    Ring your dealer,if still open,and get them mailed to you.

    Just buy online and have them delivered. Its ridiculously easy to do. Sportsden.ie will ship next day delivery. Others are available but I have never been disappointed with the level of service from them.

    Jaysus shooting 'cows' is quite rough;). Well its protecting your livelihood so it would be considered essential i believe.

    Gunshop.ie and outdoorsports.ie are very good as well.

    Even if you were to travel most shops, all in fact, are shut down. I've gotten emails from Sportsden, Outdoor sports, etc. saying that while the shop is closed their online services are still functioning, albeit at a slightly slower rate due to the current situation and the couriers.

    So traveling, while not advised, may also be redundant.

    I live about ten miles away from Sportsden and for the cost of delivery I couldn’t drive to Navan and pay for parking.

    Got a similar lack of response from a number of gunshops a couple of weeks ago as I am interested in buying either a semi-auto or a pump action.

    Another recommendation for Sportsden - I've ordered off them twice since the lockdown, and very happy with price and delivery time both times.
