    First picture is of my dad, Ted Philipbar, taken around 1964. Notice the Win. model 21 side X side. Dad shot the mod. 21 for several years. He is very likely the last person to break 200 straight at the Grand, and perhaps in the ATA with a side-by-side shotgun. I know Johnny Sternberger did it a few times, but quite sure before 1964. He shot it good! And he shot it fast!

    right or left? supposedly the left barrel shot softer on a 21.

    usually the left barrel is the more open barrel, and the left tighter. Quite sure my dad's gun was full/full...later on, he had a custom 21, quite sure it was 32", but don't think that was the gun he shot real good scores with.

    Thanks, EB,...naw, pops sold that long ago. Along with most of his collection...he had some nice Winchesters, rifles and shotguns. He was actually more of a rifle buff than shotgun. Our entire shooting store/range operation evolved from his handloading business in the early 60's. Are you going to the Westy Hogans? Take care, Jeff
