Greetings! I'm pleased to have recently joined this forum. I own a VH 12 on a 1 1/2 frame (s/n 211511) with 30 inch barrels, choked F/F. The gun is unmolested and in great condition considering it's age. It's been handed down in my family since purchased by my Great Uncle in 1925 and will continue down to my son and his son and so on and so on.

I'm not a hunter (at least not yet) but like shooting trap with my Parker. It garners a lot of positive attention from folks at the gun club where I shoot. Recently retired, I'm soaking myself in the history of Parker shotguns and am enjoying this forum immensely. Such a great source of information!

Big D,

You nailed it. I'm a Talley from Talleyville. Went to Brandywine HS and UDEL. Dad ran Talley's garage at Foulk and Shipley. When he passed, I inherited my Parker from him.

Now that I'm retired and have time on my hands, I've gotten back into trap with this gun. Shooting at West Chester Gun Club these days but also have shot skeet at Ommelanden if you know where that is.

Don't I know it. At least my wife has an equally expensive hobby, if not more so. She has a horse.
