Welcome to ARMCO GUNS
Update January 13, 2018
Well, I'm finally sorta mobile again (able to get to the the computer, at least) after an infection that had me totally out of it since Christmas. Ambulance to Emergency, the works - for a long time I felt like I was circling the drain :) On the mend now, but still very weak, and although I have a lot to do, I do have to realize I have limitations, and getting stronger is my first priority. Obviously, the usual saturday and wednesday open times are suspended until further notice.
It has been tough on Jean, especially, and although very frustrating for me, it has been doubly so for her. Better times are ahead!
A while ago (in April 2016) our alarm system was activated while we were away - called urgently for medical reasons.
A door just adjusted by the door people was not latched properly and blown open by heavy winds. Everything showed it to be securely locked. While we were in X-Ray, we had shut off our cell phones as instructed. The alarm company couldn't reach us and called the cops. They couldn't resist, and in the process, a number of guns were seized, and some still remain in their custody. These consist of long guns, and some restricted and prohibited as well. There are still a few privately owned guns included, and I urge the owners to claim them from the RCMP.
We are dealing with the legal aspects through our solicitors and will be going to court in January-February 2018 (now re-scheduled for 5 days from April 16, 2018) Both Jean and I were charged with the usual - unsafe storage - which we trust will be succesfully dealt with in court.
Hours of Operation - Armco's revised drop-in/visiting hours are working well! Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3 gives us those times to visit, and talk. It has turned out to be a highlight of our week. As before if you're traveling from out of town we can make other arrangements :)
