Nice buy there Bruce,

That is a nice 10, and the story about using it in the outhouse is one for the ages.

I would prefer a Parker with a little more condition.

I guess I missed Bill posting photos of all the wonderful Parker’s he talks about. Maybe repost ?

Yes , that is the famed outhouse blaster ! It would be difficult to find a higher condition hammer Parker .

I actually remember when Richard posted a picture of him standing up on the seat gun pointed 'down and in'. My first reaction was "WTF", until I read the accompanying description. While it bordered on 'TMI' (Too Much Information), it was Richard, and it was hysterical.
