    Betty? this place is outstanding. Even the Cutlery Department (we have 5 cases of them) would have you envious. hehehe ... ...The whole store covers 3 floors......about 750,000 sq feet I think... .I've been a customer of the store for over 25yrs, so when I was invited to work there, I jumped at the chance.
    The online inventory of shooting sports items isn't complete. The online list is nothing, compaired to what's actually in the display cases lol
    Yep, they even have an outlet store for all they sell. Also an Extreme sports outlet (a short distance from the main store) for paintball, bikes, etc.

    Euc? Chris? Capt?, and QK? you'd love it if you worked there lol
    Hey - that's a given Bob but at same time I'd regard it - for me anyways - as high risk!!! Heck - I have some resistance to temptation but oh man - that would be torture

    You know the donkey and the carrot? - this ol' mule would have every caliber carrot out there, and some - but also would probably be filing bancruptcy too!

    Class3, And why haven't you joined us yet at www.northeastshooters.com?? Seriously, others in the Northeast region would be most interested in what goes on at KTP, sales, etc.

    I knew when you mentioned the size of the place that it just had to be KTP! Nothing else in this whole region even approaches it in size. The only bad part of KTP policies is that they will not recognize any C&R FFLs!

    Are they still running the wholesale side there too, Shawmut Distributing?

    It's been years since I've been up there but I'm still on their mailing list for the occasional sale flier.

    I have enough problems with being at the shop with the best handgun selection in the area, and we only stock about 250 at any given time of everything in total.

    The trades are what kill me.

    I got a Walther PP w/ box and 2 matching mags with Satan's personal serial number that came in with my name on it tonight.

    So much for the shop owing *me* money. :)

    I've always wanted to work in a gun shop, I'd love the job. But I'd be scared to death that I would end up in perpetual debt! I don't drink or gamble, but I doubt that I could withstand the pressure of some of the deals that come across the counter.

    The local pawnbroker once asked me if I wanted a job, and I'd have done it too if the hours worked for me. I was seriously offered pay in guns.
