  1. Its seems like every video on YouTube about someones favorite semi-auto pistol makes a big deal out of the 'reset'. Better known as 'trigger reset'. Yet I don't know a single person who can 'accurately' shoot one fast enough to take advantage of a short 'reset'. Heck, I don't even know anyone who can even 'Inaccurately' shoot one fast enough to take advantage of a short 'reset'. Any of you ever pay much attention to your 'reset' when shooting your semi-auto pistols? What's the big deal with having a short 'reset'? ..........Widder
  2. Next time your shadow throws a round house, you better duck..... ..........Widder
  3. JEB, I immediately replied to your PM a couple days ago but haven't heard back from you. Hope you are doing well. ..........Widder
  4. I've personally used them with good results to shoot wax bullets and also just using the 209 primer to dispatch a few waspers. ..........Widder
  5. Not real sure. When I was given that brass, along with a box of 209 primers and wax bullets, I ask about the special brass and 209 primers and was told that some mounted shooters used them. That's all I know. ..........Widder
  6. True story and real picture. Notice the TWO spoons. They really served him his nanner pudding with TWO spoons. And this was AFTER his big meal. I never seen nobody eat like he does. ..........Widder
  7. MOUNTED shooters also used the .45 Colt/209 primer setup for busting balloons. ..........Widder
  8. Taking $200 out of the pocket of an honest citizen should really curb the crime rates..... NOT! ..........Widder
  9. Marshal, that is a great question. Yes, mostly for personal protection and hitting the target at 50' and less. ..........Widder
  10. Charlie, if you ever want to learn to shoot faster than you thought you could, that's where 'Wasp Practice' comes in handy... I would go after a Wasp nest, but I wouldn't go after a Hornets nest with anything short of a open choked SG. ..........Widder
  11. This public service announcement has been provided free, compliments of the Dynamic Duo. ..........Widder
  12. TN Williams has created a 'wasp' load for his .38 pistol and in conjunction, I have created a 'Wasp' load for my .45 Colt Ruger. We both had .38 brass and .45 brass manufactured to hold the 209 Primers. We both had some paraffin bullets, of which we cut into 1/8" thick pieces, just enough to seal the case. We filled the respective cases about full with 'Walnut tumbling media'. With just the power of the 209 primer, you would be surprised at the potent results.....enough power to decimate a wasp nest and all the wasp on it. TN Williams will shortly add a post with pictures of results. Ya just never know what can happen when 2 greats minds start to thinking..... ..........Widder
  13. And a lot of that is determined by how hard the shooter pulls the trigger..... Everybody knows the harder you pull the trigger the faster the bullet goes. ..........Widder
  14. I agree J Bar. I enjoyed my afternoon (yesterday & today) shooting, although today, I focused more on some center fire pistols. ..........Widder
  15. Three Foot, barrel is 4" long. Shooting distance is 10 yds. ..........Widder
  16. I got one, NIB. Whew, what a dandy of a pistol. This one was once owned by Dr. Bottlestopper, custom pearl pimp grips and an engraved heart on its grip backstrap. You'll love it. ..........Widder
  17. Thanks for all the replies. I mic'd both sights and they are both .402 Yes, it is factory set up for a red dot sight system, and I may put a Holosun GR dot on it. I like green better than red. ..........Widder
  18. I have a semi auto Pistol with a very high front site and very high rear sight. BOTH sights are the same height. The Pistol shoots POA is also POI, which works good for me. QUESTION: If BOTH of the HIGH sights are the same height, will the POA still produce POI if BOTH sights are lowered the same? To help with my inquiry, I use the sights basically recommended by manufacturers with the top of the front sight being level with the top of the rear sight. Thanks. ..........Widder
  19. Right now, 'WE' still have the Supremes on our side. ..........Widder
  20. He IS the #1 liar in all of Tennessee. And that says a lot! ..........Widder
  21. And before I get to old also..... I turn 70 in the spring. Always glad to help someone learn the Marlin 1894 and Henry .22 ..........Widder
  22. I've seen that technique on a few Marlins. Hour glassing or thinning the steel can effect the integrity and strength of the steel. BUT, if you take about 1/2 of the bend out of the loading gate spring, this keeps the integrity of the steel while also 'softening' its tension, allowing easier manipulation of it while pushing ammo thru it. Just another thought to consider when working on the Marlin. ..........Widder
  23. Krazy, If I were running for a political office, I would be incline to hire you for my Public Relations Officer. You have indeed secured your life long friendship status with Barkeep due to your care and concern for his SKB. Red Knee, of Oklahoma fame, uses my special lube on all of his original Winchester 97 shotguns, which has propelled him into probably the Top 5 97 shooters in the country. In his own testimony, he states that he was a NOBODY until he started using the Widder's special lube. After that, he won the Oklahoma speed SG event, the SW Regional speed SG event and then Winter Range (National) speed SG event. You have taken the first giant step into becoming a renown SKB smith when you use that special lube. P.S. - save the spoon for Barkeep. He may want to lick it clean! ..........Widder
  24. Hey bgavin, move to TN, close to me. I just got back from the field out behind my house where I spent the early noon hours blasting away with a couple 9mm pistols and a couple 460 Rowland 1911's. And yes, I have neighbors but nobody complains. And if shooting practice starts to bore you, we can spice it up by trying to get a coyote, groundhog or crow. Life is good in East Tennessee! ..........Widder
  25. I've owned and shot so many .22 rifles and pistols in my life time, that I'm surprised some one doesn't manufacture a 'Widder .22' brand..... Howdy FJT. Just the history of the .22 should take up your whole show. And in modern times, the .22 pistols/revolvers/rifles have never given the shooter more options to acquire their 'dream' .22, although some of our dreams still center around owning one of the classics from Marlin, Winchester, Remington, Mossberg, etc..... Take care of yeself. ..........Widder
