    Hi All at R and B Sporting.
    I have recently moved to Leominster so I am about 40 mins away from you. When my marriage failed way back in 2009 I sold my guns to you. I have recently remarried and I have relocated to Leominster.
    I am 63 years old but I do not wish to retire!
    I have shot just about everything most folks shoot in the UK, from .17 to .458 Winchester Mag. My favourite is 308/7.62..
    I do not have a firearms licence. However If I am successful in my job application I would seriously consider becoming a registered firearms dealer.
    Many years ago I did work for six months in a gun shop with sales and gunsmithing. It was GLA Country Sports. Proprietor Nigel Hart.
    I also have an interest in shot gun cartridge non toxic shot. I believe the English market is ready for an alternative.
    Kind regards
    Bill Ellis.

    Hello Again at R & B Sporting,
    I am wondering with all that has gone on with the successive lockdowns, and Brexit. Are there any vacancies? I wrote to you on the 17th of Feb., 2020. Alas, I was unsuccessful.
    However, I have been looking into the way the markets are changing.
    I am flexible in work, and yes I am now 65.
    I can do part time.
    So, please put me on your list, when your shop reopens to the public.
    Stay safe,
    Kind regards
    Bill Ellis.
