Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?

Hmmm. Great idea Hugh. Maybe I'll have to start  giving a heads up when my guns will be displayed at shows.

I found some time to go check this out at the show over the weekend. Hugh was busy talking to someone else. The gun is better looking in person than in the photos for sure. Its an impressive piece. I know some people had reservations about the gun when it was discussed before, but there is no doubting the overall quality of the work and the results.
