"Tap" Tapply shot a Model 21 20ga. Burt Spiller gave his Parker VH 20 to Bill Tapply, Tap's son. Morris Baker acquired it after Bill Tapply passed away.

Steve Grooms shot an Ithaca SKB Model 600 OU 12ga he called "Cacklestopper". He contacted me several years ago, after he was no longer hunting, about putting Cacklestopper on the market along with autographed copies of his two pheasant hunting books.

Michael McIntosh shot a Wilkes 12ga. He also had an AyA 12ga made with the same specs as his Wilkes. The AyA was his "travel gun".

Nash Buckingham ordered his Parker with no safety. When a person knows how guns function they know the safety is not a safety.

Nash owned some Parkers, but I don't recall him ordering any.

Jack O'Connor had a short barreled custom Model 21 twenty gauge. He ordered it to hit center of pattern 1 foot high at 40 yards. His theory was that rising birds would fly into the pattern and mitigate any lack of follow through. I think he was on to something personally.

Larry Brown owned too many guns to remember and a whole bunch to be named later.

I'd better chuck in some from the other side of the big pond: Denys Watkins-Pitchford who wrote under the name BB after his favorite shot size for geese. He wrote Children's books and quite a few Countryside and Wildfowl Shooting books. He used a double 12 bore 3" magnum by The Midland Gun Co.

Another Shooting and Wildfowling author by the name of James Wentworth Day had a double 8 bore by Joseph Lang which he called 'Roaring Emma'. This gun is now owned by a Wildfowling Club and is loaned out to members. There are many accounts of its use in his book 'The Modern Fowler'. Lagopus.....

Reading "The Old Man and the Boy" at age 13, and the Boy Scouts, changed the direction of my life
The Old Man used a never named pump
The Boy's first gun was a 20g loaner from his grandfather, but his Christmas gift was a 16g Sauer
