i am new to the site and honestly i hope this goes well. Here it goes. i have a large amount of weapon upgrades and ideas to make that the non gunsmith can install on their weapons. i also have a new optic and pistol design that will revolutionize the firearms market. if you think all the good ideas are gone then sorry you think that way. if you think the best is yet to come then get with me. i have the designs and the ideas i need some financial backing. there it is i said it. hope this doesn't go against any admin rules but that is my post. i am not half cocked or blowing smoke either and if you think you want to get with someone that can make our name recognized like Smith & Wesson, then let's do this. i am in Wilmington NC! you heard it here first.

welcome aboard thegunman! Sounds like you and me are in a very similar boat brother! I do not believe that the good ideas are gone, in fact, most good ideas are just a remake of an already existing idea! I like to think outside the box.
I wish i could help you! I hope you find what you need.

The last thing I can do is invest money (these days it's nearly impossible to pay the hosting fee's for the website)
BUT... If anyone has a good product and needs help marketing that product, I can and will assist with internet and social media marketing on the Weaponeer Channel, which is direct advertizing to the firearm and accessory market.
I have been a product consultant, tester and video marketer for some time now, and I have been helping companies in the US, Canada, China, UK, Australia, and Israel introduce products through video marketing, and it has been very successful for those companies. 500+ videos and 5+ Million Video Views does help get the word out.
If you (or anyone else, member or not) gets to the point of sales and marketing, just let me know.
It's not investment money, but it is assistance in helping to sell products, and that product money can be used in lieu of a partner if needed. Important in this economy!
There is a website that allows you to do a sales pitch for online investors. You show off your product, and state how much money you need, and if the product or idea is good enough, people will invest in the product!
But there is the catch.... Really BIG dollar investments typically don't work well, so the lower the investment the better the chance, so the catch is: If you request 5,000, and in 30 days only get 4,999 in potential grant money, you get nothing. You need to get the amount you request, in order to receive the grant money for the project. so, if you ask for $5,000 and get $5,000.. the grant money is yours, if you ask for $5,000 and get $20,000, then the grant money is yours. but if you ask for the $5,000 and never reach that amount in the selected amount of time, then your grant/investment request will fail.
You MUST have something to show, and it needs to be pretty cool, and it needs to work. and the less you ask for, the better your chances are of getting it.
Note: one such website for CREATIVE projects only is http://www.kickstarter.com/
