Welcome to Florida, where you can get the South’s best sausages and custom guns.

So say the publishers of Garden & Gun (who would know better?) in their South’s Top Shops list.

The best sausages, they say, can be found at Proper Sausages in Miami, where a married couple set out to recreate proper British sausages and became one of the widest providers of sausages in the area. They even ship them overnight.

From sausages to guns, Garden & Gun say Cole Fine Guns and Gunsmithing in Naples is the place to go for custom-adorned firearms and firearm repairs.
