I recently had a good reminder to support the small businesses. I used to buy most of my firearms and ammo at a locally owned gun shop, but after Gander Mt. and later on Fleet Farm moved into the area I found the prices and availability brought me to their stores. I had bought a rifle for my son's birthday back in 1992 and requested a serial # search from the old store because the gun had been stolen from my son's home and the # was needed for a search warrant for the suspect's residence. The owner of the shop had two of her staff searching old records for several hours, and found every gun that I had bought from them except for the one I needed. I offered to pay for their time, but she wouldn't accept it, so I did buy some things that I don't really need to at least show some support.
