Default New proud owner/VH 16ga

Hello, I live in Saraland, AL but originally from Perry Ga. Iím a lifelong bird hunter and ha e always preferred the classic guns. I have an LC Smith field grade 16 that Iíve hunted with since I was 14 yrs old. Iíve always wanted a Parker shotgun but could never find one I could afford. Well Iím older and better off so I treated myself to my first Parker and Iím in love! Shoulders and swings like a dream!

Hey Wesley, I replied to this last night but I guess the gremlins ate it. Anyway, I was hoping you could post some pics of your gun and give us some more details about it. I hunt birds with a 16 ga VH and love the gun.

Hi, I am a new forum user and I too just bought a 16 VH Monday. It was made in 1901 and on a 0 frame. It is light but all I have is 12 & 20 gauge guns and probably will never shoot it.

Victor if you shoot the 16 you'll fall in love with it. It's on a 20ga frame and it will hit like a 12 but carry like a 20. A 16ga O frame is a very nice gun, enjoy it.

Wesley congrats on your first Parker as well and to start off with a 16 is even better. Enjoy them, care for them and pass them along to the next caretakers when it's time.

I have a bunch of 16 ga. Parker’s on the 0-frame and one or two on the 1-frame. Most of mine are hammer guns but a few are hammerless. They are wonderful shooters. Yours is too I’m sure.

I got to shoot it Saturday at the Northern SXS. Morris Baker gave me some RST 3/4oz
shells to try. I was impressed with the gun, the shells and myself. I was not in the competition just trying the gun out.

Good afternoon Gentlemen. Keith Doty from Houston. Long time bird hunter and CCA member. I'm new to the Parker habit but a long addicted Winchester 21 guy. Acquired a VH 16 not long ago, 1930/splinter/single trigger on a #1. Impressed me, what a nice shotgun. Liked it so much I bought a GH, also a 16. I look forward to befitting from those obviously more knowledgeable than I!
