The Kevin's Collections

Thomasville, Georgia. In the heart of quail country. Think expansive plantations, mule-drawn wagons, high-tailed pointers. And in the heart of the heart is Kevin's, purveyor of fine outdoor gear and apparel for more than 30 years. In a restored 1885 saloon, the business is owned by the Kelly

From the Editor

I'm not much of an international traveler. In fact, other than a couple of jaunts to Canada in the past few years, I hadn't been beyond our fair borders since a trip to England in December 2000. That was pre-9/11, of course, and plenty has changed with airline regulations since that terrible day. Which

The Zoli-Rizzini Connection It is always with great anticipation that I open the cover of a new Shooting Sportsman. The magazine is simply the best. However, I would like to comment on Bruce Buck's shotgun review ("Zoli Z Expedition") in November/December. He states, "... Zoli once worked with the gunmaking

A New Scotch Double

It's often said that Americans are a nation of riflemen, whereas the English are a nation of shotgunners. If that's true, where does that leave the Scots? If America makes the world's finest custom deer rifles and England the world's best shotguns, then Scotland does both. Alexander Henry, more than

The Once and Future Gun

For anyone familiar with The Knights of the Round Table, the mere mention of the name Pendragon is likely to conjure up images of thrice-blessed Arthur Pendragon-noble king, mighty warrior and chivalrous husband to Queen Guinevere. Now Chris Batha, who acquired the Charles Boswell name two years ago,

Lion Country Supply Expands

John Koritko wasn't well suited to the teaching career he'd prepared for in college, so he began a modest business catering to the needs of hunting dogs and their owners. When Koritko started Lion Country Supply in 1974, the company's "collection of makeshift buildings" included a storage building

Holland's Invades Russia

Holland & Holland always has been the gunmaker of choice when a presentation piece has been needed for an American president or Indian maharaja. Dignitaries from Teddy Roosevelt to the Nawab of Bahawalpur have been recipients of Royal side-by-side shotguns. In addition, captains of industry from around

Cole Gunsmithing Revolutionizes Custom Stockmaking

Technology and entrepreneurship have been wed in dramatic fashion in a machine-shop outbuilding at Cole Custom Guns, in Harpswell, Maine- and as that marriage involves fine double guns, we wanted to have a look. Rich Cole has been at the gunmaker's bench for many years and has built a reputation as one

The Robertson Returns

In 1909 modernism was in full shout. In Chicago Frank Lloyd Wright showcased his Robie House, in Paris Diaghilev presented his "Ballet Russe" and Picasso painted his "Harlequin," and in London John Robertson, proprietor of Boss & Co., patented the first "best" gun with barrels

Teague: A 'Silver Lining' for Old Barrels, Part 1

I'll be straight with you. There's some-thing about sleeved gun barrels that freaks me out. I know, I know, a well-sleeved gun will give lifetimes of service and, these days, with TIG welding, the joint on a high-quality sleeved pair of tubes is virtually invisible. If properly struck, sleeved guns handle

In early October Bill Kulczycki, who worked for clothing maker and retailer Patagonia for 17 years, took the positions of president and CEO. He had been Patagonia's
