About Us

Des has been involved in the shooting sports since the age of 12. In adult life he shot competition pistol shooting for 10 yrs and became a Range Safety and Training Officer.

It was during this time, whilst in the UK, that he visited the famous gun making establishments of Purdey, Holland & Holland and Boss in London as well as Dickson & MacNaught in Edinburgh.

A day spent touring the Birmingham Proof House in company with fifth generation gun maker Graeme Greener was the highlight of the trip.

Over the years whilst shotgunning he noticed that many of the old leather cases he saw needed repairs, and accessories were not easily available, so unable to find anyone interested he decided to go it alone so what started as a hobby has evolved into Custom Guncases & Accessories.

I am extremely happy with the work you have done to restore Geoff's, CHARLES BOSWELL, Side x Side Shotgun Case. The case was in a very poor condition as it's previous owner had not looked after it. Des has had to clean the outer canvas to remove the old stains, replace the Baize lining and he has even managed to find several missing items that belong in the case, even though the case is over a hundred years old (Built in 1906).  Des has done a truly remarkable job and it even has Labels and a Name Plate again. Thank you for your care and workmanship.  Lorraine and Geoff, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. 

Wow, Des, my package turned up ! !  Unreal fast. It's what I was hoping for. Thank you for the great Customer Service .  Kurt Schreiner, Canada.


The Hellis now looks ‘at home’ thanks to you and all the other people who were involved in it’s restoration. Furthermore, I found the grandson of the original owner. He was thankful I had it re-cased in such a fine manner. Everyone who has seen the gun it it’s new home, have been most impressed, especially the finishing touches, like the brass corners, the leather for the gun parts to rest on, the oil and pin bottles, the polished cleaning rods as well as the great screwdriver set.

Everyone (even non-gun enthusiasts) sees the quality, detail and workmanship in that case. I hope you are as proud of it as I am. You have my full permission to use all or any part of this email (including my name/address etc) regarding the Hellis and the fabulous work you did on the gun case.
