Update January 13, 2018
Well, I'm finally sorta mobile again (able to get to the the computer, at least) after an infection that had me totally out of it since Christmas. Ambulance to Emergency, the works - for a long time I felt like I was circling the drain :) On the mend now, but still very weak, and although I have a lot to do, I do have to realize I have limitations, and getting stronger is my first priority. Obviously, the usual saturday and wednesday open times are suspended until further notice.
It has been tough on Jean, especially, and although very frustrating for me, it has been doubly so for her. Better times are ahead!
Now here! A 9mm FN-S semiauto that appears NIB but has a couple hundred rounds through it - just broken in! Complete with case and three mags. $490 out the door. sold :)
This is Ruger's wonderful SR9 in 9mm and do these ever feel nice in the hand - especially smaller hands like mine! Looks new but actually has a couple hundred rounds through it, case, lock, 2 mags, paperwork, these sell new for $700 (that's almost $790 out the door in BC!) This one's $639 out the door. Case is reasonably sized, so shipping within BC/Alberta will be less than $25... no more than $32 to most of the rest of Canada.
This is the latest S&W "Range & Carry Kit" M&P 40 caliber. Almost new, comes with 4 mags, holster, magazine loader, grip inserts to suit your hand size. Very few rounds - $619 - out the door :)
This Mark V Webley in 455 shows a little age on the outside but is lovely on the inside. A glistening bore and clean, tight chambers means it's a shooter! Nice trigger and tight lockup tells us it wasn't used a lot, plus the intact original bird's head grip and lanyard ring makes it a genuine collector's item. $799 out the door:)
Colt New Service in 455 Eley (and 455 Webley, easier to find) was originally British-issued during WW1. In remarkable condition, especially inside, and there is still a good percentage of original bluing visible. Grips perfect, lanyard ring intact, these guns are great shooters, and so much history! $920 out the door :)
This is a really special Custom STI Trojan. Original caliber is 40 S&W, with an extra, custom-fitted SVI Infinity barrel in 357 SIG. The SIG barrel was fitted for target shooting and is extremely accurate (typical of most bottle-neck rounds). Gives you the option of lots of different bullets/loads with potentially very low recoil,too. Includes a stainless ammo gauge for loading the 357 rounds so you get them headspaced properly, on the shoulder :) 2 magazines, factory case and extras, fiber optic front sight and adjustable rear. Lovely thin factory Rosewood grips. Barrel fitting just done by Clarence here, then the owner came down with a detached retina :(, so test fired only with the 357 barrel, under 1000 rounds on the 40 barrel (which is darned accurate as well! This is a very high class pistol, selling for around $2500 in stock form with one magazine. We added over $500 to it - will sell now for $2490 out the door.
This Springfield custom .45 was my friend's pride and joy until I introduced him to a gorgeous 7" 10mm 1911! This 45 ACP has a a coned match barrel, STI adjustable sights, (fiber optic in front), match trigger and components such as hammer, disconnector, etc. Is this trigger squeeze - can't really call it a pull - ever nice - we can make it a tad stiffer for less than expert shooters). Pachmayr grips, Custom stainless Magwell, ambi safety, a very effective Armco 5 port compensator, of course this pistol is incredibly accurate and would be a natural for the powerful Armco 45-08 round. A 200 grain SWC at 1500 makes for very effective bear medicine! Great as well for high velocity 45ACP rounds, or standard loads, even soft target loads, with a recoil spring change. This fire-breather can feel like a .32! 2 mags, more available - $990, out the door :)
This STI GP6 in 9mm is a very accurate rotary-locking barrel design that feeds straight in from the magazine. No wiggly-wobble of the barrel :) Three 10 round mags, fiber optic front sight, very few rounds - lovely trigger pull, even in double action - exposed hammer, of course...plus ambi safety - $599 - trades? And talk to me about a nice holster :)
This is a state-of-the-art 38 Super Colt IPSC race gun. The whole package needed to start - or go all the way to the top - in the Open Division. Set up for a right-hander, belt is 34-38 (hmmm - my size). The setup comes with 6 - 10 rd Shooting Star mags with base pads (and the holders), an Armco modular holster (the fastest - I stopped making them when the cost to build them far exceeded what I coud sell them for). Mounted is the popular and easy to use OKO red dot sight, a handy thumb rest...The pistol is checkered, hard chromed, wears a hi-rise beavertail, alloy trigger, extended mag. catch, S&A mag well - absolutely top rate - and it has a gorgeous trigger pull. The barrel shows at least 40,000 rounds of life left in it. Approx. 1000 pcs 38S good brass, Carbide die set... $2390 complete - or will consider selling gun only without the extras - let's talk :)
This a very special custom STI 2011 Tactical 10mm, totally built here by Clarence Weatherby, and so far only test fired. The trigger pull has to be experienced, and the whole gun got a tuning and smoothing up you can really feel! Some features: Cylinder & Slide match disconnector and sear, EGW skeletonized hammer, Wilson extended magazine release, Fiber optic front sight, special adustable, stremalined rear sight, fitted Tactical magazine well, 5 tuned 10 rd magazines with custom holder, factory case with lock and manual. Something like it, but without 4 of the $120 mags or a lot of other extras, is now available from STI for $3700 - Hmmm This one is better, and $3500 out the door...
This Pro Series M&P 9mm is unfired, comes with all paperwork, case, grip inserts, and 5 magazines. These retail now for almost $900 with only 2 of these mags - $890 out the door for this one :)
I see these Ruger 357 GP100's sell new for over $1000 - this practically-new one shows no wear, has case, paperwork, AND that nice padlock! Could easily pass for new :) With only 200 rounds of 38 Special down the tube, now $849 out the door - trades?
Norinco NP40 (CZ clone) in the powerful 40 S&W caliber is now available as a top-end kit to convert your 9mm to .40 S&W, including slide complete with barrel, 2 mags, everything needed to instantly convert your 9mm to 40... $299.. or for $350 you can have everything but the bare frame - lots of spare parts!
A nice Dan Wesson Model 15 in 357/38. All original, not new but these guns don't seem to wear out :) Acknowled to be the most accurate revolvers around, and famous for their interchangeable barrels - $590 - trades? Sold, Sylvain :)
This is a lovely Model 10 Smith & Wesson in .38 Special (New cylinder). Identical to the RCMP "pencil-barrel" 5" service revolvers. Refinished - Great bore - I had one of these for years and they're great shooters. $299 - Trades? On hold, Jason :)
A brand (never fired) new Smith & Wesson 629 Classic 5" 44 Magnum 6 shot revolver. In case, with papers etc - $990 - still held up by "bureaucracy" - Hopefully freed up soon :)
Did I say Dirty Harry? This is the one! The 6.5": Model 29-2, with wooden presentation case and cleaning equipment. Almost unfired, this one shows minor pitting from storage, and if it were me, I'd restore it :) It is/would gorgeous! Wooden grips are almost perfect, box is in great shape with a little wear showing inside. $799 - got an interesting trade? Waiting to be released from custody - see below ... And on hold - AH :)
This Uberti 45 Colt El Patron is not your average six-shooter! With a gorgeous, tuned action and trigger, just cycling this one brings back memories of hand-fitted Colts of the fifties. The sights are the squared-off type you can actually use, even with older eyes. This was a friend's, about two years old, and lightly used (Cowboy Action just wasn't his thing), he claims it's exceptionally accurate, and he is a very good shot. $679 - trades, maybe? Waiting to be released from custody - see below... And on hold - Jake :)
Here is a four-year-old Norinco 1911A1 45, that we initially tricked out for a local shooter - who really didn't get into IPSC. Tightened, smoothed and tuned, it boasts a lovely trigger, oversize IPSC sights, lovely finger-groove Pachmayr grips, two 8 round Shooting Star mags, very few rounds on this exceptionally smooth, accurate pistol - $529 - Trades considered. Waiting to be released from custody - see below...
This is an almost-new Navy Model SIG P226, the MK25 model so sought after. In 9mm, it appears to have very (for sure less than 500) rounds on it, and it's immaculate. Factory case and papers, 2 original magazines. $1350 new, this one is $1079 - trades considered...Waiting to be released from custody - see below... on hold - Rob :)
Now here! HK P2000 in 40 S&W truly as-new with factory case, grip inserts, two mags, paperwork. This is Canada-legal and feels sooo good in the hand, with a lovely trigger - $990 - trades welcome...Waiting to be released from custody - see below...
Ruger Lipseys Special flattop 45ACP/45 Colt Blachawk. A little while ago, Lipsey's in the US commissioned a series of "Flattop" Ruger Blackhawk revolvers in 45 Colt withg a spare 45ACP cylinder, and distinctive "Ivory" grips. It has the 5.5" barrel, and the new improved action that lets you load and unload instinctively :) About time! Barely fired, factory case, papers, and although it currently lists at $795 in Lipsey's US catalogue (that's over $1100 Canadian), I don't see any in stock anywhere at this time. $990 - trades? Waiting to be released from custody - see below... on hold Neil :) Oops! I had it on hold and forgot to mark it on the site - to Chris L. Sorry, Neil!
This almost-new Charter Arms Target Bulldog is a compact 5 shot 357 with a 5" barrel, very compact, great for shooters with smaller hands - decent trigger. $369 - trades? Waiting to be released from custody - see below...and on hold for Gord...

Did you know what Wild Bill Hickok carried and used? A pair of .36 caliber Navy Colts like this, except his were the octagon - barreled ones with ivory grips. This a gorgeous replica built for Navy Arms (Italian, of course), about 30 years ago and still unfired. If you've never fired one of these, you're in for a treat! The sights really aren't needed as this gun points and balances so well. $489 - trades? on hold Waiting to be released from custody - see below...

Of all the SIG-Sauer pistols, the 220 series, especially this 45ACP version, is by far my favourite! The grip shape and size is perfect (it's a single stack so that figures). Lovely trigger, and it's extremely accurate. Three factory mags - Impossible to find a full-sized SIG much under $1500 - this barely used one is $790 - trades? Sold, Jeff...
Just in -another lovely 1911 Race Gun - this one in 9mm... Built originally for a Lady IPSC Competitor in 38 Super by the top pistolsmith in the US at the time, retired in favour of a 2011 Hi-Cap pistol - (built by me) - and now refurbished with a new match 9mm barrel, and a lot other neat stuff. Still as tight and accurate as new! This gun really has all the bells and whistles, from hard chroming to fine-line checkering, a gorgeous trigger pull and my favourite sight - the PDP4 on a custom ARMCO mount with thumb rest. Flared, extended mag well, extended checkered mag button, custom cocking handle. This superlative pistol will function with factory 9mm's (boy, is that soft-shooting) or "Major 9" handloads. Six 10 rd tuned mags, mag holders, a super-fast right hand Double-Alpha holster, just add your size belt! To replicate this today you'd pay over $5000. Now $1890, including a very nice multi-gun case. sold, Gord :)
This late-model Taurus 357 Tracker is the 6.5" barreled model with integral barrel ports and the very soft in the hand ribbed grip. A joy to shoot, even with hot loads, and I'm estimating between 1500 and 2000 rounds, mostly 38 Special, down the tube. Now $549... Sold Bob Y :)
The Jericho (Baby Desert Eagle) 9mm is a heavier-built version of the famed CZ775 and many of the parts (including mags) will fit. Good sights, 2mags and an accessory rail make for a great soft-shooting accurate pistol. $490...Now sold, Kris :))

Here's a very nice Taurus 24/7 Pro in 45ACP :) 5 mags, hardly used, fiber optic sights, $399 out the door... Sold, Mark :)
This is really nice! Not very often you find a Colt New Service (dated 1916) in this condition. These were issued to the Northwest Mounted in 455 Eley Caliber and later changed out in favour of such "man-stoppers" as .38 S&W, .38 Special. Hmmm. This one will also fire the much more common 45 Colt, a lot easier to come by, and a little more powerful, too :) Modern target grips in nice condition, plus the original bakelite ones with a small chip out of the lower rear. Tight lockwork and in remarkable condition overall. $790 - trades? Sold - Robin :)
A while ago (in April 2016) our alarm system was activated while we were away - called urgently for medical reasons.
A door just adjusted by the door people was not latched properly and blown open by heavy winds. Everything showed it to be securely locked. While we were in X-Ray, we had shut off our cell phones as instructed. The alarm company couldn't reach us and called the cops. They couldn't resist, and in the process, a number of guns were seized, and some still remain in their custody. These consist of long guns, and some restricted and prohibited as well. There are still a few privately owned guns included, and I urge the owners to claim them from the RCMP.
We are dealing with the legal aspects through our solicitors and will be going to court in January-February 2018. Both Jean and I were charged with the usual - unsafe storage - which we trust will be succesfully dealt with in court
