Many of you know already, I am strategically moving to Michigan. This is an expansion operation. The reasons: A: my mom, although in good health, is getting old. She is almost 80, and I would like to be near her. I would regret it if I wasn't around to enjoy her if (God forbid, she died). My dad passed in 1993 and I miss him every day. B: I deal with many LE agencies in the midwest, and it would help to be able to be closer to service them. C: its super cheap to buy a house. I bought a kick-a$$ place for pennies.(no, not anywhere near Detroit) Actually about 2.5 hours away from that dump. its in Hastings Michigan. D: This opens up new markets for the products I sell. E: I believe that my income is in jeopardy if the economy does another 2008 thing, and Oregon is not sustainable for my lifestyle and choice of career. F: As dumb as it sounds, its closer to Germany. The flights are shorter, and we still maintain a home there. g: I love change. (not in the Obama way) just the chance to mix life up. I have a lust for life. Adventure and travel. Will you ever see me again? A: Yes. I will be here in OR and WA 1-2 weeks out of every month. I AM NOT CLOSING SHOP on my Oregon or Washington offices. B: I may miss the August and September PDX gun shows, (they are only 2 weeks apart, and traditionally pretty slow anyway) but I will be at the October, November, and all the other PDX shows. C: I will be commuting back and forth every month to manage my accounts, so I will be around for beers. What does this mean for you guys that have NFA items in my safe for transfer, and can I buy stuff through you still? A: Yes, you can still buy NFA items and firearms from me. Northwest Armory also carries the Silencerco/SWR products I sell also. I am a distributor for them, so you will get the same price there. B: NFA Transfers will go on like usual.(retarded wait times) C: PDX Gunshow handgun transfers will still happen at my office like normal the days following the gun show. D: Regrettably. I don't see doing transfers of online gun purchases, unless there is a method I haven't thought about. I won't be in the office like normal to receive packages. Will coctailer still be a moderator on NWFA? Yes. I will still be a mod here. I don't do a very good job of it because I'm always busy now, but I love it here. What is the "Expansion Operation?" My plan is to have offices in Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Florida, and Texas.(Ya, ther are better places, I know, but these ones are easier for me to get set up in) New Hampshire is on the radar as well mainly because of the Free State Project. Google it. Feel free to ask any questions.
