Yes- but it was his choice of one of 2 PURDEY guns, edmundo. A Purdy is a fine paintbrush, but NOT a shotgun. Charles Cadwallader Norris, a life long bachelor, like Corey Ford, who shot birds with a 12 gauge M21, by the way- He was a professor of gynecology at Penn State, gre up in "Old Main Line" wealth-also an avid fly-fisher who loved Salmon fishing in the NE rivers--I owned, at one time, a Hardy Cascapedia Fly Reel and a Gillum 9&1/2" 3 pc.salmon rod supposedly owned and used by him.

Morris Baker, owner of RST Shotshells, now owns Burt Spiller’s Parker VH 20.

The story is that it came up for auction and nobody knew the provenance, except for maybe Morris.
