  1. I agree Clay. MIDWAY has always been one of my favorite movies with Heston, Ford, etc..... About the only interesting part of the new Midway was when the Japanese recovered 2 of our pilot crew members and tied weights to them and threw them overboard alive. I have read that this actually happened to those guys. ..........Widder
  2. RED thru and thru..... We have a few varmints that are open season, year round, NO limit. If I'm not mistaken, coyote's are on that list. No minimum caliber requirements. Day or night killings have no restrictions. Night hunts are not uncommon. ..........Widder
  3. My comment isn't meant to sound negative, although it might to some Pards. But if some clubs change their shooting format and limit the shooting to 60-75% of what we are use to (10-10-4+), there will be some shooters who ain't gonna travel 1.5+ hours to a match just to shoot a total of 60 rounds. Some clubs the past couple years have started shooting 6 stages a day, instead of 5, because the paying customers wanted MORE shooting, not less. This is just a thought to be considered. Folks, when we all run out, we all run out. We'll just have to weather T
  4. I think the EMS employees would treat the kid without parental permission under the 'Good Samaritan Law'. ..........Widder
  5. Consider your options. Going to jail for protecting yourself and your dog might actually be a small price to pay. Would 12 jurors actually convict you of a crime for killing an attacking coyote? It would be your word against the coyote as to who started the fight..... If you want to carry some protection spray, I think the Bear spray and the Hornet spray are good suggestions. ..........Widder
  6. Seek out OUTLAW GAMBLER here on the Wire or in the Merchants Corner. 97's are his business. There are top shooters who use the Winchester and there are top shooters who use the IAC. I only use the IAC brand, of which a lot of us NON-Top shooters also use. I have a couple 03's and 04's of which have served me well. I also have the CB models (2 of them)and they, in my opinion, are the best made IAC 97's for Cowboy usage. Again, give Outlaw Gambler a holler. He might be your best bet. ..........Widder
  7. Because he was the Rifleman, he could wear anything he wanted..... ..........Widder
  8. Good topic Snakebite. And good point. I've got 2 friends who recently went 'dry'. Both are Cowboy shooters. One was totally dry and the other went dry with their ammo manufactoring supplies and those who bought ammo from them could no longer shoot due to 'no ammo'. The biggest culprit seems to be primers. ..........Widder
  9. I agree with CC. It looks like a Navy watch cap. ..........Widder
  10. Me and you both! I guess others can blame US for our representatives..... Its obvious WE won't get the credit. ..........Widder
  11. I would have told her to "Shut that hole in your face, you ignorant slut". Then I would have added: "This truck belongs to my friend, who is an ederly Black man and has asked me to do some grocery shopping for him because at this time he is unable to get out" ..........Widder
  12. Howdy FJT. 1. Clint's S&W model 29 2. Tom Selleck's rifle in Quigley 3. Duke's model 92 Clints model 29 and Tom's rifle were the center of attention in those movies. Duke's model 92 was never the center of attention in his movies because the Duke hisowndangself was always the center of attention. I think the manner in which he wore his pistol was also iconic. He seem to be a pretty fast draw also. Hope you are doing well my friend. ..........Widder
  13. Thank you, Yusta. And Happy 10/22 Day to you also. I might add that we could also include Kid Rich and wish him a Happy 10/22 day also. I managed to get a NICE Boyd's 10/22 laminate stock from TN Williams this past summer. I'm contemplating building me a 5th 10/22, probably something from KIDD. Since my heart surgery back in August, I haven't shouldered a rifle or SG and probably won't for a couple more months. Healing from the surgery is slow and the nerves in my chest are very tender. Hope you are doing well. ......
  14. Charlie, that 2nd pic looks like he's camping out up in the Smoky's along those streams. ..........Widder
  15. Agree. My dad was 16 when Pearl was bombed. Before he turned 18, his mother signed for him to join the Navy. He was on the USS Blackhawk. I don't know where he was when an explosion occurred near him and put shrapnel in his back and the Navy discharged him on a disability. Can you imagine a 16 year old TODAY going into the military under war like conditions? FOUR-EYE BUCK: Salute to Adone Calderone. And thanks for posting that story. ..........Widder
  16. And when you croak, you surely don't want anyone pouring creamer on your wee wee. ..........Widder
  17. I've only had the opportunity to shoot the "Hell Fire" match twice and BOTH times were fun. I really enjoyed the folks, the hospitality, and the match scenarios were great for this GF. Wish I could make it this year but some 'physical impairments' are keeping me close to the Bunkhouse this year. Slick McClade is a great host. Ifn ya ain't ever been there, ya really need to tighten up ye spurs, saddle up and hit the road to Louisiana. Who knows, ya might even make a life long friend there. I did. ..........Widder
  18. A lot of fools don't have any money. ..........Widder
  19. I've overcome my prejudices and judgement on people by just not liking anyone and everyone..... Actually and honestly, I figure many of the folks I meet and get to know probably don't like me and I've accepted that. It helps me to get along better with everyone knowing they have a keen sense of perception..... ..........Widder
  20. Savvy Jack, Your #4: you have to take into consideration the integrity of the brass. There could very well be a 'strong', more resilient thin brass that would actually make it 'better' for its intended purpose. In other words, the thinner base of the .44 mag could actually be stronger, or have greater integrity, than the thicker brass of the .44-40 depending upon how its made, the inclusion of other alloys, etc...... ..........Widder
  21. If I had a carrier problem, I would decide on what the problem might actually be and then get IT fixed accordingly before I would buy a new carrier, stainless or otherwise. 1. If the washer has worked loose and/or fallen off, (and maybe lost the plunger stud), I would get a new plunger stud kit from Slick McClade. If you've still got the plunger stud, you can use a small portion of a ball point pin and secure it back with a 1/8" E-clip. 2. if you timing ramp has worn and is bad, send it to Gunner. If you want your rifle to be reliable with short OAL
  22. No, its not that simple because you ask 2 questions. First, you ask how do folks determine the strength of a case. Secondly, you ask your readers to choose the case they felt was the .44 magnum, of which I did not choose any of them. Web thickness can help to determine the strength of a case, but it doesn't tell me which case was the .44 mag because the manufacturers 'specs' for their brass can vary depending upon caliber. Just because a case is headstamped as 'Magnum' doesn't mean it has a thicker web than a case without the magnum designation. I
  23. Of the FEW folks who might subject the 'strength of case' into their reloading process, I would say its determined by reputation because 999 out of 1000 reloaders probably don't know how strong their brass might be. BUT, one of the determining factors of that reputation is the number of usages a reloader can get before the case starts showing signs of weakness. As for actual strength of a case, I 'think' its determined by the thickness of the web. I shoot a lot of HOT .45 Colt loads but I don't use .45 Colt brass. I use .454 Casull brass that has been t
