I recently acquired one of Phil Miller's guns and would love to find any info or pictures of Mr. Miller. Phil Miller, from Dallas, Tx, is in the Trapshooters Hall of Fame and holds a few records, that much I do know. It seems he was active in the teens, up into the 50's and 60's. Anything you can provide on him would be a big help, especially the gun's he used.

Thanks

Dick Baldwin's book has interesting info on Phil Miller.

He was very dapper and was reputed to be a professional gambler.

He was also a good shot.

I find Phil for the first time in 1916 but miss him in some later years. He may have switched his allegiance to another state or took a break from shooting. In 1916, he was a high volume, high average shooter. I'll have to go back and see what my friend Dick Baldwin says about Phil.

The gun in a L.C.Smith Crown Grade single barrel trap. I sent for a research letter fron the LCSCA and found out that Phil Miller sent the gun to the factory for repairs in 1939. The gun was made in 1921 and Phil Miller is the only person associated with the gun in the letter.
