Actually, regarding shotguns, the Fox and a Stevens 20 ga. Pump (knockoff of a 37) that I bought when I was a junior in high school, are the only non-Parkers that I own. I had a Ruger Red Label 20 that I sold in order to buy my first Parker.

Great wood and case colors. That's pretty close to what the gun looked like new. Notice the absence of straw and splotchy colors, usually a dead give away that a gun has been recase colored. Congratulations Craig!

I noticed it and that is a hell of a first 20 bore. That is one great gun. Just out of curiosity, what loads were you using Craig? How is the gun bored?

You're stepping out onto a slippery slope, Craig. One begets another, and on it goes.
