It’s part of the film “Fast and Fancy Shooters” I have it on VHS, purchased probably 35 years ago. I think it’s all on YouTube now. Love the Herb Parsons segment.

Indeed it is! Great watch. I love the Bill Jordan segment. Holy smokes could that guy shoot! Quite the showman, too. Oh yeah, and ginormous hands!😳

My old man took me to see Herb Parsons shoot Winchesters when I was in grade school. A new shotgun with adjustable choke was being showcased.
Herb made joke out of dialing choke to Q for quail. My old man loved that line and I heard it for another 40yrs.

Drm50, what a great memory and a great Pop. The entire thing is a treasure but the Parson bit stands out as he was quite the showman.

Interesting mention of "Partridge Sights" in the video, heck they were not even Patridge sights, but of his own design with a protruding gold bead called, no less than McGivern front sights!
