Update August 19, 2017
The Ruger SR9 is really finding favour with the smaller (and female) shooters as it's very ergonomically suited to smaller hands, and feels quite mild to shoot even with fairly snappy 9mm ammo.. Almost unused, with 2 mags -Now reduced to $499...
This Rock Island Armory 9mm is a 1911 epecially modified (here) for a lady shooter and features a short STI trigger and a smoooth action by Clarence as well as his usual great crisp trigger pull. Accurate and reliable, with a new fiber optic front sight, beavertail grip safety as well as ambi safety. Less than 1000 rounds on this one - $980 - trades considered. On Hold :)
This S&W 586 6" 357 belonged to my best friend and shooting partner when I was active in the pistol competitions at the Barnet range in Vancouver in the eighties. We started out there and then a year later we got into IPSC, so this revolver languished in favour of the 1911's still in favour for that. Under 1000 rounds on it, smooth and slick, this is one of the good ones! Wears an oversized custom cylinder release, drilled and tapped for a scope mount and under-barrel weight, with a lovely double and single action trigger and smooth action, this revolver is a joy to shoot. Comes with speedloaders and holster, speedloader pouch too! Now $599 - non-restricted trades preferred.
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...
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 Combat-ready SIG-Sauer 1911 is the tricked out Scorpion Model with Desert Tan colouring, full rail, night sights, a lovely trigger pull, Hogue stippled grips with built-in mag well, and a great feel to it. 2 mags, under 2000 rounds on it, very accurate and reliable as you'd expect :) $1500 new, now $1149. sold :)
And here's one of the new S&W MP9 Pro Series pistols, enhanced with a short reset Apex trigger kit and a lovely, durable Cerakote finish as well as an updated green fiber optic front sight. 4 magazines, original S&W case - barely broken in - $980, will consider trades. Sold, James :)
This vintage Ruger 44 Magnum is still tight and accurate and even still looks darn good! $690 - trades considered. sold - Bill :)
This NP34 is a Norinco clone of a Sig-Sauer P228 in 9mm and has the lovely custom grips shown plus a really nice-feeling set of Hogue grips. Case, 2 mags (BTW, all Sig parts including magazines interchange freely). Comes with case, toolkit, manual, very few rounds on this one! I have shot these a lot and find them every bit as good as the SIG at way less than half the price...$349 - trades considered... Sold, Rob :)
Here is an almost-new Smith & Wesson M&P in 9mm, complete with case, manual, 2 mags, grip inserts. Less than 500- rounds down the pipe makes it just broken in :) $499 - trades considered... Sold - Matthew :)
This 9mm STI Spartan IV is a commander-sized (as short as we're allowed in canada) pistol that uses a bull barrel instead of the regular 5" one to smooth it out. I like them! 2 mags, very few rounds -$790.. Sold, Shane :)
This .45 Norinco was expressly tuned to be a smooth, slick, accurate 1911 for a friend, and that's what it was for a few hundred rounds until he spotted and fell in love with a Beretta I had here. Oh, well, here's a barely broken-in .45 that really is special, ready for you. Match hammer and innards and a really gorgeous trigger pull :) Snugged up slide-to-frame fit, this pistol is accurate! Two mags, factory papers and case - one year warranty - $499 - trades? Sold - Russell :)
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? On hold - Robin :)
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 :)
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 $890 - trades? On hold, Matthew L :)
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 :))

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 :)
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...

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...

We look forward to a vastly improved 2017!! Most of 2016 was nasty - health issues pretty well non-stop, starting Christmas Eve 2015 in the ER. Then out of commission from late September and finally just back at it in December,with reduced hours. Lots of catching up to do :)
A while ago (in April 2016) our alarm system was activated while we were called away urgently for medical reasons.
A faulty door was blown open by heavy winds when 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.
