None, I can safely say I cannot think of a single RFD and/or firearm friendly bank.

My only advice would be register or trade under a company name that is totally inoffensive and has absolutely no suggestion of firearm related content and cross your fingers.

"Shooters R Us" - a division of "Engineering Supplies"

"Engineering Supplies" trading as "Shooters R Us"

Or variations thereof.

Bank name would be "Engineering Supplies". When you apply you do so saying you are making gadgets for the engineering industry...or similar. Very often to open an account they want a website and pictures.

Many in the trade "fake it" however you have to keep a low profile and never think you are safe. A bank can close your account in an instant if it is anti gun and they suspect you are within the trade. Paypal is another one to watch out for. Too obvious and they will close your account.

Take a look at UK gunsites and very often you will see "trading as" or similar. Some within the trade have been trading for a long time and got their bank account back when it was not so bad to be within the trade.

The above is based on my personal experience.

As I said (and my post removed!) - You'll be lucky!
The best idea is to use an unrelated name (as stated already) How about Weasley's Widgets? Lol
