Firearms Store & Shooting Range in Calvert?

Hi there folks. I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself.

My name is Chuck Early, and I just recently started a firearms sales business this year, here in Prince Frederick. For now I am operating out of my home, and I donít have much in the way of inventory, but I will order anything somebody might want (provided it is available). I am also currently conducting basic pistol, and home protection courses at a private range here in Calvert. I do have a website, but am in the process of upgrading it. Please feel free to take a look. www.freestatemilitiafirearms.com

I have recently been looking into the possibility of opening a shooting range here in Calvert. Currently, I am in the process of obtaining some market research, and putting together a very solid business plan and proposal that I intent to offer to a couple of key individuals. I have already spoken with some of the County Commissioners, and the Sherriff, and have their support. The only thing that looks to stop me at this point will be the capital funds, and EPA regs.

I certainly donít want to give anyone a false sense of hope, as I have read the many threads of those who have come before me. I am quickly beginning to realize that this will not be an easy undertaking, but it is one that I know would be profitable, and is definitely needed.

In an effort to provide the shooting community with what is desperately needed here in So.MD I am keeping my sales prices low. Mostly, not more than $50 to $100 over wholesale on new firearms, and definitely under MSRP on ammo and accessories. My goal is to provide the best deal I can, but still try to make some profit to apply to future plans (i.e. - a shooting range). I will also do transfers for $50 on both pistols and long guns.

I am asking for your support to help get my business off the ground, and running. If you, or anyone you know is in the market for a new firearm, or in need of any ammo or accessories, please pass on my information.

As of right now I plan on getting a table at the Silverado Show in Nov. Please stop by, I would very much like to meet you all.

FWIW, I know Chuck. He's a good guy, will treat his customers right.
And it has always shocked me that there is nowhere to shoot in Calvert County.

Welcome Chuck! It's funny how I was just talking about having to go out of the county to shoot just this week. I'll keep you in mind for future purchases and I'll be watching for the new range to open up.
