Welcome Dale & Ben
Dale is working, part time outside with Jack, he enjoys the social interaction with the Silver Willow community. He enjoys shooting Sporting Clays and is training for the World Police Fire Games in Winnipeg in 2023. When not working he loves long walks on the beach and drinking Pina Coladas in the rain.
Ben will be working part time as Josh's assistant. Ben & his wife Sandy, met Don and Gwen in 1989 when Silver Willow was newly opened. He enjoys working with his hunting dogs, bird hunting, along with fly fishing and woodworking.
I am looking forward to working with the team at Silver Willow, as I have enjoyed watching it grow and flourish over the years. My bucket list wish would be to go on a pheasant and grouse shoot in Scotland.
How To Care For Your Shotgun

Care for a firearm is an important enough topic to warrant its own chapter in the Canadian Firearms Safety Course.  There are several reasons for this – proper care and maintenance will ensure the firearm is in good condition the next time it is put to use, and it will help maintain the investment in the firearm.  Cleaning the firearm helps the owner/user retain their familiarity with the firearm, and it can reveal potential problems before they manifest themselves are big issues.
