It’s true that this time of year when the days are short and the air is cold the inner hunter awakes in us all. Whether you are a man or a woman the increased urgency to get up early and do something this time of year is an ingrained biological clock that ticks to get prepared for the winter. They love this time of year at The Gun Room Inc. as it means more time to scratch that itch that wakes us up before the birds and gets us outside. Hunting and fishing is what we are wired for and we gleefully stock our larders with game and fish to meet the winter head on in comfort, warmth, and security knowing that our clock is correct and our families are provided for.
Getting a hunting trip in is hard in today’s modern lifestyle, let alone a p.t. session in the ever demanding times we live in. To battle the people who chip away at our precious little time most of us follow the internal clock that Mother Nature put into motion the day we were born. Stomping thru the dark on a trail in the bitter cold may seem extreme to some but to those of you afflicted the same way as us it makes perfect sense. The Gun Room Inc’s customers like to be first, they like to win, and they look towards the future at the same time as remembering the lessons of the past.
A great many of The Gun Room Inc’s customers like hunting with bows and come to them because of Shaun’s legendary Archery Department and massive bush skill. At The Gun Room Inc. they have some of the best gear on the planet for the bow hunter and archery enthusiast, not to mention Shaun will build you the “one off” that you dreamt about while counting sheep in your warm bed.
Myself, I’m a primitive hunter and (not so primitive as to use a bow) anything in my arsenal requires judicious use of black powder and big slow heavy lead. For me The Gun Room Inc. has everything I need to cast lead and work up loads for my 45-70 or .50 muzzle loader. My girlfriend is more of a modern hunter and uses wildcats that amaze me with their flat trajectories and unusual calibers. She’s a big fan of The Gun Room Inc.’s gunsmith Mark Fox because he gets the utmost accuracy out of some of the best looking rifles I’ve ever seen. Sure it aint cheap but she’s worth it if you ask her!
For those of you that caught the waterfowl bug (lucky I escaped that malady!) The Gun Room Inc. has you covered with the biggest selection of waterfowl shotguns and accessories anywhere in the greater Northwest region. When I have shotgun questions I always talk to Warren, he can paint the sky like Michelangelo when we shoot clays, and just about everyone else there can too. Nobody knows the region better for waterfowl than The Gun Room Inc., and nobody has more options for the even the worst case of duck fever then they do.
The Gun Room Inc. was founded on the principal of good guns and fine firearms over quantities of crap and plastic. Many of the guns I use today are older than myself and are highly prized by the people I shoot with, so when they ask where they can get one I always tell them the Gun Room Inc. that’s where! I don’t work for The Gun Room Inc., and I didn’t get anything to write these thoughts down out of them, this little article is aimed towards the beginner and the experienced alike who are looking for the very best money can buy. If you want to talk to me about this article or any guns that you may be looking for just flag me down. I’ll be the guy on the trail ahead of you whose headlamp you see bouncing off in the distance. My clock runs a bit fast!
