Reno, NV –-( Webley & Scott has hired Derick Cole as President to lead its USA Division.

Cole comes to Webley & Scott from Maurice Sporting Goods, a wholesale sporting goods distributor, where he served as VP Sales. Prior to that, he held various positions including General Manager and Senior Account Executive.

Cole will be responsible for the US introduction of Webley & Scott air guns and shotguns, and the associated development of the marketing strategies, pricing structures and distribution channels required to effectively introduce this historic manufacturer to the US market.

“Cole’s industry experience, customer relationship development skills, passion for the shooting sports and his enthusiasm for business challenges and team-based success will serve him well at Webley & Scott in the United States”, said David Fuller.

“His knowledge of distribution, business acumen and track record of successfully generating profitable growth will be valuable assets as well”.

Cole earned his master’s degree in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix, and holds a BS in Business Management.

Since 1790, based in Birmingham England, Webley & Scott has been famous for its revolvers and shotguns and for 100 years of air gun manufacturing. Revolvers were supplied to the British Empire’s military, particularly the British Army from 1887 through both World War I and World War II and to British Police; few colonial servants left Britain’s shores without their Webley & Scott shotgun. Today, the Webley Alecto has set a new standard for air pistol design, value and performance. The Company’s 900 Series shotgun has regained Webley & Scott’s reputation for affordable reliability and quality.

Here's an article on Webley and Scott's own webpage which details the fact that the Alecto Ultra, the Zoraki HP-01 Ultra, that they are marketing has a "relief valve" to keep it under 5.5 foot pounds of energy.

Derick Cole sir, if you deliver this pistol to the U.S. Market while advertising muzzle velocities of 5.5fps, you are asking for BIG trouble.

If you yourself cannot use google to see "who I am" as you ask in your latest email to me, then God help Webley and Scott company sir.
