An email we got this week got me to thinking about how many products we use everyday and how we never think to thank the creators. If the product does not perform as expected we are quick to tell all of our friends and write a scathing review. How often do we appreciate all of the products we need to get through our day?
Stop reading for one minute and think of all of the products you are using right now... A desk, your chair, clothes, air conditioning to keep you cool, and even your computer - as much as a love/hate relationship you have with it right now, you are on the internet reading a blog, right? It's a great piece of technology whether it tugs along or not.
One person used our product, Kikstands, and took time out of his busy day to send us a kind email. If you know anything about Gun Storage Solutions, you know that we are a small, family business. The pater familias imagined and created each product in the USA. We read this email and felt immediate validation for all of our hard work in producing a helpful product.
Please read this email from Greenwood Guns & Gear, think of a product that has helped you and let the manufacturer know how much you like it.
To whom it may concern:
For quite a while, we'd displayed our pistols (and some rifles) by placing pens, pencils and short dowels through the trigger guards. While an effective method of "standing them up," it left a lot to be desired in the "professional appearance department." Add to that the necessity of keeping a uniform gun cabinet & suddenly, there isn't a writing utensil to be found anywhere in the store!
While on a recent vacation, my business partner and friend, Jeff and I, went out exploring. Nearby our cabin was a small shopping center which housed a small firearm store - what a coincidence! We stopped in to browse their selection and immediately the first thing that popped out to me was the excellent presentation of their handguns. They were using your kickstands and it was a very impressive alternative to our "make due" solution.
As soon as we got back, I ordered the same kickstands - pricing was very reasonable, shipping was fair (and SUPER fast), and we've already put the kickstands to work in our store. My wife even said, "Wow - that looks so much better."
As a (very) new firearms retailer, we're constantly looking for little ways to make a big difference. Your product has done just that. Just wanted to say thanks.
Thank you for your kind words, Greenwood Guns & Gear. We are so glad you like our products and wish the best for your new gun shop.
