  1. Lever Rat, I don't know Squibber personally, but a good friend told me a couple years back that Squibber was in NY, where my friend lived. i could be wrong on the location. But I have heard thru numerous folks that 'Squibber' is a great 97 smith. I hope you get you 97 back soon and it runs like a sewing machine on steroids. ..........Widder
  2. Be glad to. Right now, its 5:40. Give me about 10 minutes and I'll send you a pm. ..........Widder
  3. Well now, that is really nice. Thanks for posting. And great shooting. ..........Widder
  4. If you live in NY (?), you might want to try Squibbers. Surely some of your locals have heard of him. Roy's Creek Dan in Oklahoma is a well known 97 smith. Indeed, Lassiter in Ohio is one heck of a gunsmith and knows 97's. Outlaw Gambler is also well known for his 97 work. Coyote Cap is also well known for great 97 work. And there are many others. ..........Widder
  5. Thats a nice thought, Capt. Some may even have black arm bands. I didn't know Papa Dave like many others did at Wartrace, but I would be surprised if he would want anything to change at the match other than our continued support for the Fight Against Cancer. Maybe even a PINK piece of tape on our name badges in his memory. And the pink tape could also be in recognition and memory of others who are fighting and those who have lost the battle with Cancer. ..........Widder
  6. Its time for the local electric company issue some Firecrackers or Fireworks to local residence. Keep those birds moving and they'll eventually move out of the area. ..........Widder
  7. There have been some SASS members kicked out of some clubs and forbid the 'Kicked out' SASS member from shooting at that club/range. My guess is the meaning of "good standing" means the SASS member doesn't have any restrictions on shooting at that club/range sponsored match. ..........Widder
  8. WOW Deuce. Those are some mighty nice looking pistols. I like those Bisley style hammers. ..........Widder
  9. ALPO, you might make a good point on the DA/SA name, BUT..... you're gonna have to convince Revolver and Pistol manufacturers to start correcting their advertisement specs. They all list stuff like DA pull poundage and then SA pull poundage. According to the manufacturer: My SIG P229 is DA/SA. My Springfield Ronin 1911 is SA. ..........Widder
  10. This comment of mine probably doesn't answer your question about .45 ACP's, BUT..... in relation to GF style of 'cocking revolvers', please remember that it is not required to alternate each shot from each pistol. If it helps you to speed up your GF style shooting, you can fire 2, 3 or even 5 shots from one pistol and then sneak in a shot(s) from your 'slow' pistol to help you in your 'speed' attempts. Not every GF is a speedster in their pistol shooting. But many have adopted a technique that helps them reduce their shooting string times. ..........Widder
  11. Howdy Snakebite. Personally speaking, I think some of the '.32 craze' has eased up somewhat. When the .32 H&R Marlins became basically extinct and out of reasonable price range for most everyone, the pistol demand dimenished a little also. BUT..... a trade such as you have mentioned is highly probable. A lot of folks have multiple sets of .38's and there are still folks who would like some .32 Rugers....... as long as they don't have to dish out their life savings to get them. I love my .32's and still shoot them. But I also shoot a Marlin .32 H&R. Great combo. Just my opin. ..........Widder
  12. Seems like you get surprised by a lot of older folks..... ..........Widder
  13. I had heard about 'Papa Dave' even before I ever met him, years back. He was a great ambassador for our game/sport and a descent man to know. He could make a soul feel 'good' just being around him. Many of us will miss him greatly. My condolences to his family and closest friends and to his close partners at Wartrace. RIP 'Papa Dave'. ..........Widder
  14. Hells Comin has ALWAYS been one of the best and fastest 97 shooters in our game. His 2.86 for 4 on 4 doesn't surprise me. I doubt it surprises Red Knee also. Congratulations to Hells Comin and Robyn da Vault on a great run. ..........Widder
  15. Tyrel, Red Knee's mentor is coming to the TN State. The man who got Red Knee shooting a 97 and teaching him a good deal of what he knows. The man who has also beat Red Knee in some speed competition at one time. A man I'm looking forward to meeting and hanging out with a spell. And a man who is also one of the best 97 smith's in the country. The man..... Roy's Creek Dan. He's as fine a feller you'd ever want to meet. Look him up at the State and say 'Howdy'. ..........Widder
  16. Capt BB, maybe with some good practice and a few more months, his SG might start sounding like 'Iron Cowboy' in which he can carve his own notch. Hopefully, the SG class can help him and if he needs any 1 on 1 encouragement, I'll be glad to help. 1 on 1 instructions are FREE for our younger shooters. You'll owe me a cold diet Pepsi if I have to help you..... ..........Widder
  17. I guess that 2 to 1 odds help you buy that inflatable giraffe. But if you think about it, stabbing your rubber ducky with a fork sounds like SOMEBODY has already started using their HooDoo doll on you. In might be time to involk incantation #7. ..........Widder
