Ken, can you show us the Skeeter page? We missed you at Baltimore. Maybe next year.

Bill, there is no SKEET-ER in Iver Johnson Catalogue A-29. The doubles in A-29 were the HERCULES and the SUPERTRAP. Likewise not in the undated catalogue considered to be 1931-2. From a later SKEET-ER folder it shows Dr. Robert G. Vance won the .410-bore events with a SKEET-ER at the 1933 Great Eastern.

I think the SKEET-ER first came out in 1933.

Bill, I really miss seeing everyone at the shows too! Dave is spot on. I think this is an insert from the 1936 catalog.

Kenneth C. Miller ran the first 100 straight in NSSA .410 competition around 1936, reputedly with a Skeeter. I think his Parker .410 was built later. My Skeeter .410 is a 30" gun with Miller trigger. I would like to know where another 30" .410 is. In yesterday's skeet event at our club, there were 2 .410 Skeeters in attendance. Mr. McCormack shot a nice little 20 gauge Fox. Maybe I'll try my Iver Johnson Super Trap in the Chinese skeet event.
