Guns have been glamorized by rock bands, porn magazines and other I-will-not-shoot professionals. They look deadly but can be given that bit of fineness in design that can leave even the most non-violent person asking for more. If you find my talk ridiculous then make your way to Bonham’s Fine Sporting Gun Sale. It will display some finely crafted arsenal that includes notable names of a 1947 12-bore ‘Royal de Luxe’ sidelock ejector shotgun with gold inlays ($32,000 – $40,000), 1934 12-bore over-and-under shotgun by J. Woodward in an elaborate leather case ($40,000 – $50,000) and a 10-bore ‘Premiere’ single-trigger over-and-under shotgun by E.J. Churchill ($20,000 – $30,000).
You can also find a 1905 12-bore self-opening sidelock ejector gun by Purdey for $10,000 – $14,000.
