Business Consultation

Business Firearms Purchase Consultation (BFPC)

Business Firearms Purchase Consultations are strictly for businesses that are going to be purchasing a firearm(s) for self defense at the business. The decision to purchase a firearm for protection at your business location is one that should not be taken lightly. There are many things to consider before deciding what types of firearm(s) you are going to purchase for use in protection at a business location.

Bringing a firearm into a business is a decision that requires deliberative thought. There are many factors you should be thinking about. First and foremost are safe storage, possible customer access to the firearm(s), possible employee access to the firearm(s), whether the firearm will be carried at all times or be in a central location, how often you’ll practice and whether your employees will also have access to the firearm. Going down to the local gun shop and buying the latest “popular” firearm may not be the proper choice for you. What works for one person may not work for another. Two basic factors are crucial; the firearm must fit your hand properly and you must be comfortable shooting that firearm.

Sandpoint Arms offers Business Firearms Purchase Consultations (BFPC). We begin with a phone consultation where we will gather some basic information from your business. A few of the factors we will discuss are your size, previous firearms handling and shooting experience, whether you will have employee access to the firearm(s) and how often you plan to practice with your firearm. From there we will put together an initial list of suggested firearms that we have first hand experience with. We will then setup a time where we have a face to face consultation. At that meeting we will have available to you the firearms we have chosen as initial prospects for your purchase. You will be able to physically handle the firearms and we can make some determinations on fit and whether they will meet your needs. The second step in the consultation is to actually shoot the firearms. We can have arrangements setup with a range for that same day or we can schedule a separate day for this. This is a crucial step. Many firearms that may feel good in the hand may feel uncomfortable for you to shoot. You MUST be comfortable with any firearm your purchase. You need to have confidence in your ability to handle and shoot the firearm. We can help you come to the proper solution for YOUR personal situation.

Business Firearms Purchase Consultations (BFPC) are required to be held at your business location. We can then use the logistics of your business layout as factors in helping you choose the proper firearm(s). If there will be employee access to the firearm(s) we require that anyone who will have access to the firearm(s) also attend the BFPC.

BFPCs start at $300 plus expenses. This fee is based on the assumption that one person (business owner) will be attending the consultation. This includes 3 hours of consultation time which will be approximately one hour at your business location and two hours at the range. Depending on your prior experience with firearms we may end up spending more time at your business and less time at the range. Each consultation is unique and we will let your personal situation dictate the format of the consultation. The only extra expenses above the $300 fee will be the range fees and the actual cost of the ammunition your fire. These fees will be paid by you directly to the range. We will provide you with proper hearing and eye protection.

If the firearm will be available to your employees or if you are thinking of purchasing several firearms for employee use there will be additional time needed for the BFBC. Additional time is based on $100 an hour and billed in 30 minute increments.
