The Gun Store Cy
The Gun Store Cy is the webstore of Nicos Th. Kokkinos & Son dealing exclusively with Denix products.
Nicos Th. Kokkinos & Son has been the autorised dealer of Denix products in Cyprus since 1999.
During the trouble year of 1940, the young and optimistic Nicos Kokkinos started his own business in one of the busiest commercial streets in Cyprus, Ermou street in Nicosia, the capital of the island.
At first, Nicos only traded kitchenware since that was what the market demanded at that time, but with World War II coming to an end, he expanded his product range to also include toys and gifts.
In 1963, the business became a partnership to include Nicos’ son, George Kokkinos, and so Nicos Th. Kokkinos & Son was born.
In 1973, just a few months before the Turkish invasion on the island, the store is renovated and stocked with all-things-best in the market at the time. This new era didn’t last long.
In July of 1974 Turkey invades Cyprus. The invading army loots and burns everything on its path. The end of the war left the island divided in two and Nicos’ store was unfortunately on the ‘wrong’ side.
Nicos does not give up. With the help of his son George, he recoups and opens a new store just a few hundred meters away from the original store.
Nicos Th. Kokkinos died in 1982, but his name and legacy lives on and stands strong in time.

Do you know who Denix was?
This name comes from one of the three war gods in the Japanese mythology. Deducing from the place it comes, it seems that it must be the same as Amida, the greatest god of the Japanese Olympus.
