Moore Is Better
A family that hunts together, stays together—and works together in the case of William Larkin Moore & Sons. In business since 1968, father Bill and sons Dan and David have been importing guns from Europe, building reputations based on quality, trust and great customer service. When they’re not at shows or in the field, the Moores are in their shop, in Scottsdale, Arizona—selling fine sporting arms from makers such as Arrizabalaga, Chapuis, FAMARS, Piotti,
F.lli Rizzini, Lebeau-Courally, Armas Garbi and B. Rizzini.
Their racks are always full of interesting pieces, like these Lebeau-Courally 20-bores (right)—a side-by-side (top) and an over/under, both with 28" barrels and engraving by Alain Lovenberg.
Let’s look around…
This Piotti Monaco No. 1 20-bore has 29" barrels, extraordinary wood, ornamental scroll engraving, and a cameo game scene with flushing quail by Gianfranco Pedersoli.
This F.lli Rizzini R1E 12-gauge (above) has two sets of barrels (28" choked IC/M & 29" choked M/F) and extra-quality ornamental scroll engraving by Contessa Albino.
This Armas Garbi Model 103A 20-gauge has 29" barrels choked IC/M and deluxe ornamental scroll engraving.
Or what about a J.P. Sauer Model 40 12-bore fowler (right), a Stephen Grant 16-bore with 28" barrels choked IC/M and fine scroll engraving (opposite), a Hollis & Sons .450/400 Nitro Express (below) or a John Rigby .470 Nitro Express (bottom)?
Moore is definitely better.
