  1. 'Half-Seven' would be 3:30 a.m. If it were 'Half-30/60', it would be 3:30 p.m. Or better known at 1530. Its just that simple. Heck, even TN Williams can figure that out... ..........Widder
  2. If those anarchist are willing to die for their cause and you are willing to help them fulfill their 'death wish', why should you be labeled a militia member or white supremacist? ..........Widder
  3. Okie, Just a word of caution about the single six models: those that are out there have been made in 2 different grip sizes. So be sure to get the grip sizes you prefer. Personally, I shoot the Ruger single sixes (with the short grip frames) and a Marlin 1894 in .32 H&R mag. They are great guns and will serve you well. As for the Marlins in .32 H&R, there were only about 600 or so of them produced and because of that, they can be expensive in comparison to other 1894 rifles. Good luck. ..........Widder
  4. Isn't that interesting. Regardless of whatever happens in the near future, 'white supremacist ' and 'right wing militias' will get blamed for bad stuff and all the rioting, burning and shootings of innocent children will be overlooked as o.k. because it enhances the cause of Antifa and BLM. ..........Widder
  5. More dangerous than those armed groups are the liberal politicians who seek absolute power and try to make unconstitutional laws and criminalize law abiding citizens. Just think Charlie, with the way some politicians talk, we could soon wake up and find out we are felons because we have a particular firearm thats been demonized or take away ALL your ammo and reloading supplies because someone feels like you only need to have about 5 rounds to protect your home. AND... protecting your home and family by using deadly force could also be determined as criminal and unconstitutional. If people want to fear militia groups, they should first fear those who have helped cause those militia groups. ..........Widder
  6. What do you call 'Target' ammo? I think distributors have the SK, Eley and Lapua brands available. ..........Widder
  7. You would make a trusting foxhole buddy. ..........Widder
  8. Randy, Its good to see you are being able to 'mobilize' yeowndangself. As for meowndangself, I can travel local but the Doc has restricted my 'lengthy' travels. And I must admit, even traveling local bothers me a little. This time NEXT YEAR, all the wannabes will have to fear you and me and our new bionics..... Here's wishing you a complete and speedy recovery. ..........Widder
  9. Howdy Del Rio Pete. Some VERY GOOD comments above. I've never owned a Rossi so my opinion is strictly based on .44 mag vs .45 Colt. Both cartridges can be loaded equally light or equally heavy. Indeed, the .45 Colt can give performances that can equal and sometimes exceed .44 mag performances for pistol and rifle. I've owned .44 mag Rugers and .44 mag Marlins. But after studying up on .45 Colt possibilities, I no longer shoot .44 mag. BUT, I now own and shoot .45 Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter and a 1894 Marlin in .45 Colt. I don't think you will be able to discern much difference in either and If you decide to hunt hog or deer (and maybe bear) with your rifle, I doubt the game you shoot with it will be able to discern the difference, assuming proper bullets are used. If you are gonna push your bullets fast in the rifle for max performance, check out the excellent bullets from Hornady. Both the .44 XTP and .45 XTP perform very well. In my .45 Marlin, I specifically like the 240 gr XTP/MAG, 250 gr XPT and the 300 gr XPT/MAG. I don't think a big hog or bear east of the Mississippi would survive being popped with that 300 XTP/MAG. Good luck with which ever one you choose. ..........Widder
  10. its possible that .22 ammo I SOLD him won't fire. It wouldn't fire for me so I thought maybe being in another Time Zone would make it work. ..........Widder
  11. What was wrong with his Henry .22? Both of them are 'Widder Soft Strokes' of which he loves and tells me they are great. ..........Widder
  12. Mine are also roughly at the 9 and 3 o'clock position at my hip bone area. And both holsters have an approx. 20+ degree muzzle forward cant. ..........Widder
  13. Thanks Alpo. I fixed it. My fingers type faster than my brain can think..... ..........Widder
  14. If the LEO ask: 'Do you mind if I look around' You reply: 'NO' (implying that you don't mind if they look around) You have basically given the LEO permission to look around because of the nature in which the question was ask and then answered. If the LEO ask: 'Can I look around' You reply: 'NO' You have denied the LEO permission to look around. Be very specific in your communications.....

  15. Clint Smith might use his handgun to fight his way to the rifle, but ole Widder uses his handguns to keep the Perps from reaching their rifle. ..........Widder
  16. Howdy Bgavin, Normally, we never hear about the successful expansion characteristics of our HP bullets but folks are quick to talk about those few that didn't expand, for various reasons. I have done some unscientific test over the years and can attest that A LOT of the various HP bullets will expand and a FEW don't. But from my experience, our HP bullets give good results for their intended purposes. But please note that a .355 HP bullets designed for 9mm will probably not give you good performance if you fire that same bullet in a .357 SIG, which also uses .355 bullets. That is why folks like Speer will make their Gold Dot bullets for 9mm and a specific bullet for .357 SIG, because of velocity variations. Personally, I think caliber and expected velocity have a lot to do with how the HP functions, or fails to function. For 9mm, I like the Speer 124 gr. Gold Dot For .357 SIG, I like the Speer 125 gr. Gold Dot and 125 grain Hornady XTP. And I really like the factory Remington 125 gr Golden Sabre. For 10 mm, I like the 150 Nosler, 165 Sierra V-Crown. I don't think I've tested the XTP in 10mm. For the .460 Rowland (which is .45 caliber), I like the 185 Hornady XTP, 185 Gold Dot, 185 Sierra JHP and the 200 Sierra V-Crown. For my hot .45 Colt loads, I basically stick with 250 Hornady XTP and 300 Hornady XTP/Mag. I load my .357 SIG, 10mm, .460 Rowland and .45 Colt loads rather warm to hot, for top performance. Based on the caliber and the velocities that I use for these bullets, they all perform very well. If you get on You Tube, you can find info and charts that others have posted that show velocity ranges, penetration and expansion averages of 5 shots for many of our HP bullets. ..........Widder
  17. Love the picture, PWB. I bet that jawbone would slay 1000 'Rankers'. ..........Widder
  18. I tried to shoot ambidextrous but my 3rd arm kept getting out of sequence. ..........Widder
  19. SLATER will also be a gun vendor at the match. Don't forget to give him a visit. ..........Widder
  20. Marshal, that RED Barracuda would be a prized possession today. Beautiful car. ..........Widder
  21. "A man that can smile when something goes wrong has thought of someone he can blame it on". P.S. - I'd bet a DQ Blizzard that TN Williams had something to do with it. ..........Widder
  22. Well, if you look at Randy St. Eagles credits listed on his post, you should realize shooting with BOTH hands, like Randy, speaks volumes: 2011-2012 TN Duelist champ 2013-14,15,16 and 17 TN Senior Duelist champ 2014 and 2017 Southeast Regional Senior Duelist champ 2016 & 2017 Senior Duelist WORLD CHAMP 2018 Silver Senior Duelist WORLD CHAMP Randy whoops on his fair share of good gunfighters also. I will add that there is more than being able to shoot with both hands. Randy, and other top shooters, know how to transition using both hands: they grab rifle and SG with both hands, they can also grab shells with both hands, etc..... ..........Widder
  23. Marshal, we have similar taste in fine cars. My favorite was the 'pre-catalytic converter' Duster, 340, etc..... ..........Widder
  24. TOMMY, with you teaching Scarlett to make ear plugs and some fine Gunfighters teaching her some skill and mental techniques, you might be looking at a futuristic FAMOUS person. Heck, she already makes great bullets. I never miss with those magnetic bullets she sold me. And as requested, I didn't tell TN Williams about them either. Love BOTH of you and will continue to pray for healing in your eye problems. ..........Widder
