  1. Ironically, my 2+ year old crown popped out on Sunday. No funny taste or anything..... it just popped out. ..........Widder
  2. I'll leave the details up to TN to post. His Wife is still in the hospital but her breathing has stabilized and slightly improving. They still have her on some IV stuff and oxygen but as of Sunday night, she was showing 'some' signs of improvement. As for TN and his daughter..... his daughter hasn't experienced any symptoms. But TN had 'sore bones' for a few days last week and didn't feel too peppy....but he's is starting to feel better, although he still shows signs of addle brain (and I don't say that in a joking manner). He and his family
  3. I've had the same good results. ^ Another 'cheap' yet dependable and fairly accurate ammo I have used is Federal Black Box 36 and 38 grain stuff. Those are bulk boxes and shouldn't cost a lot. Others may have had better results, but I have NEVER had good accuracy with CCI Green Tag, in either my rifles or pistols. ..........Widder
  4. I thank the Good Lord for many things, for things I have and things I don't have. Its easy to give thanks for a job, good health, etc..... But I also give thanks and count it a blessing for things that I don't have in my life or situations I don't have to deal with. Its a blessing not to be confronted with evil or mean spirited people around me. I count it a blessing to live without fear from known and unknown adversaries. It don't bother me if someone isn't my friend..... but I count it a blessing when they ain't my enemy..... ..........Widd
  5. What many deem 'impossible' has been proven possible many times in our sport/game. Your 'Legendary' status has been well earned. I say..... "Go for it". ..........Widder (member of the 6 on 6 in sub 4.0 '97posse)
  6. It started with the legalization of abortion. When society starts to legalize killing of the unborn, it was only a matter of time before the value of life itself became worthless. Man (society and civilizations) no longer find shame in acts of wrongdoing. If accused of a wrongdoing, you are often considered guilty without proof. You are no longer innocent until proven guilty. ..........Widder
  7. ETHAN..... I agree. Happy B'day to the fastest GF I have ever seen also. And he don't miss. And I might add that Bad River Marty is one of the nicest Pards you would meet anywhere, and I'm proud to have shot with him and become friends. He is truly a master with those pistols. Happy Birthday BRM. Here's wishing you good health for many years to come. God Bless. ..........Widder
  8. Well, if my memory serves me well, it goes like this: Uncle Hodge, my Moms brother, lived in Speedwell, TN. on the upper end of Norris Lake. Hunter, lover of women, and Moonshiner. He was also a notorious fisherman. When I was a younger lass, he told me he fished with M-80's. Yep, throw a couple in the lake and scoop up the fish when they float to the top. Well, ole Widder wasn't so wise back then and didn't believe that an M-80 would explode under water. Hodge says..... 'Oh yea. They'll go off anywhere'. Well, to some of you who d
  9. Hey KID, if you think YOU are in trouble, think about this: I got THREE 10/22's. Two of them are basically KIDD because the only part that is Ruger is the magazine. The other 10/22 has a Ruger barrel that has been cut to 16.25", Fedderson receiver, and the internals are KIDD (bolt, trigger, hammer, recoil spring/guide rod, cocking handle, recoil buffer, mag ejector, etc.....) And to go even further, I've 'tweaked' a couple pieces inside for smoother operations, including the slight angling of the bolt area that cocks the hammer during recoil.
  10. That's funny. I liked the part about my nickname.... 'special Ed'. Speaking of Special Ed, remind me to tell you about the time I filled my mom's mop bucket with water and dropped a live M-80 down in it. ..........Widder
  11. Without reading the post above, here is my thoughts: a Ruger BX trigger will serve you well, and you will probably like it. A Volquartsen trigger will serve you VERY WELL and you will probably brag about it to your friends. A KIDD trigger group should only be used in a good KIDD rifle. They are, in my humble opinion, GREAT. I have used all 3 of these triggers. The KIDD is by far, the finest I have used. They have their regular trigger, of which the design is similar to other triggers, but the feel and function is superb. I like the K
  12. It could be a real pic. He could shoot 2 at targets to his left side and the hulls get on hat. Then when he pivoted and jerked his head & shotgun to the right for 2 more shots, the first couple empties would fly off his hat as shown in the pic, while he shoots 2 more shells. Heck, just because others can't do it doesn't mean it isn't possible. P.S. - if you look at the edge of the picture, in front of the muzzle about 4 inches lower, you'll see a glimpse of a 5th shell... Now that IS fast! ..........Widder
  13. Fireball IS fast. But in this pic, where did he get all those shells..... his belt still looks full. ..........Widder
  14. Love Scones. tasty. ..........Widder
  15. The status of MY politicians is........ CRAZY. Oh yea, their all NUTS. We have Red Nuts, Blue Nuts, and Crunchy Nuts (just like my favorite gun lube..... ..........Widder
  16. Actually, I'm listening to it in Roshglitenstein, which is the native language of Mars..... How does the kid see the alien form and no one else does? ..........Widder
  17. ME TOO. I like the humor. ..........Widder
  18. I wish folks would stop spreading malicious rumors about me. I was 15 years and 8 summers. The Teacher had me so long that she went from calling me Mike, then Michael, then Mr.Hill ..........Widder
  19. There is already a .45 Super. Springfield even produced a 1911 a few years back in the .45 Super called the V-16. I owned one and it was a potent pistol. Now, I shoot the .460 Roland, which is just a little more potent than the Super. ..........Widder
  20. I shot a few from the front row also..... ..........Widder
  21. If Godzilla was so tough that even bullets and tank shells couldn't penetrate his tough hide, then why did he always get mad when they shot at him? ..........Widder
  22. There are some pretty good folks running the show at EOT, especially some of those Pards at Paradise Pass. Have a private, personal conversation with them about your situation and see if something can be worked out. I wouldn't sell the guns. ..........Widder
  23. We've lost some good Pards and a couple good friends from this nasty Covid stuff. Its hard to be humorous about it but I will relate a funny story about TN Williams virus problem. He called me today and told me about a dream he had about buying some special 45-70 die (a competition seater die). He actually told me yesterday about that die and sent me an email about it. Turns out, he didn't actually dream about it but he thought his conversation with me and his email was a dream. His trips to the DQ have been restricted somewhat. Those 2 other folk
  24. Two of my favorites: Clint Eastwood in 'Every Which Way But Loose' Clint Eastwood: 'Any Which Way You Can'. ..........Widder
  25. Become a 'Widdermaniac'. I don't belong to nor get involved in FB, Twitter, etc...... My only read and participation is SASS Wire/Saloon, etc..... and a few email with friends. oh yea, membership to become a 'Widdermaniac' is free, but a nominal gift card from DQ is accepted..... ..........Widder
