Sounds like a cover story to me. You been hanging out with any "gardeners"?

Reminds me of a time the FBI was doing an investigation (medicare fraud) at a psych hospital. They were serving a search warrant for records- something that takes hours to go thru. Getting late, the Feds decided to send out for pizza.

Imagine you are the guy on the phone at the pizza joint. You get a call. They want you to deliver pizzas to the Psych hospital. A lot of pizzas. To the folks there at the psych hospital that work for the FBI.

That is one version of the lack of logic behind "never carry your handloads"...
Especially if you engrave "your name here" on the projectiles and/or casings.

When I first moved into my home, I kept getting calls for the local florist. When I finally looked in the phone book, I saw the last four number of their phone number was the same as my number....mine is 5578. After some investigation, I discovered the REAL number to the florist was 5518. This was back in the day when everything was hand written. I guess the phone book people misread the numbers written down and put in my number. I would just politely give any callers the correct number. (This was back in 1987.)

Until.........one day an older lady called. I answered, "Hello." She asked if this was the florist. I told her, "No." She started yelling at me she was calling long distance and it was an expensive phone call and if I wasn't the florist then why the heck did I answer the phone?

Did you answer "Because my phone rang when you dialed the wrong number!"

Yes, of course I did. She still was very mad at me for answering when I wasn't the florist. But this was in 1986 or so when long distance calls were kind of pricey and she sounded quite elderly and probably on a fixed income. I'm not even sure she quit yelling at me long enough to give her the correct number like I usually did. If I remember right, after she hung up, my phone rang again within minutes and I just didn't answer it.

Here's a question: what exactly is the reason for Charles Daly shutting down? I know some of their guns are kinda crappy, as I've owned a few, but that hasn't stopped a lot of companies. The whole thing seems shrouded in mystery, but I just can't seem to find the Hardy Boys at the moment.
