  1. Some companies perform classified work. In so doing, once an employee is going to leave the company, the company gets them out the door quickly. Your dismissal should warrant your unemployment benefits so take advantage of them, plain and simple. Congratulations on your retirement. I think you will enjoy it just as well on Feb 3 as you would on April 17. ..........Widder
  2. Years back, when I was much younger and starting to get into Varmint hunting here in E.TN (varmints are groundhogs and crows), I bought a 22-250. I was learning A Lot from an experienced shooter about reloading, etc. I was telling him about such and such powders that would give me 3600-3800 fps velocities from my 22-250. He was explaining to me a more important aspect of good shooting wasn't velocities as much as it is ACCURACY. Then he says..... "Mike, that groundhog out at 200 yards don't really care if that bullet is traveling 3000 fps or 3800 fps when he gets hit...it will
  3. My apologies to the OP if this gets too far off the topic, but I wanted to add one more thing about the Marlin 1894. These are good rifles... period. Strong and reliable. From the factory, some of them need some special attention to help them function better. BUT, a good many of them will function much better with just some minor smoothing and spring changes. EXAMPLE: if your lever is hard to open and close, this can be remedied by polishing the plunger hole in the lever with about 1500-2000 grit paper. And then polish up the plunger to slide easy in and out of that hole. T
  4. Howdy Rooster. The details of modifying the 1894 into the 'Widdermatic' is covered on Marauders website, along with some other GREAT stuff for many types of rifles and pistols. There are quite a few Cowboys who have modified their Marlins to be like this. Cheyenne Culpepper has modified one of his Marlins for the .38 and one of our Wire Pards, Warden Callaway, has modified one of his Marlins into the C45S cartridge. Billy The Avenger also modified his .38 Marlin and it is super slick. I think his wife,TACO, uses it but not sure. With Billy, you never know what he's gonna pu
  5. You live in a cemetery? How strange. ..........Widder
  6. Thanks for posting Dan. Here's another video showing a wide range of OAL ammo on the table being put into a WIddermajik, PLUS, a nice .38 Widdermatic which belongs to a good friend in Michigan. ..........Widder
  7. Could it be....... naw, it couldn't be...... A 22-250 Improved or a 220 Swift Improved? ..........Widder
  8. I would probably give St.Judes some of it. And I would give the Shriners hospital some. And some would go to the local Childrens hospital. No doubt I would try to help relatives with unexpected medical bills and NEEDS. But I doubt I would start buying trucks and homes for everyone. I would move out to a more secluded place with some good land, to shoot on of course. Quite frankly, I'm happy with what I have. No doubt I would buy a couple new 'toys', but I think one of my priorities would be to hire a maid to help my wife with house chores, etc. And of course, I wo
  9. Hope you are doing well, Chance. That's nice of the Chronicle to do. ..........Widder
  10. J BAR, I use #9 and Power Pistol in my .357 SIG. Both powders give high velocity performance and good accuracy in my SIG P320. ..........Widder
  11. No. But it would convince folks you are a nutty Baptist who believes in dancing..... ..........Widder
  12. That new GP100 in .44 SPL is a great looking pistol. ..........Widder
  13. Thanks Lumpy and Duffield. I'll have to check out the BLUE DOT data. ..........Widder
  14. WOWIE x 2. Beautiful rifle Warden. I'm glad you got it and glad you posted the pix. Congrats to you (and Mary, of course). ..........Widder
  15. 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: widder1894@icloud.com Much thanks, ..........Widder
  16. 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. ..........Widder
  17. 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. ..........Widder
  18. So far, 2017 hasn't been a good year if you're a Liberal from Alabama..... It might be a good time to buy a Lottery ticket because your luck has got to get better..... ..........WIdder
  19. If I were a Liberal from Alabama, I think I would buy a Lottery ticket. Sooner or later, your luck has gotta get better..... ..........Widder
  20. 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). ..........Widder
  21. Have bottles serve the Clemson fan a Shirley Temple. The Alabama fan can have a shot of Jack black. ..........Widder
