Shooting for Heroes Team Excursion

Shooting for Heroes Team Excursion

This month has been a busy one for the Shooting for Heroes team. Come rain or shine, they always get out and about to practice their sport as much as possible. This month they were lucky enough to be able to take up an offer from a gun maker to see how their shotguns are made.

On a gloriously sunny day the Shooting for Heroes team travelled north to visit Longthorne Gunmakers in Preston, Lancashire.  The Longthorne Company produce high-end traditional English shotguns. Rather uniquely, every component used in the manufacturing process being made in house by the skilled gunsmiths and craftsmen.  

The guns are a real work of art and the highlight of the day (after the breakfast) was being able to use the guns to shoot some clays. A brilliant day was had by all!
