    If I remember correctly he did "Shoot the Sherrif"
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    Something tells me Eric would be quite skillful at the shotgun sports.

    He probably needed the extra cash in these tough times. He should make a movie "Slowhand Luke."

    Wow, those are some gorgeous shotguns...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Im always amazed at guitar players like me who are also into guns.

    Dont forget "The Nuuuuuuuuuge"

    Those were really nice. I wonder what his "preference" is now?

    NICE shotguns, BIG $$. Looking at the descriptions, he has not had these very long. He said his gun room could only hold so many guns and he needed to "clear decks" to make room for some new guns he ordered. Would love to get a peek in that gun room of his. Fly rods and guns are his passions. How VERY COOL !!
