The Big News We have all been waiting for….. The Shipment is In…

Posted under Events

At last after months of doing battle with the various powers that be, the published list of guns has finally arrived from the US of A

It will take a while to push them through proof and restore what needs attention, but so far the indications are good – not one dodgy bore.

If there is anything you want to reserve or talk about please get in touch asap.

I’m only a third of the way through and its taken a day so far….!  But I’m having lots of fun.
