Do you have Knights of the Trigger? That's another good one by Ed.

Larry had three -- The Parker Gun (1974), The Parker Gun - Volume II (1976) and The Parker Gun (1980) that was essentially a combination of the other two.

John Davis is too modest to mention that his books on Fred Kimble are a part of the Parker shotgun history package. I'm not sure they are still available. "Shooting Flying" is still number two after "The Parker Story".

There were 500 copies each of the first and the second edition printed. Unfortunately I only have two personal copies of each edition left. I do see them for sale on the internet now and again.

Hadn't read this book in probably 10 years, enjoyed several chapters last evening. Thanks for reminding of this wonderful book.

"Shooting Flying...." is definitely in my top two gun books. Well written, nothing boring and it does encompass more than just "Old Reliable" with interesting info on those manufacturers as well.

I think we forgot "When Ducks Were Plenty". Very nostalgic.
