Found all this at the range last week. About 300 or so pieces of various calibers.

Here's some randoms for ya'll:

This is a long drive.

I'm excited to see the family this weekend.

I miss reloading.

One of my roommates is a complete fool and undeserving of his MOS.

I'm gonna buy a single stage reloading press when I get back to NC. Might also start casting boolits, depending on local lead sources.

I want cruise control.

I've begun to really hate the first half of January. Tuesday night I was at work until after 8:00 PM (salaried, so no OT), we carpooled that day because of ice on our road, so Wife had to cool her heels at work until I got there to pick her up, then we get home after 9:00 to find one of our ewes in obvious labor, and not having an easy time of it. So we ended up spending an hour trying to catch her, then gave up for a while & went to bed. Wife got up a little after 3:00 to pee, then went out to check on the sheep. Rousted me out of bed soon after, and we finally managed to get a lariat around the ewe's head and one front leg.

Lamb was needing to be out, but was turned wrong, and I couldn't get a grip on it with the surgical gloves and oil lube, so ended up playing OBGYN with bare hands. Fun with a girl, NOT fun with a sheep (unless you're named Ahmed). Lamb was dead anyway, turns out, and looked to be premature anyway. We think one of the rams had butted the ewe in the side recently to be first at the feed, and may have killed the lamb. If he keeps being a butthead like that, he'll join his brother in my freezer, with his hide salted down and his nutsack headed to Trip.

Btw Trip, I haven't reneged on that dried one, just been so busy this week I couldn't get it boxed up to send ya. Ended up working till 7:00 or later 3 nights this week. Some days I really wonder why I ever wanted to be an accountant.

I don't think you bothered at all. Life figures you are still worth having around. Besides, your stories are freaking unbelievably priceless!

Sorry about the little lamb.
The weather here is terrible. After the well below zero cold it is now raining and turning to ice as soon as it hits the ground. I slipped and wrenched my hip. I didn't fall but I have a pretty painful right hip tonight.

Look up a legit one....

The 03-A4 clones are cheaper, but I just like the look of the old school long scope.
