Following on from Pine Marten's bad experience in London name your favourite gun and rifle shops - past and present.
For me my favourites are / were:
Brock and Norris:
Mike Norris - not exactly old-fashioned as he is at the top of his game and the new shop is uber modern. Absolute gentleman and customer service is top notch.
R. MacLeod of Tain, Scottish Highlands:
Gregor MacLeod is just a top bloke to deal with and the shop is definitely a place to not drive past.
Highland Ordnance Co., Dunvegan, Isle of Skye:
Ben Miller - total legend - knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and always gives me the best deal he can. The shop is full of all sorts of things and there's always something to tempt you to part with cash. Started me on reloading over 20 years ago and haven't looked back.
Shooters Supplies, Luib, Isle of Skye:
No longer there now, but it was hidden at the back of the Pipers' Moon Tea Room. Coffee and cake and gun oil....excellent.
Grahams Gunshop, Castle Street, Inverness
Always something to buy. Good selection of kit and ammo. Good service, though it can be busy at times. And if you're into fly fishing you'll be there for hours!
Not sure if it's still there, but it used to be a great wee shop.
Highland Industrial Supplies (HIS), Inverness
The don't yet sell guns, rifles and cartridges, but great selection of accessories, clothing and a massive selection of hardware.
