To clarify my abrupt answer, I am the sole proprietor of an ammunition business. All legal, licensed and such. Periodically people have seen what I've got going on and want in as a partner or investor. For a partner someone needs to be equally vested in what they bring to the table not just someone that thinks there is money to be made riding on my back. An investor wants profit on their money and that is money out of my pocket. If anyone makes money off of me, it should be me.

Could you clarify, what you are asking of your partner. Whether it be shop b!tch, xxx years experience gunsmithing and 40hrs a week to apply towards the business, accountant/adminstrative/book keeper (both financial and FFL), financial. etc.

I'm not looking for a partner period, I thought I was pretty clear on that with my first statement.
My apologies, I clicked the wrong post to reply. It was meant for the OP. I was jumping back and forth from responding to classified messages and posts and didn't scroll back up high enough. He asked not only investor but partner, and would be beneficial to him to list what he brought to the table other than financial support. If any

Example, if I personally were in his shoes.
I'd list my years of working in the firearms industry on the manufacturer end of things, how many FFL's I've worked for and running paperwork. My experience as a gunsmith. etc. Like a quick resume.
And I can contribute XXXXX Dollars. And I will receive XX% of profits and you'll pay me XXX per hr gunsmithing etc.

It's crazy how many solicitations I've gotten or at ffl's I've worked for to "partner". But they were all talk and the financial incentive was laughable in most cases. The only thing they brought to the table was money at the end of the day. Because they brought no skills, expertise or experience

Seems even clearer to me that nobody asked you, except for a mistaken click that would never have occurred without your oddly irrelevant comment. As a business owner myself, I can understand the sentiment, though.

Imagine if people replied to classifieds here with “I don’t want your item”.

I'm interested in either starting up an FFL Type 1 + SOT with a partner or two, or joining an existing FFL as an investor and partner. If anyone in the community is interested, let me know and we can chat more.
I would encourage you to pursue the idea. The more FFLs the better imho. Even without a partnership you might be able to share space with another FFL or two or three. Good luck!

I’ve tossed around the idea of an FFL+SOT just for fun and for access to some of the perks. My main business only takes a couple hours a week, so I have plenty if time. What did you have in mind, a brick and morter store front or more of a kitchen table operation?

PM me if you want to discuss it further. I have a friend who ran an FFL with his brother for a few years who said he would be willing to help with any questions. I won’t presume you do, or do not, have any business acumen.
