Perfect Gun

The Perfect Gun is our platform to vent, review, educate and inform. We have an opinion and love nothing more than to share it, we'll also invite some friends and colleagues to contribute from time to time. The blog is named 'Perfect Gun' which in itself is objective and derived from a Horton advertising campaign at the turn of the last century. In this blog we'll give our opinion on a variety of topics related to the guns and the sport they are used for. From explaining the idiosyncrasies and terminology used in the trade, reviewing some of the guns we retail, repair and manufacture to comical stories from the trade and field. We hope you enjoy the content, feel free to leave comments.
