    If you're looking for centrefire/shotgun then there is nothing in Torquay, one very small set up in Newton which i could never find and I'm only just down the road.There is the Sportsman in Exeter easy to find and worth a look round despite adverse comments. There is also Heavitree Gun and Sports in Exeter, good old fashioned shop. Further down the road at Ivybridge is the Gun Room. Thats about it I'm afraid.

    There used to be a great gun shop in Newton Abbot itself called 'Drum Sports'. I grew up in Newton Abbot and my parents still live there. The 'Sportsman Gun centre' also started off in paignton but has since moved away!
    There isn't much left now sadly. Trago Mills do a limited service of air rifles. The Sportsman moved to Exeter/Dorchester/Litts, and still do good business. Ladds of crediton are also well established.
    A sign of the times I'm afraid!

    Drum sports, gone but not forgotten, with Bob and Nobby.
    Quite right MS, forgot Ladds at Crediton. A good selection there and a few deals to be had.

    Check by phone to see if they are open before travelling to Ladds. I'm not sure if they are still the same but they didn't open on weekends as they wanted to go shooting.

    Optics Warehouse is in Paignton. Not a shop, but you can visit the premises if you give them a call.
