Russell's goal is not to sell the most guns or sell the most expensive guns but to have the world's best gun store. It's a passion t hat focuses on product, not profit. "The Gordy family has built one of the finest gun stores in the world," says Purdey and Sons chairman James Horne. "It's a stunning emporium of guns, clothing, and accessories. I have no doubt that it will become a destination for anybody who loves hunting and fishing." Outside the vault, serious hunters who aren't ready to drop six figures on a gun will find an excellent selection in the $2,500 to $10,000 range: Caesar Guerini, Beretta, Rizzini, Sako, Zoli, Sauer, and other venerable gunmakers. The team goes to great lengths to stock a massive selection of John Browning's final design, the beloved Browning Superposed. On the third floor, Purdey-trained Dustin Mount heads up a crew of five gunsmiths qualified to modify and repair the world's finest shotguns and rifles. Purdey's James Horne says, "Dustin is an exceptionally talented gunsmith. Gordy & Sons is set to be a hub of fine gun repair and maintenance for Texas and the entire Southern United States." Russell orders most of his guns a bit long so they can be cut down to fit customers. The team has try-stocks and all the other necessary tools needed to modify guns to the precise fit you'd expect from shops in London. But while you'll wait two to three years for a custom gun from a top gun- maker, Gordy & Sons gunsmiths can have your Best gun modified to your specifica- tions in a matter of days. "Americans don't want to wait," Russell says. "Unless you want custom engraving, we have what you want now." This magnificent display of the engraver's craft ranges from Texas creations to Best gunmakers and even those who craft for the Vatican.
