    Though many remember him as a pitch man for lawyers, I remember him as 'Napoleon Solo' from the TV show 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' Some call it a knock-off of the James Bond films, I prefer to think of him as the cool guy with the neat guns. George Lucas must have thought so too.

    died this week. I just got done watching "Jesse Stone: Sea Change", based on one of his books. These made for TV movies, starring Tom Selleck, show just how good story-telling can be, and how good TV can be, when they try. The first five movies are available on DVD, the sixth one will be...

    I haven't been over here in a few months but I wanted to just say thanks. This morning I read and posted on a thread on the Leatherwall about shooting. I am by no means a good bow shot but I am by night and day a better bow shot than I was before exposing myself to the above folks in...

    Robert, I think the bow raffle was a great idea to create some fun out here at the site. Good form. Cato

    Guys, I just got a call from Tammy Williams, Roberts wife. Robert had a heart attack and underwent surgery today to clear a blocked artery. :( The good news is that he is doing well and should be able to leave the hospital this weekend. His first concern was that we all watch the...

    Two methods diverged on the leatherwall, And sorry I could not pretend to both And be one archer, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where shafts vanished in undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having a less instinctive claim, Because it was grassy and...

    Hank and Piney have convinced me to get Quinned. I want to use my last old Blk Bear riser and a set of 60 in. Stallion limbs. Here are the issues, as I see them: 1. How wide are the Stallions (1.5 in or 1.75 in. at the limb bottoms?)? 2. The Stallion riser has 14-15 degree limb pads and the...

    ok, Ive used the mountian muffler on some bows that I couldn't get quiet and once I put the string on them it made it so quiet people who heard it before couldn't believe it. THAT'S NOT THE AWESOME PART! I sent Robert a string to replace a silencer that my cat ate (my fault for leaving it...

    Well there was a guy named Robert Williams that was National Archery Champion in 1883 and 1902 -- my Robert, you sure show your age well. Ed Rhode was National Champion in 1963, he lives in Muscatine, Iowa -- about 35 miles from me. He is getting up there in age, I think this year is the first...

    Robert, please excuse my balky description, but this is how I apply the center serving. Assuming the braced bow is standing between my knees with the string toward me and the riser facing away, I begin my center serving from the bottom and wind toward the top in a clockwise direction around the...
