  1. TN Williams has created a 'wasp' load for his .38 pistol and in conjunction, I have created a 'Wasp' load for my .45 Colt Ruger. We both had .38 brass and .45 brass manufactured to hold the 209 Primers. We both had some paraffin bullets, of which we cut into 1/8" thick pieces, just enough to seal the case. We filled the respective cases about full with 'Walnut tumbling media'. With just the power of the 209 primer, you would be surprised at the potent results.....enough power to decimate a wasp nest and all the wasp on it. TN William
  2. And a lot of that is determined by how hard the shooter pulls the trigger..... Everybody knows the harder you pull the trigger the faster the bullet goes. ..........Widder
  3. I agree J Bar. I enjoyed my afternoon (yesterday & today) shooting, although today, I focused more on some center fire pistols. ..........Widder
  4. Three Foot, barrel is 4" long. Shooting distance is 10 yds. ..........Widder
  5. I got one, NIB. Whew, what a dandy of a pistol. This one was once owned by Dr. Bottlestopper, custom pearl pimp grips and an engraved heart on its grip backstrap. You'll love it. ..........Widder
  6. Thanks for all the replies. I mic'd both sights and they are both .402 Yes, it is factory set up for a red dot sight system, and I may put a Holosun GR dot on it. I like green better than red. ..........Widder
  7. I have a semi auto Pistol with a very high front site and very high rear sight. BOTH sights are the same height. The Pistol shoots POA is also POI, which works good for me. QUESTION: If BOTH of the HIGH sights are the same height, will the POA still produce POI if BOTH sights are lowered the same? To help with my inquiry, I use the sights basically recommended by manufacturers with the top of the front sight being level with the top of the rear sight. Thanks. ..........Widder
  8. Right now, 'WE' still have the Supremes on our side. ..........Widder
  9. He IS the #1 liar in all of Tennessee. And that says a lot! ..........Widder
  10. And before I get to old also..... I turn 70 in the spring. Always glad to help someone learn the Marlin 1894 and Henry .22 ..........Widder
  11. I've seen that technique on a few Marlins. Hour glassing or thinning the steel can effect the integrity and strength of the steel. BUT, if you take about 1/2 of the bend out of the loading gate spring, this keeps the integrity of the steel while also 'softening' its tension, allowing easier manipulation of it while pushing ammo thru it. Just another thought to consider when working on the Marlin. ..........Widder
  12. Krazy, If I were running for a political office, I would be incline to hire you for my Public Relations Officer. You have indeed secured your life long friendship status with Barkeep due to your care and concern for his SKB. Red Knee, of Oklahoma fame, uses my special lube on all of his original Winchester 97 shotguns, which has propelled him into probably the Top 5 97 shooters in the country. In his own testimony, he states that he was a NOBODY until he started using the Widder's special lube. After that, he won the Oklahoma speed SG event, the SW Regi
  13. Hey bgavin, move to TN, close to me. I just got back from the field out behind my house where I spent the early noon hours blasting away with a couple 9mm pistols and a couple 460 Rowland 1911's. And yes, I have neighbors but nobody complains. And if shooting practice starts to bore you, we can spice it up by trying to get a coyote, groundhog or crow. Life is good in East Tennessee! ..........Widder
  14. I've owned and shot so many .22 rifles and pistols in my life time, that I'm surprised some one doesn't manufacture a 'Widder .22' brand..... Howdy FJT. Just the history of the .22 should take up your whole show. And in modern times, the .22 pistols/revolvers/rifles have never given the shooter more options to acquire their 'dream' .22, although some of our dreams still center around owning one of the classics from Marlin, Winchester, Remington, Mossberg, etc..... Take care of yeself. ..........Widder
  15. Tomorrow is fine. Please don't leave oil in your tube because it will help attract dust and hold crud longer. That's why many folks wax and polish the inside of the tube. Talk with you soon. Be sure to ask me about the loading gate issue. ..........Widder
  16. BCB, if ya want to, give me a call and I will give you a couple 'easy' mods to help with your rifle. 865 / 696-1996 ..........Widder
  17. TWO cartridges lengths longer than the tube is sufficient. BUT, if its a new spring, make it 3 cartridges lengths for the first 2-3 months of usage to allow it to 'set'. Then trim it down to about 2 cartridge lengths which may not have to be done because the 'set' may end up the correct length. You should have no trouble with rounds moving smoothly in the tube if you keep it clean. When you have it apart, clean it and give it a little wax and polish to help keep it clean. And don't forget to keep your follower clean also. EDIT: how hard is it t
  18. I would buy the rifle and of course, lots of ammo for years ahead. I've owned a couple 444 Marlins and although they didn't appease me as much as the 45-70, they were still great calibers and great rifles. Of the 1/2 dozen or so Remlins I handled during their last year of ownership, their 1894's and 1895's seemed like nice rifles. Heck, I've been tempted myself to buy a 336 in 30-30 lately because it was a 20" Octagon barrel. Great woods gun. Good luck. ..........Widder
  19. it won't be long before someone creates a 'bomb drop' device for a drone. Then we will be able to see napalm dropped on snake dens and large herds of pigs down in Texas. ..........Widder
  20. Indeed. I remember that. Believe it was page 36, 2nd para. ..........Widder
  21. CC, you should be able to send me a PM now. Be sure to add some info about them. THANKS! ..........Widder
  22. I think thats where a Pro football or basketball player gets caught shoplifting..... ..........Widder
  23. Somebody needs to bring them to my attention and sponsor them. ..........Widder
  24. What made you post that video/song? It IS one of my favorites. ..........Widder
  25. Well, I was considering it after I talk to the other Council members to get their input. There would certainly have to be some definite qualifications and requirements. Stay tune! ..........Widder
