I was at sea transporting a load of gasoline, and diverting from our scheduled course (which would have been Tampa), when my copy of the Fall issue was delivered. So, it was today, being now home, that I had an opportunity to start reading it. I have learned about Dean Romig's singular experience discovering the John Elliott family 20 gauge, and just finished with the first of a number of essays on the Parker Mystique -- the piece by Mike Franzen, the originator of the new column.

Were I to put the newsletter down right now (which I won't) there is nothing I would have needed to read, view, or listen to for the rest of the evening for me to be thoroughly entertained. And, stirred as well, as the 20 gauge Elliott skeet gun article moved me to compare the engraving on my father's 1915-issue DHE 12 gauge, with the Remington-era DHE engraving depicted in the piece. Now, if I could only find out whose initials those are on the shield of Dad's DHE....

Next up for me to read are further contributions in the new column, which are sure to be engaging.

Only PGCA Members receive this publication, right?

Thank you Mike Franzen for your idea for such a column, for your riveting essay, and many thanks to the many volunteer contributors, editors and activists behind PARKER PAGES For the American Sportsman.

Yes Russ, only PGCA Members receive Parker Pages, as well as our paying advertisers each receiving a single proof copy.

And thank you for your eloquent praise for all who contributed to make this a very fine issue.

You're welcome Edgar. I would also like to again thank all of the members who took the time to put down their thoughts and helped create the article. Now get out there and show your friends and family what you did. Who knows, they may even become infected by The Parker Mystique. :-)

I thought you retired. I'm jealous.

Edgar:

For us there was no requirement for red over white over red, as we were not restricted in ability to maneuver. Just pushing a loaded barge down the East Coast, so white over white.

No, not retired yet; that would put too much of a crimp on my buying stuff I want, but don't need.

This thread keeps reminding me that i have still not gotten my PP yet.
I will have to place a call to Mr. Hall soon for a replacement.

My apologies to anyone who hasn't received their copy yet. It is and always has been a problem with the USPS delivery system. Can't wait for the postal system to be privatized!!!
