HOLTS / GTA FUNDRAISING AUCTION
DECEMBER 2017

We are actively seeking donations of firearms or related items to be auctioned in a special section of Holts December auction – all proceeds of which will be donated directly to the GTA in full (no vendors or buyers commission will be charged). 

Holts and the Gun Trade Association have a long history of co-operation. The GTA was formed from the Armourers Association and has been protecting and promoting the civilian gun trade in the UK since 1912.
 
Holts, under the direction of its founder Nick Holt, has been sourcing, and selling, fine firearms since its inception in 1993.

The GTA has been giving guidance to Holts, as a member of the GTA, on firearms legislation and export and import procedures since Holts ran their first Auction.

Now, the two companies are coming together to undertake a fund raising exercise to address the complicated issues of where the UK will find itself when Brexit finally takes hold. 

The GTA has contacts with all the major Ministries in the UK which are involved with Brexit but, in these very uncertain and complex times, further funds are needed to continue the work that has brought successes over many years.

These funds will be used for research, and to continue with the lobbying of the Authorities, the EU and both Houses of Parliament, thus helping to assure the future for Holts, their clients and the wider gun trade.
