    Unique is a good word, I have a respect for old pieces. I see taht and I see a legacy, but I don't need one I would rather ooo and aww over that when some else owns it.

    It is indeed a beautiful piece. He's a very lucky man.

    Beautiful, is it a shooter or just a pretty wall hanger? I would love to see something like that in the upland woods.

    That is an absolutely stunning piece! I have collected several muzzleloading doubles, but never did add a flintlock double fowler to my collection. Who made that piece?

    Judging from the looks of the frizzens and the kit in the bed of the truck, this piece gets some time off the wall! Wonderful, I wish the owner good hunting and envy his good fortune.

    Me, if it flies, it is safe. With a shotgun I am a poor wingshot.

    I say there, old chap, that is a fine looking fowling piece.
    Do you shoot flying with it?

    WOW. That's gorgeous. Truly a work of art. I find old pieces amazing... someone built that pretty much by hand.

    Truely a work of art and the fact that it gets used for it's intended purpose...priceless.

    That shotgun is one of the coolest guns I've ever seen, no doubt. The grain in that stock is amazing, and the locks are beautiful as well.

    I've looked at that picture about 6 times already, keep going back to it. I can't decide if I'd ever shoot it, it's so purdy!

    That rifle in the center is without a doubt the most beautiful thing I have seen in years. Several months ago I offered to trade a 2005 Toyota Tundra for one rifle but that rifle I would offer the truck and my wife's Camry

    Just what I needed to see before I went to bed. Hopefully this is what I will dream of all night. I don't believe in copying others work but that is a true work of art, and I have been looking for a guide or ideas to do my Pedersoli Frontier. Think this is a great piece to start from.
