Default "Old Reliable" Performance in 1905

http://library.la84.org/SportsLibrar.../SL4516022.pdf

At Trinidad Colo., on June 15, Mr. F. W. Caldwell, shooting a 16 gauge Parker gun, made a score of 72 out of a possible 75, making a straight score of three twenty-fours out of a possible twenty-five. This is a wonderful performance with a 16 gauge gun, and a short time previous Mr. Caldwell broke 48 out of 50 with his 16 gauge Parker.
At London Ont, Mr. Harry Marlott, with the Parker gun, on June 8, at 17 and 21 yards rise, scored 162 out of a possible 175, winning high average.
Mr. S. C. Yocum, of Shamokin, Pa., at the Shamokin Gun Club, broke 47 out of 50 and 95 out of 100. Mr. Yocum is strictly an amateur and is a staunch supporter of his old reliable Parker.
At the Ohio State tournament, Canton, O., D. A. Upson, shooting a Parker gun, won first general average for the three days, with 476 out of a possible 500.
F. H. Snow, shooting a Parker gun also, was second with 474 out of 500.
Frank D. Alkire, made the longest continuous run during the tournament of ten days, with high amateur average for the third day, losing 8 only out of 235.
R. S. Rhoades, with a Parker gun, won high amateur average the second day, losing only 5 birds out of 160.
The old reliable Parker was much in evidence, and such records as above prove absolutely that the Parker is the winner of the age.
