    Just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that Proactive Shooters will now be conducting our firearms training classes at the new Bass Pro Shop in Hanover! We still plan to offer some classes at our normal West End location as well, but that may change in the future. If you havent been to the store yet, GO! Its fantastic!

    I am honored that Bass Pro selected us to provide the training for their customers.

    Isn't that a little like turning the chocoholic loose in the candy store?

    I don't even want to hear about your new discount privledges.

    One stop shopping at it's best.

    Aren't you glad that you didn't get things worked out with that "other place" now?
    Course if you do end up with both, you'd have a lock on the big box market.

Every time I go, I walk around for 2 hours minimum. Love the restaurant as well. We need to hit that for a monthly OC dinner as they are very OC friendly!

    I don't even want to hear about your new discount privledges. Actually, I dont have any discount privledges. I'm treated like any other customer as it should be. I'm not doing anything special to deserve a discount. I'm just providing a service to their customers.

    Actually you are providing a benefit to BPS otherwise I doubt that they would agree to the arrangement. They are not in the being nice business although it is good business to be nice.

    Everytime a student walks in the door, they become a pre-qualified target customer. That's something that mass media advertising cannot do. Even if the square footage cost amortized is a loss to them, they will profit from direct sales to these student/customers, families and friends.

    You are also providing a service for BPS and if I were management, you would be eligible for the employee discount.

    Congrats!~
