I really wish more companies were in business to do what they love and to make money. I get it. You need money to survive. "Can't live on love," my dad always said, but if you do what you love, you're going to be better at it and happier. If you're rich and miserable, what's the point? Misery is misery, despite your financial situation. Being so young, I haven't grown up getting to see a lot of mom and pop shops, especially in the guitar arena because I only started playing four years ago. As far as mom and pop shops, I've really only seen gun shops like that. I love those little shops. The people are friendly, prices are fair, and they're happy to just chat about something they love. Recently went to a shop like that here. I hadn't done anything with guns since I moved away. It wasn't as fun without my dad and his military buddies, but given everything going on, I got my concealed carry permit. Went to this little shop, and everyone was great. Happy to help and talk. I ended up with a Glock 43, and they've special ordered a holster for my Beretta M9A1. PSA for gun guys: just get an M9 or 92FS! It's a b**** to get a holster for an M9A1! Anyway, sorry for my ramblings. Side effects of medication. Just a long winded way of saying I wish I got to grow up seeing more small family shops! Edit: I don't know how I screwed up the formatting and why my post is so narrow.
