Default Hello, I'm a new member from central Pennsylvania...

Hello my name is Thomas. And I have 4 Parker Bros 12GA SxS that I inherited from my father... While I'm pretty knowledgable about centerfire stuff and Smith and Wesson and Colt wheel guns in particular. I know almost nothing about shotguns... My Father was an avid Clay shooter and bird hunter in the late 1960's and on through the 1970's and early 80's... I know he loved these Parkers and I hope to learn about these guns.

Yes I intend to do exactly that. Probably in a day or two when I have a chance.

Not that I know of. But I've always been told that all Meloy's are related... Name gets traced back to five brothers that emigrated to Philadelphia from northern Ireland about the year 1700 or so... LOL, you asked....
