It's because they have 'soul' or 'karma'. Each has its own and some are pretty similar in that regard. They seem to speak to us.

Yes, Dean, that is exactly right. They have a soul. That's a perfect descriptor. I don't know if this will make sense or sound crazy, but I have been offered two Parkers in the past that gave me an "unsettled" feeling. I don't keep those. As a matter of fact, that is the one I got rid of last week. The other was several years ago. I can't explain it, but I don't question it. Not when the rest of them give me such joy.

Thanks for the reply-

Is it just me, or are Parker collectors becoming younger and better looking?

Obviously they've always been highly intelligent with impeccable taste :)

Yes, and some of us even have good looking birds dogs.

Kerilynn maybe you could join us Sanford, NC in April for the Southern Side by Side. It is the Mecca of the double gun universe. You can buy, sell, trade, shop, shoot etc. You will see more Parker’s in one place than you will anywhere else. BTW ... that’s a nice collection you have.

Nice job Kerilynn! You've quite the collection and lots of variety. I'm all over the board when it comes to picking a favorite. My collection grew fast, as like you, each gun has unique features I like and admire. My collection is mainly vintage, or early American sxs. I try to hunt dove every weekend so I have a chance to shoot all mine. Parker is a favorite of mine also. I can't think of any one make being superior to the other. I, like you, enjoy each one for their rich historic value. I often tell my hunting buddies, " if you listen hard enough, every gun talks, and you can hear their stories from the past. Thanks for sharing your pics!

I was always of that opinion .

But I recently posted pictures of several Parker guns on a British forum and there were two SOB's on there that were neither polite or of good taste based on their comments .

I can understand a person that cares for something over another of a similar description . But I was always taught if you had nothing nice to say keep your mouth shut .

Thanks Chris! That sums up so much of how I feel about the guns. The aesthetics of the gun might not be the most desirable, but the backstory might be outstanding. Rich historical value is spot-on.
