Sunseeker Torquay hosted a superb simulated game clay pigeon shoot last week at the beautiful Pentillie Estate, which enjoys an enviable position alongside the River Tamar in Cornwall.

A total of 16 guns were welcomed to the beautiful manor house for bacon rolls and coffee before putting on their Sunseeker hats and heading to the first drive.

The sun shone and temperatures were well in the 20s at the fantastic day's shooting with Sunseeker Torquay, The Gun Room and St James Place Wealth Management

A full fleet of Land Rovers provided the perfect start to the day and with temperatures already in the early twenties the air conditioning was more than welcome!

The team of guns lined up for the first drive and it with hundreds of clays being launched there was no shortage of shooting! The team was made up of both novice shooters and some rather more experienced shots and with some ‘competitive’ shooting it gave for some good banter.

Sunseeker Torquay collaborated on the event with The Gun Room from Ivybridge and St James’s Place Wealth Management, alongside mutual clients from all parties. A short break for Elevenses was the perfect opportunity for everyone to catch up over an ice cold drink which was kindly provided by Luscombe Drinks, with the team gathering to discuss how well or how badly everyone had been shooting!

After 5 superb drives the guns retired to the house for a well-deserved Devon cider and some lunch where again the shooting of the day was discussed at length!

Tom Wills, Director of Sunseeker Torquay commented: “This was the first simulated day that we have organised in the South West and I am pleased to say it was a great day, the shooting was superb and the Pentillie team as always made us feel most welcome and were the perfect hosts. I look forward to the next one!”
