A Purdey Awesome Morning at Rio Piedra Plantation

The 2009 Sporting Classics Magazine named Rio Piedra Plantation “Hunting Lodge of the Year”

Northwest of Thomasville, on the banks of the Flint River, lies Rio Piedra Plantation, one of the expansive private shooting preserves that stretch across South Georgia and into North Florida. It was an ideal morning to go shooting. The air was crisp with no breeze, we were surrounded by tall pines highlighted by the lighting that’s unique to Fall, and outfitted with Purdey shooting vests and two beautiful shotguns, one of England’s finest, and another, designed in our neck of the woods.

To celebrate Purdey’s bicentennial anniversary, Kevin’s longtime friends from London Al and Chris brought two of their fabulous firearms to shoot beside two shotguns Kevin has designed here and makes in Italy.

I’ve held plenty of guns, but holding that well-balanced piece of functional art changed my perspective on the difference a well-designed gun makes. When you lift it, it effortlessly fits into your shoulder as if it was made for you. Holding these guns I felt their tradition of excellence, a part of something special. If you haven’t had the pleasure, call Kevin and ask to see his Gun Room.
