Krieghoff Parcours Shotgun from duPont/Krieghoff Kemble DuPont, President of DuPont/Krieghoff in Vero Beach, FL, set me up with her demo Parcours for the Gator Cup at Quail Creek Plantation this past February.  I didn’t want to haul my gun on the airplane for just 1 event so this was the perfect time to try out the gun that gave Desi Edmunds her National Sporting Clays Lady Championship in 2014 and has so many ladies bragging about it!

I am right handed but I shoot left (I switched shoulders back in 2005) as I am left-eye dominant, so ...

So needless to say I wanted to make sure I bought from someone who understood the California laws and how to transfer the gun to Cali. I also wanted someone I could trust.  August IS that ...

du PONT/KRIEGHOFF in Vero Beach, FL I can't say enough good things about Kemble du Pont and du PONT/KRIEGHOFF. 

I bought a Kreighoff K-80 Parcours from them, over the phone. Every little detail that you never thought of, she did. It didn't matter who I spoke with, if Kemble wasn't available, Champion Clays Shooter Will Fennell was there! Over-the-top service. Kemble kept me up to date, sent pictures of wood for me to select.
