I just saw this on The Gun Dealer's Facebook page:
"Sponsored by The Gun Dealer, Emily Dean on Team Canada went to the Australian Youth Olympic Festival 2013 and placed 11th! This 15 year old girl in 10th grade at Saint Stephen High has a wicked shot and we are proud of her!"
And so are we! I dont know how long shes been sponsored or if this is just recent news, but I just had to post it here. I shop a lot at The Gun Dealer, as do a lot of our members. They are sort of our "neighbourhood" gun store, if you will and Ross Faulkner, the owner of the store, has supported the shooting and firearms community in New Brunswick for many, many years. The recent trend is now to shop online, but we cannot underestimate the value and yes, need, of a brick and mortar store that someone like Ross provides. He is very vocal and active in firearms issues and has lobbied municipal, provincial and federal levels of governments as well as making numerous appearances in the media on behalf of us and our sport. We should support him as well. And its fun going into the store and being able to see and handle the huge selection of fantastic equipment! You cant do that online. And by the way, my understanding is that if you are a member of a gun club, like say, OUR club, you will get a discount when you purchase from Ross. Just something to think about.
