The Gunmakers Shoot at Gatton. Photographs by Emma.

Last Saturday whilst we were attending the Dallas show, the lads from the workshops went on a 250 bird Pheasant shoot at Gatton in Shropshire. I am sure a great time was had by all. Emma went along to record the day and here are some of her shots.

    Hope they all had a great day and that they all used WRs shotguns!

    Here in the states we call these "team building exercises..." But this is far better than any I have ever attended! Glad to see they had a nice time away from the factory.

    Good Day Emma,

    I really enjoy seeing photo's of the hunts in England. Good job with the pictures Emma, we don't have anything like that here in the States, I am aware of. Seeing these pictures just help me to put another piece of the puzzle together as to the reason that Best British guns have been such a staple in the world of Gentleman shooting for the last 150 years or so.

    At some point Emma I would like to see your picture in an action role at WR, as you are going contribute to this blog it's nice to have a face to go with your work, and who I am responding to. Have a great Day, and job well done!!!

    In Christ

    A great gesture to your team, I'm sure they appreciated it. Like Larry says, the US would call it team building, but working for a US company....they don't have a clue! Keep up the good work.

      I am afraid I cannot take the credit for this, the lads sorted it out themselves with our workers and some from other companies. I apologise if I inferred it was a gesture from us to them.

      When their clumsy young hands stop scratching blacked barrels and 'just finished' stocks they will find more money in the kitty for this sort of entertainment!!
