    Re: the 32" SxS shooting like a rifle,I know not many of u are going to believe this,I shot a video about 15 or 18 yrs ago where I'm hitting a 12" balloon @ 165 yds. using # 4 shot w/it,the video is on the internet someplace but those of u that know me & my dis-like of this "evil machine" & lack of skill w/it I couldn't tell u how to find it.There's a real long story that goes w/why I did it but I don't have the patience to type it out.

    General Yeager set an altitude record with an NF-104. 120,000 feet if memory serves me correctly. This is not the one on display, because he also set a depth record with that aircraft sinking it deeply into the ground

    James Arness - 6' 7"
    Chuck Connors - 6' 6"
    Clint Walker - 6' 6"
    Clint Eastwood - 6' 4"
    The Duke - 6' 4"
    Dan Blocker - 6' 4"
    Richard Boone - 6' 1"
    Allen Ladd - 5' 6" Poor guy often had to stand on an off-camera lift to kiss his leading ladies!

    It is said that only the Duke and Connors could swing/cock a Model 92 Winchester with one hand. Of course, Conners did it in every opening scene of the Rifleman. The Duke did it on horseback in what very likely was his most famous scene riding down the Ned Pepper gang in True Grit. Sadly, all are gone now except the Man With No Name.
    This thread seems to have a long life. Just to throw in two cents - Sometimes the guy nick-named "Shorty" was the most Dangerous!

    For sure. Luke Short was only about 5' 5" tall, but he was quick and determined and he killed at least 11 adversaries with his first shot, or so the story goes.

    James Arness would have been considered a giant had he lived in the actual old west. Most guys back then were under 6' and might weigh 150.

    Somewhere I read that just since world war two the average Japanese is much taller. When I was a kid I seldom seen anyone as tall as my dad but now do every day. It has to be something in the food. Also might be people have the money to eat out like they didn't before the war. You see the revolutionary war uniforms they wore in museums and they look like they were made for 13 year old kids.
    Something is causing it and what else could it be but the food we eat?

    I am fairly sure more of us know the Duke better than the Duck of Death, although the latter was a delightfully inspired insult.

    The Texas Confederate Museum is just about 10 miles from me and I go there quite often,. I am amazed at how small the uniforms are on display. Boot sizes around a 6-7 too. They say food preservatives have made people taller. Who knows. I can tell you they are getting heavier!

    PS: Most of John Waynes friends called him "Duke".

    I read that Arness was the first soldier off his landing craft at Anzio, in the event the water was deep. That battle might have been called off had it been Alan Ladd.
