I have a new idea for a business venture. It would involve opening up a gun storage business. This business would stow weapons securely for GFL holders anywhere from one hour to all day. This way legal gun toters can tend to errands in the restricted areas of Atlanta, then get their guns back afterwards to go to the range or what not. I'm going to open one. Maybe the name will be called "Gun Toters Storage", or "The Disarmory"

Another market would be for folks that want to get FFL's. You could offer your location for gun storage and sales. The FFL applicants could use your location as their place of business. You could receive their mail and deliveries. Much like Mailboxes Inc.

To get an FFL, you can't live in a residential area that is zoned against business operation. I would need an address zoned for businesses. That was the hurdle I couldn't surmount.

I imagine the insurance being extremely high on the OP's idea.

As for the second idea: that's legal? Seems like you want to use the same address for several different FFL/businesses. Seems iffy to me.

Get approval to open a storage facility at the airport. Drop 'em off on the way in and pick 'em up on the way out. :D

Its legal, I asked the ATF. Basically, they monitor your books and inventory. As long as the paperwork is good, they don't have issues. Surprisingly, they had no standards for storage of inventory. The lady I talk to says you'd could keep the inventory anywhere, as long as it complied with local zoning laws.

That's cool. I didn't know that.

small niche market to me.
Not to mention if GCO get our way we will put you out of business. There won't be anywhere (short of federal restrictions) that we can't go.

I agree. That's probably the best location. Well, the airport and downtown near all the off-limits government buildings.

A guy who used to drive in and out of Canada on a regular basis told me he used to dig a hole on this side of the border, bury his well packaged pistol, enter Canada and dig it up on his way out. Sounds like your proposed service would be somewhat similar. I wish you well :righton:

It helps to have a friend/customer in the County Commisioners office.

The ATF requires "Secure Storage", it can be a lockable cabinet, safe, or a seperate secureable room. I went with steel cabinets and a safe.
