Remember that time when I brought my shotgun to Kennedy airport and got treated like the Pope? And then remember how Jet Blue decided not to put it on the plane? Well they did eventually and were very apologetic and gave me vouchers and here I am. With my new best friend.
This one is from my friend Craig Johnson in Fredricksberg, Virginia. He gives me gun advice from time to time. He also works for Fausti, an Italian shotgun maker that makes guns on a very artisan level.
Do you want to know the coolest thing about Fausti though? It’s run by three women: Barbara, Giovanna, and Elena, the daughters of Stefano Fausti. They are from the same region of Italy that my family is from.
Let’s take her clothes off, shall we?
That is Turkish walnut.
And chokes. For all of my upland shooting needs.
If you want to know more about the Fausti sisters, you can watch a two part video James Marchington did about them and the craftsmen that work there. That’s what got me hooked. I’m always keen on learning about badass women… Part 1, Part 2.
