For totally selfish reasons (i.e., I'm one of his former customers from the U.S. who still has a an unfinished suit that was begun nearly three years ago and is languishing in England ) I, too, wish Des Merrion a speedy return to tailoring.

Fair enough, probably a wise choice.

Hobby???.........A sawn-off shotgun!?! - Can you name me a “hobby” that requires a sawn-off shotgun?

Quote:
Short-barrelled "assault shotguns" (self-loading and pump action shotguns with barrels of less than 24 inches or overall length of less than 40 inches). These are prohibited weapons requiring the Secretary of State's authority. Shotguns that are sawn off to have a barrel length of less than 30 cm or an overall length of less than 60 cm are likewise prohibited;

They were made illegal in Firearms act of 1920. Nothing to do with the last government.
