Thank you for the compliments Castor. Actually there is quite a bit of history for the big bore shoulder guns being used by Sir Samuel Baker, Selous, Taylor, and a few others that wrote about 8, 4 and 2 Bores being used to hunt Dangerous Game, primarily Elephants during the late 1800's(1860-1890). Baker's 2 Bore, that he called "Baby" is probably the most well known big bore of the originals.
