ADMIN:  Do you have a credit card from Citibank or Bank of America?  If so you should know that they put special restrictions on the firearms industry after the Florida school shooting.  They must believe the gun was at fault not the shooter.  I do not have anything from either of those banks and if I did I would cut them up.  Here is the story

A hearing with top U.S. banks executives on Wednesday meant to examine the stability of the global financial system was partially eclipsed by a debate over varying gun policies instituted -- or not instituted -- by the firms.

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, for example, defended the bank’s lending to firearm manufacturers and retailers amid criticism that the company failed to adopt a responsible loan policy for the industry following the 2018 shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School.

After that tragedy, which left 17 students and staff dead, Citibank and Bank of America instituted new policies that potential firearm clients must meet, including prohibiting the sale of guns to anyone under the age of 21.

Thank you for that update; I totally empathize for the situation of hard working folks in the trade whom feel the squeeze from multiple fronts. The firearms community doesn't need to suffer from big banks trying to kill off the industry, and particularly smaller speciality shops such as yours that bring a much appreciated product line, and the hard earned skills to go with it for those of us who know the difference when we find it.
If the founding fathers could only see these politicians now........
In the meantime, keep up the excellent work JD; your knowledge and this site are really appreciated!
