  1. I'm sharing a little sadness with my Wire pards. I grew up with a handful of 'buddys'. From bed babies at Church, there was Eddie, Joe, Denny and ME. Later, at the age of 4, my family moved and another 'buddy' became a life long friend..... Charlie. Eddie, Joe, Denny and Charlie were my bestest friends all thru our teen years. School and Church, we were friends. Great friends. Never lied nor cheated one another. Shared secrets about our girlfriends, etc. A couple years back, Denny and Charlie passed away. Then Joe. Yesterday, Eddie pass
  2. YEP, know of Bart. Although he's a good writer, I just never took to his articles as much as I did for Skeeter. Seems like Skeeter had a patent on making you feel like 'you were there' when he told some stories. And sometimes, it could make you feel like some one you knew. Take Care. Hope you have a good shooting season. I'm healing from last August heart surgery and still haven't picked up a SG yet. And of all the gall, Red Knee told me last week that he's gonna 'kick my butt' next time we posse up again. He won't have 'No Mercy' on this old m
  3. Tequila, If you are in a restaurant or bar and have been ask to leave, does that only apply if the owner/manager has ask you to leave. Or, if ANYONE ask you to leave? Just curious. ..........Widder
  4. Billy, I didn't have to opportunity to ever meet Bill Jordan. BUT, I wrote him a respectable letter once about one of his Shooting Times articles concerning the accuracy of the customized Ruger 10/22. And, I also referenced a similar article in the American Rifleman published by the NRA. Bill actually replied with a HAND WRITTEN letter to me. He basically said those yahoo's that do accuracy test for the NRA couldn't hit the broad side of a barn and I should read their articles with that in mind. He also reiterated that his accuracy test
  5. Thats a good one, Sidekick. Gosh, I forgot about Skeeter Skelson and his tales of Dobe Grant...... and of course his 'Me and Joe'. Dobe was apparently Lt.Col Evan Quiros (sp). But no, the Sheriff I'm trying to think of is still aloose inside my brain. Its like Sheriff Jim ? EDIT: I found it. Sheriff Jim Wilson. ..........Widder
  6. Agree. I have read that Ruger plans to produce the 1894. Don't know what configuration, but the 1894 nontheless. Another good option is the Rossi 1892. I like the Henry models with those short, heavy OCTAGON barrels, but I have no experience with them to make a reliable comment. ..........Widder
  7. Highwall, this is a good 'camp fire' topic, of which I will gladly add my memories. I always enjoyed reading of Bob Milek, Rick Jamison, Bill Jordan and there was also a Sheriff that had some great stories in Shooting Times but his name eludes me at this time. Great gun writers and story tellers. They knew their stuff. ..........Widder
  8. At present in Tennessee, our permits are easy to obtain and are for both concealed and open. BUT, the Governor is about to sign a bill that we no longer will have to have a permit for carry. I think it's called 'Constitutional Law'. ..........Widder

  10. EVIL, Call Henry and tell them your situation with the daughter. Often times, they will send you a youth stock for free..... really. If they won't give it to you free, atleast request a dirt cheap price and be sure to let them know its for your daughter. ..........Widder

  15. About the only thing you can find in abundance these days is a bunch of 'Yahoo's running for political offices..... And most of them know how to cure the present pandemic but won't tell anyone till they are in office..... ..........Widder
  16. Happy B'Day Allie. For a long time, I thought her name was 'Allie Mo with no E-damit' Can't help but love er! ..........Widder
  17. Hey Lumpy. YEP. I've owned a couple of 24" in .45 Colt. Both had a polyurathyene type material for the 'limiter'. one was whitish and the other was black. Somewhere in their manufacturing, Marlin decided to stop using them. I've got an 1894 in .45 Colt with a factory 16.25 barrel. It will hold 8 Colt rounds at 1.600 or 11 Cowboy 45 Specials. I don't remember the OAL of the C45S. ..........Widder
  18. Joe, if your 24" inch barrel .45 Marlin ONLY holds 10 rounds, its probably got a LONG (approx 5-6 inch) plastic rod inside your mag tube. Originally, when Marlin started making the 24" 'Cowboy' rifles, they put those rod inside the mag tubes to limit the rounds to only 10. Take off the end cap and you may find that rod, which actually fits inside the spring. Remove it and you'll probably get 12-13 rounds of normally OAL ammo. If there isn't a rod inside, then your mag tube spring is drastically too long. Remember, your spring only needs to be abo
  19. I'm surprise that when she pulled him over for ANY specific reason, why didn't she ask for Back-up before trying to handle the situation alone. I mean, did she pull him over because there was a warrant out for his arrest because of underage firearms possession? If so, she should have requested backup. ..........Widder
  20. Sorri Charlie, but you looked GUILTY. You assaulted his doughnut break..... Personally, I would report him to the folks that hired him (or his security company) AND I would also report him to the BCSO. I don't think they like security guards drawing down on folks without due cause. ..........Widder
  21. If the carrier and the timing is set correctly for the OAL of the cartridge, it can. I have heard of some .45 Marlin's that will handle the Schofield cartridge with no modifications. But, I haven't actually handled one that would reliably feed Schofield or C45S (Cowboy 45 Special) without being modified for them. When shortening the barrel to 18", there are a couple easy mods to help get 10 rounds in your tube: 1. shorten your OAL of your ammo 2. cut out (or dish out) your end cap to allow some of the end of the bullet to fit. 3. shorten y
