Ready, aim, fire -- this was a memorable weekend for sporting gun enthusiasts

Ready, aim, fire -- this was a memorable weekend for sporting gun enthusiasts

Last weekend, Silver Creek Outfitters and world famous gun manufacturers, Beretta, joined forces to again provide a memorable event for gun sporting enthusiasts. Dozens gathered on a warm, sunny Friday to demo Beretta’s guns at the scenic Sun Valley Gun Club during what is dubbed the Legacy weekend.

During the warmer weather months, the club, located just across the street from the entrance to historic Trail Creek Cabin, invites beginners to sharp shooters to come out and try their aim at Sporting Clays, Trap and Skeet, Double Trap, Wobble Trap, Duck Tower and 5-Stand. Certified instructors are always available to help beginners get started or to provide a refresher lesson. During the Legacy demo day, things get even more fun and interesting.

Beretta shotguns are already featured at the Sun Valley Gun Club, so it only further enhances the experience when Silver Creek Outfitter’s owner, Terry Ring, arranges to have the huge Beretta trailer, with equally huge graphics, pull into the club’s parking lot. Outfitted with Beretta’s beautifully crafted range of guns, enthusiasts are welcome to try out any that look appealing. All you need to do is sign a waiver, chose your gun and take your stand at your assigned station. Locals and visitors alike stepped up to the challenge.

“The event was a huge success for new and experienced shooters,” Ring said. “Our guests were excited to demo Beretta’s range of shotguns shooting Sporting Clays, Trap and Skeet.  The Sun Valley Gun Club was the perfect venue for the event.”

The Beretta truck moved to downtown Ketchum outside Silver Creek’s flagship store on Saturday, allowing even more people to step in and enjoy the Mobile Showroom. Dealer representatives were on hand to show the full line of Beretta guns and shooting accessories.

Silver Creek Outfitters is known as one of the preeminent fly fishing shops in the country, but is also a destination for those who enjoy sporting guns, bird and duck hunting. Guns, hunting vests, boots, ammo, protective eyewear, shot and field bags and much more can all be found at the high-end outfitters located in both downtown Ketchum and at the Sun Valley Village, just in time for Upland bird and waterfowl hunting season in Idaho’s autumn.

Even if hunting is not your thing, shooting Sporting Clays, Trap and Skeet can be really fun. Just ask all the men and women who came out for the Legacy weekend.
