Guns are dangerous if in the wrong hands. but making a beautifully ornate gun is basically like unbelievably detailed artwork crossed with masterful machinery work. I love this video showing the steps it takes for a Holland & Holland shotgun to be made because it’s so cool to see all the different methods blend together.
The metal of the barrel, the wood of the handle, the art in the detail—it’s like a shotgun merges old world and new school technology in one.
