VALE ~ BILL WILSON
~ Wilson's Target Arms ~ Gosford NSW
Billy Wilson passed away earlier this year after surgery. He was a bit of an
institution among the pistol shooting community as he'd been supplying target
pistols for the last 25 plus years. Originally a career officer in NSW Police,
Bill retired to pursue various interests including being owner/manager of a
Roadhouse in northern Queensland. He has been a regular at the Hunter Valley Arms Fairs for the last five years and is very well known to most of the firearm dealers and pistol clubs.
Bill was well liked and respected and will be missed. He is survived by his wife and daughter Kathy (who will continue to operate as a firearm dealer).

SOME OF THE Exhibitors at the 20th Annual
Hunter Valley Arms Fair SEPTEMBER 2018
VALE ~ Garry Forde 1944 ~2016
~ 'Guns Downunder' ~ Mudgee NSW ~
It is with regret that we record the passing of Garry Forde on 27/12/16.
Garry had been involved with firearms for longer than most of us can remember and was
well regarded as an expert revolver gunsmith. He was one of the partners who originally started the successful Greengrass Arms Expo at Penrith and has been an exhibitor at most NSW arms fairs and many interstate arms fairs since the 1980's. Garry had been a keen supporter of the Hunter Valley Arms Fairs having attended all fairs since 1997. He will be remembered within the firearms trade for his honest straight talking, no-nonsense approach. He will be sorely missed by his associates. He was definitely one of the good guys.
DEALER NAME AND CONTACT DETAILS WILL BE ADDED HERE.
