    Some clubs don't charge a thing and others want an arm & leg. So I'm told by a few venders when I asked if they were attending XYZ shoot.

    You have to contact each club and see what the policy is.

    Like any other business, you must first determine a product for which there is a steady demand. Then investigate each shoot individually and determine wheather it will be worth your time and investment to man a booth there. Martinpicker

    Clubs need vendors and vendors need clubs. The ones with vendors will certainly see more shooting activity. Those clubs that for whatever reason discourage vending through petty jealousy or ridiculous fees are usually left with few shooters!!

    Guns should sell good.

    I hear a fellow named Merlyn has gotten incredibly rich just vending guns at big shoots and just giving away good advice.

    Roger,


    Honey please.. Exactly who is in charge?


    You’ve omitted several significant demographic elements:


    Is she your first and only betrothed?


    How long has the license been in effect?


    Are you an amorous lover?

    Does she reciprocate?

    Can she cook fer shit?

    Can you reciprocate?

    Your question is fraught with peril.


    Having stated the above it's nothing your lovely bride couldn't overcome with appropriate libations and boyish charm.


    Take her and see what haappens.


    Mine ended up whupping my ass.
