  1. I don't have a method but I have saying: "Never let an old friend be forgotten". ..........Widder
  2. If you want to experience a true stampede and get trampled on, put a TV show on with those Chippendale men and watch the Bunkhouse Boss go ballistic running over you getting to the TV set. ..........Widder
  3. Dan, I bought my first 9422 sometime in the early 70's for about $103. In 1993, I bought a NEW one for about $300 for my new born daughter. She is now 28 and although that rifle still looks brand new (of which I still have the original box), it sits in the back of my safe. She has shot it a few times but basically has never been 'dinged', scratched, etc..... On the other hand, my 2 and 4 year old Henry rifles have been shot a lot. But my Golden Boy Youth has been babied by me and still looks new. ..........Widder
  4. The thing to consider about the 9422 is replacement parts, in particular... the stock. Some of them have very pretty wood. With a Henry, replacement stocks are readily available from Henry..... and cheap. Bang it up and replace the wood as you please. The 9422, LN or LNIB, is probably worth close to $1000. A new Henry... $300-350. ..........Widder
  5. I'll help pay for a few politicians to make the trip..... one way! ..........Widder
  6. I have limited experience with the Glock and Beretta. And some experience with the Walther PPQ. But I have some reasonable experience with the P320, in both 9mm and 357 SIG caliber. I would choose the SIG. I did choose the SIG. I carry the SIG. ..........Widder
  7. AW... the Enchantress's will probably sell and put some real $$$ in her pocket. Enchantress #3 is destined to go to Curly Bill Kelly, in Harriman, TN. Enchantress #4 is destined to go to Red Knee in Oklahoma. Heaven knows he needs a good one. Enchantress #7 and 11 are the IAC Cowboy models with low serial numbers. Real nice 97's. And expensive! ..........Widder
  8. Enough to buy a couple Banana Splits and a new pair of walking shoes. Obviously, she doesn't recognize my real value. ..........Widder
  9. I told my wife that SHE needed to start selling some of her useless stuff. I woke up the next morning with a price marked on my forehead..... ..........Widder
  10. Brings to mind: 'What would Ben Cartwright do'? ..........Widder
  11. Like many of you, I have 'stuff'. Guns, a real nice truck, new ATV, etc..... I only have the wife, who don't give squat about my 'stuff'. And we have one daughter. Her husband is a shooter and hunter. Anyhow, I decided a couple years back that I was not gonna let age dictate what I do with my 'stuff'. With past and present heart situation, I could live 18 days or 18 years longer. I will keep my stuff, use my stuff, and have fun with my stuff. And if I decide to sell or rid my life of anything, it WILL NOT be dictated by my age or health.
  12. Dan, The 9422 is an excellent rifle. I've owned about 1/2 dozen of them and presently just have only one. For speed competition, its hard to beat a slicked up, modified Henry lever .22 Continue to get well and enjoy the game/sport. ..........Widder
  13. I wasn't aware that SASS has a rimfire 'division'. On the other hand, there are 'categories' that allow some young folks to use the .22 rifle. For those shooters, indeed the 9422 is legal. Some clubs also allow the .22 rifle for adult shooters, especially during these times of centerfire ammo and reloading component shortages. ..........Widder
  14. Another option: don't use a bead. None of my competition 97's have a bead. And they all have 18.50" barrels. Just a thought. ..........Widder
  15. Pat, I was in Orlando in 69. They also had a group of 'Professional' barracks inspectors that were on a leave of absence from H3LL. ..........Widder
  16. Have you ever wondered WHY Marine barracks are ground level? When the Gunny SGT throws a recruit out the window, they only have to fall 5 feet. Know why the Navy barracks are built 3 stories high? Cause WE can fly! ..........Widder
  17. In your neck of the woods, ya got Three Cut. In Ohio, ya got Lassiter. BOTH are excellent smiths. If you want the same work, but with an octagonal barrel, call Snake Oil George in Oklahoma. ..........Widder
  18. I've often said that God gave Angels wings. He gave us chocolate. The donut is an added blessing. ..........Widder
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
