Default Hello- New Member

I am a new member and a Parker Gun fanattic. My grandfather had probably ever Parker known to man, and at 60 I have started my own collection. I'm looking forward to be a part of this group. Does anyone know a good source to buy collectible memorbilia?

Welcome James! You have come to the right place. Keep an eye on the vintage memorabilia for sale section here. Ward’s auctions is good. The Southern SXS is also a great place as are many of the other gun shows.

Welcome! In addition to Mills' suggestion, you might also try Wards Auction. They have an on line auction coming up in August.

Pat has some good stuff, but generally doesn’t give anything away. The great grandfather of one of our friends in Savannah entertained one of the Parkers 100 years ago and Pat had a Parker envelope addressed to him. Pretty cool

Yes, I have tried to buy a few things on thier site, but its been tough to communicate with them, and some of the items that they had listed she coudnt find.

Thank you for the advice. Really appreciate it
