Ray Williams - Owner/Manager

New Norfolk Gun shop commenced in 1999 from humble beginnings with only half a dozen firearms in the local hardware store.

In early 2010 yje business was moved into a prime retail spot in High street New Norfolk and became a full time business.

Country born and bred, Ray has always had a passion for hunting and fishing. While working for the NAB bank from 1966 to 1988 his role took him to many country towns throughout Victoria and Tasmania thus enabling him to meet new people and hunt and fish throughout these two states.

Ray has developed a close association with the local Derwent Valley Field and Game Club and has also been on committees for Hobart Gun Club, Metropolitan Gun Club and Mersey Clay Target Club in earlier years.

One of Ray’s most rewarding achievements has been to act as a mentor and coach over the past ten years to The Hutchins School Sports Shooting Team and some of the students from this program are showing great ability and this is wonderful for many reasons.

Ray was fortunate in October of 2008 when on a business trip to England to visit the famous Gunshops in London – Purdey, Holland and Holland, William Evans and Beretta. It was very interesting to experience the history and see the most expensive shotguns that money can buy. Also on this trip met up with a well known and respected coach and shotgun gun fitter Chris Batha, Not only is Chris a great bloke but an expert in his field and was a great pleasure to glean some his expert knowledge.
