I tried to get it listed in the upcoming events - for some reason it didn't get put in. Even did a couple of emails trying to find out why - never got a reply. Paul

Did you put this upcoming event in the forum calendar? That way it would be in the upcoming event list at the bottom of the main forum page for everyone to know about as the event time gets near. Just click the calendar button at the top of this page and select the entry type from the "add event" box in the lower right of that page and enter the date info. I put the directions, contacts... etc. in the text box when it comes up too. That way its all there in one place.

Mark, thanks for the great pictures. I'd like to thank Joe Landry who does all the stain and painting on our shotgun fields [ also cuts the grass and cleans up ] . He really makes the place look great. Hope the weather is good - we have a lot planned for this year. Everyone, bring lots of shells - you'll need em. Paul

Okay Parker fans!

It is but two days until the biggest little SxS shoot in Lower Michigan, the annual Lower Peninsula SxS Shoot at the Lapeer County Sportsmens Club at:

1213 N. Lake George Road, Attica Michigan

Date: Saturday, 12 May
Time: on or about 09:00 until finish.

There will be some of the famous PGCA members attending to include:
- Big Friend Ten (that’s me!)
- Blade Smith
- Opening Day
- Crusty Old B**tard (COB)
- A famous Michigan Waterfowler
- Dollar Grade, another fine waterfowler!
- A well known Michigan gunsmith
- Trapshooter “Bill G” from the U.P.
- Hopefully Blind Dog
- Hopefully Paul S.
- Hopefully Paul Jr. with the famous cigar and maybe a Parker!
And many others!

Bill G may set up a display of vintage American Trap guns.

The PGCA will of course have a few Parkers on display.

There will also be FREE tables for persons to show and sell SxS’s, other vintage guns, and associated goods. I always swear beforehand that I won’t buy anything but the uniqueness of the items offered at more than fare prices is too much! I must resist, I must resist…

We hope to see many old and new faces at the Lapeer Sportsmens Club on Saturday, 12 May!!!

On Saturday, 12 May the Lapeer Michigan Sportsmen’s Club held its annual Lower Peninsula SxS Association Spring Shoot. The PGCA provided the centerpiece display with 10 Gauges from U to C Grade, AH 12, AH 12 upgrade, and a few other splendid examples of well preserved and restored Parkers. Many of those display guns were also shot during the day.
Sixty-six shooters participated between the rain showers in sporting clays, 5-stand, duck tower, and the pigeon ring. Aside from intermittent delays due to shooters dodging the rain, it seemed all were pleased with the event. Paul “Bladesmith” Harm organized the event to include a great steak dinner at day’s end.

After the shooting was over the “Parker Guys” gathered for a photos. Included from left to right are:
Destry, Paul S. Jr., Kurt Dollar Grade, Paul S. Sr., Steve (face only), Terry E., Mark Big Friend Ten, Dave L, Rich C.O.B., Bill G., Eric Opening Day, Paul Harm, Forgot his Name but he needs to buy a Parker!, Parker Bachelder, and Brad Bachelder.



Opening Day with a wonderful CSMC FE Fox 20 Gauge 30”



COB with an English gun


Dollar Grade with Brad Bachelder holding a Twist barreled Grade 1 Parker


Brad at the ready


Dollar Grade shooting Black Powder in 10 Gauge Top Action (hammer) Grade 3





Paul Sr with a vent rib Parker


Paul Jr with a Grade 1 Twist Barreled Parker


Who is that Crazy Old Bastxxd?


Paul Harm in the Top Hat and Dave D. shuttled shooter to the starting line


Dave D. in the cart with Parker B., Joe S. and Bill G.


A day in the forest…



Joe S. ready to shoot a nice Baker with Dollar Grade and COB in the foreground


The ever gracious Carol Barnes of Gunnerman Books, unknown, Jon Hosford maker of the best bore gauge set available!, and another unknown to me English Gun shooter


Paul V.


Lady Carol and her English Gentlemen


Finally, yours truly, with a new to me BFT. The BFT handle came to me because Long ago at Hidden Hollow as I was shooting a ten-pound 32" DH 10 exceptionally well on a fast "grouse-woods" course. After smashing an few fast targets this old Marine's pie-hole bellowed, "Big F---ing Ten" in reverence to my weapon. Hey, it's a Marine thing! Fortuantely before I could utter a profanity I noticed that Debby F. and Kathy R., i.e. PCGA "ladies", were present. The phrase was spoken as “Big FFF-riend Ten”! That’s how call signs and handles are made…

Yesterday I shot the event with a new-to-me 1889 DH 10 with 30" barrels, each with over .030" MBWT. This restored Parker is on a #2 Frame and weighs but 8 lbs 2 oz. I was the ninth prospective buyer to call the seller about this under-priced gem. No guts, no glory!

The sporting clays event was won with a 41 of 50. I posted high score on our 9 man squad with a 37 which is far above my average! There is something both magic and forgiving about a Short 10!
