Silvio Calabi

Silvio Calabi has served as the editor in chief of both Shooting Sportsman and Fly Rod & Reel magazines.  He has also written extensively on fine guns and shooting, hunting, fly-fishing, and sporting travel.  While we could easily build a podcast around most of his writing - one piece in particular really stands out to me.  Silvio co-authored the book, “Hemingway’s Guns” in 2010.  This book takes a detailed look at many of the rifles, shotguns, and pistols that Ernest Hemingway is known to have owned throughout his life.  While much of Hemingway’s life was complex and contradictory - his affinity for hunting and appreciation of the guns used was constant throughout his life.
