All that video did is make me feel bad for the poor brits who have had their firearms taken from them. It's a sad world where you basically have to be rich to enjoy the shooting sports.

But then again the Royal types have always feared guns in the hands of the common man. As my grandpa used to say GOD didn't make men EQUAL.. SAM COLT DID

Apart from the occasional glance at some intricate detail on a few guns, that would have to be one of the gayest vids ive seen in a while.


I lol'd


Holland & Holland are gentlemans guns , and while I can appreciate the craftmanship , even If I could afford one I wouldn't pull the trigger (pun intended) on a purchase. They're pretty much a status symbol for wealthy folks. I mean six figures on a rifle is a tremendous amount of money. But I guess It's all relative , I've got a rifle I paid $2300 for and my brother (who isn't a shooter) thinks that's insane.

A gentlemen's gun? What does that mean? Does that mean you properly introduce yourself before you blow a hole the size of Long Island into some poor chap's head or chest?

I've had the *distinct* pleasure of actually firing a Holland & Holland bespoke rifle. No, it wasn't mine, more's the pity, but I have fired one, and it was an experience. Beautiful to look at, well balanced, rock solid...I couldn't ask for a better rifle. My wife was giving me "the look" for a week, and giving me grief about "Ms. Holland" being the "other woman".


It's true that they're expensive...then again, given the man-hours of work it takes to produce one, the pricing isn't as unreasonable as it might appear. It's also true that, stripped to the basics, a Holland & Holland doesn't do anything that my Winchester doesn't...they both put lead downrange. That said, buying something that's more expensive because it has a greater perceived value isn't a habit restricted to the "rich". How many folks here own an iSomthing? There are cheaper music players / smartphones / tablets / computers out there, so why pay more for the iWhatever? How many of us buy brand name food, rather than generic? How many of us buy bottled water, when there's a tap right over there? Every one of us has paid, and will continue to pay, a higher price for a good or service because we perceive "our brand" to be better, and we perceive the improvement (or the status derived from ownership) to be worth the additional cost. We *all* do it...the "elite" just do it with more zeroes. Let those who can, enjoy things like H&H guns, Rolls-Royce / Bentley / Bugatti cars, and whatever else.

Yeah, I'd definitely think those H&H firearms are 'gentleman's weapons', when I see thone I think of a british lord out on a fox hunt or quail hunt, dunno if I'd wield one of those on a battlefield, unless its all I had available...

Awesome guns-but I know what you mean about the "barf" too.



they are selling the lifestyle of landed gentry to new money. any money at this point.

They're beautiful guns, works of art.

How many 870 expresses can I get for the same price? 10? 15? 20?
Practicality vs. Status, if you have the cash to blow why not...?

When the least expensive item in gun list costs more than a fairly well-appointed sedan, you aren't going to have many customers among the poor or the middle class. They're simply catering to their customer base.
