ROSS LANDSBOROUGH – OWNER
Ross started Landsborough Auctions in November 1970, and has spent the last 48 years selling every imaginable type of auction sale from firearms and real estate to specialty and car auctions. An avid hunter that enjoys shooting alongside his sons, Dave and Gary, Ross now hosts four firearm auctions a year in addition to smaller, monthly auctions held online.
Triggers and Bow is a product of these firearm auctions and the ranges were built to better serve our customers and give them a clean, comfortable place to enjoy firearms and archery sports.
Although Ross says he semi-retired, there isn’t a day that goes by where he isn’t in the store for some period of time.
DAVID LANDSBOROUGH – OWNER
An avid gun enthusiast, Dave likes to hunt and shoot skeet. Even after the thousands of guns that have come and gone throughout out auctions over the years, he still gets excited when something rare or old comes in. Raising his sons, Matthew and Andrew, to enjoy the outdoors and shooting sports, Dave continues to express his dedication about safety and wildlife preservation in everything he does.
JULIE LANDSBOROUGH – OWNER
Julie’s background in business is banking, therefore the bookkeeping seemed to come her way right from the start in 1968. Julie was raised in a very British home where guns were not allowed. During the early years of the business, Julie took the required courses and tucked away the unsettling feeling that came with her upbringing. Julie now enjoys shooting her handguns on the range and has had two successful hunts in Africa. One of her favorite conversations is with folks who have a fear of firearms, as she once did, and then helping them to learn the sport and become comfortable on the range.
GARY LANDSBOROUGH – OWNER
Gary is an avid hunter and target shooter, probably spending more time than most shooting. Teaching his son, Dylan, about gun safety at an early age, both Gary and Dylan are as devoted to safety and wildlife preservation as Dave, Matt and Andrew. When he’s not shooting, Gary loves to inspect the incoming guns for the auctions.
ANDREW LANDSBOROUGH – ARCHERY ASSOCIATE
Keeping with the family tradition, Andrew enjoys firearms and archery. In fact, he could often be seen behind the archery counter over the past several years and coaching the “Intro to Archery” course to kids on the range. He is currently attending college in Toronto. Although studying takes up a lot of his time, he can still be found working with the kids throughout the summer and helping out behind the gun and archery counters.
