The first Parker I owned was (traded,stupid,another story) a VH 30" #2 Frame, full & full: I got it through a mail deal, and when it came, I thought "too much drop, too heavy, choked too tight, and why did I spend my money on this old thing?" Then, I took it hunting.
First bird I shot at, was a quail crossing toward me......stoned him. Next, and immediately after, another quail going the other direction. Same result. Every time I shot that "too many things wrong" gun, I hit the damn bird. Now, I AM a real short,fat, guy; probably built a lot like fellows a hundred years ago, so that may be part of the answer. But, for the past 25 years, there has never been a day without a Parker in the gun safe, and for birds, my "go to" gun. I still have a VH #2 frame, still choked "too tight" and will probably go on to wherever old hunters go with one close by.
