Daniele Perazzi (1932-2012)

Daniele Perazzi, founder of the Italian competition-shotgun company that bears his name, died November 7 at the age of 80. Born in 1932, Perazzi began a gunmaking apprenticeship when he was 14. He went on to build a company that is synonymous with top competition shotguns that carved its niche in the world market through innovation and modern design and manufacturing methods.
