I don't think much can compare to a British 'best' in terms of side by side shotguns. They are works of art and just ooze quality. Some Italian guns and other country's gun can compare in this day and age, but it really boils down to the fact that they are merely copies of what the English produced in the first place, at the turn of the century, which is the focus point of this thread. Just my humble opinion, though. So, maybe Diggory was correct in his assessment, but possibly he should have sugar coated it a bit for those of us Americans who are fond of our American guns and their heritage.

Socialism is almost the worst.
