    In a thread about Kemmerly Triggers(a thread that is now closed to further posting), There seems to be some confusion about the record of both Rudy Etchen and Merle Kemmerly. Rudy Etchen broke the FIRST 100 straight in doubles "ever" recorded at the Grand in 1950 using a then new 870 Remington pump gun. At the time Mr. Etchen was shooting as "INDUSTRY PROFESSIONAL" and NOT in Amature status. This has caused some confusion.-- Mr. Kemmerly's record was that of the first 100 straight in doubles posted by an "AMATURE SHOOTER", but he did not accomplish this until 10 years later in 1960.

    Is that the gun I have seen at the HOF with the upholstery tacks in the stock?
