Ed Anderson Career
Ed Anderson, a native of Syosset, Long Island, exudes an air of authority that might lead one to mistake him for a former law enforcement officer. However, Anderson’s professional domain lies within one of Madison Avenue’s most distinguished and technically unique high-end boutiques: the Beretta Gallery. As it stands today, he holds the distinction of being the sole hands-on, operational gunsmith in all of Manhattan, and the third floor of the gallery plays host to over 400 shotguns and rifles, each of which Anderson regards as his own beloved creations.
With an impressive career spanning two decades of his 45-year life journey, Anderson’s initial foray into craftsmanship revolved around the art of knife making. In the year 2000, he embarked on a new chapter by joining Beretta, a company with a historical legacy dating back to 1526, as confirmed by a documented order from the Venetian Arsenal for 185 firearms.
Who was Ed Anderson?
Leveraging his expertise in knife craftsmanship, Anderson transitioned seamlessly into the world of gunsmithing. He mastered the intricate craft of fashioning original components from raw blocks of steel, meticulously hand-fitting them to restore shotguns crafted by renowned makers such as Holland & Holland, Purdey (both hailing from Britain), and of course, Beretta. Beyond his technical prowess, Ed Anderson embodied the principles of the “ministry of availability.” His boundless kindness, infectious humor, unparalleled knowledge, and exceptional talent will leave a void that was deeply felt.
As a dedicated Master gunsmith and instructor for Beretta, stationed at the prestigious Beretta Gallery in Manhattan, he extended his assistance to all, regardless of the challenge. Anderson became an iconic figure in the world of shotguns, cherished and admired by enthusiasts far and wide. His memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing him.
