Default Greetings from Charlottesville VA

Hello all, greetings from Charlottesville VA. I joined a few weeks back and Iím just finding time to introduce myself. Love old doubles (both American & British). I picked up a Parker Trojan 16ga about a month and a half ago and Iíve been shooting sporting clays with it almost every Sunday since. Great way to finish up a weekend! Looking forward to learning more about Parkers and maybe acquiring one or two more.

Very nice original appearing Trojan 16. I have 5 Parker 16's but no Trojans. They are solid guns, enjoy it.

Iím about 25-30 miles from Cíville . Used to be a member at Rivanna a number of years ago now just Piedmont and I shoot at Central VA semi regularly . Think Iíve got seven Parker 16ís at the moment . Two hammer guns and the rest are V grade with the exception of one D grade .

Seven 16's. Your cup runneth over. Every day I learn more and more abouts the depths of this "Parker Thing" I seem to have been inflicted with.

Alas, I only have three, but they all get attention! If your not careful, the affliction will become the Long Parker version, with symptoms lasting decades!

If you have a nice 16, you don't need another gun. BUT, that's no fun, so get some more.

Enjoy your nice Parker!

I only have 2 16's. An LC Smith Field Grade that was given to me around 1980 when I was in my early 20's and it became my go to gun and a Fox Sterlingwerth I bought a few years ago that is a wonderful gun. I'm looking for a Parker now.
