With the goal of bringing online researchers and local brick-and-mortar businesses together, Lyon Multi-Media LLC has launched the website http://www.GunShopsUSA.com - a National Independent Firearm Retailers Directory. In 2011, the gun industry experienced a dramatic increase in sales of personal firearms, with Black Friday being the biggest day in sales history according to USA Today (Dec 1, 2011). GunShopsUSA.com wants to bring the increasing amount of online gun sales back to the local independent guns shops and the small businesses that make America great.
The benefit for gun buyers is a simple one-click solution to find over 40,000 local independent gun shops, pawnshops and other locations where they can purchase firearms locally, support the local economy and build a face-to-face relationship with small business owners in their community.
GunShopsUSA.com also gives gun shops a very cost effective way to promote their business. As a Member of GunShopsUSA.com, gun shops can provide additional information to online researchers including printable coupons and downloadable sales flyers.
“When I ventured out to purchase my first handgun I, like the majority of people today, went online to research the proper gun for my needs,” said Bruce Lyon, owner of Lyon Multi-Media LLC. “I rarely purchase anything online but I struggled to find all but a few of the local guns shops in my area. Now with GunShopsUSA.com, gun buyers will be able to find, visit and build a relationship with the gun shop(s) that they can trust and want to support.”
The philosophy behind the GunShopsUSA.com is to encourage the millions who research online to buy local. When someone buys online it takes revenue away from hard working small business owners, local communities and eventually may cost people their jobs.
“I believe that we should return to the days when we purchased from businesses in our neighborhoods when ever possible”, said Lyon. “Wouldn’t it be nice to do business with your neighbor rather than large box stores that may or may not be owned by US corporations.”
