Private Armories

With new regulatory regimes coming down, there may be an in for some entrepeneur to set up a private armory.

A place to store some of your shooting irons across state lines and away from the sticky fingers of the local constabulary with confiscation on their minds.

Of course, how the details will work out is beyond me.  There would have to be a good vault.  The owner would probably have to be an FFL.  Might be a good idea to have a range on site to make it worth the trip.  Insurance or a bond would have to workable to be sure everyone is protected.

Yeah, lots of hinky details with a group of people that aren't known for trusting 3rd parties to watch their firearms.  And the bigger and more successful they got, the more chance someone would want to break in and take everything.

But it would be neat to have it an old Armory building that used to dot the American landscape.

Gee, I've been telling people who live in Volksrepubliks for a couple of years now to find a Storage Shed across the State Line and put in a Gun Safe. Ask Jay, Beer'd, YOU....

I was going to say it but it appears Les beat me to it.

One of the most believable parts of some action movies is the small self storage tucked somewhere out of the way, billing to a prepaid card, chock full of blued steel, brass, and lead.
