  1. You are probably totally correct. But when that small part of the pie is made with salt instead of sugar..... well, the whole pie is usually discarded. There are a lot of small parts of a major match that help make it a success or failure: Vendors (food and Cowboy stuff), organization, target setup and props, etc..... and even the weather. Making the shooters happy with stage scenarios plays a big part which is the reason match directors and stage writers work overtime to avoid stages that might have a 'P' trap. And also when those Match Directors go to great strides to set up 10-12 stages that will completely accommodate all styles of shooting, and all sizes of shooters. They establish staging tables that are not toooooo short nor toooooo tall, and window/door frames with appropriate size as not to hinder tall shooters, although tall shooters are only a small percentage, etc........... Yep, you're right..... its a small piece of the pie. But it takes all the right ingredients to make it tasteful and enjoyable. Have a good day. ..........Widder
  2. I agree with JEDI Creeker. And I'm glad he used his black ink so that I wouldn't have to. type all that stuff he stated..... ..........Widder
  3. RYE, There is some good and accurate information above post by some knowledgeable Wire Pards. From my personal experience, here is my opinion: 1. The 04 series and up appear to be better IAC's. They can be tuned to run as good as anyone is capable of running them. 2. 'SOME' of the 01 thru 03 series are good.....but a real good 97 smith might be needed to enhance their life span. And it doesn't hurt the 04 series and up to also be tuned by a good smith. 3. I use an 01 series and an 09 series for my dry fire practice with good results. I used an 03 and 04 series for about 8 years in all my monthly matches and side match speed competition. My 04 series model can be considered a 97 lovers 'dream model'. It's flawless. It has been abused and still keeps on ticking. 4. I presently use 3 CB series (Cowboy) models for monthly matches..... including my 03 series model. These are just darn good guns. 5. Like all of our guns, your gonna find folks who swear by some and folks that curse some of them. $300 is a great price..... regardless I think a properly tuned IAC 97 is as good, if not better, than a Winny 97. Good luck and I hope you enjoy your new toy. ..........Widder
  4. TW thinks if he shaves his head, rubs ash on his body and wears a sack cloth Cowboy outfit that its gonna help him shoot better in the match. You ask..."Who is WaterLou". We all might be 'WaterLou'd if we start getting that rain. ..........Widder
  5. I heard you visited the barber shop today. You know what happened to Samson when he got his hair cut, don't you? Instead of meeting Delilah, you might be meeting your Waterloo. ..........Widder
  6. YEP, Groundhogs can and do climb. Atleast those in Tennessee can. ..........Widder
  7. From what I hear, you might want to find somebody to shoot for you too. ..........Widder
  8. How would you classify a pistol that has only been deburred and correct springs installed? How about a rifle that has been deburred and properly tuned using CORRECT springs, and not the overloaded spring systems from the factory? Some "stock' guns are fine, some ain't. How do you prefer to discern the difference? ..........Widder
  9. 3 CANS! With 3 cans, you could just spray it up in the atmosphere to cover the range. That should stop any moisture from falling on us. ..........Widder
  10. A person can get ready for the rain. You can get ready for supper. You can even get ready for Christmas and New Years. Heck, you can even get ready to deal with a bunch of Widdermaniacs. But can we really get ready for the TW or Krazy Kajun manifestations that could befall on us in Alabama? ..........Widder
  11. The phrase..... "not touching any firearm" can be interpreted to mean that NO PART of the body can be touching a firearm. That was not the intent of that rule. The intent of the rule is that THE HANDS can't be touching any firearm. On a side note: when I'm standing in the default position, my forearms are 'touching' the grips of my pistols because of the position in which I wear my pistols. And I would venture to guess when most folks strap on 2 revolvers and stand upright with their arms hanging downward along their side, their forearms are probably 'touching' their pistol grips. P.S. - Thanks Sadie. Wording it correctly is noteworthy. ..........Widder
  12. Excellent stages and great video presentation. Thanks BWJ. ..........Widder
  13. TN Williams told me this morning that he has started his Anti-Rain Incantations using preserved Buzzards eyeballs from both a Male and Female buzzard. Plus, some other secret family concoction passed down from his famous uncle..... Percy Elgonquin Byrum. As many of you are aware, Percy was the feller back in the 1800's what discovered that a good match could burn a tick off the butt of a Bull. Poor Percy died while showing off his discovery to a group of doctors when a sensitive butt bull kicked him in his little boys. Anyhow, TW says.......... NO RAIN! p.s. - I think I'll pack my umbrella, nonetheless. ..........Widder
  14. Do you think that dead squirrel or rabbit will care whether it was shot with a 16" or 18" barrel? I doubt it.. Besides..... I thought you lost that rifle in a boating accident. ..........Widder
