Gable had a Parker BHE 32" barrel with BTFE 28g SN 201993 shipped 6-13-23 (obviously purchase later), a 32" BHE 20g, a DHE given him by Joan Bennett, and a VR A-1 Special purchased at the New York Sportsman's Show, from the Remington rep Cliff Baldwin, after the NYC premier of "Gone With the Wind" Dec. 19, 1939. He later gave the A-1 to Gary Cooper - leaning against the car.

He also had a 20g CHE 2 barrel set.

Neat stuff. There are also a bunch of pics of John Wayne and Robert Stack with Remingtons floating around on the net.
I do not trust Remington's dating service. If they were Match.com, you could end up with Nancy Pelosi.

What could have happened... did.
