I've got a Roku box hooked to my big screen. I've watched that video a few times on my TV. I think they may have another video too. Absolutely astounding hand work to build one of those lovely guns. I was amazed that after they'd put the barrels together for a double slug gun, they tested the barrels, took measurements of the shot placements (both barrels weren't shooting to the same point of aim), then went in, heated the barrel brazing back up, and adjusted the barrels. When they retested, all the shots were hitting to POA. Amazing!

Take a look at this video about Perazzi shotguns. Also hand built and also amazing. Lots of their guns shot in the Olympics.

Could help but fight back some tears while watching this after reading trash put out by liberals on Quora. These people are amazing craftsman and the love they have for their craft is in jepordy of being stomped out by hateful elitist pigs who wouldn’t know the difference between a Holland and Holland and a

That is simply amazing. Holland & Holland is one of the most well known and respected "houses" in the custom business, and it's easy to see why. What a joy to watch... I especially enjoyed the wood working.
