  1. Do any of you have a 'pet' load you prefer in your 10mm.


    I plan to get a SIG P220 in 10mm. There is plenty data in the manuals but I'm wondering if any Wire Pards might have a good PET load to share.


    If my PM box is full, feel free to email me at:





    Much thanks,



  2. Good Post, J Bar.


    I was wondering why the OP had ruled out a Marlin.


    Its not like they can't run 10 shots in under 2 seconds, with proper mods and tuning.


    And its not like the Marlin can't run thousands of rounds and still be tough as an anvil.


    I like the 73's and 92's. But if a person is looking for a rifle, ya owe it to yeself to also check out a couple Marlins.




  3. If I remember correctly:


    2 years ago, Ohio State lost a home game and finished the season with a Natl Championship


    Last year, Alabama lost a home game and finished the season with a Natl Championship.


    This year, Clemson lost a home game and finished the season with a Natl Championship.



    Vegas will probably post odds on this happening, or not happening, again.




  4. Congrats to Clemson and all their fans, supporters, etc...


    Bama played a good game but they seem kinda 'lack luster'.


    I'm not any kinda football wizard, but I felt like their offence was missing Kiffin (and I'm not a Kiffin fan).




  5. Thanks EVERYONE.


    I checked out the website info and although it appears that their specialty is 'engraving and checkering', I will probably contact them about 'stippling'.


    Thanks again.




  6. I'm with Rooster on this one. I own the DVDs and have watched it several times.


    My own family is part of a famous feud. If you go to certain parts of the southern highlands of Scotland some folks will say, "Feuding like the [my name] and Colquhouns." We feuded for 400 years and killed a lot more of each other than did the Hatfields and McCoys! The king even had to step in between us several times.


    Was your feud over something worthwhile like a pig?




  7. So.......you want laser cut precision irregularities


    Howdy Wyatt.


    I couldn't think of a better description although stippling does have a specific 'design'.


    Anyhow, there is a difference between stippling and checkering.




  8. That was interesting.


    I wonder how many of them had serious back problems later in life..... plus I wonder how old some of them lived.


    That kind of work would probably kill me before lunch time..... :o




  9. Thanks PAT...yes, that is what I refer to as 'stippling'.


    Checkering is an 'organized' pattern where stippling has no set pattern.


    Larsen and Chief Rick: Thanks for the recommendation.




  10. Who does good laser 'stippling' on wood?


    If ya got any good recommendations, post em please.


    If ya got any that I need to stay away from, send me a PM.






  11. I like Costner in his movies, but I agree.


    Costner doesn't carry a 'character' like Duvall does. Of course, this is just my opinion.


    I liked that mini series but it did drag on somewhat.


    Besides, my boss (before I retired), is a Hatfield. She married into that same 'Hatfield' blood line. It made watching the mini series a little more interesting.




  12. Crockett was there because he was promised a role in the new government of the republic,, he was seeking a fresh start after things in Tenn soured for him.

    As to his heroic stand, in reality he and his men (what was left), ran into the mission and sought "sanctuary" not to be critical I would have too........

    the Mexican soldiers dragged them out and Crockett was presented to Santa Ana who ordered him immediately executed.

    he was run thru by one of the Mexican officers.


    as to the men knowing what was going on, they were until the Mexicans were over the wall convinced Fannon then later Houston himself was coming with

    a relief force.


    PS anyone firing a weapon any weapon let alone a cannon while under a white flag is no soldier, and deserves no praise


    Praise or not, if it actually occurred, I don't think Travis was looking for praise or admiration.

    Heck, I was just commenting on the movie.


    Anyhow, the story of the Alamo has been told in a handful of ways. So how do we know the real details of what we see from Hollywood. As mentioned above, there are stories of Davy Crockett's death in various manners, even taken back to Mexico.


    Do we really know if Crockett pulled out his fiddle and played one evening that helped detour a cannon barrage? Hollywood sure made it look nice.




  13. Why would someone of Davy Crockett's reputation, experience, etc..... ever succumb to such a task unless he truly believed in the cause with a lot of respect for the man in charge...Travis.


    Crockett and his fellow Tennesseans knew what was going on. And they must have had some respect for Travis to 'bet their lives' on his decision to make a stand at the Alamo.


    My uneducated guess is that Travis must have been one heck of a man who displayed leadership with authority, yet also deserving of respect of those who stood with him at the Alamo.


    Doesn't sound like a jerk to me.


    Besides, when I watched the movie and he fired that cannon during the white flag episode, I was already thinking the same thing as I would have done. I would have induced more of a 'guerrilla' fighting tactics against the Mexican army, but ya still got to admire that tactic of defiance.
