My dream: to owns a pre war Holland&Holland side by side .470 .... not that I have problems with rogue elephants destroyng the flowers on my back yard..... I just would like to have one to keep on a special cabinet to look at it and occasinaly take it out to bark.!
Had a chance to buy one 35 yrs a go, at the local gun-show, a beauty, heavily engraved, 2 sets of barrels, in the original wood case covered with rhino skin, belts and buckles closing, original tools with ivory and ebony handle, still a dozen of boxes of 20 cartridges each, plus the manuscrit pedegree of african animals taken with location and date... asking price 14.000..... I purchase a house instead. It turn out I did ok it was a better investment.!!!!
