  1. My comment isn't intended to be pro/con Beretta, 1911, etc..... But I will comment on Seldom Seen's post about the cost of switching calibers, gun sizes, etc.... on the P320. As mentioned before, I like BOTH of mine. And SS is correct in the fact that the cost factor of a new gun vs. buying barrel/grip from SIG was the exact reason I bought a whole new pistol. Paying out $350-400 was just too close to the price of a NEW gun and I choose to buy a new P320 in .357 SIG to go with my 9mm. ..........Widder
  2. Bayonetted would be more like being a pin cushion. Lanced would appear to be more like being 'skewered'..... This of course, is just my opinion. ..........Widder
  3. Who is/are your most memorable characters from TV or Big Screen? MIne, from a pure entertaining enjoyment of their character: BARNEY Fife FESTUS Hagen ..........Widder
  4. Lanced hurts more, but it does allow you enough time to chuck a torch before succumbing to the pain..... ..........Widder
  5. I'll be sure to make up some 'special' fireballs for you and do some night shooting. Probably this spring. Side note: Spent the day with Curly Bill Kelly putting the final touches on a Marlin 1894 Cowboy converted to the .45 ACP Its set up to run .45 ACP with anything from a 160 grain lead slug up to the 230 round ball. If I can tweak the ejections of empties a little better, its gonna be a super fine little rifle. ..........Widder
  6. I own two P320's 9mm and .357 SIG. They are great pistols. Mine have been 100% reliable and consistently accurate. I like those SIG so much, I also got me a new P220 Elite in 10mm. Ain't had time to shoot it yet but I expect it to be a hoss. ..........Widder
  7. He not only sang The Imp Dream at special events, charities, etc..... but he also sang it in one of his 'Gomer Pyle, USMC' episodes. Question: Didn't Festus also appear and sing in 'She Wore A Yellow Ribbon'? ..........Widder
  8. Thanks Scarlett. Glad you and Billy the Avenger like em. I like your list of gunsmiths/leathersmiths. Mine would also include: Lassiter Curly Bill Kelly Doc Noper Slick McClade Johnny Meadows ..........Widder
  9. WEEEEE-YU, I love em. Snake Oil George and Creek County Kid do excellent work. I still love my .32 Rugers with Octagon barrels. ..........Widder
  10. Sorry I wasn't there to see you again, JH. Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. And you are right..... those Pards in the Oak Ridge Outlaws are #1. ..........Widder
  11. Bunker Hill was my great, great uncle..... ..........Widder
  12. Not only are the scammers out there, but there are many folks who seem to just sit around, waiting to be scammed. People are so gullible. I won't even answer a 'survey' question on the phone about what radio station I listen too. I normally reply with: "hey, I don't call you at your home asking STUPID questions so don't call me. Get a real job". Then I hang up. ..........Widder
  13. Hey Pards, What surprised me is that I don't have to resize this new stuff. I mic'd the new brass, then resized 5 of them and the diameter was identical. So, no resizing was even required or necessary. ..........Widder
  14. Boon, It'll take you 550 days to collect all that money..... You'll be checking your bank account everyday with anxiety..... It won't be worth the wait..... Send me $78 and I'll tell you a dirty joke. Atleast you'll have a dirty joke to share with friends for the next 550 days..... ..........Widder
  15. I can fit right in on that one..... Thanks. ..........Widder
  16. I've never met any that I can think of. BUT, I once received a Hand Written letter from Bill Jordan. It was in reply to a question I had based on an article in the American Rifleman and Shooting Times. I still have that letter. It was very friendly and cordial, almost like he knew me as a good friend. ..........Widder
  17. Once again, Starline brass has delivered me good, clean pieces of new brass. Last years order of .32 H&R brass required NO pre-preparations. No deburring/chamfering required. I started the reloading process by 'belling' the case mouth and everything worked great. TODAY, I received my latest order of 10mm brass. No deburring/chamfering required. Just 'bell' the case mouth and start reloading. These guys sure know their business. ..........Widder
  18. Big Sage, you are a man after my own heart. Although I am presently without a good .22 centerfire, I love the 22-250 and .220 Swift. But I must admit that your 220 Ackley Improved has to put a smile on a varmint hunters face. My most accurate firearm to date was actually a pistol. XP100 frame and bolt. McMillan black pebble grain XP 100 style stock Shilen match grade stainless heavy barrel, 15", chambered for..... 6mm BR with a tight next chamber. Leopold 6 x 20 (or 24) power scope I have one 100 yard target where I have LESS THAN a 1/4", 5 shot group. And I have a 4 sh
  19. What 40 said, or atleast that is how I remember it also. ..........Widder
  20. Yea, that was a 'testy' one, for sure. I regret the family has disowned me and therefore, I probably won't be eligible for any inheritance..... Anyhow, I can atleast say that my favorite Uncle has great taste in pistols AND wood grips..... ..........Widder
  21. The Sure Hit sights are very popular and there is a probability that you shoot with some folks who have both sizes for you to check out. Either way, I think you will be happy. I don't use a rear sight so therefore, all I want on my rifle is the larger Sure Hit sight. I have them on both my competition Marlins. ..........Widder
  22. Uncle Quail, That's my favorite pistol..... I hope my favorite Uncle is doing well..... ..........Widder
  23. I have a couple and BOTH of them involve Steve (Stephen/Steven) Forrest. My #1 favorite: The Widowmaker #2: MANNON ..........Widder
