  1. Snake Oil George has been busy working overtime trying to teach Red Knee how to shoot an 1897 shotgun..... Its a full time job. He is still active in 'some' gunsmithing work. ..........Widder
  2. I can't believe I read this whole thread for nothing...... absolutely nothing. I already know'd about that Gee-O-Nomitree stuff. ..........Widder
  3. ADVISE: you don't want 'bucket' holsters for short barreled revolvers. Get a holster that will give your gun a 'snug' fit. I shoot 3" barreled Ruger Vaq and although the holsters are not tight, they are snug and keeps the revolvers from 'bouncing out' while moving on the stage. ..........Widder
  4. He fought a courageous fight against overwhelming odds with that type cancer. He was open and honest about it because he knew he had millions of fans concerned about his health. My wife don't watch much TV, but she sure was a Jeopardy fan and liked Alex. May God Bless and may he rest in peace. ..........Widder
  5. DOC, I think you are 100% correct. The repair person probably just had to ensure that inner chassis had not been damaged from the OOB, replace needed parts, and ship back to its proud daddy. I hope they can figure out the cause of the OOB situation. When something like that happens, especially with the power of the 357 sig cartridge, it ain't pleasant and can be intimidating. Other than a .22 rimfire, the .357 Sig is the lightest powered cartridge that I shoot. I just hope my 10mm and 460 Rowland never experiences an OOB. Wanna know a little secret: The 357 Sig OOB ain't much different than the 460 Rowland being fired in battery..... . ..........Widder
  6. And don't forget the "Keep Fingers Away" warning etched on the inside of the ejection port cover... ..........Widder
  7. I've heard the same thing. And I think Henry Repeating Arms does the same with their rifles. ..........Widder
  8. As a Vol fan, I feel your pain. ..........Widder
  9. I bought a new SIG P320 about 5+ years ago. Never experienced any problems except it was way more accurate than I could shoot it. It was in .357 SIG caliber. A couple years back, SIG adhered to a voluntary return to upgrade the P320 trigger safety, or atleast that was my understanding of the situation. Last summer, SIG issued a letter to P320 owners about a law suit concerning OOB problems. It seems that an owner (or owners) of the P320 had experienced some OOB discharges and issued a suit against SIG. SIG never admitted to the OOB problems but they settled out of court, of which they stated in their letter (email). About 2 weeks after I received their email (letter), I was out shooting my P320 and guess what...... KA-BOOM! I got an OOB. An OOB with a cartridge like the .357 SIG ain't no peepsqueek awakening. It blew back the slide and locked it open. It blew out the Extractor, which I never found. It blew out the magazine and actually separated it on the ground in 4 parts: follower, spring, base plate and mag body. It split the right side of the grip in atleast 2 areas. AND, the brass casing was stuck half way in the chamber and the complete rim area was blown off..... completely off. It didn't damage me or my hand other than a good sting in my hand. I notified SIG immediately. This was last summer/fall. Two weeks ago, they finally notified me back and ask me to send the pistol. I shipped it 1 week ago. Today, they sent me an email stating it had been repaired and is in the mail coming back to me. I should get it early in the week. I'm eager to see if they were able to replace the parts or if they are sending me a new pistol. I hope its repaired because its one of my favorite pistols.....its actually my #1 carry pistol. ..........Widder
  10. I've always known that folks up North and folks down South have a lot more in common than they realized. But I must admit that the Southern Kangaroo hops higher and snacks on fried Okra. ..........Widder
  11. They probably gave the shooter 3 'P's........ ..........Widder
  12. Sorri TN, but 'P' is your middle name..... as in nanr 'P'udding. ..........Widder
  13. Charlie, to bad a lot of others didn't feel that way the past 4 years. ..........Widder
  14. This thread is kinda ironic in that I was thinking about posting the same thing. Actually, I was gonna post the question of how many Wire pards are sick and tired of whiney Joe siliciting for medical stuff AND..... Tom Select trying to get folks to sell their houses. I like Tom, but those advertisements get old. ..........Widder
  15. My first ever favorite song was "Sink the Bismarck" and "Battle of New Orleans". I was just about 10 years old and my older brother had the Johnny Horton album with both songs on it. ..........Widder
  16. When the CowGIRLS wanna dance with Widder, this is how they cut up the dance floor.....
  17. I think the PUMP will give you more control with your followup shots, assuming you fire 2 or more rounds. With the AUTO, you might be a little too excited and your trigger finger might go nuclear and climb up the wall, missing your intended target. Other comments that favor the AUTO over the PUMP are also valid. P.S. - they BOTH have a favored place at Fort Widder. ..........Widder
  18. My favorite Saloon pard is: ALPO But, my favorite Wire pard is: Garrison Joe and Driftwood Johnson. ..........Widder
  19. TN Williams sez stuff like this is exactly what happens when he ain't at a match to help keep folks straighten out. ..........Widder
  20. Purly, I did that once at Cleveland. I dropped both poppers (one on each side of the berm) and then grabbed 2 more shells and was able to get both shots off while the fliers were still airborne. To my dismay, I missed both of them. BUT..... I did get those 2 shots off while both birds were in the air. NO, the SG was not preloaded... ..........Widder
  21. PURLY, please clarify. Are you saying that the shooter hits the KD with the THIRD shot but the FOURTH shot failed to fire at the bird, OR, are you saying the shooter attempted to shoot the KD BUT the round didn't fire? ..........Widder
  22. One of my favorites. Congratulations Sadie. ..........Widder
  23. I would wait until Wednesday evening to reply and tell them you went to the voting pole during your lunch hour and they were close. You were going to vote for her but the poles were closed. "Better luck next time". ..........Widder
