    So to speak. Today, I retired from my Law Enforcement job, after 34 years of full time and 36 years total. I start in the morning at a local gun shop as manager. Working in Law Enforcement was a front seat at the greatest show on earth, but it's time to change to something else.

    I'm on my way I guess. Rifle (73) should be here at the end of the week. Revolvers (Runnin Irons), should be here in 3 weeks. Still looking for a shotgun. Researching leather tonight and tomorrow, looking to order late tomorrow.

    My wife and I went for a drive this morning to our local San Juan Mts to see the fall colors. It was spectacular! The Aspen and Oak Brush are blazing. Usually the first week of October is the best and this year didn't disappoint us. This area is about 1/2 hour away from us.

    Thats a good point, though I'd consider both coffee and beer as stepping stones to the final destination topic of going to the bathroom

    LOL, you might find the back seat of my Camaro a tad cramped (Sharyn would be with me) and some folks object to driving 90 mph. I never have understood why, it's only half the car's rated speed.

    Yes, I'm guilty of looking at women, and looks, and their curves. To be honest, an amazing pair of eyes can do wonders for me, something I've realized more and more with the mask mandates! But I have to say, I've gotten into more trouble from Mrs. Doc for looking at cars driven by women than anything else. I vividly recall a conversation where she told me to stop looking at a woman. I told her I was looking at the car. She didn't believe me. (This was after I had gotten my Neon R/T, and I'm a bit of a Neon enthusiast so don't judge, but bear with me). I replied that since it was a first generation coupe, with four wheel disk brakes, and what looked like 15" wheels and low profile tires, I was trying to figure out if it was an ACR (American Club Racer) or not. After she mentioned it, I did glance up and it was driven by a young attractive female. Mrs. Doc's response was something to the effect of "Fine, stop staring at the car, she thinks you're looking at her, and it's annoying me."

    With most targets at 10 - 12 yards, Chokes in yer shotgun are about like a Drag Chute on a Turtle. Cylinder bore works just fine.

    I also got this stage painted. Wasn't too bad, it's only one target set a bit close. I put it in just in case Widder shows up. This is it from the furthest shooting position... Cap'n BB will probably just shoot this one 12 times. I'll let y'all know when the scores come out

    Ruger purchased Marlin. If Ruger had simply been interested in jumping into the lever gun market; they could have easily done so on their own (see AR rifles and 1911's). Im sure they purchased Marlin exactly for their product portfolio and name recognition within their niche. So while I assume quality will improve. I sincerely doubt you will see any kind of wholesale changes in the product itself and really question whether any "oddball" wish list firearms will appear sporting the Marlin name. When you purchase an asset for it's specific strengths (in this case, product mix and name) - the last thing you do is make significant external or recognizable changes that may dilute the very thing you paid for.

    Now I just want y'all to know that Tennessee Williams don't just eat Nanner Splits and Nanner Puddin', that boy can work. In fact he has been taking up my slack and painting targets the last few days and man has he got them looking good!!

    Thank you all for your support. The Arizona Territorial Company of Rough Riders shares your excitement and enthusiasm. Former members such as Larson E. Pettifogger have made Winter Range the world-class event that it has become. Now we look forward to combining that with a world championship match, and hope you will be happy with the results. Be assured, this is not just "Winter Range with a new name" or "EOT moved west"; but the absolute best that we can produce, both event and match. As for dates, if they move it won't be much at all. We want the best weather that Phoenix has to offer, and will always take that into consideration. More to come...much, much more!

    Ah! That's why! When they jiggle or wobble the movement is what draws our eyes! I've got to remember that. I guess I'm lucky, my wife will point out good looking women to me. I enjoy looking, she knows it, she enjoys me enjoying looking. A few days ago I was in a store and a woman was wearing a shirt with huge side cut outs. Could see everything. Why is it that almost invariably the ones who dress like that are like watching a car crash? You really don't want to see it?

    I sure hope with EOT moving to Phoenix, that they keep the same date range of WR. Phoenix in June can be BRUTAL!

    Only in Alabama! True story, my wife and I started tracing our family trees. We quit it when the branches unexpectedly got too close together! Seems like everybody on Sand Mountain is kinfolk, best marry out of state to avoid cross-eyed kids!

    I know I'll miss a shotgun target some day, but in this sport I doubt it will be due to the choke.

    Doing well. No pain or numbness. That's a good sign. I am so ready to get this cast / brace thing off. I have another 8 days of wearing this thing. Thank you for asking.

    I remember the first time I heard her song "I am woman". I was just a kid. I always liked her. I guess I even had a crush on her. I distinctly recall my Mom listening to the radio and that song came on and my Dad walked over and changed the station. My Mom changed it back. There were some harsh words spoken and then my Mom took the pot of chili she was making and dumped it in the sink and she told my Dad "Make your own damn lunch" and walked out. My Dad was an ass. Yes, Ms. Reddy had an impact. Rest In Peace, Helen Reddy.

    IMIS, those of us who planned months ahead have ended up having Heart surgery, hip or knee surgery or back issues/surgery. Folks like TN Williams don't make plans for nothin except plans to cause trouble..... I think it was his HooDoo doll that put the hex on me and Randy. ..........Widder

    Dennis Weaver, aka Chester, thought the stiff leg would add to the persona of his character. Nothing more than a broomstick handle taped to his leg. Every once in a while you can see the end of it poking the pants leg. Many years later he stated how miserable it to wear it and wished he never had come up with the idea.

    Cowboy, If you think some of this talk is 'brash', just wait till you meet Krazy Kajun. He's a CoonAss. Shoots like one too. And you'll know TN Williams before you meet him. He walks thru the parking lot and will stop and tell hisowndangself a joke, slap hisself on the back and sez...."thats funny" and then walks away laughing. Nobody else is around him. He just laughs at hisself. ..........Widder

    Never, ever, ever use a debit card for purchases. Credit cards are insured and easier to recover than debit cards, which are tied directly into your bank account(s).
