Meet Valley Arms, a gun shop staffed by some seriously enthusiastic shooters

Valley Arms is based in Ruthin, North Wales, and was established in 1984 by company director, Jim Dodd – multi British Champion and international shot. We have a sizeable amount of experience within the firearms industry, including two members of staff who shot for Wales regularly in the World Championships, and others who shot at TacPro in the USA. We offer advice for the beginner, and the experienced shot, from target shooting to hunting, and we sell starter airguns through to advanced pre-charged rifles.

Staff

All three of our staff shoot. We believe that it’s important to be at the coal face when it comes to giving help and advice to the customer. Nigel has 40 years shooting experience. He is a former British Army sniper and is a very keen airgunner who shoots targets all over the UK and enjoys all kinds of hunting, for pigeons, rats, and more.

Dennis has been shooting for over 40 years, and has a wealth of knowledge of the countyside. He shoots vermin on his farm and target shoots for the Welsh national team.

Ian has shot airguns for over 30 years and can often be found plinking on his land, with his old faithful springer – a 127 Feinwerkbau Sport. Ian has also obtained a vast knowledge from shooting at Tac Pro in the United States, from .177 air rifles through to .50 rifles. Ian is very keen on his classic, old airguns and can often be found in the workshop, fettling away.

The final member of the staff is Richard who has been shooting for 20-plus years. He is a good all-round shot with airgun/rifle and shotgun and is also a very keen working-dog trainer for scurries and field trials.

All the gear, plus a wealth of ideas. Valley Arms provides the total customer experience.All the gear, plus a wealth of ideas. Valley Arms provides the total customer experience.

Products

We at Valley Arms pride ourselves in the fact that we only stock high-quality guns and accessories that won’t give us problems, so we are selective in what we sell. We want the customer to go away happy that the rifle/scope combo they have bought will never let them down, be it in the field or on the target course. Big sellers for us are Air Arms, BSA, Brocock, FX, Weihrauch, Hawke and MTC.

Services we offer:

We offer credit in both stores and give a lifetime warranty on our new airguns.

We have a 25m indoor range for airgunners’ use, where they can zero a scope, put their rifles over a chronograph, and have dive bottles filled while they wait.

Also, when you buy a combo deal from us, we will even find out the best pellet to suit your rifle and needs. We also offer a gunsmith facility for most airguns, and of course our enthusiasm comes as standard for every customer!

The on-site range facility lets you try before you buy.The on-site range facility lets you try before you buy.
