In the immortal words of the Great Keanu Reeves,
"you need a license to buy a dog, or drive a car. Hell, you need a license to catch a fish! But they'll let any butt-reaming asshole be a father."
This is true, but also reminds me of another quote, "Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.” — Anne Geddes
I have always been a proponent of having Fathers Day changed to "Dad's Day". Here is why, like Keanu said, anyone can be a sperm donor, any man can drink a beer and not give a crap how his offspring turns out, but only special men, whether of blood or not, can give of themselves, and support and nurture, and raise a family. Father is just another word for I was present at one point. Dad means you stayed the course.
The picture above is of my Dad. He was a good Dad, he raised a batch of us, and we all turned out as productive members of society. He and I never seemed to see eye to eye in this world, maybe I was just too much like him, and maybe like I do with my boys, he saw too much of him in me. But he raised me right, he taught and instilled values, and a work ethic, and that NO MATTER WHAT family comes first. He was a family man. He didn't go out to the bars, he raised us with good Christian values, and being the only son, he raised me to be respectful, and polite, and gentle... until it was time not to be.
He was a Marine, and above all taught me the value of serving ones nation. This lesson would go on to form me, good or bad, into the man I became. I would go on to spend years with the US Marine Corps as a Corpsman (kinda like a medic but we knew who our parents were, sorry Army).
I have tried to be nothing like my father. He was a hard man, and hard to talk to, and would not accept failure or excuses. As I have grown older, I have seen the parts of him in me that raised the bar for my children, and pushed and pulled them through adversity, and raised them to be able to fight for what they believe in. He has been gone now for the better part of a decade. My harsh memories have softened, my outlook on our relationship now not as grim. I look forward to the day when we will meet again, and no matter what all we each accomplished in our lives, the titles we will cherish, and hold highest will be that of Dad...
God Bless the True and Rightful President,
President Donald TRUMP

We have dogs. They are loud. They bark when you knock on the door, ring the doorbell, stand in the yard, or come in. There is nothing you can do to prevent it, and usually as soon as you are in, they calm down. The dogs don't bite, the little one is the mean one and he only has one tooth, so you may pet judiciously.
Click the button and it will take you to a free training, takes about 5 minutes, then you can print out your certificate valid for 5 years for the purchase of Semi Automatic Rifles. It is FREE!!!
Most of you know I run a small shop, and right now my inventory is empty. I have cash in hand to purchase your pistol, revolver, factory rifle (sorry no builds), or shotgun. I am not looking to pay retail but we will offer you as close as we can, and not looking for rough looking guns, I am looking for clean guns that you may want to sell quickly, easily, and for a fair price. TEXT me at (509)475-8125 and the worst we can do is not agree on a price, I will certainly give any gun a fair shake. Not much into bolt guns unless they are military, but give me a text anyway, we will do what we can. I thank you for looking at my add. I may also be interested in factory ammo (no home reloads please) but may consider factory reloads. We are paying approximately 30-50 cents a round for most ammo, and up to $1 a round for some harder to find magnum calibers. I may be interested in your magazines as well, and always like hi cap drums, worst I can say is no.
A word on pricing- We traditionally will do a comparative value looking at what your gun may be SELLING for on auction not the outrageous prices that are on Gunbroker with zero bids or buy it now prices that are never realized, and will price it according to the newest version of The Blue Book of Gun Values, the bible of gun pricing. We consider this to be retail and will usually offer 70-80% of retail. We seldom compare to what other stores are selling them for, especially in these times. Please understand, I am not buying the gun as a hobby, my intention is to sell the gun at a competitive price, and to do so, must pay less than that. I am not trying to gouge anyone, and most that I buy from feel they were offered a fair sale price.
We have had a lot of new customers, that haven't dealt with us before wanting to sell or trade their guns for top dollar or more. It is simple math, we need to sell the gun cheaper than the next guy to sell it, and we need to buy it for less than that so it makes it worth our while. Our formula is usually 70-80% of what we will be asking for the gun, which is about what the going rate is. It is not a magic potion that determines what we will give for a gun, look it up on line, find what they are SELLING for, not the insane asking prices on Gunbroker, and multiply by 0.7 thats the magic formula. We have had several people get very upset with this. Thankfully none of these have been any of our regular customers, and we are VERY thankful for that.
Thank you for your time,

Due to i1639 Haynes and Sons Guns will no longer be selling, for the most part, AR15's.

Due to i1639 Haynes and Sons Guns will no longer be selling, for the most part, AR15's. We will be selling upper and lower receivers, and if you decide to buy a combo for a discount and later assemble the two, that is between you and the Lord. But as far as the State is concerned that will be only a Federal NICS check with no waiting period, no extra fee's, no needed class. The ATF and NICS have agreed that WA residents will be able to purchase lower receivers for the next year until Washington state is able to make provisions for the transfer. Please respect our wishes to no longer sell this deadly and evil weapon, and only to sell harmless receivers. Thank you for your support.
We hold the values of family and service to our nation very high. We are a Veteran owned company, and family run. You will frequently see Jason (Dad) Mike (Son) Becca (Daughter) Isaac (Son) and Jeanette (Wife) selling, Mike and Jason building guns, and Jeanette and Becca running the behind the scenes books and finances. We began this business to assist with Jeanette in college, and now that she has graduated, it goes to pay Mike, Nick, Becca, and Isaac's tuition.
We come from a long line of Veterans, First Responders, and Police. We celebrate community service. All Military- active or veteran, all police, all fire, and all first responders including ER and Crisis Workers will receive 5% off and $10 transfers. Thank you for your Service.
