  1. I agree with Doc. If you are proficient with a particular technique, then practice it and perfect it for YOUR usage. Your #3 is misleading. A really fast SC can double up on a discharge. Its been done..... and I got it on video. 10 shots on steel in 1.79 seconds..... but shots 7 & 8 from the Left and Right pistols discharged simultaneously. Actually, the 10 shots only took about 1.35 seconds. The rest of the time was the draw from holsters. ..........Widder
  2. For me, a couple memories stand out: 1. About 3 years back, a shooter was having trouble with his technique on his 97. He was loading over the top and engaging the targets in a Left to Right sequence. I told him to try engaging the targets in a Right to Left sequence because his present technique was making him 'chase the loading port' for each shot. He actually decided to change to the R to L technique in the middle of a big match and came up to me after the match to thank me, stating that he had 5 good stages without a single SG bobble, etc...... by going R to L. Made me feel good. 2. About 8-10 years back, I was told by one of our top SASS shooters that my 'grab 2 and loading from the right' would never help me improve my shooting times, etc. He stated that 'over the top' was the best way to run a 97. Maybe for him and others, but not for me. 3. And then there is Red Knee. A total stranger who has become a great friend. The 1st time we met was in Louisiana at Slick McClade's. 'Hell Fire' match. When I saw Red Knee run his 97 on Side Match day, I complimented him and ask where he was from......."Oklahoma" he says. I said..... "You come from Oklahoma just to shoot this match"? He said...... "No, I came from Oklahoma to beat you in Speed 97 side match". Red Knee is a monumental man. He has a great spirit about him and I would venture to say that everyone that knows him, likes and respects him. Again, he is a very good friend and I cherish the memory of the 1st time we met. ..........Widder
  3. Creeker, Down South, we would say you were a 'caution'. P.S. - loved that post. ..........Widder
  4. Agree with HC. I also prefer 18.5". ..........Widder
  5. Contact Ruger. They might sell him what he needs. ..........Widder
  6. Its my understanding that when a club is sponsoring the State Match, its because SASS has approved and granted that particular club the right to host that match. Sooooooo, that club has to follow guidelines/rules within the premise of that approval from SASS. To deny shooters access to that match which goes beyond SASS approval would negate the match..... if I understand it correctly. ..........Widder
  7. I'm rooting for Iron Cowboy. He's a good kid, good shooter and hard posse worker. ..........Widder
  8. I try not to get airborne on the ATV. But, I do have a nice array of LED lights on my ATV and can see for a distance, way out yonder. And I have to turn them off when approaching other ATV riders because they are bright. Makes em really nice for night ridin. ..........Widder
  9. ....... and that gives you plenty of time to devise a plan to whoop up on TW. Plus, you're gonna have to come up with something to counter his chicky foot curse. You, and the rest of the Regional participants, know that ole TW is mixing up some kinda elixir to put a curse on his competition. Just the other day, he called me and ask if I had any 'crow blood' or owl feathers. I told him he used up all the crow blood last year at the Nationals. But, I could get him some small bone dust from a female Jurassic 'Raptor' if he thought it might help him. ..........Widder
  10. Congratulations Doc to you and your Daughter. That is a worthy accomplishment. ..........Widder
  11. Mister Badly......... YOU DA MAN! Jedi Outlaw! Looks like you got that rifle honed in. Are you sure you ain't got one of them itty-bitty lasers with laser guided bullets. Or is it the Widdermatic? ..........Widder
  12. How many State Match clubs are gonna tell Deuce or Lassiter that they are not eligible to visit their clubs for a State match? Or will clubs pick and choose WHO can/can't attend based on popularity? How about those valuable out of state vendors? You gonna restrict folks like Scarlet Darlin from the Carolina's from visiting the Louisiana State match and bringing her vendor services? Folks better be cautious in creating these guidelines because the situation it causes could snowball into becoming a future disaster for some State matches. ..........Widder
  13. Me thinks he's slept at the Holiday Inn Express............ OR, been on a previous posse with TN Williams and Widder. ..........Widder
  14. Another thought to sweeten this conversation: Example: Lets say 'The Cracker Crew' has supported the Texas State match for 5 years or more, paid their money and were VERY WELCOME participants. Now, in 2023, they are not welcome because they live in Florida. Makes no sense to me. Many 'Out of State' shooters visit MANY of the state matches across the country. They buy motor homes, big trucks, etc..... to travel and shoot with friends, year after year. Don't create a new rule or guideline to forbid those folks the opportunity to play on your playground. Just 2 more cents of my thinking! ..........Widder
  15. Howdy Possum. Right now, my thinking is that first come, first served. But, I'm eager to read the post on this thread to see if my thinking is tainted. Good topic. ..........Widder
  16. ST. Judes, eh? Well, put me down for a $100 donation..... and I won't even be at that Sunday match. And while I'm at it, lets see if we can squeeze $100 bucks out of ole big mouth, tight pockets, rattlesnake man TN Williams for a good cause. He's so tight, ole George Washington squinches his eyeballs cause its been so long since he's seen daylight. ..........Widder
  17. NOPE. Barkeeper drug me into this snake pit first. I'm innocent of voluntary participation. ..........Widder
  18. I don't know how I got drug into this topic. I don't like snakes.....none! ..........Widder
  19. Truth is, TW crawled up close to that big rattler and when it struck out at him for a nice bite, ole TW, armed with only a pair of pliers, yanked out one of the fangs when that old Rattler opened his mouth. The other fang snapped down on the plier handle and broke off. It was merely Childs play for TW to tie up a toothless rattler and poise for this pix. True story. Hey, ya can't make this stuff up. ..........Widder
  20. Indeed! You ladies are doing a great service which is to be commended. ..........Widder
  21. AO, No doubt, this thread has merit. Anytime a good conversation can generate ideas, etc..... that might help the game is always good. Basically, changing up shooting order can be beneficial. And when given the opportunity, I also prefer to start with rifle. I'm not in favor of being told which direction to run a sweep, as some have mentioned. Another thing I really don't understand is WHY can't rifle be last on some stages. Our timers are sensitive enough and unless we are shooting inside a building, rifle shots should be registering on the timers that we use. The TO just needs to remember to hold it correctly. Good topic. EDIT: but I must admit, until I can start shooting clean and running sub 20's, stage shooting order really doesn't bother me. ..........Widder
  22. He talks just like James Bond. ..........Widder
  23. I thought EVERYONE knows that a handy man tape measure is always different than the manufacturers tape measures by about an inch or less. Not only fridges, but stoves and dish washers also. And please don't ask me how I know. ..........Widder
