    We are visiting London later this year and I am thinking I would like to visit at least one of the great English gun makers. Does anyone have any advice? I see that Purdey's is near where we will be staying. Is there another one I shouldn't miss?

    Are you visiting London only, or going about the country side??

    I travel to the UK at least six times per year on business - happy to help out if I can.

    here is a Google search of London gun shops

    If you will be anywhere near Birmingham on your trip,add Westley Richards to your list.They have a new ,modern plant and are quite proud to show it off.

    I think Holland & Holland would offer the best tour/experience.

    I wouldn't go to London and miss Purdey, and maybe stop by Boss, but I don't tihnk you will find them as welcoming or forthcoming with info/tours..
