Sorry, Charlie

So apparently KBI Inc, the entity behind Charles Daly, has gone tits up. If you were in the market for a low production, oddball pistol or shotgun that’s hard to get parts or service for, you’ll have to shop at Stoeger now. I’m personally saddened by KBI’s failure to retain the marketing rights to the […]
