Purdeys are indeed lovely guns- they are a classic example of the gun that is custom built for a VERY wealthy owner. Most of us will never be allowed to hold one, since they are concerned that we would drool on the gun.

They are indeed the Rolls-Royce of shotguns- since they sell for about the price of a new Rolls Royce. Want to see what they go for? HAH! Shortest verse in the bible is "Jesus wept." Here you go- click HERE http://www.gunsinternational.com/purdey-shotguns.cfm?cat_id=724

Those of us that are working stiffs are FAR more likely to be holding a shotgun made by Remington, Mossberg, Winchester, Ruger, Savage, etc. One that does not require laying out 1-2 years of pay and your first born child!

Purdey's are one of the finest shotguns ever made and are a very old name in English made shotguns. They have been around since Jesus was a boy and the money you pay for 1 of these is like making an investment in gold.

You should try and get to 1 of these "shops" for want of a better word and see what they have it'll absolutely blow your mind.

Even the rifle makers like H&R and a few others are worth a visit just to see what a master craftsman can do especially on the double rifles.
If you can afford to pay the equivalent of a new house for a double rifle or shotgun to your fit and requirements then they'll build it and while it may take a while to build it'll be like a custom made suit.

Sure the IRA have give up their firearms. Or try and get one from America that's where the IRA got a lot of theirs. But I don't think you would be allowed the type of firearms they got from America.

The IRA's main gun runner in the USA was George Harrison, an IRA veteran, resident in New York since 1938. Harrison bought guns for the IRA from a Corsican arms dealer named George de Meo, who had connections in organised crime. Joe Cahill acted as the contact between NORAID and Harrison. In 1971, the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) had already seized 700 modern weapons from the IRA, including 2 tonnes of high explosive and 157,000 rounds of ammunition, most of which were US made

I shot a round of skeet with a Purdey. It was one of the worst rounds of skeet I had every shot. It is hard to focus on the clays when you are admiring the silver work. There was so much detail in just the receiver I noticed something different each time the sun hit the gun. I had seen hand engraved guns before but nothing close to the Purdey.
