Ken -- this was written while I still had very limited knowledge of 
firearms. Since doing Armed America, I have learned a lot and realize now 
that no self respecting Lugger would have a Browning Citori next to their 
Leica when they could have a Purdy, a Holland &  Holland or a Parazzi. Back 
then, I thought that $4,000 must be a crazy stupid large amount of money to 
spend on a shotgun.

How little I knew!
