Brilliant name change but must have cost a fortune to convert from pub to gun shop.Took forever.

Before I had read the caption I thought ..what a lovely pub!
I agree Alan H....must have cost a fortune....is there such a big calling for a gunsmiths??(scary!)

Jean F, when the shop was on High Street it was between Nat west and Midland Banks, very handy for a hold up.The web site states that he has 1000 guns in stock so there must be a demand for guns, cartridges etc. and he sells fireworks as well.
