Little Traverse Bay, Michigan
He shakes his head. ‘We’ve lost a lot of things we moved up here for.’
I ask what he might recommend for a first-timer and he lovingly selects a double-barrelled Wheatherby with a burr-walnut stock engraved in silver to his own design and by his own hand. It’s a handsome well-crafted piece of work which would set me back two thousand dollars. But I’m a foreigner without a licence so he can’t sell it to me anyway.
He suggests that if I want some action without the capital investment I should try a gun club if I have time. I tell him I’m on my way back to Chicago and he grins broadly.
‘Well, no problem.’
