‘Black Gun’ Myths

Advertising is a form of marketing communication used to promote or sell a product, service or idea. This covers a lot of ground, from companies that use it to make their products desirable, to politicians that want you to buy into their views. It can be positive or negative, such as explaining the health benefits of a particular food, or smearing the reputation of an opposing political candidate.

Trapshooting

Trapshooting is a sport of movement, action and split-second timing. It requires accuracy and skill to repeatedly aim, fire and break the 4.25 inch orange discs which are propelled through the air at high speed. Each time a disc is launched it flies at a different angle and trajectory, with mere seconds for a shot to be taken before it is out of range or hits the ground.

What Makes our Pawn Shop so Interesting?

We all know that pawn shops, ours included, deal in many common commodities. There are firearms, coins, jewelry, tools, home electronics, car audio and many other products you would expect to find at a pawn shop. But one of the most interesting things is that our inventory is always in motion, and by the very nature of a business like this, we sometimes come across unique items that do not fit into our general product categorization.

The Shotgun – a Multi-Purpose and Versatile Platform

When looking for various firearms, most have a fairly defined scope of operations. A long range, high powered rifle is specifically tasked with hitting targets at great distances. A semi-automatic pistol finds its purpose in close quarters encounters, such as law enforcement and personal protection. Rimfire rifles reign supreme in varmint control and target practice. Within each category, there are obviously some varied applications, but in general, you don’t hunt deer with a Glock nor do you plink rodents with a .338 Lapua tactical sniper rifle.

To Pawn or not to Pawn, that is the question…

The modern pawn shop is a unique institution in today’s business world. It is a place where you can get a quick loan for items of value, or quick cash for items you wish to sell. You can also shop a robust and varied inventory of merchandise at remarkable prices.
