OOC: Hello all,

I am intending to trying to cut my own slice in the market of the NationStates Arms trade, but I am a little stumped on starting a storefront. Particularly, how do you work out the costs of the manufacturing of the weapons? Obviously, this is pretty important because then you can set prices and make profit. (:D)

Any other advice would be appreciated.

Regards all.

Well, usually you can google a site or something to find some prices...I don't have them bookmarked right now, but maybe someone else does.

Also, you can guestimate and get comments.

Bump for any other comments? :)

Correct, its a sort of web-ring they have going on.

As for your store-front, I'd say go for it!

PS: Links to pictures also do wonders for me, maybe a tip for you.
