Let me tell a little bit about the store Trgovina Lovec Grosuplje before we start to talk about the flashlights. They started their work long ago, in 1990. In all these years they have recently specialized in the field of hunting and sport shooting TRAP and KOMPAK. In 2015, however, due to the high demand for short-range and AR long-range firearms, their knowledge was expanded to include sports shooters of this type. Today you can find absolutely everything about sports shooting and hunting. They focus on the sale of all types of rifles and pistols, ammunition, binoculars, mounts and cleaning supplies. Chemical fencing to discourage game, all kinds of targets and clothing from well-known brands and footwear.
