J. Purdey & Sons, ever handled one?

I am a pretty casual skeet shooter. I have shot some trap. I don't hunt or bird. I shoot a Perazzi that was given to me and have a Benelli as well as some tactical shotguns. So my girlfriend comes home tonight and tells me her companies parent bought some gun company. J. Purdey and Sons. She asks "Do I want one? Because she is now entitled to 40% off the retail prices." Now if you give me 40% off a Ferrari I still can't afford it, but at least its something. Any thoughts or anecdotes or experience with Purdey guns? I would love to hear them. Probably will not be able to aqquire one for a few years, and really have no use for one, but its never stopped me before :smile: Even the Perazzi's price is going to look pretty minute in comparison I assume. I guess I will need to actually buy an issue of Double Gun Journal.

Well, I can't shoot a side by side to save my butt, but that gun, at that price would mightly tempt me to take out a 2nd on the house.

On the other hand, if that would be a side lever Boss over/under I would be a gonner.
