At a gun show several years ago, I saw a Parker (I believe a CHE) that Lombard gave to Gable.

In addition to the 20g Skeet configured DHE he received from Joan Bennett, Gable had a 32" BHE 28g with a BTFE, a 32" BHE 20g, a CHE 20g 2 barrel set, and a VR A 1 Special he later gave to Gary Cooper

Carole gave Gable a 28g DHE SN 194,298 about 1938.

1955 "Guns Magazine" - the 20g Parker appears to have a cheekpiece

He gave Carole a 20g Smith Crown as a wedding present March 29, 1939 and in 1940 a Erich Klebe O/U.

I owned a Model 12 which was owned by one of the above actors. If he did own it he used it sparingly or some moron decided to do a complete refinish on it. More likely a Winchester rep sent it back to the factory for the refinish. There was a small group who were big intoSkeet in the 30-50s. Taught by Kerr? As I recall.

I think Kerr owned the gun club that the swells all shot at. He also had a sporting goods store in Beverly Hills. I’m sure he did a lot of business with Hollywood actors.
