    Just for you Gil

    As promised I will start to up load pics from time to time of a Parker Hale catalog I have just purchased it is from from 1957 which is my vintage year.
    I am pretty lucky as who ever had this piece has gone through and actually priced allot of the items in Pounds-Shillings-Pence.
    Whilst we think some of the prices were cheap given the era and the wages they were as it is today an expensive hobby if you wanted to be top notch in your gear.
    (I can attest to that as like others here have sunk 10's of thousands into shooting with rifles and gear now guys are fronting at the club with $8,000.oo/Au Swarvo scopes!)

    Anyway It has 200+ pages and I will pick out a few of interest from time to time there are shooting tips in there as well along with all the rifles/Shotguns and apparel.
    Or if someone has a question about an item I will see if its in there.

    Bill tells me he has every leaflet and booklet ever produced by PH, and is leaving them to me in his will. He says his loft is creaking
