Default Cash Mobs to Support Local Gun Shops

If you haven't heard of a Cash Mob before it's an event where a group of people coordinate to show up at a snall business in order buy something and support that business. This helps the business in two ways, the immediate profit from having many customers in one day and also by giving more people exposure to the store for repeat business.

Given how much small gun shops are hurting right now I think we should apply this model to the local gun shops in our area to support them. They don't make much money from firearms sales and there is hardly any ammo left to sell so the only source of real profit is accessories. So if we organized a group to go and each buy some small $10 - $30 item it would make a big difference.

If we dont support the local gun stores and they go out of business then there's really no point in fighting for gun rights because the guns and ammo won't be available.

I recommend the first place be Annie's Get your Gun in Corona, CA. I've been there a few times and it seems they aren't doing that great.

If interested let me know and we can set up a date and time.

Ha, the last thing a LGS needs right now is a "cash mob." Based on the inflated prices they're charging I'm avoiding them like the plague right now. If they want our business they need to stop ripping us off.

Great idea. especially if the shop knows in advance that this is happening. they can prepare with a few extra employees and overstocked items at very discounted "sale" prices. It is a win, win.

We all need to cash mob, right now at a local theater.
The pro 2nd amendment movie " Assaulted " has only one day left to get just a few tickets reserved or it will not be shown.
It happens on July 10 and even if you can't make it, it would be great if people were reserving ticket
This independent theater is the type that will continue to show this movie throughout the year if there is an interest.
Try a search here for the "Assaulted movie Oakland"
there are two threads and only the one started by Kestryll has the link that works works and consider reserving tickets, even if you end up giving it away for free if you can't go.If you can't even do that just make a comment there, so it gets bumped to the top.

^^^ - Link to reserve tickets

Thanks, carry on.

sorry if I changed the subject a bit, from gun stores to theaters, and we made our goal in the show will go on on July 10th thank you very much.
I am 100 percent down to continue on with planning cash mobs at gun stores.
