Default Good for H&H...

As a product of an apprenticeship, I feel more of our young people should be led towards various skilled trades.

I'm glad the spirit of apprenticeship is alive and well at H&H. As well as other legendary British gunmakers. When I last visited H&H at Kensal Rise many years ago, I was especially impressed with the skills of all the young gunmakers. They are undoubtedly old hands by now. I pray that their skills and art continue to be revered by the shooting cognoscente.

Westley Richards has been talking about their apprenticeship program sine their blog got started in 2013. https://www.theexplora.com/?s=Apprentice+&submit=Search

As John stated above, the British gun trade needs to keep the skills alive.
