  1. My favorite Christmas 'thoughts': "Christmas means you never have to ask GOD how much he loves you" "PEACE - its not about the absence of conflicts or war. Its the presence of a Person.....Jesus". ..........Widder
  2. I think she acts silly. What's funny is that my wife also thinks she is silly. My wife and I don't often agree on these kind of things..... GET WELL SOON, PAT! ..........Widder
  3. FOR LEAD: When I shot a Springfield and a couple other brands, .452 worked great. BUT, my Kimber had a tighter chamber and I had to settle on .451 for consistent feeding and chambering. FOR JACKETED: as mentioned above, .451 ..........Widder
  4. J.Mark, if you got something to say..... say it. Don't beat around the bush. Tell us exactly how you feel....... ..........Widder
  5. Thanks Pards. Apparently, the rifle is worth a few 000's. Maybe its wise for the recipient to drive to TN and just pick it up. Again, thanks! ..........Widder
  6. UB, I was under the impression that the Navy was o.k. with 'rendering the salute' BUT the Commandant of the Marine Corps was not o.k. with it for the Marines. ? ..........Widder
  7. My friend has an 1875 (yes, 1875), Springfield trapdoor rifle and he is wanting to ship it to Mass. Because it is an antique, yet is also a cartridge firing rifle, what are some of the restrictions he needs to LEGALLY abide by? Thanks ..........Widder
  8. ALPO, A Captain in the Navy is different than the Captain in the Army or Marines. Actually, the Captain in the Navy is equivalent to a Bird Col. in the other services. SO..... it depends which Captain walks in before the Colonel. And if the Colonel ain't wearing a Bird, he is of less rank than a Navy Captain. Some of these 'exercises of respect in rank' are different depending upon locations, work functions, etc.... I worked directly for ComSubRon 18. That was the Title of a Navy Captain who was designated 'Commandant' of Sub Squadron 18 on the east coast. His 'TITLE' carried mucho clout, probably more so than his actual rank in the Navy. When he entered our office, we quickly stood and greeted him with just a 'Good Morning/afternoon Sir'. ..........Widder
  9. If he is a Vet with PTSD (or ANYTHING that is 'service connected' problems that prevent him from keeping a job, then the VA will probably have him on a sizable disability rating. Another item to consider is that if he is a disabled Vet, would your company terminate him on such a short notice without a good probable cause? Some companies are very reluctant to terminate a disabled Vet without first proving some disability exist that prevents them from being employed. Another thing to consider is that his age of 65 is good enough to start his Soc.Sec. SS, plus any VA disability can be ample income for some folks to live well on. One advantage, depending upon his VA rating, is that he is probably eligible for ALL his medical expenses, including medicines. ..........Widder
  10. Tell him that his skin tone is starting to look pale, off color a little. Make up a medical 'lie' and tell him he might be having some symptoms of Agent Orange effects. And then suggest he might want to call the VA doctor for an exam. If he calls the VA, he's a Vet. If he don't, he probably ain't never seen the inside of a Quonset Hut..... P.S. - he might not like Pizza..... .........Widder
  11. Your choice in Shotguns is superb. And thats all I gotta say bout that..... ...........Widder
  12. I also use The Smith Shop. Good Pards to deal with also. ..........Widder
  13. That is so good. And I can relate to that story because my Dad did about the same thing. He was born in Sep 1925. In Dec 41, he was only 16 and tried to join the Navy after PH, but his Mom & Dad said....NO, you're only 16. BUT, when he turned 17, he dropped out of High School and with his Mom and Dads permission, he joined the Navy. He served on the USS Blackhawk. Sometime before the end of the war, he got injured by shrapnel in his back, which caused some minor issues. He was sent home and given an Hon Discharge under Medical Conditions. He lived till he was 85 and rarely talked about the war until I ask him about his injury. Thats when he told me about the shrapnel in the back. I said: How did you get shrapnel in the back. He said: There were some explosions going on around us and I was RUNNING FROM THEM. We all laughed because he could tell stories and still add a high degree of humor to them. God bless ALL those men and women who have committed and still commit, their unselfish service to our Nation. ..........Widder
  14. If you've ever seen TN shoot, trust me..... I wasn't worried. ..........Widder
  15. This bit of humor will make TN Williams choke on his Nanner Split..... ..........Widder
