Looks difficult to execute it all.

Phenomenal workmanship. Don't you wonder if any of the craftspeople ever have a chance to shoot one of the guns they work on so carefully.

Most of them, or a vast majority that work in the trade could care less about guns in general. To them….it pays the bills. A lot of highly skilled gun workers approach gun making in the same way most other people approach their job or career, it puts food on the table. Very few get any enjoyment shooting their creations that we consider amazing works of functional art.

Amazing guns. I got to shoot a new one last week at the Dallas Gun Club. Loved it. I also got to see the differences in the 1879 patented Beesley opener and the 1922 Holland & Holland self-opener. It was interesting to see how H&H self-opener works so well when opening and closing the action, as compared to just when opening.

Huh? Please explain this:

"It was interesting to see how H&H self-opener works so well when opening and closing the action, as compared to just when opening."

Note the difference between Albion and America. Henry Ford paid his employees so that they could all afford to purchase his product, an automobile. That has not generally been the case in England. Traditionally, English auto workers rode bicycles or mass transit. Similarly, English gun craftsmen could never afford to engage in field sports. That is the English class system. Those Englishmen with ambitions above their appointed station headed for the colonies.
