Pics from our 2017 Argentina Wingshooting Adventure

For the third year in a row, we have just returned from our affiliate lodge in Argentina after a productive shooting adventure which included doves, pigeons, ducks, and perdiz.

Seven of our clients/friends from as far away as Alaska spent two days in Buenos Aires experiencing the Argentine food/culture and then four days  shooting at our luxury lodge.  On the last day with her last shell, Kim Atkins of Chattanooga, Tennessee swung on the first of three ducks crossing in front of her blind and executed a rare triple!

Our shooting packages for August 2018 will be posted on our website shortly.
Reserve your slot early and join the Cole staff in Argentina next year. We take care of all the details and travel with you every step of the way!

Farewell to a brilliant craftsman and our friend, Giancarlo Pedretti

Farewell Giancarlo Pedretti

We received some very sad news about the recent passing of world renowned Master Engraver, Giancarlo Pedretti. He was a cherished friend of Cole Gunsmithing and his studio has commissioned the hand- engraved actions featured on our Cole Custom Shotguns for more than a decade. Giancarlo was born in Gardone, Italy in 1947 and passed away unexpectedly in late September of this year. Giancarlo spent his entire working life perfecting his craft, engraving for Beretta and Abbiatico and Salvinelli, Piotti, Luciano Bosis and many other of the world's finest...

Argentina Wingshooting Trip Review

Argentina Wingshooting Group

Every last thing was top notch. The accommodations were comfortable, clean and cozy-- the lodge beautiful, the staff friendly and attentive, the meals very traditional and authentic Argentinian cuisine. I am told the wine was fabulous:-) We had the chance to ride horseback, kayak the stream, and hunt doves/ ducks and perdiz in a variety of settings. The guides were terrific, especially dealing with a lady brand new to hunting. We were able to visit a variety of spots in an area loaded with mixed bag opportunities to hunt duck, doves and perdiz. I've never known (and couldn't have fathomed) the peace and beauty of sitting in a duck blind before dawn, watching the sun rise as the ducks begin their daily flight. Just spectacular! Read More >>

Gun Fitting from the Bench of Rich Cole

Gun Fitting - Shotguns

Why is gun fit important? The most successful shooters are so comfortable handling their gun that it is as if it is an extension of their body. All shooters should strive for this! This level of comfort is achieved through a combination of good instruction, practice, experience, consistency and of course, gun fit. A consistent gun mount is critical for a gun fitter to achieve accurate dimensions. This is one challenge when trying to work with new shooters...
