    And I thought the Churchill shotgun I saw at a LGS was expensive at $45,000.

    A bolt handle shaped like an elephant’s trunk, now that is truly unique. That would be a nice museum piece but it is just too good looking to risk a scratch just to try it out at the range.

    The owner of those Parkers was the late Bob Peterson of the Peterson Publications, who brought us (for better or worse) Hot Rod and Guns & Ammo magazines.

    Since the Parker brothers fully intended for their sporting arms to be used and enjoyed, I can only hope that Bob Peterson swung them on many a bird. It would be a shame if those magnificent guns and the workmanship that went into them were never appreciated in the field.

    I am really enjoying the history of the shooting sports. So many ins and outs to who made what and what was made. All sorts of info for this n00b. I also enjoy the art/craftsmanship that goes into all, but in particular, those early pieces of art that we call firearms. Stunning.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Made by PArker Brothers... Does it come with a pair of dice to help you decide what to shoot?

    Parkers can be had for a decent price. Although some would consider them "Worn Out" they probably are not. They just look that way. It is very difficult to wear out a Parker as they were designed for strength and longevity. There were many "grades" of Parkers over the years. The type of steel used in the barrels was the basis for what grade the shotgun was going to end up being. Depending on the year of production, lower grade guns had basic English "twist" steel, whereas some the higher grades had what was called "6 blade Damascus" steel", Whitworth "fluid" steel was used on the very finest grades, for the later models. Damascus barrels were the most desired by sportsmen, back then, because of their strength and lighter weight.

    A good friend and fellow skeet shooter, has a later model Parker. It is about a 30% base model gun. It does have damascus barrels. We have fired many, very light, target loads through the gun with no signs of wear, other than our shoulders. Consensus from the experts says that modern higher pressure ammo should not be used due to the brittleness of the steels used in the barrels.

    Know as "Old Reliable", the Parker was one tough shotgun. Parker was considered the best double shotgun ever produced in the United States. Some scatter gun enthusiasts still consider it the best ever produced in the United States. The Parkers dependability rates up there with the Winchester Model 12 pump. They were both made to last a lifetime.
    A wise man once said: "Bugout bag?..What's that? Is that all the junk you sidewalk commandos plan on humping when the SHTF...I'll grab a Nylon 66, a box of 22s and a poncho liner and in less than a week I will have all of your stuff and everything else that I need for the duration."
