A few times I've see the words 'master' and 'gunsmith' come together, but only when it comes to colleges wanting to sell classes for a good deal of money. I can understand a master gunsmith in the very old fashion guild terms, like how a painter may be called one after his guild elected him to the position of master. But in the modern day we don't have such things. But in your own definition - what is a master gunsmith? What can he do, or what does he do? To me, it is arbitrary, as a persons skill with any one particular task is bound to wain and wax as time passes by. If ever there was a master gunsmith, maybe John Browning was one. He didn't make pretty things, but he made a mark on the world as we know it today. what do you say?
