Thread: Newbie from North Wales

  1. #1

    Newbie from North Wales

    I have been following this site for some time and am impressed by the depth of knowledge amongst the members. I have found it useful on a number of occasions. I have been in the gun trade for 37 years, during which time I have run a retail premises, toured the country as a rep, loaded shotgun cartridges, repaired guns and made stocks. Latterly I am in the distribution side of the gun trade, best known as UK distributor for Krieghoff and newly, Lynx Rifles from Finland. My company are Zeiss Center Partners and also represent Bauer, an optics company. We specialise in scope mounting and represent Recknagel and the exciting new Ziegler ZP mount. Yes, I am sure I should be a Trade Member but could not find any link for that. Please let me have the information and I will sign up.

    Although I shot rifles extensively in my youth I got sidetracked into Clay Shooting only to return in the past few years. I have been lucky enough to hunt in Germany and only last year shot my first Scottish Red Stag. My only regret is that I did not take up stalking 30 years ago.

    Welcome to the site, go to the classified section and at the top in the yellow banner it explains about being a trade member and how to become one.

    Welcome to the site Alan, I had some dealings with you in the past regarding my Blaser and always got good service. Actually the reason I joined up to this site was to answer a question from someone regarding fitting a bipod stud to the underside of a Blaser off road stock and I posted some photos of the modification you had made to mine - I still think it is a great job.

    Like you I'm a relative newcomer to stalking and I too regret not doing it 20 years ago.

    No, Switzerland ATM and will be for at least 2-3 years if not longer I should think! Just working on finding a non-company flat to live in and getting my firearms permit sorted and then joining a club.

    Keep well and good luck with your season!
