CORPORATE DAYS AT WMS

DSC_5008We recently hosted a number of highly successful Corporate Days at WMS where guests were able to shoot at ranges from 80-835 metres under Andrew’s expert instruction.

Alexandra Baur, Head of PR for Blaser in Germany, brought over some German hunting clients and the editors-in-chief of Jagd & Hund and St Hubertus magazines, the biggest hunting magazines in Germany and Austria respectively.

On another trip Blaser Sporting UK CEO Robert Sajitz brought along some of his dealers to show them just what the Blaser R8 Professional and Professional Success could do in real field conditions; we were all impressed with the superb 6.5×55 calibre which put in some extremely accurate small group shots at 1km; smiles all round!

Optics manufacturers Leica and MINOX also invited guests to corporate days at WMS to showcase their binoculars, riflescopes and spotting scopes. Each company invited company staff from Germany and UK, dealers, and editors and journalists from magazines such as Shooting Gazette, Sporting Gun, Sporting Shooter, Shooting Sports and Gun Mart.

From our perspective we were enormously impressed by the range of optics on show particularly the new MINOX ZP tactical scopes which really proved their worth on our own Steelcore Cyclone .308 and PGW Timberwolf .338LM shot to 835m, or 900 yards.

DSC_5251 (1)We hope to have some of these on the WMS equipment line up very soon. We were also rather taken with the range of Sauer rifles, especially the new Sauer 404, provided for the day by Garlands. Check out the video to find out more about it!

“Thank you for hosting a simply splendid day yesterday. I am extremely impressed by your facility and by the way you conducted the day from start to finish; for me you hit the ‘sweet-spot’ in terms of balancing a safe, fun, instructional and pleasant environment. I could not have asked for more.”
IAN SPICER, MARKETING DIRECTOR, MINOX GB

And as if coming to Wales to shoot isn’t enough, our recommended hotel for clients, Y Talbot in Tregaron, has been named CAMRA West Wales Pub of the Year 2015 and is on a shortlist of three for the Wales Pub of the Year title to be judged in July.

This comes on top of Y Talbot featuring in the New York Times list of 10 hotels in Europe that make you feel at home.

Cheers or Lechyd da as we say in Wales!

Thank you for reading and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Best wishes and Happy Shooting!
