Looks like they had good taste in dogs as well!

Gable, his Parker, and Jimmy Robinson
Robinson published an article in Sports Afield in 1939 "A Duck Hunt With Clark Gable", which was included in his 40 Years of Hunting published in 1947

The vent rib A1 Special he bought from Cliff Baldwin has a beavertail in every picture I've seen and according to Jimmy's caption of the photo says 1938, though Xmas 1940 is written on the lower right corner of the photo. Oldsters leaving us many things to ponder.

A couple years ago I had an opportunity to shoot Clark’s BHE 28 at Sporting Clays. It was a real pleasure and balanced beautifully. My first target was a clay rabbit which I pulverized..... and one I usually have a problem hitting! Josh and I were shooting clays together. He “loaned” me the gun for the afternoon. I would have loved to have owned the gun but it was well out of my budget!
