Gun builders and barrel makers have called the Flathead Valley home for decades. John Buhmiller was one of the first.
He set the bar high. Buhmiller was a colorful character who built reputable rifle barrels and with his large-caliber rifles became the de facto varmint hunter of Tanganyika, Africa, in the 1950s.
