I might get a Purdey if the right one comes along. I am officially not searching for any guns right now, but that could change

Dave, just returned home from Maine and looked it up. I had my quote wrong. TR said “There is no better gun made.” in regards to the gun that AHF made for him. Ansley himself used the “Finest gun in world” tag. He was good at marketing, give him credit for that!
