Having bought a few "trinkets" from Purdey and Company in Mayfair, I find the UK's gun laws interesting. At the lnk below you can see the wares at Purdey's. A low-end 12 "bore" as they call it will set you back more than $6,000. A more usual side by side in a rosewood case, sized to you, nicely engraved and joy of joys with your "arms" on a brass plate will set you back more than $20,000.
The pictures in the catalogs linked are fun. I like the one of the dog in his canopied, velvet curtained bed. Good for the British. Their laws keep firearms out of the hands of the riff-raff.
I'll be at the National Gun Show at Dulles this weekend along woth a few thousand other riff-raff. pl
