My real name


My real name is Lanber.  Not that you care.  Yesterday, I did a stupid vanity search for my name, and I found the logo above.

Read the company profile of the logo:

Since it was founded, more than 40 years ago, LANBER ARMAS has always been in constant evolution, studying and redesigning, day by day, new mechanisms, parts and designs to improve its different ranges of shotguns. Its central focus is on the care taken with every detail, adjusting its production processes to a perfect balance between state-of-the-art technology, accumulated experience and the skill and expertise of its master craftsmen. This philosophy has printed its unique character on the firm, the Lanber high quality style that has provided it with its exclusive internationally acknowledged prestige.

The company emerged in 1962 in Zaldibar under the name of G. Zabala y C�a, S.A., to later be renamed LANBER ARMAS, S.A. in order to gain access to the international market. In 1980 it became the leading Spanish company in the exportation of under and over shotguns. It currently exports 80% of its production and is present on the most important international markets (USA, Australia, New Zealand, etc.).

In 1982, the American Firearms Industry, in conjunction with the National Association of Federally Licensed Firearms Dealers, awarded LANBER ARMAS the prize for Product Merit for the incorporation of LANBERCHOKES interchangeable choke tubes in under and overs. In that same year, production of repeater o semi automatic shotguns began.

I'm an arms dealer now?  Hehe, funny and unexpected stuff on the net.
