Adam Weatherby stood on the busy 2018 SHOT Show floor and explained that after 73 years, the historic rifle and shotgun company is pulling up its California roots and moving to a friendlier locale.

Weatherby New Headquarters Coming Soon to Sheridan, WyomingIt was an interesting announcement. Adam, grandson of founder Roy Weatherby, explained how his grandfather had headed west from Kansas to establish his rifle company in California because he was seeking better weather. Now, Weatherby’s future is in Sheridan, Wyoming, and for the Weatherby family, the skies couldn’t be brighter.

“We wanted a place where we could retain a great workforce, and where our employees could live an outdoor lifestyle,” Weatherby explained. “We wanted to move to a state where we can grow into our brand. Wyoming means new opportunities. We are not interested in maintaining; we are growing.”

The move isn’t entirely unexpected. Weatherby told those gathered for the announcement, “It was obvious being in the state that we were in that the legacy wasn’t going to be able to continue. We began to look for a new state.”
