OutdoorHub Reporters 01.20.12
Ed Weatherby was on the floor of the SHOT Show eager to present to viewers the items in stock at Weatherby. In the following video, he introduces the new Pump Combo Barrel Shotgun and also highlights the home protection series guns. From the company website, “All Weatherby PA-08 pump shotguns feature a ventilated top rib and brass bead front sight to aid in target acquisition. The vent rib works to dissipate heat in the barrel, promotes a smoother “swing-thru” and gives the shooter an excellent sight line for acquiring fast-moving targets. Each PA-08 gun comes with three application-specific, screw-in choke tubes.”
The history of Weatherby began in the mid-1940s when Roy Weatherby set out to change the world of firearm performance. Contrary to then-popular thinking (heavy bullets pushed at slow speeds), Roy believed that lightweight bullets traveling at super high speeds provided the best combination for one-shot kills. Based upon that philosophy, he spent the next decade developing the high-powered Weatherby Magnum cartridges for which the company is known today.
The Weatherby lineage continued in 1983 when Roy’s son, Ed Weatherby, assumed the leadership mantle of the company. Under Ed’s guidance, the company has seen growth and expansion both in Mark V and Vanguard offerings, including the new Vanguard Series 2 rifle, which features guaranteed SUB-MOA accuracy. In addition to rifles, Weatherby offers a full line of Semi-Automatic and Pump shotguns, as well as accessories, apparel and collectibles.
