This is the first weird time that I have had to go through as a range owner. COVID-19. I want to balance being helpful with being safe. But, at the end of the day we are a customer driven business, so if the customers care about it, then so do I.
I checked my main wholesaler today and they have under 200 boxes of 9mm in stock. 90 of which are blanks, lol. I may start an email list for ammo availability. My concern is that it will take time for ammo supplies to get back and members won't be able to get the ammo they need to shoot at the range.
I have seen a small rise in the amount of people contacting me to purchase guns, but I don't advertise that side of the business, so it's not surprising that no one accidentally finds me.
We are waiting for the grass to cover at the range and then we will be open for business! Since only a few people at a time go to the range, and it's outdoor, the virus won't stop that. But, ammo shortages may...
