    Hi Guys
    Just wanted to take a minute of your time

    It is ANZAC day over here in New Zealand and Australia, it is the day when we remember all those military personnel who gave their lives in the various conflicts over the years.

    I think that it is important, especially for us who enjoy our gun collecting and shooting to spare a thought for the brave soles who originally used our old Enfields and so on in very different circumstances and did not have pleasure to take them out for safe sunny days at the range.

    So maybe take a quick look at your old guns today make sure they are as clean as they should be and think for a moment about the original owners.

    Thanks for your time

    The memories are one reason I cherish some of the guns in my collection. It is always good to remember those that carried them before us.

    My appreciation and remembrances extend to those in NZ and Australia for those who have served over the years.
