    Yea, I have had great service there, good supply of reloading components and tools,
    and carries a good variety of firearms and goods, prices pretty sharp.
    I will often go to Stratford, even thought its a bit further, low stress drive, no traffic lights, and normally park right outside the door.

    I always call in here when I'm visiting my parents. I like their selection of reloading gear. Puts my local to shame big time.

    Bought a .22 Marlin from that shop a few years ago now. Pretty sharp price too.

    differance here is that Dave has competitively shot most rifle and pistol disciplines , and actually knows what he is talking about. Which cant be said for the sales people at either New Plymouth or Wanganui Hunting and Fleecing , which is the only other supplier of firearms nearby.

    I just hope whoever takes over is a shooter too , as the stock of reloading components is better than most other gunshops.
