Well it was a pleasant surprise to say the least. I had never done this show before and did not know what to expect. What I found out is that I need to find a lot more of these shows. My sales out of the booth paid for the weekend a couple times over. With the number of people I had talked to, I had high hopes for orders being placed over the next few weeks. It didn’t take a few weeks , today I received 5 orders. That will make it the biggest show I have ever had. It may be a fluke, but I will definitely be doing a few more of these shows. Most of the orders are gun cabinets. It will definitely help pay for a bunch of tools.

Thanks for reading.

Great to hear Monte. Taking some of that edge off the tool replacement will help. I’m happy with you.
