He's actually trying to stay IN business. It's ironic. The usual issue is local people going to the local store to check out a product, then jumping
online to buy it at a discount. Local bookstores, just as one example, are closing in droves because everyone can get a hefty discount at amazon.
Competing with online for brick & mortar stores that have to pay retail rents and hire employees to staff the place is an increasingly risky business.
Going online may be the only way he can survive.
If you are seriously in the market you could always talk to your local FFL and ask for a deal. Cash in hand talks louder than a potential sale that
isn't there yet. Of course, if you're just being theoretical here and not intending to buy anything, well, that's the reason this guy has gone
online. If you're not going to buy from him anyway, it's hardly a disservice that he's trying to get business for himself.
