About Us


The company behind Fisher & Smiths


York Guns was started in 1980 by John Smith, who is still very much involved in the day to day running of the company. John’s vast experience of knowledge and passion for the business has ensured that York Guns has gone from strength to strength over the years. After nearly 20 years in King Street, a thriving business and a shop crammed full of stock, it became clear that they needed to expand.

With huge industry changes and the growth of their online business, York Guns needed to expand their offering to customers, whilst still retaining the values and core products that made them known.

Fisher & Smiths is here to bring you the very best in outdoor lifestyle apparel & goods, complementing perfectly the York Guns site which is proudly dedicated to sharing a fantastic selection of shooting supplies and sporting goods.
