Intent of Being the Best

STORY BY Terry Wieland

‘‘The 1980s brought a resurgence in interest in the great American double guns of the past.

The Connecticut River Valley is the historic “gun valley” of America’s early industrial development in the heart of Yankee country, home to some of the great names in American shotguns. During the 1970s, many of the industries of gun valley in Connecticut fell into decay; companies went out of business; others moved away. The 1980s brought a resurgence in interest in the great American double guns of the past. Most notably, an attempt was made to resurrect the Parker (via the Parker Reproduction) and prices of original Parker shotguns began their inexorable climb. With this trend came the arrival of Antony Galazan, the guardian of America’s double-gun heritage.
