Thanks, I love 'em It all started when I was told I was too little for a double barrel when I was 10. I made up my mind that would change !!! The Parker 10 ga is in excellent shooting condition (for its age with proper ammo) No cracks, pits or dings --- Good bores. The Betts and Powell guns can shoot modern ammo pressures without a problem. No steel, however --- I use Kent Tungsten Matrix for waterfowl and lead for upland. .
