My Parker Bros 16 Ga shotgun

This is my Parker Brothers 16 Ga shotgun. To be honest I have never heard of it until My father in-law past and I got it. It seams to be in good shape and I was told he used it up until the early 90's when he stopped hunting.

This is the first 16 gauge I have ever owned. I have had it for 2 years and it has just sat in my safe with my other safe queens.

From the pictures I've seen my father in-law has put down quite a few pheasants with this shotgun. My dad and I used to hunt pheasants when I was young but hardly ever see one when I go to the farm. It is a shame that it is retired to the safe for now.

You would think that Illinois would have a few pheasants,? I know there are not as many
in Utah that there was when I hunted with my Dad in the 1950s...and 60s.
