  1. Safe travels and may your new home be a blessing in many ways. Knowing some of the Pards from Indiana, I can understand your feelings of leaving. ..........Widder
  2. Yes. A NEW spring can normally be trimmed to about 3-4 cartridge lengths longer than the magtube. After that new spring has had time to 'set' (probably around 6 months), the overall length can be 2 cartridge lengths longer than the mag tube. If you keep your mag tube clean, minimal magtube spring length will be sufficient. Remember..... you only need enough spring force to push ONE round onto the carrier..... which is the last round. I'm not actively working on Marlin att, mainly because I stay fairly busy with Henry .22 work. Basic Marlin work to help smooth up the action can be found on Marauder's website with various Marlin smiths sharing good info. Good luck. ..........Widder
  3. Thats funny. Don't forget to change your alias to 'Klinger' for the match...... ..........Widder
  4. What are 'the standards'? My standards are not the same as 60 year old Mrs. X World Champion type shooters have various 'standards'. GF, Duelist and Tradition style shooters have their 'standards'. I'm just curious as to who's standards we are suppose to use for character building results and who is suppose to judge those results. ..........Widder
  5. Try them BOTH. You may find you have a technique that adapts to one over the other that suits you best. And maybe the 87 also. I actually started SASS with a SxS for the first couple years but never seem to adapt to it well. Then I tried the 97 and found it was better for me. Good Luck. ..........Widder
  6. A Special thanks to my good friend Red Knee who was instrumental in helping raise close to $500 as his part of the Cancer fund raiser at the TN State this year. I know that some enjoy our banter on the Wire..... and others may not. But our goal was to bring more attention to CANCER and help raise some good $$$ in the fight against it. Sure, we both (along with others) wanted to win the speed 97 side match. But the REAL GOAL was to bring attention to the Cancer fund raiser, even if it meant making us both look crazy to those that don't know us (of course, those that know us already know we are crazy). He, along with Christian Hammer, traveled a good distance from Oklahoma to be a significant part in this years fund raiser and I'm grateful for that..... plus, it was good to shoot with him all weekend. You're a good friend..... and a darn good 97 shooter. Thanks. ..........Widder
  7. Indeed. The JEDI Council normally makes this recognition towards the end of the year but this year, TN Tombstone was our Unanimous choice and it was deemed most appropriate to make the recognition official at the TN State this past weekend. The hardest part was keeping it a secret because a buckle had to be ordered and others needed to be involved for the presentation. Special thanks to Last Kiss, Korupt Karl and Billy The Avenger for their help. Tombstone was greatly surprised and honored. Receiving this recognition is kinda like one of them 'Life Long Achiecement' awards and Tombstones resume is very impressive in his SASS life. Congratulations to a Top Cowboy who deserves the recognition..... JEDI GF of the YEAR 2019 ! ..........Widder
  8. Well, I'm hitting the road and leaving the Wire behind. Probably the next time I'm on here will be after I've been demolished by the OKIE TORNADO KID. Safe travels everyone, especially my good buddy, Red Knee! No doubt, he's a great sport and a great 97 shooter. ..........Widder
  9. Red Knee........ just bring the Bounty money, cause its gonna be in Randy's hands shortly after the side match starts..... And don't forget to bring Gomer and Goober, those 2 wild and crazy 97's. ..........Widder
  10. "Never bring a sling shot to a sword fight"......... Goliath ..........Widder
  11. Yep, sounds like fun. Just curious..... how many sling shot experts were there amongst the Cowboys? ..........Widder
