Default Dale from Central New York (state, not city)

Greetings!

I figured I would drop a line and see what bites.

I live in Central NY, and looking to see if there are any shooters in the area.

I am going for the Grand Slam of American shotguns. I've been fortunate to know some Ithaca employees over the years and had/have some nice IG pieces, singles, doubles, pumps, & handguns.

I recently bought my first Parker (VH, 12 ga, mfd in 1902).

I shoot some Continental shotguns from Italy, Spain, Belgium, but do look forward to adding at least 1 LC, and some more Parkers to the collection.

Look forward to hearing from folks close to Cortland!

Cheers!

Dale

Thanks for the reply Brian. Whereabouts is your family land down here? My cousin is a police officer in Greece and I have other relatives out that way, and I'm originally from Buffalo.

I do some rifle shooting down near Wayland too.

We have about 115 acres at the Cortland/ Onondaga county line just a bit north of Homer. Beautiful area.

Hi Dale. I'm in the Binghamton area. I love how you qualified what part of NY you're from. Only we upstate folks understand....

I shoot rifle sports down at Broome County Sportsmans Club and just shot today out near Sidney. Nice to hear some others are stranded here in NY.

I used to travel around the world, and learned to qualify that I was from the state, not the city, when people assumed I lived in Manhattan ��*♂️

Hi, Iím up In Oswego. Welcome. If you want to shoot some sporting clays or skeet with Parkers feel free to reach out. You should join us at Hausmanís the first weekend in June for some fun and education on all things double gun. Itís a great time.
