Just when you think you pretty well know it all....when it comes to early Illinois gunmakers (after all, I am the "expert", right?), one turns up to remind me that I don't.  We had our semi-annual Prairie State Longrifle Show  a couple of weeks ago.  I bought a percussion double-barreled shotgun marked "EDWARDS, HOARD & EDWARDS - CHICAGO".  I had never previously heard of them.

I find that sort of thing happens to me from time to time too ..... I actually find it rather refreshing as it's a new learning experience.

It was exciting, yes.  Any time I'm finding something I didn't previously know about, is always a gret moment.
