetren", even if they pronounce it that way................ ;)

    I wish them success!

    These types of website retailers are popping up faster than I can count them. I don't know if your friends are doing a large amount of drop-ship/manufacturer-direct sales, but I'm only guessing that many of the new sites these days are doing this. Most of them must be run out of residential or non-public space because they have limited to nonexistent contact information. I'm not trying to put down your friends' business, just noticing a trend I see. I don't know how much a website like that costs or how you get started in this type of thing, but it makes me very curious. I'd much rather have a website make my living while I'm at the trap field during the day.

    ide suggest they put a physical address on their 'Contact us' section........

    even if they dont have a store front, put the "ship from" address.

    i always feel more comfortable buying from a company( especially a new company) if they have a physical address, in the event they fail to respond to phone in email, i know where to reach them.

    I fully understand your concerns. If they are running this from their home / property, they likely don't want to make that information available.

    I wish them the best!

    They can always get a PO box at a mailbox place with a physical address, they don't have to put the box number, it's usually listed as a suite number. The mailbox place can sign for packages and it makes them seem more professional anyway.

    Just spoke to my friends and they are worried about posting their address as they don't have a storefront. I'll pass on the suggestion of a PO Box. I know a man's word is meaning less and less these days, but they are good trustworthy folks.

    I have no issues with a business ran out of the home. I run one myself that way and I don't want people knowing.

    There are a ton of internet businesses like this and more and more everyday. What I think is happening a lot is, a guy has an advanced website and stocks nothing. He's got agreements with dozens of manufacturers for drop-ship orders. He sits back and let the website make money. Sure, he only makes pocket change on each order, but eventually it will add up to a living, especially if he can get his site's name out there. I don't know if this is the case with your friends, but I wish I knew a little more on how to get something like this going and I'd do it myself.

    I wish him luck!
