We are open for Storage Customers on Wednesdays and Saturdays!
We are relieved to say that after a successful trial last Saturday, we will now be opening every Wednesday and Saturday 10AM to 2PM, for storage customers to collect and drop off their guns. We will continue this until there is a change in the guidelines for retail outlets. Please note this is by appointment only, with 8 slots available, each day. Once these are gone, there will be no more added and there will be no entry without appointment. If you wish to use this facility do not hesitate to get in touch on 0207 351 0005.
Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in person very soon!

Over-and-under is by far the most popular choice of shotgun among today’s game shooters.
It took until just before World War I for a marketable over-and-under to be developed by which time London and Birmingham gunmakers were experimenting with the design.
The lighter single barrel makes the semi-automatic easier to manage particularly for those with a smaller build.
Traditionalists will undoubtedly choose a side-by-side shotgun with its undeniable elegance and style.
The first game shotguns were produced in the 17th century and were single barrelled but as the sport grew in popularity so the advantage of a quick second barrel gained ground. Barrels held together by soldering first appeared in France in the 1730s.
