This is terribly sad to hear. I had hoped to visit him at the factory someday. He lived his dream and building the Perazzi company is qutie an accomplishment.

It would be impossible to describe the magnitude of his success in a field where even the most established go belly up. A near unique accomplishment.

A sad day for all, certainly. RIP Daniele Perazzi. I have never regretted a Perazzi gun and could be perfectly happy if I had nothing else.

We were expecting this bad news since about a year ago, since his health was deteriorating and became weaker by the day. I remember the last time I set next to him, I can barely hear his voice when he handed over a Perazzi pen to me, I can see the old man's eyes with dimming light. It was that moment I realize I might never see him again. 20 years of knowing him finally comes to an end. I'm sad. Very sad.

He sat next to a friend & I on the trolley at the Grand once. My friend was holding his Perazzi single. Daniele asked him what he thought of the gun. When my friend told him he felt it was the best gun he ever owned, Daniele introduced himself and gave him a four box shell carrier he was carrying in gratitude. John Browning move over, you have competition.

I began shooting a Perazzi shotgun in 1999 and I have never looked back. I shot for Perazzi for several years, and I finally got to meet Mr. Perazzi in 2007 during a trip to the factory. It is a moment in my shooting career that I will never forget.

It is a sad day indeed.

The man, the myth, the legend....Daniele Perazzi rest in peace.

Years ago at the Grand in Ohio I walked into the Perazzi building and a shooter was having some difficulty explaining exactly what he wanted done when talking to one of the gunsmiths. I introduced myself, and translated in Italian what the man wanted.

Mr. Perazzi walked over and started speaking to me in Italian and we had a good conversation as he appreciated that I could speak his language. He invited me to someday come to his factory, but I was never able to make it.

He asked me what I liked about his guns as I told him the triggers, the barrels, wood to metal fit, the balance, simply everything, as he smiled.

Sorry to hear this sad news.

I am so sorry to hear the news.

I remember seeing Daniele walking down the trap line and nodding politely to shooters. I also remember seeing him walk the factory floor in Brescia when I was there in 1997.

My best wishes go to the family and Company.
