Whether they sell 5 guns in 5 days or 5 guns in one day, the profit should be the same. And with the recent increase in gun prices, they should be making a killing. So regardless of if they can't keep stuff on the shelves, as long as the shipments keep coming at the same, or close to same, pace they should be just fine. It's the same as getting paid once a month or every week, the only difference is budgeting.

BTW, went to Gander Mtn over lunch today...they don't even have bricks of .22LR on the shelf. WTF??? They did, however, have about 200rds of 5.56mm on the shelf though.
Your math is off. These guys sell 5 guns in 5 days but then can't sell Ny more because they can't get anymore.
