Our Ranges

Welcome to Gardner’s Guns



Due to the current situation with Corona Virus we are closed as are all other non-essential businesses, however we remain hopeful that with the ongoing easing of restrictions we may be able to reopen shortly. There is no timeline on this yet, we are following the Government updates and taking advise accordingly and as soon as it is safe and reasonable to do so we will resume our daily business.

There may be additional and new restrictions in place once we are able to begin trading again, most notably the implementation of social distancing and increased hygiene, however we will make all this clear once we have the go-ahead.

Please also bear in mind that whilst our main shop and 100yd range are in England, the long distance 2km range is in the Scottish Borders and will therefore be subject to Lockdown restrictions imposed by the Scottish Government which may not fall exactly in line with England, so all that we ask is patience a little longer, keep an eye on our Facebook page where all updates are posted and we look forward to seeing you all again when we can!

Stay Safe, we would rather welcome everyone back at a later date than rush a delicate situation and maybe not have everyone come through safely.
