  1. Charlie, For similar load performance, you can find load data for the .45 Auto Rim and .45 ACP and see what powders will give you what you are looking for, especially the light to moderate load info. If you don't find any data for the 160 grainers, send me an email and I might have some good data to send you back. ..........Widder (widder1894@icloud.com)
  2. I agree with DOC..... give me the 'beep' and become invisible on the stage unless there is a safety issue. When it comes to the SG KD's, I shoot smokeless and I really don't need anyone yelling at me when I fail to drop the KD. Matter of fact, some folks are a little to quick to yell 'UP' on a slow falling KD. I don't recall ever getting a bad TO. Matter of fact, around here there seems to be some GREAT TO's. You know they are good because when you go to big matches at other venues, some of the locals are ask to be Posse Marshal's and help with TO functions. ..........Widder
  3. KRAZY: right now, I'm having fun 'shooting from the lip'...... RANDY: I've worked on some lofty goals in the past, but sub 3 might be pretty hard for 6. My best run for 5 is 3.32 (I dropped the 6h shell which kept me from a 3.77 run). My best 4 on 4 is 2.30 Mr BADLY: Thats funny. You don't do to 'Badly' with your SG either. Keep practicing. ..........Widder
  4. Randy, That 'valve' replacement actually went from a .6 to a 3.0 I'm sucking in wind like a jet engine now..... And I don't have anymore clogged fuel lines..... I'm starting to feel pity on Red Knee..... ..........Widder
  5. If you have the virus and vote, will it determine WHO you voted for? The Bunkhouse Boss and I voted a couple days ago. We live in a medium sized community and we got there about 20 minutes before the polls open. We still had to stand in line behind about 40 other voters. And when we left the voting place, there were probably 100 more folks who had shown up to vote. ..........Widder
  6. I've thought about that BUT..... because they had to take some veins out of my legs for the by-pass, I have been advised to not take long trips and sit for lengthy periods of time in a vehicle due to a danger of blood clots. Don't get to relaxed, I'm healing well and should be BETTER and FASTER when I get back in the game. The bionics have been renewed, tuned and harmonized. And The Enchantress will be as feisty as ever... ..........Widder
  7. Well, I won't be there regardless of who may or may not bring the butt whoopin..... Looks like I won't be shooting a shoulder firearm till next spring or summer. But, I am healing well and things are starting to feel better. P.S. - TN says its a good thing Y'all ain't shooting for Nanner Puddin. EDIT: sure miss shooting with you fellers. Hope ya have a good time. ..........Widder
  8. You've answered my question. Thanks! If I were there, my Tacoma would have been in the parade also. ..........Widder
  9. Congratulations THREE GUN. Your competition was some dang good top notch shooters. And congratulations to Shamrock Sadie for her Top Lady Overall finish. ..........Widder
  10. I knew this bit of Midway history, but I had to Google the name because I forgot it. Anyhow, 'Richard Best' was the only pilot with bomb hits on 2 of the Japanese carriers. If history serves me correct, he might be THE ONLY U.S. pilot in history to do such a feat. Thats an incredible accomplishment considering all the planes shot down and all the bombs that didn't hit their mark. ..........Widder
  11. I agree Clay. MIDWAY has always been one of my favorite movies with Heston, Ford, etc..... About the only interesting part of the new Midway was when the Japanese recovered 2 of our pilot crew members and tied weights to them and threw them overboard alive. I have read that this actually happened to those guys. ..........Widder
  12. RED thru and thru..... We have a few varmints that are open season, year round, NO limit. If I'm not mistaken, coyote's are on that list. No minimum caliber requirements. Day or night killings have no restrictions. Night hunts are not uncommon. ..........Widder
  13. My comment isn't meant to sound negative, although it might to some Pards. But if some clubs change their shooting format and limit the shooting to 60-75% of what we are use to (10-10-4+), there will be some shooters who ain't gonna travel 1.5+ hours to a match just to shoot a total of 60 rounds. Some clubs the past couple years have started shooting 6 stages a day, instead of 5, because the paying customers wanted MORE shooting, not less. This is just a thought to be considered. Folks, when we all run out, we all run out. We'll just have to weather THIS storm together and hope for the best. ..........Widder
  14. I think the EMS employees would treat the kid without parental permission under the 'Good Samaritan Law'. ..........Widder
  15. Consider your options. Going to jail for protecting yourself and your dog might actually be a small price to pay. Would 12 jurors actually convict you of a crime for killing an attacking coyote? It would be your word against the coyote as to who started the fight..... If you want to carry some protection spray, I think the Bear spray and the Hornet spray are good suggestions. ..........Widder
  16. Seek out OUTLAW GAMBLER here on the Wire or in the Merchants Corner. 97's are his business. There are top shooters who use the Winchester and there are top shooters who use the IAC. I only use the IAC brand, of which a lot of us NON-Top shooters also use. I have a couple 03's and 04's of which have served me well. I also have the CB models (2 of them)and they, in my opinion, are the best made IAC 97's for Cowboy usage. Again, give Outlaw Gambler a holler. He might be your best bet. ..........Widder
  17. Because he was the Rifleman, he could wear anything he wanted..... ..........Widder
  18. Good topic Snakebite. And good point. I've got 2 friends who recently went 'dry'. Both are Cowboy shooters. One was totally dry and the other went dry with their ammo manufactoring supplies and those who bought ammo from them could no longer shoot due to 'no ammo'. The biggest culprit seems to be primers. ..........Widder
  19. I agree with CC. It looks like a Navy watch cap. ..........Widder
  20. Me and you both! I guess others can blame US for our representatives..... Its obvious WE won't get the credit. ..........Widder
  21. I would have told her to "Shut that hole in your face, you ignorant slut". Then I would have added: "This truck belongs to my friend, who is an ederly Black man and has asked me to do some grocery shopping for him because at this time he is unable to get out" ..........Widder
  22. Howdy FJT. 1. Clint's S&W model 29 2. Tom Selleck's rifle in Quigley 3. Duke's model 92 Clints model 29 and Tom's rifle were the center of attention in those movies. Duke's model 92 was never the center of attention in his movies because the Duke hisowndangself was always the center of attention. I think the manner in which he wore his pistol was also iconic. He seem to be a pretty fast draw also. Hope you are doing well my friend. ..........Widder
  23. Thank you, Yusta. And Happy 10/22 Day to you also. I might add that we could also include Kid Rich and wish him a Happy 10/22 day also. I managed to get a NICE Boyd's 10/22 laminate stock from TN Williams this past summer. I'm contemplating building me a 5th 10/22, probably something from KIDD. Since my heart surgery back in August, I haven't shouldered a rifle or SG and probably won't for a couple more months. Healing from the surgery is slow and the nerves in my chest are very tender. Hope you are doing well. ..........Widder
  24. Charlie, that 2nd pic looks like he's camping out up in the Smoky's along those streams. ..........Widder
