It's now been just under a year since we have moved into our new premises, and now we've settled in we took the opportunity to invite some of the young shooters we sponsor to visit the premises last week. Behind every choke we make there is a lot of knowledge, experience and expertise which our customers benefit from, and we wanted the sponsored shooters to get an insight into this, and understand how we can help give them the edge to compete.
As an ambassador for the TEAGUE brand, top-rated shooting instructor Simon Ward also agreed to come for the day. Simon is an experienced shooter who believes in the benefits of multi-choked guns, and writes many articles for field sports magazines on issues such as gun-fit and shot patterns. Both Simon, and all of us at TEAGUE, are very keen to encourage more young shooters into the sport.
On the day we started out in the workshop showing the shooters around, showing how we measure barrels for multi-choking, and how we correct barrels which are rarely produced perfectly concentric. Through our multi-choking process we correct this to thousands of an inch, which can make a big difference when shooting 40 yards out.
Simon Ward then lead a session at our pattern plate for the shooters to see the effect and consistency our chokes have with different constrictions and distances.
Finally, after some refreshments, we finished the day shooting a few clay's over the road from the premises on the estate of our landlord, which they very kindly let us do.
Thank's to Simon Ward and all of the sponsored shooters who came, we hope you enjoyed it and learned the benefits of the work we do to support your shooting. Please get in touch if you would like to visit us here at the workshop, especially as we now have the facility to pattern test with you to find your perfect choke.
