  1. Yesterday I went to a Golden Corral buffet. Decent food, really clean and had a nice meal. Was on my way to get dessert and saw 4 bikers come in. These were actual 1%ers, wearing colors on their vests. They aren't bothering anyone, but some STUPID kid, looked about 17 mouths off to one of the bikers with "Get your stupid, slow F$%^$ A&% out of the way". I can see in the biker's eyes this kid is about to get gut stomped right there. Why I decided to speak up I don't know but I look at this kid and tel him "Kid, you are messing with a real biker. Before you get gut stomped and go to the hospital, you better apologize and get out of his way. He is not gonna be disrespected by a twerp like you." I guess some instinct for survival finally kicked in and the kid did apologize and ran for his mommy. The biker's girl looked at me and asked how I knew that. Told her worked Corrections for 26 years, all high risk or max prisons. I guess I just didn't want to see the biker go to jail for dishing out what the punk had coming...

  2. Do you have the opportunity to meet personally with the chief and discuss the problems you've been plagued with this year? He may have just looked at a spread sheet total without knowing what's really going on. I hope you get this issue resolved.

  3. Today we were holding a garage sale for my 97-year-old mom. An elderly fellow wearing a Korean War Vet cap dropped by and visited for a bit. He was very lively and sharp. He was also 91 years old. His name is Robert McAnear. He handed me a card from a stack in his pocket, and asked me to share it if I liked. It was a poem he wrote: A NAME ON THE WALL I did not know you... You are from far away. ...from a small town I never knew. I did not see you when you fell. ...I did not hear your last breath, nor feel your last pulse. ...I only know you died. ...for the same cause that my friends died. The difference is that I heard their cries, and heard the sounds that brought this pain. ...Their blood mixed with mine, and I felt their hands...holding on to me. ...and I could not help them. I could tell their loved ones how they died, ...but I can never know their pain. ...or understand what they tried to say. I can only remember what I saw... in their eyes, in the half light, and I know they died for all of us...but...not alone. I cannot tell you what they said - that was only for those they leave behind, heart to heart, soul to soul, ..not to be shared with others. These were private thoughts - not for strangers - I do not know you, but my friend died, ...holding my hand, and, I honor you both the same. You both died for all of us, ...and you will be remembered. by Robert McAnear

  4. Yes, the vendor COULD be traveling however, as a vendor who travels - I do have a smart phone with me - I ALWAYS check emails and send an “I’m in ABC at the state shoot and will be home on XYZ day and will be in touch”. Then, every month or so I will go through my emails and check if there are emails or messages that I have missed. There were one or two that fell through the cracks over the summer between EOT and fall shooting… I contacted those I missed and apologized. I expect a lot of myself and keeping up with my customers is important. I don’t think I have EVER missed THREE emails from the SAME customer! You deserve better. Hugs! Scarlett

  6. It was fantastic ... again, Not sure how they keep getting better each year but they seem to do it year after year. Thanks to the whole crew, it takes a team effort to make a match run like this one did.

  7. First time I ever saw the lady who became my wife. I asked her to marry me and seven months later she did. My friends said it wouldn't last. It did for 51 yers. If that isn't magic, I don't what is.

  9. Wherever I drink a root beer a picture appears in my mind. It's my view as a kid from the back passenger seat looking over my dads shoulder in the driver's seat. The car hop is putting the tray hooked onto the window with those frosty glass mugs of root beer. No ice, but ice cold in those mugs.

  12. There is SO MUCH wrong with that picture. First, there's only one egg. Then it's up, not over. Whole wheat toast? Cream in the coffee? Come on now people. As has been mentioned, the gun's lying on the wrong side. And while hash browns are desirous, grits are a necessity.

  13. A few years ago someone found an empty .223 shell on the elementary school grounds my kids went to. I was talking to the janitor about it while waiting for school to get out. Apparently everyone was in a bother about it. When my kids came out the Principal was right there, so I asked her about it, just to mess with her. She was all upset about it, and then she remembered I was a shooter. So, she looked at my son(1st grade) and then looked at me and asked if I knew anything about it. I answered " it couldn't have been my son, he never carries anything smaller than a 44 " and walked away, enjoying the funny look she got on her face.

  14. Howdy Dippers, I've never used Lee Dippers; however, for those of us who need the reminder: CC's and CI's are a measure of volume. On the other hand, grains are a measure of weight. Therefore, a powder dipper can't be labeled in grains as that will be different for each powder used as the density and weight of powders is different from one formulation/brand to the next. Unless I've missed something. Identifying as Capt. Obvious, Rev. Chase

  15. Well, boys, we got three engines out, we got more holes in us than a horse trader's mule, the radio is gone and we're leaking fuel and if we was flying any lower why we'd need sleigh bells on this thing... but we got one little budge on them Rooskies. At this height why they might harpoon us but they dang sure ain't gonna spot us on no radar screen!

  18. 23 1/2 years? I think I'd consider going another six months and then retiring. Maybe a second career with a private outfit....possibly at more money and a shot at a second retirement down the line. But then again, I had a lot of jobs over my lifetime and the longest was eleven years, second longest was six and I retired at 58.

  25. The TN State, hosted by the Wartrace Regulators, was a darn good place to spend a weekend. The match was 1st rate. I got to shoot with Sadelia Dave and Tequila Shooter. And, I got to meet and shoot with Roy’s Creek Dan. He’s a good friend of Red Knee out in Oklahoma. And of course, one of my favorite Cowboys, and proud to call friend..... Max Montana. Thanks to ALL the Wartrace ‘Jack Daniels’ Regulars for help making this ole, cobweb feeling, Cowpolk feel a little younger again. POSSE 13.5 was a blast. ..........Widder

  28. I would like to thank Scotch Before Noon and @Marshal TKD, Sass # 36984L for coming out to the range today. They heard about my back problems and helped me set up the last bit of steel tonight. If course, I have so much help running through me right now, I'm not feeling much pain.

  30. The 2 piece lever was added to keep the lever up and closed until the shooter wanted to open it. The 1 piece 87 lever can pop open once the gun has some wear on it and the action gets a little loose. The safety on an 87 is what looks like a fishhook barb on the back side at the bottom of the trigger. That goes into a small hole when the lever is closed. A properly tuned 87 will not fire until the lever is completely closed. ( Talking about real 87s and the Chiappa and Cimarron copies not the IAC or CAI copies.)

  31. Will do! It’s been over on the Wild Bunch wire for a little while and just thought we would post here also. Lots of really neat fun scenarios with men’s and women’s catagories recognized to 3rd place for conchos we are presenting.

  33. It was such a good time and posse 13.5 was awesome. We had a good time, had fast shooters, clean shooters and everyone pitched in. @Tennessee williams and @Sedalia Dave did an excellent job running the posse. And of course folks like @Widder, SASS #59054 and @Mean Mary 45913 kept everyone shooting straight. Thanks to all of the hard working pards of the Wartrace Regulators for putting on another quality match!

  42. A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by an Irish Garda. He thinks that he is smarter than the cop because he is a London lawyer, from London, and is certain that he has a better education than any paddy cop. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Garda's expense!! The Irish Garda says," License and registration, please." London Lawyer says, "What for?" Irish Garda replies, "You didn't come to a complete stop at the Stop sign." London Lawyer says, "I slowed down, and no one was coming." Irish Garda says, "You still didn't come to a complete stop. License And registration, please." London Lawyer says, "What's the difference?" Irish Garda says, "The difference is, you have to come to complete stop, that's the law. License and registration, please!" The London lawyer says, "If you can show me the legal difference between "slow down" and "stop", I'll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don't give me the ticket." The Irish Garda says, "Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir." The London lawyer exits his vehicle. The Irish Garda takes out his baton and starts beating the lawyer with it and says, "Now do you want me to stop, or just slow down?"
