the rifleman's armoury
Owned and operated by Dan Potts. Dan is an ex infantry section commander, and has served in Timor, Iraq, and Afghanistan with the 5th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment.
Dan entered the Australian film industry in 2014. After working on a number of feature films and documentaries as a military advisor, Dan felt that what the industry needed was film armourers with significant real world weapons handling experience.
The Infantryman's profession is weapons handling. That kind of experience, built over years of training and operations overseas, can't be replicated in the civilian world.
In 2018, The Rifleman's Armoury was established. We deliver a professional service, by veterans who have spent years safely handling weapons in high stress environments. As well as a licensed film armourer, Dan is also a licensed firearms instructor.
