Over the years Bob and his wife Becky have shared many campfires with John and together the three of them have covered most of southern and eastern Africa. In the ensuing years Bob complimented his 375 H&H with a Legend 300 H&H and continued to hone his skills with these rifles. Both rifles have led to taking the Big 5 again with Johns expertise and knowledge on each and every trip.
Bob, Becky and John have just returned from Mozambique where John pulled together yet another memorable safari. From the first trip Bob immediately fell in love with Buffalo hunting and over the years has crawled through swamps, tip toed into thick jest and followed John where ever John felt the next big buffalo bull might me hiding. This trip was to be no exception. Old # 52, as Bob now refers to the 375 and the 300 have returned to the shop for a well deserved strip, clean and oil. This occurs about every third safari. The stocks and metal have taken on that unmistakeable patina that only comes with time and sweaty hands. Each dent, ding and scratch representing a memory and place. As a Rifle-Maker there is no greater satisfaction than seeing your work from the past re-enter the shop in this condition.
I tip my hat to the team.
