    I wanted to put a measure on the ballot that would release all English instructors from prison, but apparently... you can't end sentences with a proposition....

    Anyone else read “Rubens with all the trimmings” and think of a corn beef sandwich on marble rye with extra Swiss cheese and kraut? And maybe a splash of French dressing?

    Remembering the Thanklessgivings I spent far from home in the service. This would have made it more pleasant. Napolean was right. An army travels on it's stomach. And not just food!

    I know the aches and pains, having friends die and looking at old pictures make me feel old. But it really hit home when my son turned 55 today! Damn just seemed like yesterday when my wife and I brought him home from the hospital. He just bought himself a new truck for his birthday Happy Birthday to son Steve......!

    Sheesh. I had a package delivered by FedEx and got an email to fill out a survey. 3 days later, UPS delivers a package and I get an email to fill out a survey. I go to the eye doc, and get an email to fill out a survey. My going rate for survey's is $300 per 15 minutes. If you want an answer, you're just going to have to make it worthwhile. Otherwise, I'm not going to respond.

    Hey Widder, Barkeep Casey asked me to pick up his new SKB shotgun for him and it felt a little stiff after I shot a 10 stage black powder match through it. So Badlands Bob suggested that we treat him with cowboy kindness and see if we could loosen it up a little bit for him. Two things here, I do recall that you mentioned having a "special" lube for your best friend's shotgun that you used and also since Barkeep Casey dispenses a little medicinal spirits and since he shoots in my category I felt that it would be in my best interests to imbibe a little whilst administering the lube. Badlands Bob supervised and provided invaluable advice. Ole Bob gives good advice when he's drinking. Whilst working on the shotgun we found it really really really difficult to close so Bob suggested that I dollup a rather heaping tablespoon of said smooth peanut butter on the lugs and inside the action. We think it will work better if it sets up for a few days. The grease in the peanut butter seems to have dissolved the black powder fowling but we'll know in a few days if we were successful in our kind endeavor for our good pard, Barkeep Casey. Barkeep, no thanks is necessary, ole Evil Bob, when he's drinking and Kajun, when he's not, will always be available to properly lube your guns, especially when you shoot in our category. Kajun and Evil Bob, at your service

    "But even a bad cup of coffee is better than no coffee at all." ~David Lynch. I've had plenty of bad coffee, I've had plenty of amazingly good coffee. I will say that no coffee has tasted so good as that perked over a camp stove until black and strong and had while bleary eyed on a cool morning camping with family and friends, unless it is the flavor of hot bitter coffee tinged with the metallic taste of a canteen cup, shared with brothers in arms after stand-to while the fog lifts and the Army slowly rumbles to life. Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    That is basically the same revolver as the Beretta "Laramie". This same allowed modification would apply: SHB p.37 Check with VTI for the replacement part to convert from "adjustable" to "fixed".

    WILLIAM K. CARPENTER DETAILS ALSO KNOWN AS: CARPENTER, KYLE RANK: LANCE CORPORAL (HIGHEST RANK: CORPORAL) CONFLICT/ERA: WAR ON TERRORISM (AFGHANISTAN) UNIT/COMMAND: COMPANY F, 2D BATTALION, 9TH MARINES, REGIMENTAL COMBAT TEAM 1, 1ST MARINE DIVISION (FORWARD), 1 MARINE EXPEDITIONARY FORCE (FORWARD) MILITARY SERVICE BRANCH: U.S. MARINE CORPS MEDAL OF HONOR ACTION DATE: NOVEMBER 21, 2010 MEDAL OF HONOR ACTION PLACE: MARJAH DISTRICT, HELMAND PROVINCE, AFGHANISTAN CITATION For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as an Automatic Rifleman with Company F, 2d Battalion, 9th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 1, 1st Marine Division (Forward), 1 Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward), in Helmand Province, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on 21 November 2010. Lance Corporal Carpenter was a member of a platoon-sized coalition force, comprised of two reinforced Marine squads partnered with an Afghan National Army squad. The platoon had established Patrol Base Dakota two days earlier in a small village in the Marjah District in order to disrupt enemy activity and provide security for the local Afghan population. Lance Corporal Carpenter and a fellow Marine were manning a rooftop security position on the perimeter of Patrol Base Dakota when the enemy initiated a daylight attack with hand grenades, one of which landed inside their sandbagged position. Without hesitation, and with complete disregard for his own safety, Lance Corporal Carpenter moved toward the grenade in an attempt to shield his fellow Marine from the deadly blast. When the grenade detonated, his body absorbed the brunt of the blast, severely wounding him, but saving the life of his fellow Marine. By his undaunted courage, bold fighting spirit, and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of almost certain death, Lance Corporal Carpenter reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service. https://www.cmohs.org/recipients/william-k-carpenter?fbclid=IwAR0tAZr3y2eowFkmgmN04Q0qHF4vnkMG2vtsOM-SNC0JJN6p0FoToGS8USU

    Not too interesting to others, but a milestone for him. With Ranger training and Airborne school behind him, I don't know what is next - Mountain Training (Ft Drum is where he is going). Maybe icicle herding. :-) He is having an absolute wonderful time training and enjoying every minute of it. STL Suomi

    Allow me to introduce Mr. Reid Larson. Since 1977 you could find him on Interstate 74 at Exit 82. Pumping gas and turning wrenches, only closed on Christmas Day. You could be assured that every morning at 6:00 am, Reid was on the job. Except Sundays, he would go to church and open at 10:00 am. If you lived within 5 or so miles and could not get in for repairs, he would pick up your car and return it when done. "Pay me when you see me," he would say. Old school. Old values. Just before Shortcake's dad passed, she got a call from the ICU that he was asking for her. I was subbing that day and could not leave school. Emotional and frazzled she took off for the hospital with a low gas tank. She pulled into Reid's for gas and told him where she was going. He gassed her up quick. She realized she forgot her purse and could not pay him. "Pay me when you see me," Reid said. As she turned around in the station driveway, Reid ran toward her waving his arms to get her to stop. He gave her $40.00 out of his station's till. "You may be there a while and need something to eat and drink," he said. Reid lost his wife this past summer, and decided it was time to go. We are running out of Reid's, sadly. Appreciate the ones you find.

    Once a year I have to take photos of this to prove to the army we still have it and haven’t sold it to the Taliban or a local farmer.

    Har~! Back about fourteen or fifteen years ago I posted that picture on the Wire. It seems there were a bunch of "cowboys" haranguing about rules interpretations and such, and a few of 'em were becoming real pills. (And as we all know, a "pill" is something hard to take! ) Sooo.... I posted a short message, Introducing Marshall Turk, and proposing the formation of a new sub-group in SASS ~ the Grand Old Brotherhood of Bunkhouse Lawyers, Esq, or G.O.B.B.L.E. Marshall Turk was to be the official Spokesturkey and mascot of the organization. Somehow I don't think the windbags appreciated it, but they at least shut up for a short spell.

    Dearest Winter Range Shooters, As a long-time Winter Range competitor myself, it is with an extremely heavy heart that I must write this email. After giving lengthy and serious consideration to the current national situation surrounding COVID 19, the Arizona Territorial Company of Rough Riders has made the difficult decision to cancel Winter Range 2021, our 30th and last presentation of the National Championship of Cowboy Action and Wild Bunch Shooting. Over the last few weeks, Arizona’s and many other State’s COVID numbers have risen to the extent that we no longer feel we can ensure the safety of our shooters, sponsors, vendors, and volunteers. In response to the increasing numbers, and despite the progress we were making with State authorities, the Arizona Game and Fish Department has instituted numerous new restrictions at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility. Among them are the elimination of vendors and public spectators. Additionally, we would not be allowed to hold any social events such as the banquet dinner, swap meet, or the opening, closing and awards ceremonies. Shooting on individual stages has also been limited to groups of ten (10). As you know, many of our shooter’s home States are considering further travel restrictions, with many of them already imposing mandatory "quarantine upon return" restrictions. Our restaurants here in Arizona are again in threat of closing, further limiting capacity, and providing only take-out service. Although the possibility of a “shooting only” Winter Range was discussed at length, it just didn’t seem a fitting end to this world-class event. Winter Range is NOT merely a shooting match, but a "circus event"! People come from all over North America, and from the corners of the world to meet up with friends, wear their Victorian fineries, attend the swap meet, dinners and other social events. They want to lift a glass and perhaps smoke a cigar with their friends whom they haven't seen for months or years. We are NOT just a shooting match...we are so, so much more. Those who have already paid your registration fees, will have the option to have these fees refunded or held over to pay your registration for End of Trail, the World Championship in 2022. You can email Sunshine Kay at Register@WinterRange.com to confirm your choice. Speaking of End of Trail, we are already working on making our first EOT here in Arizona the most spectacular shooting event you have ever attended. The Rough Riders are extremely honored and humbled to be chosen to produce this World Championship Match, and sincerely hope you will attend to be part of it! Although we are all genuinely disheartened to make this decision, our over-riding concern was for everyone's health and safety. This had to take precedence. Please stay safe, take care of yourselves, and we’ll hopefully see you in 2022. Sincerely, Blackjack Zak President and Match Director Winter Range SASS National Championship of Cowboy Action Shooting

    The closed Canadian border and all of the US cancelled matches because of the virus had one positive aspect. I have thousands of rounds for the expected election riots.

    I pull the barrel out of the stock, remove the nipple, stick the nipple end in a 5 gallon pail of hot soapy water. I put a patch on the cleaning jag and pump it until the hot water flows out the top of the barrel. Change the soapy water once do it again. Then I flush it out with clear hot water. When I say hot I mean HOT, I have to use a glove or pad to hold the barrel. It drys quickly and I lube it up and reinstall in the stock after I can touch it with a bare hand. Works every time. That is why the Hawkins have keys to hold the barrel into the fore stock. I don’t have a Hawkin, I have a Dixie Gunworks “Poorboy”. It uses thin pins, which makes removal a little more difficult. Same for the lock, disassemble and scrub clean with hot soapy water then lube. More work than smokeless powder, still worth it to be sure of thorough cleaning. CJ
