  1. Mgmt never understands and at oft times, looks down their noses at US working class folks. Like one Christmas, our office had a party where everyone brought a dish from home with a favorite 'recipe'. Well, I happen to have an ole oriental recipe that I thought would really enlighten everyones holiday spirits. During the luncheon, a couple folks enquired as to the flavorful dish I brought from home and I told them it was...'Tennessee Long Tail Rabbit'. They said..... "Tennessee Long Tail Rabbit. Never heard of it". I looked at them and said..... "CAT". They just don't hav
  2. Ignore all you want..... But Calico Mary is still looking for a new Bunkhouse location, probably in the Southeast, Ohio or Indiana. ..........Widder
  3. An 'out of battery' is a VERY RARE occurrence in an 1894 Marlin. And allow me to explain why. First of all, when the lever is moved downward to cock the hammer (and eject empties and feed a new live round), the lever actually moves the firing pin rearward. So there is no part of the firing pin extending thru the firing pin hole. If the trigger can be activated and cause the hammer to start dropping while the action is open, the hammer will do one of two things: 1. it will either pop up in under the bolt into the recess and cause the action to lock up until the hammer is manual
  4. Howdy Pat. Are those 3 days the time spent making their cocoon? ..........Widder
  5. I think they do when they are in the cocoon building phase. but after that, your guess is as good as mine. ..........Widder
  6. Forty, I didn't know they 'dated' when you were in High School. I thought you 'courted' back then..... ..........Widder
  7. I can't tell from the top one but the lower picture is definitely female... probably DDD. ..........Widder
  8. But you have a 'special' rifle..... ..........Widder
  9. Howdy Bronc. No need to apologize. Its winter time and these type thread help warm our blood and 'jaw' a little. Besides, now everyone knows that Rye is cheap and eats butterless popcorn..... p.s. - I use to shoot Ruger .45's in 7.5" barrels. TERRIBLE. Then switched to shooting the C45S in Sheriff model Vaqueros for about 4 years. Then last summer, I switched to shooting Ruger Vaq. in .32 H&R, along with my Marlin 1894 in .32 H&R. Love the combination. ..........Widder
  10. Thanks PR. That is good jerky. Besides, Rye's popcorn was plain..... no butter. (he's cheap). How about lets have a 'Cheap Category' for those Pards who share unbuttered popcorn..... ..........Widder (Jerky lover)
  11. Howdy Dee Mak. I have in my notes that I worked on a Marlin for Dee Mak last July. PLUS, I also have a note that its problem was "rounds rolling left and hitting high on the chamber entrance". But, I don't have any other notes pertaining to any work I did, etc.... Naturally, I am curious, but is this the rifle I checked out last summer? Thanks P.S. - sending you a PM with serial number info. ..........Widder
  12. But SLIM, what category would there be for someone shooting an unaltered Colt buntline in .45 in their left hand, and a Ruger 'SASS' Vaquero in the right hand? ..........Widder
  13. No horse shoes? Maybe they took em off the dead horses and used as needed on the live ones. ..........WIdder
  14. I wonder what category Wild Bill Hickok would shoot with his mighty 36's (I think that was his caliber of choice). My 'guess' is that the caliber & power factors of the shooter are deemed no more important than how tall or short they are. Pards like PWB and The Wild Bunch (TWB) can probably answer your question as well as anyone. p.s. - RYE, I'll take a bag of that popcorn... ..........Widder
  15. From Monty Python, according to Google. Don't know if its from any JW movie though. ..........Widder
  16. She was hot. That was very enjoyable. ..........Widder
  17. Kris, Your 'sophisticated' friends probably don't go to Super Bowl parties..... they go to the Super Bowl..... ..........Widder
  18. I choose my friends carefully also. Problem is, some of those folks that I would be friends with also choose their friends carefully, which leaves me with fewer friends..... Well, enjoy your jail time and welcome back to the Long Branch. ..........Widder
  19. Shrimp. and I would eat em with the salsa/chips/chili that Joe and Chili brought..... ..........Widder
  20. Its not a secret that I have mentioned to numerous Pards that I plan to slow down on my Marlin work for a couple reasons: 1. I want to have more free time during my retirement. 2. Continue my work on the .22 Henry 'Soft Stroke' and give super fast turn around time. Yes, I plan to slow down on Marlin work but not totally shut it out, especially if someone needs a really fast fixit job. And right now, I will be training another gunsmith in a couple weeks on the intricate workings of the Marlin. He plans to extend his gunsmith services into some Marlin work during the next cou
  21. One of my favorites. I try to watch Perry Mason episodes every day at 9 am and 11:30 pm on a couple different cable channels. I'm always telling my wife how beautiful Ms. Hale looked. She was a classic. RIP 'Della' and God bless. ..........Widder
  22. Church Key, I don't have any of the Dillon equipment but I have already been loading up some 'test' ammo for my new SIG P220 in 10mm. I hope to chronograph AND do some accuracy testing when the weather gets a little better. Right now, I have 12 loads to test in the 165 grain and 180 grain bullets. My test powders are: Longshot CFE AA #7 AA #9 Power Pistol On some bullets (but not all) I'm testing the low end AND the high end load data to give me a better indication of what my SIG and the 10mm is capable. Brass is new Starline and primers are Federal LP Mag.
