With Nick's passing I lost a friend of almost 40 years. Not only was Nick a first class gunmaker he was also an avid gardener and Mason. Over the years I visited Nick's shop and home many times. Some times the visit was to discuss a gun related project but almost always afterwards a discussion on the Birmingham Gun trade would follow. In summer time we would tour Nicks garden, his floral displays were exceptional.
Nick's skill and ability will be missed by the gun collecting and hunting fraternity, but he will also be missed because of his friendly and welcoming approach to customers.
