| Rakers was originally a southern distribution centre for Raker Cartridges which were produced between 1985 and 1992.|
During the foot and mouth crisis in 2001 the original business sadly failed, but was resurrected by Andrew Kyd (Sam) and has been successful ever since. The Petworth gun shop is nestled on the Surrey, Sussex, and Hampshire border so is in easy reach for most of the South East.
Our premises sprawl over 3 industrial units in which we house storage for over 800 new & used guns, 7000 items of clothing, 250,000 cartridges, 100,000 clay pigeons, 50,000 Rifle Rounds, and thousands of shooting and outdoors accessories.
We are 1 of 4 main distributors in the UK supplying Clay Pigeon Company (CPC) clay pigeons and Laporte clay pigeon shooting traps. Rakers supplies most of the major clay shooting operations in both Sussex and Surrey.
