    John Applebys Gunshop

    John passed away a number of years ago and I understand that his wife was selling what was left in the gunshop.
    I believe it was in Port Royal and he was a dealer in BSA Martinis.
    Is that gunshop still in business? and does the shop still deal in Martinis?
    Thanks for any info!

    After a little thought, I remembered that it was John Appletons shop (not Applebys)

    Think it was John Appelton or something near to that. Last I heard they were only open on saturdays. Was supposed to have a good stock of both the smaller BSA 22rf martinis and some of the international series of 22rf target rifles. Think the name was "The Gun Shop" on Port Royal Va. Probably would have to either use google or a local business directory for a definite location, phone number and business hours. Got a nice buttstock from him when he was still alive. Hope some of what I posted helps. Mostly from memory. Frank

    Has anyone been to Appletons shop recently?
    I was wondering what the shops Martini inventory is? Just junk? Just parts? Or do they still have complete rifles?
