Do any of you guys have a fairly good relationship with any of our local gun shop owners or managers?

I ask because I believe we should embark upon a campaign of supplying local gun stores with our tri-fold brouchures.

Imo we should ask them to keep a stack of Deloc brochures on their counter near the register. Maybe even include them with firearm purchases.

I don't really know any of them, so I started wondering if any of you did. About the only person I'm sure who does is Rob, (VwPilot), since he worked at Patriot.

I don't mind approaching some of these people with the request. But, I think we'd have the most luck if the subject was brought up by someone they know fairly well.

Imo these shops would be doing a community service to their customers, maybe even making them safer gun owners. And besides, knowing their self defense rights could save a life someday.


1.All guns are always loaded.
2.Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3.Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target.
4.Identify your target, and what is behind it.

I think it's a very good idea.

This has crossed my mind before, but I forgot all about it last time I was in a shop, which is not that often. I mostly buy my supplies from Dicks.

Our (Dave's) brochure is very good. It takes a very clean, sane and factual approach and if someone takes a moment to look at it will not find anything objectable in it. Really no reason NOT to put it on their counter.

BTW, I have started to leave one behind in the booth at Omaladen each time I go. It seems a lot of newbies are there. And as such they are very receptive to any new information regarding guns.

I have a very good relationship with Elizabeth and Dave at Patriot Firearms. They are very OC friendly and I know they peek in on the forum to keep their finger on the pulse.
