  1. You are exactly right. A long time ago, I can remember talking to a shooting pard and we would talk about our 'wishes' for certain guns. One of our major conversations was about wanting 'this-n-that' for our Ruger 10/22's, but MOST of our wishes were not being manufactured at the time. Now, everything is available, in various configurations, sizes, colors, etc....... so just about anything imaginable is now available for us to build our dream rifles. Of course, it helps to have a healthy checkbook when you go shopping for these custom parts. OKIE: I will say this about the KIDD trigger systems....... I think they are noticeably better than any of the others I have tried, which includes Volquartsen and Tandemcross, which are still great trigger systems. The KIDD has a 2-stage trigger that is unreal ( I own one), but their single stage trigger system is buttery smooth and precise, and for the money, the single stage trigger system is all most of us should ever desire. I have two of the KIDD single stage trigger systems in my 10/22's, and I have only one of the 2-stage trigger systems in a 10/22. YES... the 2-stage is a tad nicer and a dream to use..... but save your money and get the single stage trigger system, if you decide to buy a trigger system. Thanks for the kind words on the Marlin .32. If you ever have any issues, give me a shout. I warranty my work, including all shipping cost. ..........Widder
  2. OKIE, Here are a couple businesses with reputable aftermarket 10/22 stuff. F.J. Feddersen: fjfeddersen.com KIDD: coolguyguns.com Although Feddersen doesn't show their receivers on their website, it possible they still might have some in stock. Personally, I have a Feddersen receiver on one of my 10/22's, AND.... I have a KIDD on 2 of my 10/22's. Both receivers are perfect. The Feddersen receiver has the picatinny rail built into the receiver. The KIDD receiver has groves to mount their separate picatinny, BUT... KIDD will give options on their picatinny rails, as you will see in their descriptions. From my experience building 5 separate Ruger 10/22's over the past few years, you can't go wrong with anything made by KIDD. If you visit the 'coolguyguns' website, you will be able to do A LOT of window shopping wishes. They have everything. And if you want a great laminate stock, visit BOYD's stock manufacturer: ..........Widder
  3. If he ever got a bad case of 'gas' wearing that bubble suit, he'd look like that Michelin man..... THEN..... he'd start floating away and the Air National Guard would fly up to shoot him down like a spy balloon. ..........Widder
  4. The .38 Competition: NO LESS than $1400 The .45 Colt: $1000 would be a good buy for the buyer. $1200 might also sell faster than you can blink yeowndangeyeball... I took my .45 and cut the barrel to 16.5". I only shoot sup'd up hot .45 Colt loads in it. A good hot Colt .45 in a short barrel rifle is basically equivalent to a .454 Casull in a 7" pistol barrel. Good luck in your decisions to sell or keep them. ..........Widder
  5. Purely hypothetical. A military person commits a crime against another military person. For example, lets say..... Murder. If a civilian court puts the accused person on trail and he is acquitted, can the military convene a court martial on the same charge? And if convicted in a military court martial, can the accused be sentenced to jail time, OR.......... would 'double jeopardy' come into play. ..........Widder
  6. I once dated a Bip Lip girl and when she put on lipstick, my forehead looked like that after a wet kiss. If you had been wearing your Cowboy hat, it probably wouldn't have scuffed you up so bad. Seriously, I hate that happen to you. Has TN Williams been hanging around you lately with them chicken feet? ..........Widder
  7. I saw one of those once at a crash site at Area 51. The one I saw had some strange markings (writing) on it and was impervious to fire. PLUS..... it had a tendency to float in mid air when in the sun light. Beyond that, I'm restricted to say anything else..... EDIT: I might add that Jabez Cowboy also knows what it is but he's restricted to make any comments about it. And if ask, he'll deny any knowledge of it or its usefulness in levitation. ..........Widder
  8. REX, from what little I've read, I agree with you. And of those 3 you mentioned, Bill would be the one I WOULD NOT want to face off in a gun battle, especially close range. Ed McGivern would be one I wouldn't want to have a shoot out with at long distances. And with Jerry Miculek, I would just let him shoot all his ammo up before I engaged in the battle. Ya see, I don't think JM can fire just 1 round. Once he starts pulling the trigger, he's on auto fire till all the ammo is gone. Then is would be safer to come from behind my rock and fire back..... ..........Widder
  9. Don't forget Sardines, boiled eggs, and a cold Pepsi. WHEW! ..........Widder
  10. We all know about how beneficial speed can be and that accuracy can be just as beneficial, if not more so. But I was talking about 2 folks, drawing and firing, and what speed would have to incur in order for 2 shots to in flight at the same time..... that the possibility of BOTH participants being shot basically at the same time they fired their pistols. I think some folks above have answered the question. THANKS ..........Widder
  11. Two Hombres are facing off in the street. They are approx 25 feet apart. BOTH are shooting .45 Colt revolvers shooting their 255 grain slugs at 900 fps. BUT, one hombre is slightly faster than the other. How fast does the 2nd shooter need to fire his round to shoot the other shooter before the 1st round fired hits him? In other words, what time sequence between both shots is needed to allow both bullets in flight at the same time? ..........Widder
  12. I think its exactly what Subdeacon Joe stated, and to be honest, I don't know where it started. Ya see, its used to add content to emphasize a previous statement or help justify an upcoming statement. Here is another example: "I believe Dr. Bottlestopper is a good man, and to be honest, I also think he's one of the best doctors in the hospital". ..........Widder

  14. Fox News reported this morning that the Prez is gonna initiate an executive order that requires ALL gun transfers have a background check...... even among private owners. If this is so, does this mean that every time a firearm is used in Hollywood, a background check must be initiated in order for that firearm to be handled by anyone working with that firearm? I think the NRA should pursue this requirement. It would help keep guns out of the hands of the 'Baldwins' in Hollywood. ..........Widder
  15. Here's about the best advice I can share for a new shooter: 1. BE SAFE and obey safety rules/guidelines. 2. Have fun. ..........Widder
