  1. HEY RINGER, I understand YOU are now producing some coated bullets. Yes/No? What are your thoughts and experiences? In the past few years, ALL my bullet purchases have been from RINGER or Clarks (which is 'Clarks bullets by SCARLETT ).... Scarlett Darlin in S.C. I am SUPER happy with both bullet makers. ..........Widder
  2. Manatee was the 1st JEDI GF of the YEAR due to his efforts in getting BPGF/FCGF category recognized in some bigger SASS matches back when. I think it was 2009. He's paid his dues, and then some. ..........Widder
  3. And another classic that had some of the best ideas and creations is.......... Adirondack Jack ..........Widder
  4. I had an art teacher in high school name..... are you ready for this: Beaunielue (Be u Knee Lou) I was told that she had a sister name....... Cowdeana (Cow Dean A) ..........Widder
  5. Pat, I haven't tried those bullets. Right now, my favorites are Speer Gold Dot bullets, although I do have some XTP stuff. ..........Widder
  6. Rooster, I try to limit mine within 50 yards. And I even have a Scorpion Reflex sight w/laser attached..... Most of my .22's even wear nice 3x9 scopes. ..........Widder
  7. Hey DOC. Its speaks highly of a man when his acquaintances can speak so fond of him even when they haven't seen/heard from him in a few years. We do miss you. I hate to hear of your health situation with your hands. I hope proper Dr. care can help get you well. God Bless. ..........Widder
  8. Well now, I'm starting to get jealous cause it looks like EVERYBODY has met Allie Mo ......... but me. It just ain't right..... ..........Widder
  9. Howdy NOZ. I know the feeling. I load up my non-SASS .45 Colt ammo with heavy 250-300 grain slugs and a healthy dose of LilGun. As I have mentioned before on the Wire, these hot .45 Colt loads in a 16.25" 1894 Marlin generate power levels equal to the .454 Casull in a 6-7" pistol barrel. And its puts a whoopin on my shoulder. ..........Widder
  10. I miss them ALL, also. Sixgun Shorty always had some great input on the topic of Colts. I know very little about Colt brand firearms, but I always found SS post very informative. Buds dad is Black Jack Traven. Super nice feller (as is Bud) and always made me feel like a good friend when we 'jaw'd on the Wire. Manatee is in a league of his own. I always felt kinda 'honored' just talking to him in person and shooting on a posse with him at KY State and GOA. Back in 2009, the great Leviathan bet me a dollar (one dollar) that he would beat me at GOA. Well, he didn't. I forgot about that $1 bet until shortly thereafter, I received a dollar bill with a note glued to it that read: "Widder Dun Whupped Me Lak A Rinted Mule! Guns of August 2009 ....... Manatee I still have that dollar bill. Phantom is a great Pard. I enjoyed talking with him on the Wire and on the phone a couple times. And if I were to email him today, he would promptly reply with a very cordial greeting. And Doc Shapiro probably helped more folks with technique info than anyone I'm aware. These Pards, and others, are often missed and their knowledge, skills, and help are held in high value to a lot of us. Another great gunsmith not on the Wire much these days is Fireball. There are others whose names elude me right now, but I hope other Wire Pards will chime in with other names. ..........Widder
  11. Why didn't the Big 10 Champion get invited? Otherwise, I'll pick Alabama and Clemson in the finals. ..........WIdder
  12. What will be the more popular baby names of 2017? Here are some NEW thoughts: Trumper Comey Mattis (yes, even for a first name) ..........Widder
  13. BONUS try: the WHITE GRIP pistol Top row, upper right pistol with the diamond mark on the grip. The Buntline, third row. ..........Widder
  14. Faygo Kid, I ask about the implants a few years back and was told that I would not be a good candidate for those. I was told that the nerves at my ear drum are 'shot', which is the reason for my word recognition problem. ..........Widder
  15. MAX, my wife, daughter and I were at Red Lobster a while back. After my daughter ordered her meal and the waiter left the table, I ask my daughter why she only ordered a "piece of shrimp and a salad"? She said.... "Daddy, I ordered their PEACE BRANDY SHRIMP and SCALLOPS". YEP, word recognition can sometimes be humorous. Just make sure nobody tells any 'duck' jokes around you..... ..........Widder
  16. The VA supplies mine. They are the PHONAK brand. The body of the hearing aid is behind my ear with the molded ear piece inside, as close to my ear drum as possible. I'm not only hindered by most frequencies & decibels but also word recognition. Even when my volume is up high, over 60% of words I hear sound garbled. ..........Widder
  17. Although I shoot the IAC 97, I would strongly suggest you get an SKB, and have a reputable SxS gunsmith set it up for you. ..........Widder
  18. Howdy Jabez. Although I don't keep a 'record' of group size, I do keep some of the more important targets that show both good and bad grouping of certain powders. This helps me from buying the 'inaccurate' stuff and wasting my time in the future. One other thing I have done with my 'Pairs' of pistols is Chronograph EACH pistol. I have one set of Ruger Vaq. that actually have a velocity difference of about 25 fps with identical loads. And my Chronograph results were consistent with varies powders and bullet weights. One pistol just has a higher velocity average than the other pistol. ..........Widder
  19. I normally put a card inside the box showing bullet weight/type and Powder charge. EXAMPLE for my .45 Colt stuff: 300 Speer GDHP 18.5 LilGun EXAMPLE ONLY ! I also keep a folder for each caliber showing Chrono results, date, temperature.... and I also distinguish Rifle or Pistol and barrel length....etc... ..........Widder
  20. Neuse, send you a PM. For others, my email is: widder1894@icloud.com Thanks P.S. - my inbox stays full because RED KNEE keeps sending me PM's wanting more 1897 techniques and info..... ..........Widder
  21. Howdy WW. I will send you a PM and you can reply to that PM. Looking forward to hearing from you. ..........Widder
  22. Howdy Pat Riot. If you decide on either the 92 or the Marlin 94, either will serve your needs in digesting HOT loads. I have a 16.25" Marlin 1894 in .45 Colt that I shoot some HOT stuff out of. I took some .454 Casull brass and trimmed em back to .45 Colt length. The .454 Casull brass uses Small Rifle Primers. Using LilGun powder and 250-300 grain slugs, my 16.25" Marlin will produce velocities and power equal to a hot .454 Casull in a 7" barrel. I mention this because if you use .45 Colt brass and start to experience split brass, you'll have a good option in using .454 Casull brass trimmed back to .45 Colt length. I have found the .454 brass to be little bit tougher, especially down in the web area, which is one of the reasons for it being made to use Small Primers (rifle or pistol). I prefer Rifle. Good luck in your choices. ..........Widder
  23. Yep, part of my bad. back to the topci: Buds OP has merit. Maybe someone alittle up the chain of command might check it out. ..........Widder
  24. I'll add another thought to that. A fast runner enters a big track meet. This is a rank point track meet. The contest consist of 5 individual laps around the track. Each lap is timed and runners rest alittle between each lap before the whole group starts another lap. Runner #1 burns on the first 4 laps while the rest of the runners walk fast. Runner #1 ends each lap about 30 seconds ahead of the fastest walker. On the last portion of the whole track meet, Runner #1 takes off in another fast run, falls and twist an angle. All the other runners decide to finally JOG around the track and some of them come in ahead of Runner #1. The fastest Jogger wins the overall track meet.....not the fastest runner. ..........Widder
