The Oxford Gun Company is a family-run business started in 1988 by Doug & Shirley Florent, the founders and owners, who have been in the gun trade for over 40 years. Together with son David, they work hard to ensure the shooting ground is a warm and welcoming place for established and novice shots. At the heart of the business is a commitment to showing the world that shooting is a sport for everyone, in 2005 they established and have since run “The Schools Challenge” to encourage young guns (aged 12-25) into country sports.
